Happy Hanukkah

During lunch today, I put together a 
Happy Hanukkah card for my boss and his family.
The blue is so soft and pretty.  I wanted to give the illusion of the menorah and just keep with the blue and white colors.

Somehow I managed to smudge the blue under the candles when I began and had no other white cardstock (since I was at work); luckily, I had some envelopes with me, so I used the work paper cutter, cutting an envelope into the perfect size for the card image.  Where there's a will, there's a way, eh?
I think that worked out pretty well!  It was zipped into the mail for a holiday piece of happy mail.

Inside, I printed this sentiment in blue ink: "May Love and Light fill your heart and home this Hanukkah".

Thanks so much for stopping by - and Happy Hanukkah!

A Different Style

This card is a different style than I usually make.  
There are many details that took quite a bit 
of time - that's probably why I don't usually do 
this type of style in creating cards.  
Besides, with working full-time, I only have about an 
hour an evening to devote to card-making, 
so I'm a quick "in and out" kinda gal, usually.

I actually sewed the card layers together, too.  
It's a sweet look with lots of dimension, sponging, and layers.  I call this style of card "primitive".

Thanks so much for stopping by - hope you have plenty of time to create and get inky!

95 Cards Done

I've been busy getting Christmas/Holiday cards created.
At this point, the count is at 95 cards done.
This is one of my favorites so far...
 I had to play with the new version of Photoshop to get these from my iPad.  I took the pictures of the card at work during lunch break.  This card is headed to my card angel tomorrow.
Lots of fun coloring on this card using the White Christmas stamp set.  It's fantastic using the different elements to make cute winter scenes, especially those adorable bluebirds.

Okay - only about 100 more cards to go!
