Christmas challenge card for May-June

I cannot believe how fast this past week had gone by!  DH was out of town for the week and I planned to play in my room a lot while he was away.  I even went and had over 200 photos printed.  Oh such big dreams I had last Friday when he left.  Well, this is the sum total of my scrapping and it was done today....after he came home.  lol

 I made this for a Christmas card challenge group I am in.  The cute image is from LOTV stamps.  I just love these stamps.  There is a whole set of Nativity kids.  The main sentiment is from the Snowman nativity set from TAC.  The little banner stamp is my newest set of stamps and it is from Whimsy.  The patterned papers are from my scrap box.  I had to dig deep to find that charm.  Not sure where it came from or for home many years I have had it hidden.  lol  I used nesties for the circles.  Thanks so much for stopping by.  God bless each and every one.

Graduation cards

My dad asked me to make him a couple graduation cards.  I have had these Mag stamps forever but never used them so was quite excited......first to think he wanted me to make him some cards and second to finally use these darling stamps.  I did add a mouth to them because he had stated before he wasn't fond of the "stamps with out faces".  lol  I colored them with copics with a few pencil highlights and popped them up for more dimension.  I used the school colors for each. The paper with diplomas all over it was found buried deep in a pile I have not even looked at in over 2 years!  You wouldn't believe the awesome papers I came across.  I couldn't believe how much nicer the older papers are.....heavy and so easy to work with.  I added the girl's name but just put the boys initials since his name was a bit long.  I also made them step cards as that style seemed to work with my simple plans.  The letters are die cuts from a sizzlet set.  A little stickles and ribbon and I called them done.  lol

Thanks so much for stopping by.  With dh away for the week, I am hoping to get more scrapping done!  God bless you all.

Birthday card

This is the birthday card I made for one of my sisters.  She wanted a step card so she could have a pattern.  I made it fairly plain so it would be easier for her to measure the cuts and fold and all.  I used this cute little Bildy stamp that I have had forever but used very little.  The pps are scraps from other projects.  The sentiment stamp is new!!!  I love new stamps!!! lol  I added blingz to the flowers and stickles to the leaves.  I hope she likes it and can cope the pattern.  Hugs to all that stop by and prayers for God to always bless!
