I am entering this card in the Cricut Cardz challenge for a Halloween S-fold card. I used all cuts from Happy Hauntings and paper is Stampin Up.

My Christmas Card finalized

I am in love with my Christmas card. So happy with the way it came out. This stamp set was a hostess item in last years Stampin Up fall/holiday mini. I was so mad I couldn't get it but my demo recently sold it at her open house and I grabbed it up. The set is called Snow Buddies. The trees in the background are the tree from the Stampin Up Loads of Love set. In case you can't tell its a shaker card. I used foam tape on acetate and filled it with Diamond Dust. I cut the snow globe with the Cricut from the Doodlecharms cartridge. The designer paper is from a pack I bought at the Rhinebeck stamp show from the vendor Art Gone Wild I used stickles and my new favorite product White Perfect Puff (also purchased at the show from the Artful Stamper  to make snow on the trees. Hope you like.
This LO of my boys flying kites on Mayo Beach in CC last year. The paper is Stampin Up and the fish bordering the bottom is a Stampin Up wheel. The kite was made for me by Paper Piecing by Design.

Just Beachy

The stamps used were from Stampin Up Just Beachy set. I used the fish, woody wagon and flip flops. The designer paper is Bo Bunny. The sun was cut out of a piece of Bo Bunny Paper.

Fun with Paint

I really wish this photo came out better because this LO is so nice in person. I'd be happy to take some tips on photographing your LO to get in those details. Along the yellow strip bordering the photos on the left side I set eyelets and tied different colored fibers for texture and color. The title says You Color My World and was cut from a piece of Vellum Paper. The paint jar and brush are from My Community. The papers are from a stack by DCWV.

Cape Cod Railway

I love this LO from our trip to Cape Cod last year. I made the and RR crossing sign from My Community and the fonts are Cursive 101 and Plantin Schoolbook.

Boo Banner

This banner is completely scraplifted from Mrs. B's craft room. She did such a great job and her tutorial was excellent. Since I don't have a gypsy all my cutouts were done individually from the Happy Hauntings Cartridge. The paper is from Stamping Up. I loved working with the Marta Stewart black glitter it gave it such a nice effect. Now I am really tempted to go back to Michaels and get her glow in the dark glitter.

Bath Time

I gotta learn to take better pictures. Anyway here's the layout I started weeks ago/ What took the most time was the hand stitching (that you really can't see in this photo). I love the effect but boy was it time consuming. The titele is hand stitched too. The boys, tub and bubbles are from Everyday Paper Dolls and the duch is from the New Arrival cartridge. Paper is some old stuff I had hanging around.

Still haven't finished the LO I started weeks ago but I did make a Christmas card prototype today. My DH's photo taking skills are better than mine but still lacking. Overall I like the card but it will have to be one of several designs I make. No way I'm doing 50 of these.
