Festive Friday!

Happy Festive Friday again! Wow we certainly do have a lot of Christmas cards done! Thanks again to Terri for this great idea.
Well if you came here from Maria's blog you are in the right place but if you just happened upon this hop please    go to Terri's blog and start at the beginning and see all the wonderful projects.

My card is done all with CTMH paper.. The patterned paper is a few years old but I am trying to use up some older paper. The angel was stamped with walnut stain distress ink then I added sparkly embossing powder to it.The angel just shimmers. I cut the joy with my cricut using a child's year alpha. I added stickles. The ribbon is also CTMH olive. The design is from an old mojo monday sketch. Thanks for coming to visit and hope you saw lots of cards you want to do for Christmas!
Mine is the last blog on the hop but you might want to hop back to the first which is Terri's blog!

Festive Friday!

It's Festive Friday again.. If you came here from Maria's Blog you are in the right place but if you have just happened upon my blog and would like to start at the first go to Terri's blog.
 I made a tent topper card. I am sorry for the picture but I think it's the lens of my camera cause I took about 20 pics of it and all are the same.
I just used scrap paper and CTMH gingham ribbon and a sizzix embossing die... I also used stickles which I love. The stamp is also CTMH.
Thanks for joining us on the hop and I am last this week but you can go back and visit Terri again if you like.

Link To Pink Her Craftiness!

Here is my project for Lynne's Link To Pink.... October is Breast Cancer Month.... I was going to post my Boob Card but I wanted to try something new....
I made an envelope card.  I used 3 5 1/2 by 5 1/2 envelopes and attached  them together with the flaps... 
I matted a very pale pink with deeper pink and then black.
I used different flower stamps (unity and tim holtz). All the stamps I used I got from Up The Street ( my LSS) in Strathroy Ontario.
The words were a saying I found on internet. 

The deep pink words were done on cricut. The rest I wrote myself. I need to work on my penmenship but it is getting somewhat better...
I used tim holtz victorian velvet and peeled paint distress ink...
I would like to finish it with tags for inside envelopes and pull out tabs.

I hope to do another project for this at the end of the month as the October Kit of the Month from Unity stamps have some great stamps for just this kind of project in mind...
Remember Gals.... as Sherry's card said yesterday.... Got Boobs? Get them checked!!!
Have a great Sunday!
