Christmas in July?

Here's a darling image (Img 4070) from Sherri Baldy that I used to create a simple Christmas card today.  I just love this cute little girl sitting atop her letter for Santa.  Just perfect as a Christmas time card.   Summer is a time when many cardmakers will start up their Christmas card making.  Must admit this is all of ONE for me.....

I hope you are having a wonderful summertime and you are also thinking about taking a little break in the heat and making some adorable Christmas cards!  Check out all of Sherri Baldy's great Christmas theme stamps in her Bestie's shop

Cheers, Holley

Owl rather be with you!

Here's the cutest owl card today from artist Gerda Steiner Designs.  She has some darling animal stamps including owls!  (also, too cute Hippos!!)  Hope you love this this sweet card today.  I am getting back to card making this summer as I have pretty much finished all the selling, so now I will have more time for crafting and cleaning (ugh, cleaning). But I need to get some of that done before the school year gets started.

Hope you are having a wonderful summer still. Enjoy it.  It seems to be going so very fast.

Dare to be yourself

Sharing a little sexy woman card today, I haven't shared a lot of slinky tarts lately, but I do adore making some VaVaVoom love filled cards for the DH. I hope this one gives him a smile today.  Is it as hot where you are as it is where I am?

It's about 100 deg F with a heat index they are saying is 110Deg.  UGH.  Doesn't make me want to be outside, that's for sure.

I thought this card was a little bit funny given all the downpour on the 4th of July parade.  But  seriously, I just love the Grumplings from Taylored Expressions.  They are TOO funny.  This card could be perfect for any number of occasions and not have to be literal for that rain on the recent national parade.

Have a wonderful Tuesday and enjoy something special.

Thought a little LLama card would be some fun today.  Here's a quick and cute card that I made up when someone gave me a bunch of adorable LLama embellishments.  TOO FUN.  This year for easter, my hubby bought me a hilarious stuffed llama, though, more the shape of a round ball, it has a llama face on it, but definitely is more shaped like an easter egg lol!  Too soft though, so I love it.

Hope you are having a great week.  Drop by tomorrow for a brand new card using new images from Sandra Caldwell!
