I got together with all of my favorite gals over the weekend for a Christmas Card workshop put on by our wonderful Close To My Heart Rep Ronah. I love the colors of these Winter Wonderland cards.
 Jolly Santa Claus with his big pack of presents.
 And a couldn't be cuter little elf!

We made two of each, so the fact that I have 8 holiday cards done in October is a miracle in itself!

Peace & Luv,
Miss Ally is in the house!!  We made a dum-dum sucker bouquet and used a flower punch to put matching paper flowers underneath the suckers before we poked them into a pot with a styrofoam ball in it....and then she made a birthday card for her friend Vivi... 

 I personally love what she put on the inside...
If you can't read it - it sez....I hope you have a good birthday and you get good presents!

  Out of the mouths of babes - right??!!!  Love it!

Tomorrow is Boss's Day and since I made a thank you card with this layout a little while ago and liked it, I thought I'd use it again. I hope she likes it too...

Peace & Luv,
All I've got for ya is three boy's the first, with Stampin' Up papers.  Not sure if the pointy nestie layer behind the name circle looks too girly or not?  I thought it kinda looked like the sun, except blue....

Here's the second one, or Paul #1 using CTMH papers.  A rather funky little layout I came across on a card I saw on Pinterest that I liked.

Then there's Paul #2, combining Stampin' Up cardstock with CTMH papers.  Not much more to say about it.  It is after all a boy card.  If you notice I almost always use brads, well in this case I used them on all 3.  I like to think that they man them up a bit...

It's still Thursday so...Happy Friday-Eve!

Peace & Luv,
