Santa is coming to town!!!


I hope you all are getting ready for next week . I can't hardly wait for Santa... :))

My husband will be on vacation next week so I don't know how many cards I will be able to make on those days because with the holidays we'll go out a lot and have friends over for dinner. I want to wish you a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. Hope all your dreams come true!!!

Today I want to show you two cards that I just finished. My neighbors asked me to make two cards for their son and daughter to give them to their teachers as a present. I didn't have much time so both were really simple. The materials highlighted in blue are from the store "Roses on Paper".

Stamps : ( First card- Boy from Hanglar & Stamplar, Magnolia ( Fence and the circle in the corner) (Second card- Magnolia - the little girl and the presents)
Papers: Basic Grey ( Dasher Collection)
Inks: Distress Ink Pads from Tim Holtz and aqua pen to blend the colors.
Embellishments: Brads, Prima flowers, drew Drops ( silver) , center kisses, stickles , ribbon from SU and charms and bells from stash.
Tools: Marta Stewart punch for the corner in the second card.
Cuttlebug and Quickutz Dies for the leaves and the tags cutting an half.

Just how adorable are they? Just when you think they can't get any cuter, you change my mind! Love the colors on both cards and the packages that Tilda are sitting on are too cute! I love all the extra touches, like the tags and charms, you use. You make such lovely cards!
