Hey there, I had to rush to get a card made with the Tuesday Morning sketch designed by my crafty friend, Kathy. Isn't this a great sketch?  Love it! I used another Phindy image. my favorite site for digital images.
The paper is Crate Paper's Christmas line from last year.
I die cut the scalloped circle, punch a scalloped border, pierced around the rectangle and added some silver flat back pearls to coordinate with the silver trim on the ribbon. After trying the sentiment in a few colors on a scrap, I settled on heat embossing it with white embossing powder.
Well, friends, I still have alot more Christmas cards to make but I'll add this one to the pile!

Hi Friends, I have been saying this card post until I had a challenge to go with it and I found one this week. It's Glitter Geeks Challenge-Humor
I made a cute card with ol'Gus here from Bugaboo Stamps for my BIL. This one's a digital image that I colored up with my Copics.
I used K&Co paper from their birthday paper. I think it's called Confetti. This card is so cute in real life. I used MFT star dienamics to cut the stars. The sentiment stamp is Flourishes.
Hope you enjoy looking!

CCC#49,Phindy's,Papercraft Star

Hey Friends, Lots of color going on in this card! I used a cute Phindy's Place image for this, coloring it with Copics. I'm still learning how to use them but the colors are so vibrant that it makes it so fun to use.
I matched the marker colors to the patterned paper. I can't remember what company it is but I got it last year. It may be Crate Paper. The red PP is MME.

I used a sketch from Christmas Card Challenges Blog. You should check out their weekly challenges because it's time, people, to make those holiday cards!

I'm also submitting this card for this weeks Papercraft Star challenge to use a flourish or use the flourish inspiration photo for your card. I used my cuttlebug flourish embossing folder.

My most recent baby card won their top challenge last week.
