Simple Note Card...

Happy February!
This weekend I created a simple, "For You"card. This would be nice to use to go along with a gift, or just to let someone know you were thinking of them.




I recently created a new card, using all Close to my Heart products, which is sometimes rare for me, once I love so many designers and products!

I used Eggplant colored cardstock from the Enchantment Cardstock Combo Pack for the card base.
With papers from the Little Dreamer Patterned Paper Pack (retired).

For the sentiment, I used the Happy Day Cardmaking Kit
I stamped the image in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink




The white & gold ribbon I used as an embellishment is also included in the Cardmaking Kit. 
The ribbon is also sold separately. 

This card was entered into a few challenges:
Pile It On! Challenge Blog- #139 3D Embellishments 
Polkadoodles-Anything Goes 
Crafty Gals Corner- #158 Anything Goes 
Classic Design Team-#22 Open Challenge

Countdown to Christmas!

It's one of my favorite Holidays of the year... and my favorite time of the year!
I love Christmas, always have.

We don't get much snow in the south, but still love snowmen too!
Snowmen always remind me of Christmas!
 About a week ago, we actually some some snow here in western Georgia, I was so excited!





I used the Snowman at the window image from Crafty Sentiments Designs for my main focal point:




On this card I used several layers of cardstock from Close to my Heart.



 The sentiment inside is from the Joyful Tidings Stamp set from the Workshop Your Way Kit from Close to my Heart as well.
 I used Pacifica Exclusive Ink to distress the edges of the sentiment piece inside.

A New Thank You Card

Hope you all have had an amazing weekend! 
I'm so excited that the temperature has dropped some here in Western Georgia. 
It's still warm, but certainly cool than it was a few weeks ago.


Here is the cute little thank you card I created this weekend. 




I used the "thanks" stamp from our Feel So Blessed set, from Close to my Heart! 
If you purchased this set for $5 during September, then you already have it! 
I used Sweet Leaf exclusive ink for the sentiment. 

I used a few rhinestone bitty sparkles, to jazz it up. 

Then there're three layers of patterned paper. 
All three layers are from the Cats and Bats paper pack from Close to my Heart. 
The cobwebs layer, the orange layer and the letters layer.

I submitted my card to a few challenges this week:
