Well, Izzy was back to her usual grumpy self for a Monday. She got to spend a lot of time with Jason this weekend so that is why. She really misses her Daddy. It is funny, when she was younger, all she wanted was me and as she gets older all she wants is her daddy!! What a Daddy's girl!!
This is her dancing!!!
I love this paper from SEI! It has such a rich quality too it! The paper actually glistens!! Okay, so I started this card by stamping Milly On Present by Spiral Whisper on white card stock and a piece of DP. I colored Milly and the ribbon in with my copics and markers and then paper pieced the present together. Using the sketch as a guide, I layered green card stock, red card stock and several kinds of Christmas DP. I decided to tie a ribbon in the corner to mimic the present! I am not sure who I will give this one to for Christmas, maybe I will sit on it and keep it for myself!! lol!
My second card for today, is a cute, whimsical kind of card. I have really been admiring the gorgeous snowflakes on everybody's cards lately and when I saw these glitter ones at Michaels yesterday, I knew I had to have them. I decided to use Mary Jo's aka Technostamper's Monday's Lunchtime Sketch Challenge for the layout. I have to admit though, I really took liberties with this sketch, because I so wanted to use this stamp. First I flipped the sketch on its side, changed the rectangle into snowflakes and moved them over to the side. Hope this still counts!!
I started this card off by stamping Mimi and Snowman by Pink Gem Designs on white card stock and colored them in with my markers and copics. I then scalloped the edge with my decorative scissors and mounted it on a piece of decorative DP and red card stock. Following the sketch, I layered red card stock, and Christmas DP. I added three glitter snowflakes in the corner, popping them off with dimensionals. To finish the card, I added a piece of red ribbon around the middle!
Well, I am off!! I want to spend a little quiet time with my hubby before the crazyness that is Christmas gets into full swing! Have a great evening and as always, thanks for stopping by!
