Holiday Greetings For A Faithful Friend

Boo to you

I have a dear friend who never forgets to send me a card for every holiday. Sadly I, on the other hand, often forget holidays like Halloween or St. Patrick’s Day. Her cards mean so much to me that I wanted to be ready this year with the perfect handmade Halloween card.

My inspiration for the layout came from a sketch over at another one of my favorite blogs, Freshly Made Sketches. Here is the lovely sketch:

It’s always nice to do a little something special on the inside, too:

boo to you inside

When I think about my friend, and how she always remembers to send a card on holidays, I feel inspired to be just like her. There’s just something about finding a greeting card in the mailbox that makes not only my day, but my whole week! Whose week will you make today?

Happy stampin’ friends!




Merry & Bright for Freshly Made Sketches

Merry & Bright

I’m so in love with the champagne glimmer paper from Stampin’ Up! and I had fun today making snowflakes out of it with the new snowflake card thinlits die set.

Although I turned it sideways, my layout was inspired by this week’s challenge at freshlymadesketches.

Here is the sketch:

Inspired By A Sketch

Simple Card

Today’s card was my second try for last week’s freshly made sketches challenge. The sketch really inspired me and I ended up with five different cards.

Here is the sketch:

I didn’t enter this one, but I always like to have quick and easy card ideas, so I thought I would post it today. It was just that, quick and easy to make.


The designer series paper stack All Abloom is full of gorgeous designs.  The stripes on this card are from that collection stack. The button I used is from the old button collection, but the new collection is just as nice.
