Again, these images are from the October 2013 kit of the month. I water colored the trees and added some glitter glue, then distressed and edged the paper with ink. The tag was decorated with a white gel pen, then I also dotted around the card edge.
I finished it off with some twine, ribbon and an inked doily. A sweet, woodsy Christmas card. Tell me what you think.Thanks and I appreciate your comments.
Supplies: Stickles green glitter glue, white gel pen, green and brown watercolor brush pens, Teresa Collins Vintage Finds twine, craft ribbon, 4x4 doily, Tim Holtz distressed ink, pearl gemstones

It's going on 2:00 pm where I live and I'm still in my jammies. Love having the day off and watching Hallmark Christmas movies! I did some online shopping but no way am I heading out into the throng today.
How about you? Do you shop online, get out in the crowds or both? I was able to get the same prices online as the major stores were offering and didn't have to fight any crowds or long lines. And.... Sipping on cocoa too. Ya can't beat that.

It was pretty simple to make, starting with
a kraft card, layering some designer paper and embellishing with ribbon and glittery stars.
I stamped the verse on cream colored cardstock and did a little watercolor on the paper and raised it over a 4x4'' doily with pop dots. Speaking of the doily, I edged it with beige Colorbox ink and added some yellow Stickles glitter glue.
A joyful and sweet Christmas card!

What does he want? The same thing every other kid his age wants ; technology. And accessories for technology. And accessories that coordinate with accessories. Oh an
d a Duck Dynasty Jr Archery set. And an Uggly Pug electronic dog that makes gross noises.
I might as well accept the fact that my little guy isn't so little anymore. No more dump trucks or pirate costumes or cowboy hats. He wants nano micro juju pods or whatever. So there we have it. It's technology or money from here on out. Or a Nerf Elite N rapid striker CS shooter. Ah, something I recognize... Nerf. He's still my baby after all.

The next day the boys took off for the Gulf Shores Zoo and had a blast, once again, while I'm in meetings all day. Doesn't seem right does it? *grin
That night was super cold but we participated outdoors in a mullet toss. The fish, not the hairstyle. Believe it or not, it was actually fun. Apparently, it's a big event there every year. Later we ate at a sponsored '' luau'' where a DJ was spinning tunes. People were line dancing and my 11 year old tore onto the dance floor when he recognized dances he learned at school. He was hilarious and not shy at all!
By the end of the 3rd day, the hubby and son were getting on each others nerves cause mom is not around to buffer. Welcome to my world dad!
Lastly, I spent the last night in Daphne, AL with my BFF from high school. We had so much fun staying up late and reminiscing. Just like old times... Miss her already. So there you have it. Mommy did all the work but had fun anyway. Oh and if you ever get to Ed's Seafood Shak? I highly recommend Yo Mommas platter. Could feed 3 people!

So I had this great stamp from the Unity Stamp Co and made a cute tag for the card with some washi tape, button and string. I love owls and didn't have time for anything fancy so these are just some cute stickers. I had also punched the edge of the paper with a Knock Out edge punch and added some green Stickles glitter glue, dotting the holes. Hope this makes my friend feel better.....

Let me just highlight a few things on this card. The white lace ribbon with hearts was inked up with yellow ink to blend in with the Basic Grey paper. I fashioned a piece of cream wired ribbon into a bow then wrapped a piece of fiber trim around it. I also added some Stickles glitter glue in a few places on the sentiment and added some Princess Twinkle cut yellow rhinestones from Queen & Co.
This card has a lot of love poured into it for a special friend who suffered a loss recently. Thanks for looking. I appreciate your comments. God bless!
