My First Time...

This was my first time ever entering a sketch challenge. This one came from Mojo Monday. I'm not sure if I made the deadline, but I'm very proud of this card none the less. I love the cute miniature Santa image. I'm also especially proud of the holly I made. You'd be surprised what scraps can do. Thanks Mojo Monday for the inspiration.

Happy Birthday, Baby.

My birthday was yesterday, and my husband tells me he couldn't find a card he liked to get me. Being that I've been very crafty lately, he decided he wanted to try his hand at it, and make me a card. This is what he made, his first time crafting ever! I'm a HUGE halloween buff, so this fit right in. I love this card, and love the fact that he thought to do something personal like this for me.

To Hawaii with love

My girlfriend needed a thank you card for her Godmother, so she asked me to make her one. Her Godmother lives in Hawaii, and loves gardening. She's Australian, and her husband is Japanese and loves to fish, so these cute Ian and Anya stamps had to be put to use! This took me a while to figure out, being that I had the most trouble picking my background paper. My girlfriend who needed the card ended up picking out that piece, so everything else fell into place. I love it, these characters are so cute. I hope the person it was intended for loves it too.
