The last RMDH Card...

This little guy looks so cute gazing at the stars! I just stamped him in gray and carefully colored so I would not smear the ink, and watercolored his body a little to add some depth. A little shiny ribbon and some scallops, and he was done. This card really did not photograph well, but I thought I would share it anyway.

That's it. All the cards I made for Ronald McDonald House. Soon, I will upload the cards I made for friends. With less time pressure, those were a little more complex (for the most part).

I wanted to do something in traditional colors too! I used my Cuttlebug embossing folders for the background and I have always loved (but never used) these little deer. They seemed to ink up better with the craft inks, but other than that, this card came together in minutes.

Easiest card in the World!

This was actually one of the last cards I made for Ronald McDonald House. I was getting tired, so I wanted something that was easy to make. I dug into some Cosmo Cricket paper (from last year's Christmas purchases...) and made a simple layout for the card. Then I wanted to use the snowflake stamp from the 2008 scallop set from SAB. You know what? I actually had trouble finding colors to match these papers! None of my SU colors worked. You would think that with over 70 colors I have... and I did not bring any other pad. Oops. So, I went with brown. I wish I have that blueish-green to color the snowflake. Hopefully, they liked them anyway.

To a new lawyer

My former law clerk and friend passed the bar. She got her results right before Thanksgiving and we went to brunch right afterwards. I really wanted to make her a little cards. What could be better for it than lawyerbella! She kind of looks like a judge to me, but maybe that will be in her future too!

Everything but the stamp is Stampin' Up.

Gingerbread Man Card

I love this little guy! He comes in a Stampin Up hostess set called Deer Friends and they are all little circles you can punch out. I made a ton of my cards with the set for this Christmas (more to come later...)

Everything is SU except the snowflake stamp. I did not plan to use that, but it seemed to go with the design inside the circles on the brown paper and the card needed something else when I got it all glued together. I also used some Stickles to color the ends of his feet and hands to make it look like frosting. That is as close as I come to baking! LOL

Two of my favorite cards I made for Ronald McDonald House this year. The idea came from Splitcoaststampers with the tree and of course I had to make version with snowflakes cause I LOVE them. I used various shades of SU greens/blues to give it depth. These were so fun to make. I wish I had done a few for my own cards. Maybe I will find a way for valentines day...

Just a quick post with the necklace and earrings I made for my paralegal at work. Made with Sterling Silver and Labradorite. It has a fun, bluish, iridescent finish. All wire wrapped.

Will post the Christmas cards I sent out soon...
