Better Late than Never :)

Hello All... I hope everyone's Christmas was a wonderful one full of family and friends! I know i've been MIA for a few weeks but I just wanted to post a project that I made for a gift that was given out on Christmas... And i've been anxoius to get back to crafting because I got myself the Cricut Expression this week and I know that there are a lot more projects that I can do on it versus my little Cricut machine :) That and I am now a proud owner of a Gypsy !! Yay!!! I've been taking it to work with me and working on things at work here and there too haha!! Now onto my little project!!

For this project my SIL and Brother needed a gift card holder to give to my other Brother and didnt realize that they needed on until Christmas Eve... So Luckily I have a wonderful set of Stamps that I got from K Andrew Designs  and some very cute paper I quickly got the situation under control :)

For this I used some red snowflake paper as the envelope part;
Then I cut a circle using my Martha Stewart circle cutter
In the center I used a cute little penguin sticker that I found at Michaels (i couldnt resist them they were so cute in the package it was like they were calling my name to buy them), For the sentiment I used the "Winter Wishes" stamp set from K Andrew Designs
Then i used some Tim Holtz green ink around the edges to give it a little color since it was just white. Then I tied a piece of ribbon around it and there it is :)

Here is a preview of the AWESOME stamp set that I used to make this card:

If you havent checked out her stamp sets yet, you should really think about it because they stamp so nicely , clean nicely and the stamp sets are all mix and match and there are so many great sets that once you get cant get enough of them! Plus Kristal donates a portion of each stamp set sale to a charity. Each stamp set goes to a different charity! How great is that?!

Until next time <3

Simply Sunday Challenge - Joys Of The Season

Well todays post is being created for the Simply Sunday Challenge at Getting Cricky .
The Theme for this week is Joys of the Season - A holiday decoration. So for this weeks post I created a snowman out of ivy bowls and votive holders. Along with some other neat things :)
 I am now using this little guy as the centerpiece on my table! He is so adorable and welcoming to people!  For his little sign I used the wonderful K Andrews stamp set "Winter Wishes"  I have to admit these stamps are good for ANY project you can think of!
