A Snowman Holliday Card

I had a friend ask me if I could make him a card to send to his sister for Christmas. He asked if I could make it with a snowman and some snowflakes. I was happy to help... I love Christmas and this got me thinking ahead and I love anything with snowflakes!!!
Here is the card that I came up with for him:  

The paper is from recollections, embossed with the snowflakes Cuttlebug Embossing Folder. Studio G glitter is on the snow
The snowman is from the Doodlecharms Cricut cartridge.
The sentiment is a Scrappy Moms Stamp from the Winter Wishes stamp set

A Boo Card!!

I love sending my niece and nephew happy mail.  I know they love getting mail and Halloween being just around the corner I made this card to send to them. I hope they like it :)

The paper is Recollections. Distressed with the Tim Holtz Distressing tool, the faux stitching is with a glitter green Gelly Roller pen. 
The Stamped images are from a Recollections stamp set – Halloween. The stamped sentiment is made with the Martha Stewart  Flourished Monograms stamp set.
The ghost is from Simply Charmed

Getting Ready For Halloween!!!

This year I have been thinking a lot about Halloween.  We have bought our boy’s their costumes what seems like ages ago which has left me with time to think about all the other things I would like to do!
I decided that I would make cards for the kids in my life...my niece, nephew and friends kids, even some of my friends who live out of town!!
I started the cards a few weeks ago but finished them us on Sunday.  I don’t have a lot of Halloween craft supplies but I do have some Cricut cartridges with Halloween images and a Recollections stamp set. I did buy a glittery green Gelly roll pen :)
On Sunday we had dinner with friends so I did not need to cook or clean up supper, my boys were in bed early, but I was exhausted and head achy :(                            I just had the need to craft but probably should have stopped long before I did, it was one of those nights where I was having a hard time deciding on anything ...lol As it turned out all of my cards look very similar...lol That was not my intent (or it would not have been a much faster craft session..lol)
So Here are the cards I came up with: 

The Recipe:
The paper is from Recollections and Prima- Sasha Paper Collection
Glitter green and white Gelly roll pen for the faux stitching
Stamped images are from a Recollections stamp set – Halloween
Cricut cartridges: Doodlecharms, Paper Dolls Dress Up, Winter Woodlands

Martha Stewart glitter – Black Onyx
Martha Stewart Stamp Flourished Monograms for the Boo sentiment

I hope you have a wonder full day.
