Cards I have sent out and sent to others

Love this snowman..and love the red glitter scarf.....and the falling snow folder....
This Christmas set is available as the bundle in the occasion mini......just use punch and DSP...makes a great card...

 This wreath makes a cute quick card....


I played with this for awhile and was really satisfied with the results...did the sky in night of navy and the smoky slate for the middle layer and basic gray for the bottom so the sleigh would pop....glued them on a piece of night of navy and trimmed.......and added the peace in two different way....I didn't but the dazzling diamonds glitter paper would really be nice.....make it a WOW...lol

Birthday card for friend

This is a case of one of my class card...love the paper and flower so much...I used it in a birthday card....this foil looking paper is wonderful....and so glad the punch is still available in the Occasion mini coming up...used the fun fold technique for card base...the front hide the saying...
 and then the stamp from the occasion mini fit behind the birthday wishes from Wetlands...and the rectangle piece from Chalktalk framelits....
 used the black glitter  paper for 2 " circle and for the 1 3/4 circle used a stamp from the Occasion mini...the middle of the flower is black glitter paper....and that is a rhinestone...not red as shown....my concrete on the porch is a reddish...think that is where is was picked up...lol
