Its a Magical Season Christmas Card

Hello Crafty friends:) Hope everyone had a great weekend. I have a sweet little Christmas card to share with you all today.

Isn't she adorable?!:)

The penguin came from Peachy Keen's  PK-174 Skatin' by stamp set. I used one of the bows on the PKSC-23 November 2013 stamp set to place it on the penguins hair:)

I used a few of My Creative Time's stamps to make my card. Just Simply Live stamp set for the frame, From our  Family to Yours stamp set, Its a magical Season stamp set, and  Stitched Square Speech Bubbles Dies. I totally love all of Emma's My Creative Time stamps and dies, they are so easy to use and coordinate so well with each other:)

I colored the penguin with my Spectrum Nior markers, BT4, GB5, BGR3, CR4, BT5. I added some blue and white sequence to my card to represent snow :)lol. The paper is from my stash, Its from DCWV, sorry I don't remember the name.

Boyfriend Christmas Card

Hello fellow crafters! Hope you are all doing good and keeping warm on these cold winter days. I have a Christmas card to share with you guys today.

Isn't it cute! It was simple to make but I loved how it turned out. The image is from KennyK's  and its called "Mistletoe Digital Stamp." I colored her in with my Spectrum Nior markers, and used some puffy white paint to give some dimension to her dress.

I used My Creative Time Just Simply Live Stamp Set  to make the "boyfriend" sentiment.
For the inside of the card I used My Creative Time's Holiday Fun Stamp Set. Just love My Creative Time stamps and how you can combine to use them with other past stamp sets to make something wonderful:)

The small sentiment that is in front of my card that reads "For my handsome" I got that sentiment form Peachy Keen's November 2012 stamp of the month set. I just masked the stamp with some tape to only get the "for my handsome" part.

I would like to enter my card in the following challenges:
KennyK's Krafty K: Challenge 161 button boots bling
Craftin Desert Divas: Linky Party
Paper Playtime: Winter Fun
ABC Challenge: Almost Christmas

Be sure to stop by and play along on these fun challenges. Stay tune, I have more Christmas creations to share with you all:)

Custom Orders

Hello everyone:) I have some custom order invitations to share with you guys today. A friend of a friend needed some simple wedding invitations ASAP. I was told that the bride had not yet chosen her wedding colors but that her favorite colors were black, red, and yellow. So these are the two wedding invitation samples I came up with.

For the 1st invite I used My Creative Time's Rolled Flower Dies, to make the cute red vibrant flower.Then I ran a strip of black and white decorative scrapbooking paper to add more color to the invite.

The 2nd invite I made, I used the colors cream and yellow. I found these Spanish traditional wedding flowers at Michael's and just added a cream/yellow organza bow along with these cute double heart charms (that I also found at Michael's). I embossed a strip of light yellow scrapbook paper with my Cuttlebug and added it to my card.

I gave both invitations to my friend to show to the bride so she can choose her favorite. Want to guess which one she choose?...

The bride to be went with the yellow and cream invitations:) Forty plus invitations have been printed, completed and given to the bride to be to pass out to all her guests.

I would like to enter my invitation creation into the following challenges:
Challenges 4 Everybody: Challenge 35 Anything Goes
