A Few Cards I've Created Lately

Card #1
With this card, I had to follow a sketch and it happened to be a shaped card - I cut the shape on my Cricut (base card and circles).  I stamped the candle twice and raised the poinsettias - it was coloured with markers and water coloured pencils.  The embellies on the left are from Michael's and the "Merry Christmas" was from a confetti bag bought at Micahel's.  I added the red bow at the top to finish it off.



 Card #2
This card was made on my Cricut except for the butterfly which is punched (MS Punch).  I used a sky background (DP) and added a green hill in the back for grass.

 Card #3
I am so pleased with this one!  The little mouse is stamped and coloured with a marker (the hat) and the rest with water colour pencils.  This card, is a Cuttlebug Challenge and we had to use a die, a couple punches
and 3 gems plus a ribbon.  The poinsettias in the upper corner are 3d stickers I had and the Merry Christmas is from a package of Christmas confetti.


Well, Christmas isn't far off and I am well started now - have about 40 cards made.  Hope you all are having a happy crafting time and getting in the swing for the Holiday Season.  Thanks for stopping to look.
