I'm Still Here!!

First of all, I hope all my American friends had a wonderful Thanksgiving! Ours was very nice and plentiful! Boy, did I eat too much!

I have two cards to share with you tonight. The first one is a card that I made for the recipients of a swap I do monthly in the Magnolia-Licious Yahoo Group called "It's Raining Cards". I used Tilda with Lantern and used Deb's sketch challenge for the layout of my card. You can find the Bi-Weekly Challenges here.

I used DP from a Christmas pack from My Minds Eye which I found at Michaels! I LOVE the paper in this pack. I colored Tilda with Copic Markers and cut out the snow flakes with my Sizzlet die cuts. I added the glitter and used distress ink to ink around the edges of the image and the border. I used Nesties to cut out the ribbon tag and then looped the ivory organza ribbon through the tag.





The next card I created with Gina K stamps from the Magic of Christmas by Rupa Shevde. I love this image.. it's so elegant! I used DP again from the Christmas stack from My Minds Eye and you can barely see it but I used a border punch from Marth Stewart along the edge of the snowflake paper. I adhered the stamped image which was embossed with Gold ink and clear embossing powder to the card with foam dimensionals. Then I added the ribbon and boom... I was done.





I'm waiting on a box from the big brown truck which shall arrive tomorrow and as soon as my goodies arrive, I'll have more to show this week!

Thanks for stopping by!!
