Birthday Card for My Sugar Sweet Friend

Yesterday was my dear friend's birthday.  She IS definitely "Sugar Sweet" with a heart of gold.  

Here's the card I made for her.  I inked "Blossom" and "Pebbles" images by C.C. Designs with Copics.  Added some texture with Frantage.  Love the font of the laser cut sentiment by and from Island Scrapbooking.  Topped it off with little butterflies using a punch by EK.

Thanks for stopping by and have a super-duper crafty weekend.

Holiday Cards

Before another year comes to an end, I want to share these awesome cards and calendar I received from my super crafty friends/cuz.

This gorgeous card is from my sweet cuz.  White-on-white always adds an elegant touch.

This cute and fun card is from Eva.  Hop over to her blog here to get inspired by her diversified creativity.  And here for her Etsy store.  She's so talented. 

This kawai'i (cute) shaker calendar is by Eva too.   I have it on my computer desk and admire it everyday.   I give it a little shake here-and-there.   Love it a LOT.

Awww, and doesn't this darling pix of Latte make your heart melt?   Totally in love with this sweet card from Eunice.  She is an inspiration to me also with the fancy interactive cards and projects she creates.  You'll be in awe too.  Hop over to her blog here.  Her creations will knock your socks off.

Another sweet and kawai'i card.  This one is from Cheryl.   Really love the bokeh DP and cute little reindeer.  Hop over to Cheryl's blog here and get inspired too.  She comes up with some super cute ideas.

This cutie patootie card is by Cindy.   Love this card design a lot.  "Boo-Boo" by Sister Stamps goes so perfectly and how clever that she added Santa's cap on his head.   Hop over to Cindy's blog here.  You're sure to be inspired with her creativity too.

Thank you everyone!!!  Really appreciate it.
