Christmas Cards

Hello Friends!

How are you? Are you finished with your Christmas shopping?  Me?  Not even close and Christmas is around the corner. Yikes!

Anyways, I'm stopping by to share some super simple Christmas cards that I made recently.  And I do mean simple, which made mass production a breeze.

I used a large stamp that includes all these Christmas sentiments and embossed them in metallic silver powder.  Then I added a few sequins as a final touch and called it done! :) 

I love how the embossing reflects the light but made it a bit tricky to photograph.

The card on the left wasn't embossed.  I just used white ink, which I liked as well (but lacked the pizzazz).

(Supplies: cardstock; stamp- Stampendous; versa mark ink; metallic silver embossing powder- Zing; embellishments; hot gun; glossy accents)

I also used a blue background with the silver embossing.  However, those cards were mailed off before I could photograph them. :)

I'll be linking this to Muse: Christmas Visions (Challenge 90- Festive "free for all") 

Thank you for stopping by and I wish you all a joyous holiday.

Health & Happy Crafting,

Introducing the New Family Members

Hello Friends!

Boy, these past couple years have been a struggle to post content.  But then again, rebuilding my health has been my top priority.  

Anyhow, in the summer I mentioned that I was going to be an aunt again, and a sweet reader, Lisa, suggested I post pictures of my new niece.  A few months late, but here she is: Aeylahni (pronounced Ay-la-nee)!

She arrived ready for braids! :) 

However, I also need to mention my other adorable niece who is 9 months older than Aeylahni.  Introducing, Amani!!

This little one entered the world ready to run!  

I just LOVE & adore these babies.  Our family is truly blessed with these precious cuties.  

Thank you for stopping by.

Health & Happy Crafting,
