Dawson's School Teacher!

My son came to me and asked me to make a Card for his Teacher as well, so I told him to go through my stamps and pick something out that he liked.. His comment was - Mommy you have nothing Toronto Maple Leafs - LoL, I told him of course not Buddy, we don't cheer for them.. but that's her favourite team and I don't see anything else that I think she will like... so he opted for this stamp from Stampin Up - Day of Gratitude, the Paper used is CTMH - Magnifique Workshop on the Go Paper pack, the Ink used is Lagoon and Bamboo from CTMH - the Merry Christmas is from an unknown company, I lost the package it came in in one of my crazy clean up nights.. the ribbon is from Michael's. 

Made for a Dear Friend

This card was made for a close girlfriend, who warms my heart daily with her support and love.. The paper used is CTMH - Mistletoe Work shop on the Go paper pack, the stamp is A Sip A1109 from CTMH, I than used Clear Emboss powder on the Cup and heat embossed it, and the steam  and side swiggles I used Michael's Silver Embossing power and heat embossed that..

My Older Sister's Christmas Card

When this stamp came out all I could think of was my Sister, she loves Peacocks, it was so much fun making this for her.. and best was the call I received with her Crying. The card touched her so much, that I went to so much trouble making this.. this was the first thing that she has seen that I have made, now she's getting into scrapbooking with her girls.. the card I guess you could say was her insperation to start.  This card was made with the following - CTMH - Magnigique Work shop on the Go paper pack, the stamp - CTMH Circle of Love D1438, ink used CTMH - Petal, Pear and Lagoon.
