WHOA!! Am I a slacker or what...either I haven't been making cards, or I haven't been posting... Okay so the truth is..I haven't been posting. You don't need to hear excuses so let's just look at my newest Christmas card.
I made this card because...as I've said previously, I like the little people on the paper. I also love the green paper! Gotta love the green, brown and pink combo! I did end up making more of this card because I liked it so much, but with a couple changes...different ribbon and flowers...which I will post once I have taken pictures of them.
I can't believe it's almost Christmas. I'm so not ready. I have ideas but no firm purchases made. And I am just now starting to notice the Christmas music being played on the radio and in stores... Then comes the snow. AWWW man! I'm not a big fan of the cold flakey stuff...it's pretty...but not fun to drive in.
Anyways, I better end my rant on snow now before I get too carried away.
Have a lovely day!

Okay so I was looking over my blog today...and I noticed that most of my cards have been pink. That's alotta pink! Don't get me wrong, I like pink, but it's definitely not my favorite color.
So today's card pic is not pink at all. I made this card for my friend Marijka's birthday that was a week ago. I waited to post it as not for her to see it before I gave it to her.
I used brown shimmer paper, polka dot double sided paper and some other light blue/brown patterned paper that I bought from a semi-local scrapbook store. The ribbon I bought from the same store, by the yard. I used Stickles for the 'i's' and a mini alphabet stamp for the 'Birthday Wishes'. The brad I believe is a Making Memories jewel brad, but I can only find the one...not good!
Hope you like it! Let me know what you think!!
