A Couple Of Last Minute Christmas Projects

Good Morning All....
I decided to make a few last minute projects as Christmas presents.  I made 2 sets of 4 note cards for my sister and sister n law.  They were super simple.  I bought pre made cards and envelopes and just added a mat and used the Botanicals Lite cartridge for the monogram.
The little card I made comes from Jolly Holiday Lite cartridge.  I'm going to use this card for a gift card.
Have a beautiful day everyone.

My Free Peachy Keen Stamp Card

Thanks Peachy Keen...
Remember over Thanksgiving weekend Peachy Keen had a sale and give aways.  They also included this stamp with my order so I made a card :o)  I love, love, love their stamps and they have the best customer service.  I bought some ultra fine Sharpie markers to color the really small places and used my Bic markers (I totally love my Bic markers) to color the rest.  I think she turned out pretty cute.  Let me know whatcha think of my card and if you can't tell...I really like this paper.  I used on my previous cards.  See you later.

New Year's Card Swap

Hi Everyone....
Today is like a blizzard outside.  I know it's nothing like Minnesota is getting.  It's pretty to look at when you don't have to go outside.  Hopefully school will call for a delay in the morning.  I don't like to drive a big school bus when it's zero degrees outside and we just had a big snow.
Anyways...I would like to share with you a card I made for my DT New Years card swap with Holy Cricut.  I'll be honest with you...I'm not all that inspired by New Years.  Its just another day to me.  Believe me...I'm not a bah hum-bug girl, I'm just not a celebrating, cheering, ball dropping person.  I go to sleep.
I got my inspiration from my friend Emma over at CreativeTimeForMe.  I just love her projects.  I didn't totally scraplift this...but she did help ;o).  Thanks my friend. it is.  I hope you like it.  Let me know what you think.
