My second Christmas card design. I bought these last year but didn't get the time to use it so I made sure it was on the short list of stamps to use for this year.
Stamp Set: Mouse, Mouse feet and Twas the Night all from AMuse
Colours: Whisper White, Real Red and Basic Black
Accessories: Star dust Stickles
The envelope Album, another Secret Sister gift i've got ready to send. I hadn't remembered that I posted one of these a couple of months ago, but this one is WAY better! I've been tweeking the original design.
Even though the photo is a bit wonky and the bling on the bottom of the butterfly doesn't look like its laying straight but it is in real life. Click on the pictures to get upclose, the shadow is bad I apologize but I take a lot of my pictures at night after i've finished them.
Stamp Set: So Swirly Jumbo Wheel, Teeny Tiny Wishes "friend to friend"
Colours: Basic Grey, Basic Black
Accessories: Clear Rhinestone brads, Modern Label and Word Window punches, Beautiful Butterfly Bigz Bigshot Diecut, Large and Scalloped Circle punches and Swirl embossing folder
It is quite easy to make, just takes a while.
The quote on the inside says "A friend is someone who knows the song in your heart and sings it to you when you forget the words"

I LOVE this and I'll be doing a class for it in January along with some Valentine cards. Email me if you're interested in coming.
Last week I made and sent these 3 Christmas cards off to my Secret Sister in Kelowna. All of them are Stampin' Up! only and they turned out quite well. I like the green trees so much I'm using it as one of the Christmas card designs i'll send out this year.

Happy Boo to You!
I made up some Boo! bags and dropped them off at a couple of friends in the neighbourhood. Its like a Secret Santa but for Halloween :) There is a cute poem about spreading some Halloween Boo! and putting treats inside. In addition to the regular little Halloween candy I just had to make some things.

Chocolate pudding and gummy worms for "Worms in dirt" dessert, Halloween pencils, a grave matchbox that's done up as a graveyard- inside is some candy. Peppermint paddies made up like spiders and a sign to colour to let other's know you've been "Boo'd" I also wrapped up a full chocolate bar with twill and glued googlie eyes on it to look like a Mummy.
It was a bunch of fun, i'm going to start it earlier this year and see if I can get the neighbourhood in on it.
