Had to do just one more today. I've really been wanting to do a pink ornament though I have a limited amount of pink pattern paper.
I love love love this die by Memory Box. It is actually two dies, the top and the bottom. The top was really hard to cut until I got a tip to use bubble wrap between the paper and the die, and now it works perfect. The background on both dies are actually glitter paper, and the flourish front is a shiny cardstock.I finally figured out how to make tiny bows too, by using a fork (the tines) to wrap the ribbon around, and then sewing the center together. It makes the perfect little size and they are always uniform in size. I just have to make sure that I sew it exactly in the center or it will be lopsided.

The only kid of mouse that will be allowed in my house!
I colored four of these little drummer boys for cards today and I almost thew this one away. I dropped a pen on it and got a green blotch on it. I have never had much luck with using the colorless blender to remove colors but I thought I would give it a try. I just hate wasting all the work that goes in to coloring a stamp.

I thought I had to settle down to something serious here. I've had so many ideas in my head, that I've been flipping from one project to another. My craft room is a disaster. So thought I get serious about Christmas cards. These are some of what was ordered by a friend. She hasn't seen them yet, sure hope she likes them. They were a lot of fun to make.
Joy is a Sizzix die, the flourish and the greenery are a Tim Holtz die.
