Happy New Year!

After I made my first card I thought how fun it would be to add a chandelier above the silhouette image...And when I saw the challenge over at
Moxie Fab World "Trigger Tuesday to use Black and White With The Possibility of Green" I knew just what colors to use! I thought the Black and Green color combo was really fab to bring in the New Year! Bling and a tiny black satin bow was added to the chandelier for fun...Thanks for stopping by! Have A Wonderful Moxie Fab Year!

Happy New Year!

Now that Christmas has come and gone its time to get ready for a New Year! And its almost here...I hope you all had a Wonderful Christmas and you were able to be with the ones you love...I wanted to share this CAS (Clean and Simple) style card I just made using this fun Party Silhouette by A Muse I thought it would be fun to put a clock with it that put the emphasis of midnight on it so I found an image on google and resized it,used my circle punch, then added a small black brad to the center for fun...To give it some pattern without taking too much away from the image I found this gingham ribbon to finish it off...Sorry this didnt photograph the best since theres a bit of overcast here in the Sunshine State...Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a Blessed New Year!! Hugs, Cookie...

Wish Upon A Christmas Star...

This is an oldie but goodie card I made using the A Muse Bear which I thought made a cute Christmas card...And it fits the challenge over at Moxie Fab World to use a critter! On the image theres a scarf and I decided to cut part of it off and tied some red ribbon around his neck, then I added star bling in the sky and placed the cut out bear on torn paper which mimics snow...Thanks so much for stopping by!
Have A Wonderful Week! Merry Christmas!! Hugs...Cookie

Be Merry!

More chipboard! I can't help it...Its so easy and I get instant gratification...something thats nice this close to Christmas... All I did here was add the pink and red paper onto the card base then popped up the chipboard and add the snowflake and some bling, ribbon and thats it! I wish you could see it in the photo, the red on the chipboard is shiny....Now to go with the whole Merry theme I thought I would upload one of my favorite Christmas songs sung only how James Taylor could sing it..."Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas"...He has such a nice voice...Have a Wonderful Day....And Be Merry!!

Chipboard Happy!

Ok I admit it...I am chipboard happy! I found some adorable chipboard pieces at Michaels and couldnt resist...I just wish I could get several of one type so I can make more cards of one kind for the holidays...They are so fast and easy, I feel a bit guilty I didnt spend enough time on them, but love the way the chipboard looks...Theres a challenge going on over at SCS to make a Clean and Simple card using curves, so I used my curvy chipboard for this card...Some bling was added to the chipboard for fun and I found some ribbon that tied in with the design (no pun intended). I just got done watching White Christmas its a tradition...I still get teary eyes when the General walks in the room filled with soldiers at the Inn...Gets me everytime...Heres one of my favorite songs from the movie and I can vouch that it really does work to count your blessings instead of sheep to help you go to sleep...Not sure why but when I tried it and started thinking of the little things I take for granted like a bed, clothes, hot water what I consider blessings I started to nod off...pretty neat...Have a wonderful week! Thanks for stopping by! Hugs...Cookie

Hope everyone is having a wonderful time getting ready for the holidays...I usually leave my posts up for a few days if I can but I have alot of Christmas cards to share with you...I have been using chipboard on my cards alot lately, its so fun to spell out something and then incorporate things to the card to go with the word...On this card I used some snowman paper in the DCWV stack and the MS Snowflake punch and torn paper for snow...I know you may be sick of this layout but its my favorite one so I tend to do it alot! Thanks so much for stopping by! Cookie

Christmas Carols...

Julia over at SCS was so sweet to use an idea I came up with for the Ways To Use It Challenge today....There are so many great Christmas songs out there that I thought it would be fun to be inspired by them and create some cards this card is based on the song "Baby Its Cold Outside"...I am loving my flower soft and added it to the outfit she is wearing...This is the Pink Cat Studio image I used on my previous card but this one has the Traditional Christmas colors...If you get a chance join in on the challenge! Have a Great Day! Thanks Julia!

Since it doesnt snow here in Florida I thought I would bring the snow to my blog, can you see the small snow flurries floating on my card?
My post for today is from the Christmas cards I have been working on... I think this card turned out to be my favorite so far...I wish I could make 40 of them for my Christmas cards but it would end up costing alot since the chipboard letters pack are dollar each and I try to keep the cost down on mass producing...It was so fun and easy to make...Are you getting ready for Christmas? I just put the lights outside last night, I am getting a head start on that part...We will do the tree sometime next week...How is yours coming along so far? Have a Wonderful Week! Thanks for stopping by! Hugs...Cookie
