Exercising Old Ladies

My good friend, Sheri Danielson (Omaha, NB), sent me a crapload of images of hedgehog stamps, House Mouse images and a whole lot more. I was so excited!!! I can't color fast enough!! This is one of the images she sent - hilarious!! I made it for a friend going to Weight Watchers. She's going to kill herself laughing. The paper is new from Making Memories and the buttons and blossoms are 5th Avenue Making Memories as well. That one was fun! Thanks so much Sheri!

Whipper Snapper - Waiting For Santa

For some reason I got stumped on this guy but I think I finally got it. I put Liquid Applique Frosty's hood, ground, top of the North Pole sign and on the ball then added Stickles. There is also Stickles on the red stripes on the pole. I used Stampendous snowflakes I got from an RAK last year. They're so cute! I have a few more Whipper Snapper's I must try out!! Yippeeeeeeeeee!

Riley - Santa Riley

As much as I would love to take credit for this card I can't. I love surfing blogs sometimes. You find the most talented people and this time I found very creative and inspiring Shannon! If you haven't seen her blog Live, Love, Laugh and STAMP you must check it out. I can't wait to do more Riley's!

Hanna Stamps

I made this one for the janitors at work. We have 10 of them so I wanted something quick and easy and hopefully this will be okay. My husband says the bg is too white so I think I will add a piece of ribbon where the card is embossed near the bottom using the Swiss Dots Cuttlebug embossing folder. I can't get enough of those!! Last year the ladies in the office each chipped in a few bucks and we did up mugs filled with yummies as a thanks for cleaning our offices all year. They just loved it! If you have any more tips or suggestions for me please let me know. It's hard to make this stamp into xmas.....thanks!!

Hats Off to the Holidays

I love the Whipper Snapper stamps but I do find it a bit hard to spruce up a card using such a big image. Lots of surfing blogs let me tell you!! LOL! I colored using Copics and fun flocked the snowman. Next time I make this I will use thicker ribbon....which I found AFTER I made this. :)
