Happy holidays

Hello! There's (still) 130 days until Christmas 😁


I quite like this Christmas card. I randomly stamped snowflakes to create a background, and used the YNS Christmas Chickies paired with a sentiment from Lawn Fawn Winter Penguin. For some pizazz, I created a tiny wire coil behind the chickie, but it's a bit on the short side to be wobbling much.

Again, I was inspired by an old Mojo Monday sketch and the current YNS colour challenge:

Warm wishes

 Hello!

The inspiration for this card came from the Coffee Loving Cardmakers' Sunday Sip and Share:
I embossed snowflakes where the large circles are in the sketch, and falling snow where the small circles are, but they appear much more subtle than I would like, and I'm not sure that they even show up in the photo. Ah well. Live and learn!

The chickie is from the ever-adorable Your Next Stamp Christmas Chickie, and I created the sentiment using the Concord and 9th Perfectly Penned set. This letter set is completely amazeballs. It's so forgiving and I want to stamp it literally everywhere

This card is for Christina Hor's Cards for Little Hearts card drive - there's still time!

Holiday wishes


I feel card makers sometimes skip seasons altogether. Last week, I was in full summer mode for the coffee lovers blog hop; now, I am diving back into Christmas cards! This card is for Christina Hor's Cards for Little Hearts card drive.


The patterned paper with the adorable reindeer is from Michaels. The sentiment is from Hero Arts' Layering Christmas Tree. Overall, a pretty easy-peasy card.
