to a deer friend...

Hello!

Saturday....Yesterday was a big day in the household...my girl now has braces....she's been a trooper and not complaining too much...

I've been enjoying making Card Tags...a mega tag:)
 

**sigh**  I have so much Christmas paper....I'm hoping to make a huge dent in my stash within the next couple of weeks...Gotta love Basic Grey's Jovial....Added some lace and an A Muse sentiment...

I was inspired by Kazan's Sketch 67:


Check it out....a non-holiday card!  I'm getting together with a bunch of gals tomorrow and I made this for the hostess with the mostess...I have to say it was one of my more labor intensive cards and no stitching?!   There is a ton of Copic coloring...


The music note paper, green polka dots and yellow paper are all Dear Lizzie, the blue base is PTI Hawaiian Shores, the polka dots are CHF and the Cuckoo Clock is of course, Hero Arts...my friend is a HUGE blue fan & collects whimsical cuckoo clocks....this card just screams her name....

Here's my Echo Park Paper Self-Challenge Card #4:


It's a truly clean and simple card...the die cut and green strip are from the Echo Park Merry Christmas line {the winter wonderland is on glue dots}....I topped off the card with some fun zig zags..

I'm slightly behind on my December Daily BUT I'm not going to stress about it...next year I might try doing Tim's Tags...


Day 2:  Starbucks 'tis the season'....I love Starbucks during Christmas...I'm such a Starbucks-a-holic and love all their giftie items....When I took the pic of the coffee bags I heard the boy call me a tourist and walk away....grrr....All the paper/embellies are from the Making Memories Noel line...did you see that I was able to sneak in a fun coffee cup from one of my many thickers sets?  I may tweek this layout later and add a starbucks coffee sleeve...

Tomorrow is 365 Cards Super Sketchy Sunday...a FUN Sponsor and an announcement...
