Pink and Red Christmas

My dear husband loves getting handmade cards. I usually make 4 to 5 cards for him at Christmas. This year, quite serendipitously all his cards were in pink and red. Since there was really no time to blog before Christmas I thought I would share all 5 cards with you now.

I use this very old Penny Black stamp that I have been using for George's Christmas card for the last 12 or more years. He finally realized this year, that I use this stamp every year!! Here is a link to last year's card.

George always gets a card from our sweet girl Miss Pinkie. Avery Elle had the classy holiday cat out there!

We had a bit of scare with her this past summer. She was pretty sick. George said the best Christmas present this year was having Pinkie at Christmas. I agree. 

George is a sucker for cards with bears, so I  couldn't pass up this stamp from Wplus9. I even used pattern paper, a rarity these days.

OMG, how could I pass up these cute mice Clearly Besotted!!

Lastly, Ellen Hutson's Essentials by Ellen had this absolutely fab ornament set that you could make these adorable snowmen faces. Love, love, love this card!

I hope you enjoyed seeing all of the hub's cards. Maybe they will inspire you to create for that someone special in your life!

Winter wonderland

Hey everyone! I hope you all had a great holiday so far. I had a fabulous one. This was the first year I was ahead of the game. The tree was up and decorated, my cards were done and mailed and gifts made 2 weeks before Christmas!! Unheard of!!

So with Christmas 2016 under my belt, I decided to get back to blogging a bit. This card was a last minute card that I made with a Tim Holtz die that I forgot I had. I decided to use the negative for this simple but elegant holiday card. I only sent this card to one person and will be using this idea for my cards next year.

I entering this into my alma mater  Happy Little Stampers, the "anything goes with dies" challenge.

 Another fav challenge site, Shopping our Stash is looking for "winter themed, but not not Christmas related" Do you think the star on the tree will disqualify me?!!?

Donna from Cards in Envy asked me to post my card for their "celebrate the  season" challenge. How could I resist?!!?😀

I am hoping to spend the next few days doing some serious stamping before school starts back up.

Check back in soon,
