My home office has ordered 25 cards for the managers. Since there are usually couples I figured that the guys wouldn't like to have a card wth little girls or flowers and ribbons, so I have had to dig a little bit, but it has been kind of fun. I actually kid out four of these tonight, in between fixing dinner and watching a movie with hubby.

I am trying to get more masculine stamps, and I really like this one. The stamps are Tim Holtz as is the lamp post. The fence is a Memory Box die. I just discovered Memory Box and I absolutely love them! Besides the fact that they cost much less than Spellbinders.
I'm going to play with this design because I'm not real happy with it. It looks ok, but I really want the shirt to have arms. The mini brads worked real well for buttons.

This is a Spellbinders die that I picked up last week at J's for 40% off. The flowers were a stemmed silk flower that I took apart. Stamps are Hero Arts. Leaf is Spellbinders, Flourish Tim Holtz. Ribbon I got on sale at J's for .50. Button from stash.
I discovered what darling little cards you could do with white backed cardstock this Christmas at Impress Stamps. While I wouldn't want to do all my cards this way, it is nice to just put an image and a bow or greeting on a card and not do all the 'extras'. Both giraff's are digitals, I think from Bugaboo. They will have a happy birthday sentiment inside. I thought they were perfect for kids birthdays.

I started this little girl some time ago, then she got put on a shelf while I was playing with my digitals. The sentiment stamp is Tim Holtz, flowers are coffee filters that were cut with the 1 inch round scallop punch and colored with dye ink reinker.

Everybody knows that I don't like rodents... with a passion, and I usually avoid stamps with them also. However, this little Christmas Mouse by Mo Manning was just too cute not to like. I love the polka dot tea cup, the cheese and the stocking and the letter to Santa.

Been wanting the little drummer boy since I first saw him, and I wasn't dissappointed. I think he is just too cute. I pretty much followed the colors used on the website. The die cuts are Tim Holtz.
