Christmas in the air

Hello crafty friends. I hope you had a fabulous Thanksgiving.
We did! It's one of my favorite celebrations.
Now, back to normal, working on more Christmas cards.
I used the Freshly Made Sketches # 114 for this one
And I used an old Seize the Sketch for this one
I'm still behind in my Christmas list, but I'm happy I could make all these today.
Thanks for your visit!
Have a blessed weekend.

I was so busy working on Christmas cards that I almost forgot it's only a week to Thanksgiving.
I love this celebration (new to me)! With so many things to be thankful for, I love sending cards for this occasion.
I used the fabulous sketch at Seize the sketch # 8  for my first card.
And for the second...
I'm also entering this to The Paper Players # 172 , CAS with leaves.
And I used the Retro Sketches # 90 for my card number 3.
All the papers and sequins I used are by Lawn Fawn 'Into the woods', the cute leaves are the "stitched leaves die" also by LF
Thanks for your visit! Have a blessed Friday.

Christmas 1

Hello everybody!
I hope all of you are having a great week.
In the past 2 weeks I was making Christmas card for this year's Caring hearts card drive, but unfortunately in my last trip in September I lost the charger for my camera, and I didn't realized it until my camera was completely dead, ooops!
I have few pics that I'll share later.
I have one  to share today, that I made using the CAS(e) this sketch # 54
The paper in the background is Lawn Fawn 'Peace, love joy', as is the mistletoe twine, the ornament is a die by Lil' Inker designs.
Love that sketch, I'll be using it again soon.
Thanks for visiting and have a blessed rest of the week.

November birthdays

Hi there crafty friends! I hope all of you had a wonderful weekend.
I'm sharing two more cards I made on Friday. The first one is for a friend whose birthday was on Saturday. I used again the sketch at Seize the Sketch # 7

The second card is for a friend whose birthday is tomorrow. I used the Paper Players # 169 sketch.
I used mostly scraps for this one.
For the banners I used washi tape on white cardstock that I cut with a Lil' Inker Designs die.
I'm linking this one to Simon Says Stamps Monday Challenges and Simon Says Stamps Wednesday challenge "Anything goes".
Before leaving, I want to share with you what fall looks like in my neighborhood.
Have a blessed week! Thanks for your visit!

New neighbors

Hello crafty friends! I wish all of you a wonderful Friday.
It's 'play day' for me, it's my day off because I have to work the weekend. :)
Two families moved to our neighborhood this past week. One of them is our next door neighbor, I haven't met them yet, so I decided to welcome them with cards and some house plants.
For one of the cards I used the sketch at Retro Sketches # 87

The red panel is embossed with the "Acanthus" EF by Cutlebug, for the trees I used 'Lil' inkers design' die and I used Kelly Purkey's alphabet stickers to write Welcome, as I don't have a stamp for that word. The house is a wood veneer piece by Studio Calico. I like how it turned out.

For the other card I used the sketch at "Seize the sketch" # 7 (I know I can't pass a good sketch! LOL).

This one was very easy to put together, the papers are Lawn Fawn and came in the SSS October Card Kit. Another piece of wood veneer by Studio Calico and Letter stickers by Recollections. I do hope the recipients like them.
I'm also linking these two to Simon Says Stamps challenge Wednesday,  and Simon Says Stamps challenge Monday, is "Everything goes" week.
Thanks for visiting! Have a blessed day.
