Happy New Year's Eve!

Before we begin the new year, I wanted to share my Christmas cards for 2021. It is an inverted center fold card using Stampin up's ornament stamp and dies. I have a Christmas tree in the background which is from Elizabeth Craft. I make a total of 40 cards to send out so I made 25 of these cards and 15 of a second type which is below. The stamps and dies were also from Stampin Up. I am sorry but I cannot remember the name of them. Both style cards were fun to make and the paper is from Authenique, Stampin up, and Graphic 45.
Before we close out 2021, I also wanted to share 2 more birthday cards that were in December. One was for my sister and the other one was for my brother in law, Russ.
This card is a triple fold with graphic 45 Bloom collection, which I made for my sister. It is more of a 3 panel card and has plenty of room for decorating and sentiments.
This style card is a bridge fold card. Russ has helped my sisters, and me with our craft booth with all of his carpentry so I thought this would be a fitting card for him. Happy Birthdays Chris! and Russ!
I wanted to leave you with a picture of our booth at Cole's Corner in Well's Maine. My sisters and I are having so much fun repurposing and making things for this booth. Happy New Year Everyone!

Christmas Gifts

This is the first of 3 wooden letters that I have made this month for a Christmas gift. C is for Chloe, she is a granddaughter of a very good friend. She also wanted me to do one for her other granddaughter, Emily.
These were so much fun to make! My friend is going to give them to Chloe and Emily to give to their father for his apartment to put in their rooms. I think that was a great idea! Lastly, I made one for another friend's granddaughter, Mia!
These were so much fun to make for my friends! The embellishments were fun to do too! I just love pictures and all of these girls were so "stinkin cute"! I just love, love, love making them! The pictures say it all! Merry Christmas little ones!!!
