Penguin Christmas

And since cute Doodlebug stickers were still sitting on my crafty desk, I had to make just one more card -- this time with penguins and a scripty Merry die.

Thanks for reading!

Merry Truck!

A simple little card today featuring a Doodlebug sticker. I think it's a fun way to create a card for a kiddo or two and I've already got a couple potential little ones that might see this card in their mailbox...

Merry Christmas, Dude!

Today's card is a masculine card with a fresh and frosty palette. I love the skiing bears from My Favorite Things for guy cards - that extreme sport element is always fun, but the bear adds a bit of cuteness too. A quirky sentiment from Paper Smooches ties everything together.

Unbelievable Holiday

Today's card features a cute little Birdie Brown yeti with a snowy scene. I used an oval shape for a panel, as it creates a fun design that's different from my usual rectangles and circles.

Unicorn Sleigh

December is going to be a busy busy busy month! Between work, holidays and family activities, card-making might take a back seat for a short while. So, please excuse me if I share things very sporadically over the next month or so.

Today's card is a cute idea I had for a unicorn-pulled sleigh. I thought it would be a cute concept and I paired up a couple of sets that have been on my "use" list for some time.

Thanks for reading!

Merry Skaters

Sometimes you just need a quick and simple little card, and that's when it helps to have a few pre-colored images in your stash. I've held onto these two images since last Christmas, though, and I thought it was time to make good use of them. With a simple scene and some snowflakes made from Nuvo drops, I think it turned out pretty sweet.

Thanks for reading.

Fuzzy Sweater

Ever since I got the Cool Day stamp set from Birdie Brown, I wanted to make a big fuzzy sweater for this bear. I finally managed to make a texture I liked and I paired it with a fun striped paper and a whimsy sentiment.

Thanks for reading!

Christmas Bear

I took a step back into the traditional with the reds, creams, kraft and a bit of green. I used one of my all-time favorite Christmas sentiments from Technique Tuesday and I paired it with the adorable bear from Reverse Confetti. It was a really simple card to make, but I like how all the different elements play together.

Thanks for reading.

Navy and Grey Greetings

I thought I'd switch things around a little bit and try for a more sophisticated palette of white, gray and navy blue. I did make it very cute again by adding Pix and her tree, but I like how frosty the card turned out. I was inspired by the background paper and thought it would be fun to try out a different layout.

Thanks for taking a look!
