It's a wrap


It’s that time of year where we are wrapping it up literally. I have gotten so much inspiration from viewing other bloggers present their holiday creations and ideas. I want to thank all the creative women and some men for their generosity in sharing their work on the web. It always gives me brand new ways of looking at things.

Here are a few of my gift wraps. Can you see inspiration from One Lucky Day or perhaps this crinkled flower tutorial on SplitCoast Stampers ?

Joy to the World and Joy to all those who blog and share their card crafting. Have a peaceful Holiday Season.


This year’s card started with this photo I took in my neighborhood.

raindeer crack

The resulting Christmas card is a drawing inspire by this crack.

The new Spellbinder A2 layers dies saved me an amazing amount of time when I was cutting out each of the four drawings printed on one piece of paper.

Here is a closer look.

This was a lot of fun from start to finish. And I only have twenty more cards to go. Thanks for taking a look during your busy holiday season.
