Christmas Card ~ Snow Friends {2nd Post}

OMGosh I can't believe Christmas is just 118 days away.
I have a little Christmas card to share.
I printed off this sweet image in two different sizes.
After I colored them up I fussy cut the 
smaller snowpeep out and placed him by his friend.
I finished my card off with a handwritten sentiment.



*Card base 4.25 x 5.5 in.
*Snowpeeps and bird from the Candy Cane for Snowman digi set from From the Heart.
*Sentiment handwritten by me.
*B05, B21, BV08, E13, YR04 and R29 markers from Copic.

May your day always be filled with love and laughter.

Thank you card ~ Framed In Black {2nd Post}

I was in a CAS creating kind of mood today.
I sat down with this idea in mind but couldn't decide on base colors.
I went back and forth for 25 minutes trying to decide whether 
I wanted the lined paper to be framed with pink or black.
What's a girl to do? Make cards using both colors of course.
On my second card I used the black frame base.



*Card base 4.25 x 5.5 in.
*Pencil cut using the Love To Learn set from My Creative Time.
*Sentiment cut using the Stitched Rectangular Frame Dies & More set from My Creative Time.
*Designs paper from a Heidi Swapp 6x8 pad from American Crafts.

May your day always be filled with love and laughter.

I thought it would be fun to have the pencil 
look as if it had written the die cut thanks.
