Stop by and check out these holidays as I am sure you are going to want to remember these holidays and include them in your card making projects!!!!!

I designed this little girl all dressed for the snow and cold right down to her earmuffs. The inside of the card reads: "for warm wishes"



This clock was pre colored and came from one of the most awesome sites I've found lately called Paper Printables. I dry embossed the blue card stock using one of the Tim Holz embossing folders and then I heat embossed over that with gold. I love the retro look of this card. I used some Stickles for the clock face plus a black crystal from Miriam's Crafting Supplies.


Well this turned into an interesting venture...I went on line to get ideas of what I could do with bacon and I found all these weird bacon tasting or smelling or looking things you can actually buy so I had to download the pictures because it was just too funny and instead of a card or layout, I made a digital poster of what I found. Look closely because you may miss something interesting or just plain weird.


And the ultimate Bacon...

Kevin Bacon


I made this card using printable champagne digital paper I found at Printable Paper. I added some of my Glistening Snow Writer to give the appearance of bubbles coming out of the champagne bottle. I heat embossed the Happy New Year in gold and I made the flower by using a stencil for the Cuddlebug and then quilling. I added a green crystal from Miriam's Crafting Supplies.
