Lucy's First Challenge

Hey Everybody! I made this card for Lucy's first card challenge DAYS ago but with the hustle and bustle of the holidays arriving (and crazy kiddos), I'm just getting aroung to posting it. Oh how I love the holidays! Seriously, they are my favorite! Just got the tree up tonight (no wasting time around here!) and lights on the house will go up tomorrow! Yippee!

K, so back to my card...Lucy's challenge was to use aqua, pink and kraft.

I used one of my favorite Hero Arts owl images. Since the stamped image shows the owl with closed eyes, I added goggly eyes to wake him up!

Hope you had a great Thanksgiving!

Its A Surprise

Hi Everyone! I've been super busy this past week with new projects that aren't quite ready to share yet. I finally decided to dive in and start scrapbooking my kiddos. I have 27 months to catch up on and thousands of photos! Scary....and fun!

Today I have a card to share that is for a friend. Its a surprise and I haven't put it in the mail yet. :) He! I hope she likes it.

Oh, check out that birdie. Recognize him? Scroll down to a few posts and you might see him with a winter hat on. :) I also did some hand stitching on this card. It took me a few tries to figure out a technique that I liked. I ended up punching the holes with my sewing machine and then going back with sewing floss by hand. I like the "chunky" look.

Have a great day!

Stamps: Hero Arts Lots of Merry, Flourish Design Block, Happy Hello
