Happy Mother’s Day!

My Mom and Grandmothers are both in heaven now and I miss them dearly, but I am so thankful for their legacy of love and faith.  (and craftiness too, they were all very crafty!!)  Here are my Mother’s Day cards for this year:

Christmas Card Preview – E’lfd by Essentials by Ellen


Hi, back to Christmas Cards again!  Only 5 more days till Christmas!!!  Today’s card comes from the Essentials by Ellen Set called E’lfd.  If you are an Elf on the Shelf fan, you will love this set.  There are several elves in different positions, along with a lot of fun sentiments.  I chose the traditional sitting elf.  He is colored with Copics R27 and 29, E00 E01, E29 for his hair, and a little C00 to color the white trim.  The paper is from American Crafts.  I added a little pompom to his hat also.  Here is another version using different paper:


The little elves are busy at my house and I am sure at yours too!  “Be Good!”   Debbie



You’re A Gem – Essentials by Ellen

IMG_7978  I have a thank you card for you today.  This one uses the Essentials by Ellen stamp and die set called “Hello Gorgeous.”    I used washi tape from Recollections (I loved this combination!) for the strips at the bottom.  I cut the gem out of metallic gold paper, which I also used for the background layer. The sentiment is stamped in Memento Rocket Red Brilliance ink.  You could also make this for a birthday also  or just a cute card for your favorite girl! (There are lots of fun sentiments in this set!)  Hope you have a good day!  “Be Good!”  Debbie
