Christmas Box Cards 1

Good Morning,

I was very disappointed with myself last Christmas because I ran out of time to make everyone handmade Christmas Cards.  I have decided that Christmas 2018 will be different, I am determined to try to make Christmas Cards at least once a week!  

I made two of these cards, notice I got to use my glitzy paper again?

I promised my husband I would use up a lot of my stuff this year so I am making the envelopes out of some of the "lighter weight" Christmas Paper.

I am entering this box card into the following challenges:

Shopping Our Stash - #342 Home Sweet Home
The Holly and Ivy Christmas - Challenge #23 Anything Goes Christmas

Feel Better Male/Female Cards

Good Morning,

Today it is a bright and sunny 77 degrees here in Maryland but over the weekend, it was rainy and dreary out.  We had snow, sleet and rain, just the kind s of weather to hide in my craft room.

I decided to replenish my get-well cards, it seems that everyone is sick with something these days and it is always good to extra around.

I made four cards, two female and two male.

I made two sweet cards for a female.  The little owl flair is from the DLART Store.  I love owls!  The flowered paper is from MME "Hello Georgeous" the rest is from my stash.  I chalked the "Better" letters with Quick Quotes Powder Puff chalk to make them stand out.
The embossing is "Bubbles"

I just love the antique car paper!  I have a button punch so I made the button out of paper.  The embossing is "wood-grain."

International Art & Soul #27

Good Morning Friends,

I love International Art & Soul design team.  We are just a bunch of laid back women who love creating things.  There is no pressure, just fun.  Each of the design team sisters gets to choose a few of the themes for the year.  This is one of the themes that I came up with "Use Your Stuff."  I chose it because I have soooo much stuff!

I made this card for my sister for her birthday, she is a fantastic baker, she makes the most delicious cakes!  I saw this DWCV Stack called "Nana's Kitchen" and bought it thinking I would make something for two years ago....

I don't know if you can see it, but down on the bottom of the card is a "rub on" remember rub ons?  I think they came and went very quickly!

I have had the sentiment above for many years, finally found the right card to use it on.

I used two different stamped sentiments on the back.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

DLART February Linky Challenge - ATG
C.R.A.F.T challenge - Mother's Day/Female
Seize the Birthday - Coffee or Tea (tea pots on background paper)
