More Christmas Cards!

Well, its beginning to look ALOT like Christmas. I even had the classic Christmas carols playing at my place today.

Something I like to do, is make several different cards with the same images, elements and accents. So, here is the cutie from Whiff of Joy again - but wearing her Christmas red. Now looking at this photo has confirmed how much I love coloring with Copic markers. I don't have a red Copic yet, and had to use my SU! real red. I hate the streaks you get with regular markers. So i will have to keep my eye open for a sale for some more Copics!

I made her first into an easel card. The holly berries are done with red stickles, and I used irridescent stickles for the trim on her coat.

I like this fold because you can display your card just like art! Here is the inside. The accent is from SU! Its from the felt flurries pack, and a pearl from the pretties kit.

another simpler variation using the same paper pack and embellishements.
I have always admired other stampers who decorate the insides of thier cards. So I thought I'd keep on going with that habit. The sentiment here is from Elzybells. All PP and CS is from SU!
I recently took the time to go and get a set of UV nails. They use a biogel and a UV light, and its supposed to be better than acrylic. I almost never treat myself like this, but I thought, its the holidays, and I deserve a little pampering. The typing part is taking a bit to get used to. So enjoy the inclusion my one pretty nail.. haha you may never see it again! LOL!

Thanks for stopping by!!

Check out the fancy talons! LOL! My nails are super short & bare. What can I say? I'm a crafter. LOL!

Okay, I am totally impressed because not only is this adorable, but I haven't been brave enough to try an easel card yet. You rocked this one! Fab job!
