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:

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.

Tips:

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.
