Time for Snowflakes

Hello. If you celebrated Thanksgiving last week, I hope it was wonderful! I had a lovely dinner with my all of my sons and their families. It was the first time we had Thanksgiving all together in 4 or 5 years and I loved it.

I finally have a card to share. November has just about slipped away and I haven't been able to make any cards in so long.

For this card I die cut a retired Memory Box snowflake die, Beaded Snowflake, from CS 4 times and from white DCWV Glitzy Glitter paper once. I adhered all the die cuts together with Multi Matte and then inlaid the piece into one of the CS pieces that had been die cut with SSS Stitched Rectangles. It was then adhered to my card base. The sentiment is from WPlus9 Iconic Christmas. Some clear gems finish off my card. I hope you can see the glimmer and sparkle. It is lovely IRL.

I am entering this into the following challenges:
     Freshly Made Sketches #214 - a sketch by Jen T.
     Time Out Challenge #45 - Snowflakes are Winter's Butterflies
     Paper Players #273 - Tic Tac Toe challenge by Sandy. I have a diagonal tic tac toe left to right with snowflake, sparkle or shine and punch or die cut.

It's back to work for me tomorrow. Have a wonderful week. Enjoy!

Sweet 16

Hello. Sorry, I've been extremely sick again. Sadly, I've been out of work for days, but unable to do anything. The only card I've made is one for my granddaughter's 16th birthday.

I finally used my WPlus9 Bubble Talk stamp and die sets. Aren't they adorable? The number balloons are Avery Elle Numbered Balloons dies. The pattern paper is one of my favorite collections - Lawn Fawn Let's Polka. It doesn't get any better than elephants, balloons and polka dots, does it? Of course, I used my stitched dies to layer everything onto the card base. 

I'd like to enter this into the current challenge at Seize the Birthday, which is 'Anything Goes'. I'm also playing in Pixie's Snippets Playground - Week 203 as I've used several snippets of my precious pp.

Have a fabulous week. Enjoy!

Happy 5th Birthday

Hello. Another week has flown by! I have several birthdays coming up, so today's card is for a child turning 5. I have a great-niece turning 5 today and the Irish Princess's little brother will be 5 on Sunday. Another little one turns 3 on Saturday and those are just this week's birthdays.

This one was so fun to make. I used the WPlus9 Unforgettable set to stamp the elephant, party hat and round balloons onto Lawn Fawn Let's Polka paper snippets. I then fussy cut the stamped pieces. The #3 was die cut with Avery Elle Numbered Balloons from another snippet. 

I tried to blend some clouds onto a white stitched rectangle with Broken China distress ink. Not a very good attempt, I know. That panel was adhered to a white card base and all the pp pieces were added with foam. I added twine to each balloon and secured the balloons to the sweet ellie's tail. 

I will add this into Seize the Birthday where the current challenge is "Anything Goes". Also, I will play in Pixie's Snippets Playground Week #201. 

Have a fabulous Friday! Enjoy!
