Normally I can't post more than 2 or 3 cards at a time. If I do the order of the words that are supposed to match the cards is screwed up! So, I am doing a second post, hopefully without the hassle!
Gracie. Can't help myself! She is sooooo cute!

Clear stamp from Woodware.

More Christmas variations with the My Favorite things die. Still one of MY favorites! Ha 

Thanks for looking!
It's Saturday the 23rd of January already! Time Time, we all know it goes way to fast! That is, unless you are 12. Today I have a months worth of card making to show. The Christmas cards will be for the nursing home this coming Christmas. My goal is to do a second nursing home this year. It seems like so little, yet it does make a difference. I was suprised this year when a resident told me she had kept her card from last year. So, the other cards, from flowers to bearz are a variety for churches do use them as they are needed
I am still loving this 'Stitched lattice background' from Memory Box! The pine border and the poinsettia strip are also Memory Box dies. I cut the poinsettia in both red and silver. When I finished the 'silver', I found I still had pieces of red outlines and silver leaves. So I bottom card is the Extra from the first card.

Ready for blues!!  I have to say I have been using paper, dies and stamps that I haven't used for a long time. Add to that, those crazy 'pieces' of  'stuff' (like ribbon, stuff started, and never finished like  colored images),  stuff that doesn't have a home. Feels good to Use it! I made a ton layered labels for the inside of cards. But guess what, they are never the right size or color. So I even tried to build a card to match the words! Pathetic!
A Memory Box swirl background die with the'extra' strip of rub-ons from the $1.00 store!

Bird stamp set from Stampendous. I have had it for a long time. So, as usual, I do 3 or 4 at a time. Really like it. Added a Get Well sentiment inside. The little 'Believe" is from Elizabeth Crafts.

The background die is a 'stitched lattice' from Memory Box. Just got it this weekend and made a bunch of cards. I really do try not to cut too many extra! But you know, just one more color! So pretty.

Pretty easy ideas. I used Spellbinder Circle delight with another die from Marianne. Not sure they name their dies. I used the Penny Black collage stamp as a focal point for the the lavendar card.
Thanks for looking!

One more card to show you today!
This is a stamp from PSX. It is the Anemone. I stamped this a long time ago. So since it was 'sitting' in front of me, and the yellow colors were in there, I just kept coloring! I used a combination of distress and memento for the blue shading. And the background die is the Regalia from Spellbinders.
Have a great day!

Happy New Years!
 2016, I just wanted to get used to typing or writing it!
Really quick look at a couple cards I did this week. I love my copics!

Bought a tiny $1.00 stamp at Tuesday Morning. I repeated the pattern randomly, colored with copics and splattered with a watercolor brush. These would make easy 'thank you' cards. One of the verses is an old stamp. The 'So Very Blessed' is by Tuesday morning.
