Super Girly Cards

Here are some ultra feminine cards I finally finished last night. They were my go-to project when I was tired of Christmas stuff. I used French Manor for the peacock, and Art Nouveau for the butterfly. I also buckled down and seriously tried to have the patience to string enough beads to go around that last card. Woo-Hoo! I did it! 

More stuff...

Here are a few gift baskets I made for Christmas. Some store-bought stuff, some homemade things. 

Here are some cute sugar scrubs that I made for each color-themed basket.

I also made some pomegranate hand scrub.

And here is a birthday card I made for my dear husband. He wanted a subscription to siriusxm internet radio. The flash is kinda weird, but it's on fancy charcoal paper. I used Birthday Bash and Hannah Montana cartridges for everything (including the sirius logo!)

What? It's already Christmas?

Hope you all had a great Christmas. And Thanksgiving. And Fall. I haven't been on here hardly at all since school started. I haven't really played in my craftroom since then, either. :-( Anyway, here's a little of what I've been up to.

Here are a few variations I made of a card back in the fall. I've had the stamp for ages, and wanted to practice my copic coloring skills just a tad. 

I found a cute idea on Pinterest of using large cut-outs of each person's initials for their gift tag. Here are the presents for Miss R and Mr. T (and a gift together). I did the same think for all family gifts. I thought they looked cute and old fashioned, which matched my tree perfectly! The others were on darker paper, with brown ink instead of green. I missed taking photos of them.

Here is a tiny christmas tree I decorated in our kitchen. I used cookie cutters and small ornaments, along with some leftover tulle from ballerina skirts I've made.

And here is a quick picture of the kitchen window, all ready for Christmas. Guess I should've put the dishes away first. Oops!

Here is my Maternity-Ward Mrs. Claus! Sophie had her pups the day after Christmas.

They are two days old here. When I let Sophie out to do her business, some of the pups crawled over to the edge of the cage where the warm heating unit kept them cozy. When Mom got back, they weren't anxious to leave.

And here they are all snuggled together. We had 9 total, 8 survived (6 boys, 2 girls)
