Happy New Year-Christmas Tags

 Happy New Year Friends!  Wishing you all a Happy, Healthy, and Prosperous 2017.  It's cold here in Georgia tonight.  Ha, I still have my Christmas decorations up as I got sick right after the new year.  That nasty cold bug went around to practically the whole family.  Wanted to share some tags with you that I made for Christmas.
All these tags were inspired by Jill Norwood on Youtube. I love to watch her "Curating for Christmas" videos.  She makes some of the pretties tags ever!!!  The Candy Cane Tag is a Sizzix die,  The Snowman is also a Sizzix Die.  The Santa is a Marieanne Creatables die.  The Gingerbread man and the Hot Chocolate tag is also a Sizzix die.  I had fun making these tags for family this year.  I made mini loaded envelopes for their Christmas cards and stuffed them with these tags.

Thanks so much for dropping by for a look.  Hope to be back crafting as soon as I get these Christmas decorations down.  I am ready to get back at it.  What have you been up to lately?  Until next time, Happy Crafting.

Snowman and Penguin Christmas Cards

 Hello everyone.  Today's share is a couple of Christmas cards that were "easy peasy" to create.  We all need that during Christmas don't we.  I make all the cards I send so I have to dream up quickly made cards.  These card were made with the sticker that were sold at Michael's in the kids section.  Isn't this snowman darling.  He makes for a super cute card.
This is also another sticker that came in the same package as the Snowman.  These stickers are made of felt and are dimensional.  The little ornament that the Penguin is holding is a wooden sticker that was another Michael's purchase.  After I made these I had wished I had bought more packages of these cuties.  But, maybe they will have some just as cute next year.

Thanks so much for stopping by today to see the cards I made.  I have another post tomorrow with more cards.  If you have any questions, please leave a comment.  I would be happy to help.  Happy Crafting and Happy New Year!

Cardinal Themed Loaded Envelope and Card

 Welcome Crafters.  Over the next few days I will be finishing posting my Christmas projects.  It's sad that Christmas crafting is coming to an end......but not for long for  I love my Christmas dies and stamps. 
 Every year I make a "Cardinal" themed card from my husbands brother and sister-in-law.  This was this years card.  It was created with K&Company Cardinal stickers which I believe are no longer available.  A Darice die was used as a back drop to the Cardinal.  The poinsettia is a Yvonne Creations die and the corners are a Joy! Craft die.
Besides the card I decided to make a Cardinal themed loaded envelope stugged with gift tags and package decorations.  If you would like to see all the tags this envelope was stuffed with you can see my video.
Thanks so much for stopping by today.  Hope you and your family had a very Merry Christmas.  Please come back again soon as I will be sharing more Christmas projects before the new year.  Happy Crafting!
