Masculine Birthday Cards

Just in case I haven't mentioned (giggle) that I had a big event in October and had a lot of left over cut card supplies, let me re-iterate. I had plenty of extra left overs but used all the bases that applied to my Christmas cards from the left over pile. But I still had the same extra focal pieces. So, see this card?

I used that same bit for the focal image and created these cards:
Stamps: Uncharted Territory, Upsy Daisy, Thoughts & Prayers, Sentimental Journey (retired), Happiness is A Journey (retired)
Ink: Night of Navy, Cherry Cobbler, Wild Wasabi
Paper: Bashful Blue, Cherry Cobbler, Wild Wasabi, Night of Navy, Crumb Cake
Accessories: Neutral Brads, Mat Pack

A new theme!

Yep, Christmas is over. Did you enjoy yours? I hope so. We had a lovely Christmas and it wasn't stormy for travel, yeay!

One of the gifts I was working on was a stack of birthday cards for my MIL. My husband is the youngest of a large family and each of his siblings have their own family and some of them are old enough for their own family, etc. The point is, from his parents down the family is over 100 people strong. Really. And his parents send a birthday card to each and every member of this family. So I wanted to help make a dent in that! *grin

Unfortunately (for them) I only got 35 done. Fortunately for you, that means a couple new things to see! We'll start with these:
This uses Pear Pizzaz as the base, the DP and the marker color for the tray the cupcakes are on. I did one almost the same with Blushing Bride, but that photo won't load right now...

Teacher Gifts

Soooo my life is incredibly busy and seems to just be more busy each day, rather than slowing down. So it was very, very last minute that I got teacher gifts done. Liiiike, 1am the night before the last day of school for the season? Yup. So here's what I put together for the two female teachers: A bundle of cards in a gift sack, with a few hershey's kisses in there too.

and here's what I did for the male teacher: homemade caramel corn in a bucket. (do men like stacks of cards??)

The kicker? After staying up til 1 to make sure these were done, and feeling guilty for not doing something for the bus driver (at my son's request)...we woke up to no power. My husband got online with his phone to discover that originally the buses had been cancelled, but now school in our whole district was cancelled. We got a SNOW DAY!!! We never get snow days!! But, its been snowing since before I woke up Monday morning. This is about 730 Tuesday morning:

Still going...

These cards use current focal images but retired DP. But here's a few more ideas if you're like me and still working on cards!

Have a Cherry Cobbler Christmas...

What can I say, that song is in my head! *smile*

This card was super quick to whip up becuase the DP is the back of one of those cards below, already cut into strips!

Ink: Cherry Cobbler, Chocolate Chip
Paper: Cherry Cobbler & Crumb Cake card stocks, Deck the Halls DP
Accessories: Regals Brads

A different sheet...

I apologize for the absence, I have been very busy with the normal holiday happenings on top of the rest of life, and am still not quite done with Christmas cards! I am very seriously thinking of doing the few Christmas cards a month next year. Better yet, if I get a new computer before then I can whip up a cute style or two or three on My Digital Studio software, select how many I need and hit PRINT. Then they're done! ....that'd be really nice.... *grin

So here is the same idea I showed last week, just using a different sheet of DP!
Quick, easy, and beautiful!

Easiest card ever!

I am still working on my Christmas cards! Are you? So last night I got 18 more done and these are by far the easiest cards EVER.

I started with three card-sized pieces (1 1/2 sheets) of Crumb Cake card stock and this sheet of the Deck the Halls DP from the mini.
 and here's the result:

SOOO easy and I think absolutely beautiful! Yeay!!

Christmas Sketch!

Its been a while! Did you have a nice Thanksgiving? We had a wonderful day and a long weekend. Now its time for the Christmas rush! I'm certainly not ready to mail out my Christmas cards so I took some time yesterday and played with this week's sketch from Jen's SSFYTT and made this:

Stamps: Greeting Card Kids, Come to Bethlehem
Ink: Always Artichoke, Basic Black
Paper: Very Vanilla, Cherry Cobbler, Deck the Halls DP
Accessories: Bitty Buttons, Blender Pens, Mini Glue Dots

Its similar to others I'm making this year, and I am loving the vintage look.

Anyway, hopefully with the need for Christmas cards, I'll be posting more again!
