Simon Says Challenge

This time for the Simon says Challenge it was to combine the color red and green. Of course when I think of that combination Christmas and snow immediately spring to mind. My sister had this image and I knew it was perfect for this challenge. Not much is cuter than a red and green scarf or the red boots that the hedge hog is wearing. The paper was in one of her many Christmas pads. My favorites are the mouse and the bunny. I think they are the cutest.

"Cute as a bug"

This is the card that I made for the Cupcake Craft challenge "cute as a bug". My sister had this adorable Magnolia image, Tilda with a bumble bee. I wanted Tilda's clothes to match the bee but though making her shirt and socks black and yellow would be too much. I was wrong and it turned out adorable. The paper was made by stamping the bee part from a stamp all over a sheet of white cardstock. You can't tell but the bees are embossed. It turned out very well I think.

Card for Paige

My sister follows the blog of woman(Erin at scrap, stamp and be merry) who lives next door to a 13 year old girl named Paige. Paige and her mother were out kayaking when they were rammed by a speed boat. Since the accident Paige's neighbor has taken up the task of finding crafters to make cards to send to Paige. Paige now looks forward to the mail coming every day. I thought this was a wonderful cause so I decided to make a card with my sister. The request was that the card be girly. This is what I came up with. The inside contains the message of "sending you a great big hug". In my opinion everyone loves hugs. I know that I do. And what can be better than a big huge and a cute handmade card.
