Tiny Friends Birthday

 Hi everyone, just a quick post from me tonight. I created a birthday card for a co-workers daughter. I wanted to play with my new distress oxides (LOVE them by the way). While blending I hopped online and bought a few more colours. 

Excuse the photo as I've taken a photo at night due to taking the card with me to work in the morning.

I created a rainbow effect then flicked water over the panel. Then I decided to flick white and black paint as well.
I die cut my generic sentiment and used vellum for the solid background.
I stamped and coloured my images then die cut them out.
This actually didn't take very long and was a lot of fun to make.

I would like to enter my card over at the following challenges -
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday (Anything Goes), Simon Says Stamp Monday (Spritz and Splatter), The Dream Factory (Up), Sweet Stampers (Dies and/or Punches), Crafty Creations (Anything Goes), Unicorn Challenge (Anything Goes), Get Creative Challenge (Anything Goes)

Thanks for popping in and have a great night :)

Twas the Night Before Christmas


I have a few new Lawn Fawn sets that I purchased off a destash site and wanted to play :) I created a Christmas card using 'Tiny Christmas', 'Ho-Ho-Holidays', 'Let's Play' (NEW), 'Christmas Dreams', and 'Holiday Helpers' (NEW).

There are a few presents that need to be wrapped by Santa and his helper. They are having a quick break while enjoying a festive beverage. 
I'm glad the cat is sleeping because it may not be happy when the new puppy is introduced to the family :)
