Dragonfly Journeys Challenge #82

Dragonfly Journeys Challenge #82 is The Year of the Rooster.  I did not even realize that I had a  Close to My Heart Rooster stamp.  It is an older stamp that I have never used!  I made a very simple Birthday Card with a small bow made from twine.  Stamped in Black on Kraft Cardstock.

More Christmas Cards

I finally had time this weekend to finish my Christmas Cards.  This is the latest I have ever mailed out my cards!  I have been dividing up my time between Crocheting and Card making this year.

Here are some of my cards I worked on this weekend:

PML Christmas Cards

I made quite a few of my Christmas Cards this year with Close to My Hearts Picture My Life Cards.  It makes card making so quick and easy.  You can add your own stamps and embellishments to the cards or use them just as they are.  Here are some of them that I made:

Atlantic Hearts Sketch #189

Another Atlantic Hearts Sketch to help me with my Christmas Cards... This week I used the Close to My Heart "Oh Deer" Paper Pack with Stamp Set #C1656 Joy to You and Me and D1694 Very Merry Holiday.  The card sparkles from the Gold Shimmer Trim and the Heat Embossing which is also Gold.  A little bit of Gold Stickles and a couple of "Oh Deer" Complements to finish it off.

Christmas Critters

My daughter has this thing for penguins, so every year I make her a Christmas Card with penguins on it.  This is a shaker card made mostly with Close to My Heart products.  I used a retired stamp set (B1483) Seasons Greetings, City Sidewalks Paper and CTMH Ribbon.  The Crystal Snow is the only non CTMH product.

I am entering this card in Dragonfly Journeys Challenge #80.

Welcome to the Three Amigos December 2016 Close to My Heart Mini-Blog Hop. We are three Close to My Heart Consultants with a love for Stamping and Scrapping and would like to share our creative ideas with you. On the 3rd day of each month we will feature a different CTMH product or challenge and create a card, layout or other project. There are only 3 stops on this hop so it will only take a few minutes to hop through. 

 This month our Challenge is to use 3 Embellishments.  I made a Christmas Card using the following Close to My Heart products:

Cranberry, Sapphire and White
Stamp Sets: 
D1694 Very Merry Holiday, A1191 Perfectly Pine, B1116 The Beauty of Christmas (Retired)
Sapphire, Chocolate and Cranberry
Red Enamel Gems, Bakers Twine, Glitter Gel

Now hop on over to Susan's Blog and Lisa's Blog to see what they have created this month!
