Hi and I want to Thank You for dropping in and visiting my blog,
    Today I want to share with you a card I made for Christmas swap I was in.  The swap was we were to include some goodies and they were to fit in padded envelope or small box and we were to ship what ever you could in the box and envelope for $5.15.  Well I probably went over the $5.15 shipping limit, oh well.

     The card I made is from My Minds Eye I found a box of cards that were My Minds Eye Christmas collection at TJ Max $5.99 I grabbed those could not pass up that deal.   The Santa & Merry Christmas was already on the card I just added some embellishments to the card.  Some of the embellishments were Authentique Christmas collection, Christmas Sticker, poinsetta from Michaels $1.00 bin,  milk & cookies I think form Authentique, The banner I made from My Favorite Things Mini Pennant, paper on the banner is from My Minds Eye.  That was it just a few embellishments  you are done,

This year I have been swamped I was totatlly not prepared for Christmas.  I am trying to wrap up my Christmas shopping. I will be baking  cookies for a cookie swap I am in this weekend. 
Cant wait for that.  Any one of you done with your Christmas shopping and wrapping.  NOT me!! dont have much to wrap doing alot of gift cards.

WOW I cant believe CHRISTMAS is not too far off and I am no where near done with shopping  soo much to do in so little time.
Today for my Craftwork Cards project I made some hairbows for my babies Isabelle & Gabby they are my spoiled yorkies.  I picked up some Christmas ribbon 50% off at Michaels the other day came home and made these cute bows for them. When I saw this ribbon it was in the Christmas section I like the colors this bow can be used in spring and summer and Christmas.   I added some Candi from Craftwork Cards to the center of the flower.  I used School Day Candi for the bow Isabelle is modeling today.

here is a close up of the bow I made for her.

Well below is the frame I bought I though I would a couple of things to the frame. I love the fact that it had the male Cardinal and the female Cardinal on there but i love the vintage look and the postage stamp.

I added a sticker to this frame I picked up from one of my Christmas collections I had bought.

I also added the sticker that says from our house to your and the beautiful cardinal, he is from K&Company he is 3D.  I love those stickers I picked up a box. I made it look like he was sitting on the post fence like they know how.  When I bought this frame I knew what family picture I wanted in it and LOVE LOVE looking at it on my desk. 

Thanks for dropping in and visiting have a awesome rest of the week.

Welcome to another Craftwork Cards Candi
for my project to day I made this cute Christmas frame ornament.  I bought this Kraft Frame from Hobby Lobby.  I wish I would have bought more of them there is soo much you can do with these cute little frames. I found in the Christmas Craft section at Hobby Lobby for $1.00 on sale.

Christmas Tree Tag with Candi Ornaments

Happy Fall Thursday,
Today I show casing a couple of Christmas tags I made using the Candi ebellishments. I love the Candi embellishments they are awesome and come in soo many colors, and there are soo many ways you can use them on your cards, layouts. Thought I would get started on some Christmas tags, below are my cute tags I love how they turned out. The Candi on the tag below is called Coffe Bean
I put some lace ribbon to give it a vintage look and the paper just adds the right touch.

The Candi on the tag below is called Icing Sugar . I thought of a Christmas tree with white ornaments against the paper from Bo Bunny would give it a wintery feel. The cute banner is from My Favorite Things die and used some gold ink to color the baner. I used My Creative Time Tag dies, ribbon on top of the tag is from Liz's Paper Loft, Garland on tree I found at Hobby Lobby along with the brown ribbon on the bottom of the tag. The cute little picture on the tag is from my most favorite paper line Graphic 45.
Below is what I used on my projects, be sure to visit their blog and see what other kind of goodies they have.
