Bring a song to your heart

Since I mailed out around 100 Christmas cards, I figured I better get started on making my stash for the upcoming year.  So I had this image colored from Lili of the Valley - Christmas Robin and the sentiment is from TLC, Create.  I used both a Marvy and Liquid Applique for the snow on the branches.  The brown paper is embossed.  We are actually getting some snow right now.

You make my tail curl

Here is one more from Just Me that I think is just too cute.  When you stamp a pig they are adorable.  When you are driving in the country and smell pigs....that's another story.

Cheesiest Valentine card I could find

Since I am on the Bugaboo and TLC, Create DT the majority of the cards that I make have images from those makers.  So I pulled out some images that I had colored quite sometime ago, that are NOT from either of those, but from Just Me.  For this card, I dry embossed the background and rubbed it with sandpaper.

Love heart shaker card

I've had this heart colored for quite sometime, but finally but it together.  I decided to make it a shaker card.  The heart frame is from Just Me.  My daughter and her boyfriend celebrated their 5th Anniversary together so I am planning to send it to them.

Celebrate Fifty

On Friday, I had to take my best friend for a surgical procedure so it was a crazy day.  Yesterday it was in the 40s here after we had it so cold, so that the 7 inches of snow that we got last week melted.  Now today we are expecting to have freezing rain...we can't win with this weird weather.  So I have been in a strange mood...so I decided to make a birthday card for my -ex husband who is EXACTLY 6 months older than me.  He is paranoid about aging so it is a revenge since I can point out his age, hehe.  I am mean...and it isn't a full moon.  I think age is only a number and you are only as old as you feel.  As a nurse we would refer to people being "old" for their age or "young" for their age and I totally agree.
For my card, I used a sentiment from TLC, Create.  I put three snowflakes on it with some twine, and kept it simple.
