Spring / Easter greeting cards

I was playing with my new stamps from Michael's $1.00 bin. I had fun adding the liquid applique to the lambs body and the bunnies tail it is so neat to watch it transform from a liquid to a puffy surface in a matter of seconds from the heat of the embossing tool.

New Layouts for this week

Sometimes it is difficult to come up with titles and journaling. Here are examples of both to perhaps make it easier. You can cut out the title from excess photos of the event as in MORE MAMMOTH, or you can incorporate the image into the title as in ADORABLE, or ... Also taking pictures of grave stones or historical markers and adding them to your layouts are sometimes all that is needed to describe the pictures taken.

Christmas Card Challenge (CC09 Feb.)

Christmas Card Challenge (CC09 Feb)

These are the Christmas Cards and gift tags I created to complete the challenge for the month of February.
I'm so glad this challenge was created, by doing just six cards and six gift tags a month I'll be all set for Christmas.
This is just a simple card with added bling by using glitter paper, stamped images and embossing. The inside sentiment reads "For unto us was born a child"
