Still More Christmas Cards

The door with the wreath on it is a case of a neighbor, Stephanye Foster.  She makes amazing cards and I really liked this one.  The second card uses some stickers (the tree and reindeer) that I had forgotten I had.  That's it for now! 

Until next time, happy trails to you!

More Christmas Cards

I am back this morning with some more Christmas cards I made this year. The snowman is a new stamp I got this year.  It is from Stampendous.  I never buy wood stamps anymore but this guy was so cute, I just could not resist.   The Nativity is a set from Paper Smooches and it is Pinterest inspired.  The third card is blog inspired.  I am guessing from Jennifer McGuire but not positive.  I used trees from a Paper Trey Ink set and then cut the words out and placed them back in.  That's all for today! 

Until next time, happy trails to you...

Christmas Cards Part 1

Usually I make my cards all alike except for a very few.  This year there were so many great ideas out there I made them all different.  I thought it would be fun to post some of the ones I have made so I think I will do this from now until Christmas.  Hopefully I will remember to do more!  I have seen variations of these cards either on blogs or on Pinterest and would love to give credit but now have no idea who to give credit to!  Sorry but know I loved your cards!

Until next time, happy trails to you...

Oh Deer!

Today I was looking at some blogs and saw a card similar to this one.  All I know is that Jenny made it.  I am sorry I don't know Jenny's last name.  I believe she used all Memory Box dies and mine are all Impression Obsession.  I used distress inks for the background - sky, water and yellow glow.  I had fun making this one!  My cards are already out for this year so I guess it will be the beginning of next years cards!   

Until next time, happy trails to you...

Oh Christmas Tree...

It doesn't seem possible that the turkey has been put away and Christmas is approaching quickly.  I am  making cards to send for my personal use and also for the Caring Hearts Card Drive.  Are you all ready for the holidays?  I think I am about finished with the shopping and didn't have to leave my house on Black Friday.  No way to I get into those crowds!  How  many of you go out in the middle of the night for the deals on Black Friday?

 Our Thanksgiving Day was chilly but today was in the 50's and they are saying tomorrow may be 60!  I will take those temperatures all day long!  Lucy and I got to walk without freezing today. 

Until next time, Happy trails to you!...

My Copic markers were sitting in their bag and when I walked into my craft room I thought I heard crying.  I checked in the bag and there they were, crying and asking why they aren't being used.  They sure weren't feeling the love.  I had not been using them too much lately.   So I promised them that I would let them out and get some fresh air the next day.  I held true to that promise and colored up this sweetie which was a stamp off from a friend.  I then thought that I had not used my Frantage embossing powder in a long way so I dug that out as well.  I am happy with how the card turned out.  I don't think you can see it but the paper has an ombre look to it. 

Our weather is certainly wintery now.  We have had snow twice now.  And it has been windy and bitterly cold.  Ok, now I am ready for spring!  Enough of this! But it is nice to snuggle up under a big blanket and read a good book. 

Until next time, happy trails to you...

Thanksgiving is Coming

Ok, this is really not a Thanksgiving card but I thought this may be a good time to post it.  Actually I made it last winter!   I colored her with my Copics and then fussy cut her out.  I then mounted her on cream cardstock and then on a piece of black cardstock with cream behind that.  I used gold embossing powder to heat set the words.   

Until next time, happy trails to you!!!
