An early Christmas card share :)

I know it's only August-
much too early to be posting Christmas cards-
but I have a cute little gift card holder that I wanted to share. :)
This is a card I made for a recent card that didn't get picked up.
Love this stamp set from Paper Smooches! 
I paired it with papers from Crate Paper
and a Maya Road kraft snowflake.
I like this design for the coffee cup-
I think I will try it with other shapes in place of the snowflake
(maybe a circle or heart?)
Thanks for visiting today! :)

Sigh...You are Fabulous.

What?  Two shares in two days? 
That's a record for me this summer. :)
This is a "reject" from a recent call that is a bit different from my usual style. 
It was my first time using gold paint,
but with gold trending right now, I wanted to give it a try. 
I love all of the Pinterest pins that combine pastels with gold,
so I thought it would look great on a card.
The chipboard sticker and papers are from Basic Grey's Knee Highs collection, sentiment stamp is from Unity, and that fun gold paper fringe is from K & Co.
Thanks for popping by!

hello. :)

So, I got a not-so-subtle reminder that I haven't updated the blog for a while!
(Thanks, Steph!)
I have made a few cards over my summer vacation,
but haven't taken the time to share many. 
Here's a bright one for you today.
I am in love with neon right now!
I just got the new neon ink pads from Hero Arts, too, so you'll probably need sunglasses to read my blog before the summer's over. ;)
I cut this fun kraft and neon background using the Creative Cards cartridge from Cricut. 
Fun, huh?
The stamp is from Studio G.  I stamped it with Versamark
and embossed with black embossing powder.
I'm hoping that I have some time today to get inky.  Happy Tuesday! :)
