Birthday card for Kim

Here is a birthday card I made for my card swap buddy.
Happy Birthday Kim!

I used a Stampendous birthday fairy cling stamp.  Then I emboss the whole image with a holographic embossing powder.  It is hard to see from this picture.  A neat technique I learned when I took the online class Christmas Cards and Tips to Use all Year Long by Dena Concienne.  That was really a great class.  Glad I took it.  I used 6x6 paper from Authentique Essentials Collection.  I only have two 6x6 paper pads of Authentique.  This one and Christmas one I got as a gift from Millie for Christmas.  I really like their paper and will have to pick up some more.  The flowers came from Wild Orchid Crafts.  The lace and charms I picked up on my scrappy travels and don't really remember where I got them.
Hope you have a great birthday Kim!

Merry Christmas!

I wish you all a very Merry Christmas!
Here is a couple Christmas cards I made.
 I made this card using my Silhouette Portrait.  I bought the design in the Silhouette store.  It is a Snap Dragon Snippets design.
 I also made this one with my Silhouette Portrait.  I bought this design at SVG  It is called Winter Wishes.  They had a couple other cards you could make with the svg package.
I made this vintage card for my sister.  I thought she would like the little girl on this graphic.  She reminded me of her granddaughter.
Merry Christmas!
Happy New Year!
and as always
Happy Crafting!

Last of the swap cards for Dec.

Here are Millie's swap cards.
 Such a cute card.  I like how she did the background like the piece of swiss cheese on the stamp.

 Love the color of this card.  The sentiment is very inspiring.

These little purple flowers are so pretty.  Such a beautiful card.
Thanks Millie for the cards.
Happy Crafting!

December swap cards

Before I get to the December swap cards I sent the ladies I would like to show the b-day card Millie made me.

Such a cute card!  Thanks Millie!
 This card I made from my Cricut.  The cut is from the Christmas cards cart.

This card was Millie's idea.  She was at my house and we were looking at paper and she came up with this idea for the paper.  I am ready for any ideas so I took it and ran.
I also added a Christmas card for each of them but didn't get a photo of them before I sent them.  Just a busy time of the year....:-)
Happy Crafting!

December card swap

Christmas month is here!  It is my b-day this month.  Kim sent me a b-day card and a Christmas card.  I will show that first and then the cards Kim sent me for this month's swap.
 This is the Christmas card Kim sent me.  Another cool folded card.  Very pretty and cheery.
Here is the b-day card Kim sent me.  Very pretty & delicate!
Thanks Kim!
Now onto the December swap cards from Kim.
 I just love the tree stamped on this card.  I also like the font on the sentiment a lot.  I like color too.  Beautiful card!

 This card is so cute.  I love the leaf with the dragonfly on it.  So stinkin cute!!
 You can't see in this picture but she also embossed the black cardstock on the card.  Nice card Kim. 
Pretty card Kim.  I love how you outlined the clouds with silver.  The coloring on this is really good.  I like the different colored background. 
Thanks for all the beautiful cards Kim!
Happy Crafting!
