Boy and His Dog 2

Wow, I can't believe that I have so many cards that I have not even posted yet. Here is another one. I think I made it for a challenge of some kind, but alas, ran out of time and didn't get it finished. This is a Mo Manning stamp that I fell in love with and had to have. Yes another one! I think I was going through a green and blue phase at the time as I seem to have a few cards with this same colour combination. I just realised that this is the first card that has NO buttons or ribbon.

Here is a closer view of the image.

With Sympathy

I made this card for a very good friend of mine, who recently suffered a loss in her family. I, again, found this design on the Internet and decided that I would case it.

Little Card Holder

So after starting my Christmas cards in July, I needed somewhere to keep them until Christmas. So I headed for the Internet again and came across this cute little magazine style card holder. The template and tutorial comes from Sunflower Stamping just look on the sidebar for Magazine Holder Tutorial.

So after finishing my holder, I have somewhere to keep my cards safe and unbent while I wait for December. Again I have used Delightful Decorations stamp set and Jolly Holly designer papers.

Sneak Peak Christmas

Okay, so how awesome is this new stamp set from Stampin Up. It is available for purchase in the NEW catalogue that starts 1st September 2011. I purchased this one, as I knew I would use it a lot. The Stamp set is called Tidings of Joy. I made a gate fold card with a difference for this card. The difference from the standard gate fold is the image and greeting are adhered to the opposite sides of the card. Not on the same side. I used my copics to colour the image and again I used the Jolly Holly designer papers to decorate the card. Really liked the way this one turned out. Very cute.

Here is a closer sample of the coloured image on the front of the card.

Christmas in July (Almost)

I have been searching the Internet for Christmas cards a little early this year. I have come up with a few that I really like and I have cased them. Most of these have come from the very talented Kimmie. Follow the link to go directly to her site. Stampin with Kimmie

Here is another card I have made for Christmas this year. This one is a Joy Fold Card and I have decorated it using Stampin Ups Jolly Holly Designer Paper.

This is my third card for Christmas in July. Its a little card with a gift holder. Fantastic idea, just wish I could claim it for my own. The instructions come from Kimmie as well.
Like I said earlier, very talented lady.
