Get Well Card

Want to share with you a card I created for a friend of mine who has just had surgery. She loves black and white and the yellow is my take for a challenge posted by  ttp://theplaydatecafe.blogspot.com/            I love black and white with a splash of color. These challenges are some of my favorites.  The background is a black and white paper and I stamped a large medallion on it in yellow.  However, as you can see, it does not show up well....but I kind of like it.  The butterflies are a punch from Martha Stewart. I put TH Rock Candy Stickles all over the butterflies...it does not show up here, but I LOVE the crystal sugar look. Rock Candy dries differently than the normal Stickles... besides a glaze, it dries with little crystals visible in the glaze...looks like it's coated with crystalized sugar.

Have a blessed Christmas season,

It's the week of Christmas!!!

Here is a card I made with my favorite reindeer image.
The stamp is from Stampin' Up! and I know we have all seen it a lot.
But I love it!!! This one is stamped in Versamark and then embossed in silver.
It shows up beautifully on the navy cardstock.
The background is dry embossed in blues and 2nd generation stamped with trees to give it a woodsy look.
The white flourishes are Sizzix cut with a Cuttlebug.

I am entering the card into
Simon Says is blessing the winner with a $50 shopping spree....WOO-HOO!!!

Good luck, everybody!!!
