I made a couple of simple tags to go on Christmas presents.  The tags were cut from Tags, Bags, Boxes and More.  The alpha's are from Don Juan, the ice skate and stockings are from Winter Woodlands.  Very simple cuts with limited layers and a few ribbons to jazz it up.

Birthday Card

Today is a friend's birthday and I made this card to go in the box with her present.

The base is a five inch square of kraft cardstock.  The next layer is colorbok dot paper and then another layer of kraft paper.  The kraft layers are embellished with dashes and dots from my white Signo pen.  The top layer is a die cut frame from Papertrey Ink.  LOVE Papertrey products!  The die is Fillable Frames #4 cut from sweet blush cardstock and stamped with the frame and sentiment from the stamp set of the same name in Dark Chocolate.  The frame is popped up and a sweet blush ribbon is tied around the mat.  Let's hope it gets to her in time with the terrible snow storm sweeping the midwest!

Gingerbread Frame

Hello again.  Just so you know....I have been crafting.  However, most of the things I've been working on are for Christmas presents and I don't want to risk posting pictures. 

I do have a little frame to show you today.  I used patterned paper from Cosmo Cricket Winter Mittens for the green floral background, red scalloped mat and toasty gingerbread man.  The gingerbread man was cut from the From My Kitchen cartridge and the layered scallop squares are from Mini Monograms.  I added a few gems and white 'frosting' to the image and a small strip of Ripe Avocado twill ribbon to the bottom to finish it off.  It's now hanging in the kitchen, the perfect place for a gingerbread man!
