Holiday Snowman Card




I caught the cold bug that's been going around so not much energy today.  Decided to work on a card and postpone painting the dining room until I feel a bit better. This sweet snowman is one of my favorites by Bugaboo stamps.  Colored him with lots of patterns in PSE.  Cut out with Nestabilities dies.  Also used Studio G glitter glue for the snow, snowflake buttons, a yellow button, white twine, yellow ric rak and paper by Doodlebug Designs.

Tropical Santa


I made this card for a friend in Florida.  I love this fun Santa digi image from Bugaboo Stamps.  It's called Tropical Santa Drink. Colored him with Copic markers.  Cut out the saying, image and red background layer with Nestabilities dies.  Cut out the shell and starfish with my Cameo using a cut file from the Silhouette store and a scrap of tan cardstock.  Designer paper is Christmas/Noel from Recollections at Michaels.
