Another Christmas Card

I haven't crafted in a few weeks. I jammed my index finger at the gym and once that started healing I needed to get busy cleaning out my gardens for winter. I still need to remove the canopy from my gazebo and get the gutters and windows cleaned but it is raining today. I make multiples for Holiday cards. I colored 14 of the ornament stamps so today I am making them into cards. This is one of the designs. Stamp and die set is simply celebrate winter from Lawn Fawn. The Merry Christmas line border is also Lawn Fawn. The pattern paper is Lawn Fawn really rainbow Christmas. My card bases are always papertrey ink cardstock.

Make Motivate Connect Make A TAG Linkup Party #6

After lunch I saw this weeks challenge so I played in the craft room and this is my submission. I used the new really rainbow lawn fawn snowflake paper for the background. The oval is lawn fawn stitched oval die stamped with an old stampin up set called mini mates and heat embossed in white. The snowflakes were cut in sliver using My Creative Time winter flake dies. The dangling beads I put together from my jewelry making stash. The ribbons were left overs from a school project last year from hobby lobby.

more flowers

I played some more with that flower Simon Says Stamp set from my previous post and created a background. The thanks die cut is Simon Says stamp. I double cut that in black and silver to shadow it. 

Sorry lighting is awful. Its been raining pretty much for 5 days and I hate using artificial light.

use flowers

In 2014 my mother moved in with me so I could assist in her care. She passed away in 2015. In the time since I've considered myself an on demand crafter. I produce cards and banners etc when needed but I didn't sit down on a regular basis with the same creative passion prior to life demands. My life has slowed down and again taken a new turn with retirement from 40 years teaching in June. I feel my old passions returning and I'm using Creations with Christina's Make~Motivate~Connect to push my boundaries a little trying challenges again and uploading to here.

This weeks challenge is use flowers. Ha! It quickly became clear I am not a flower girl. I did manage to find a Simon says stamp set from a card kit I had never opened called birthday flowers. Again it is a very simple design. I feel that I am trying to find who I am as a creator since for 3 years I looked up something on pinterest and just made it my own. I've placed an order from Simon says stamp to help get some creative juices flowing so we shall see.

super simple thank you card

Sometimes I just stamp and color images in front the the tv. I stock pile them and then just make a bunch of super simple thank you cards out of them.
