Spring Birthday

My inspiration today comes from Peggy's gorgeous gallery at Splitcoaststampers. I'm always in need of Birthday cards so I use the challenges at SCS. The flowers are stamped and heat embossed in white and fussy cut. I used a "Clementine" stamp by the Artful Stamper. The frame is die cut with QuiKutz nesting dies and the center is a Taylored Expressions Quatrefoil die cut to fit inside.

Christmas Thank You

For the last Ways To Use It Challenge for 2013 over at Splitcoaststampers the hostess asked us to dig that beautiful wrapping paper out of the trash, and use some of it on our card or project! I did just that. It's amazing how terrific some -not so spectacular- 
wrapping paper can look in smaller doses.
The first two were made with fragile wrapping paper. 
The last two were made with the tags that came with the gifts. 
Each card is going to the giver of each wrapped or tagged gift.

Used memory box bow die for the Spellbinders classic small rectangles

The raffia was a part of the jar of homemade eggnog with the kraft tag and branch
All were repurposed for the Thank You note.

The cute snowman was a tag on the matching bag.

A Sailor's Christmas

The Mojo Monday sketch #323 was perfect for a Christmas card for sailing friends. I used the bow and sentiment from Verve's "O Christmas Tree" set. The designer paper is from echo park "Dots & Stripes". I cut the dp and paper pieced to match the design of the sketch. 
I still have a few Christmas cards to complete for this year and hope to mail them before the New Year!

HOLLY - tini

I wandered over to CAS(E) this Sketch and was fascinated by this week's sketch. I love the shape of Martini glasses and chose to go with it because that's what I see in the sketch. I used a sizzlits die and cut the top and base to include the sentiment. My bubbles are not sparkling as they should but I'm sure you get the drift.
