Eye Chart

Merry Christmas to all my blog friends. Hope you and you family have a good Holiday Season.
My daughter is an Optometrist so I made her an "eye chart" Christmas Card. So things came out even, I added 2 little wreathes from clip art on the bottom line. This was done on the computer. The bottom border is from my scrap box with gold ribbon and red sequins accents
Entering in Tuesday Morning Sketches challenge of "anything goes"

Star Thanks

My DH came and asked for a thank you card for the paper carrier. And GASP, I didn't have any.  Guess that will be my next project--maybe after the holidays. I was wanting to do the sketch challenge from Case This Sketch

So I did a quick CAS thank you card.
The papers are from SU and the sentiment from PTI is stamped with VersaMark and embossed with metallic silver. I backed the pattern stars with shiny silver stars for a little dimension. The upper star is also popped up with dimensionals.
 Sometimes things just come together--our newspaper is called Indianapolis Star.That didn't come to mind until I was sitting here doing the post.

Congrats Banners

I love using banners. So the sketch challenge at Freshly Made Sketches just fit the bill. I wanted a retirement card for a man. I used scraps of SU black and white papers and a sentiment from The Angel Company.
The zig-zag on the Cherry Cobbler banner was cut from another SU scrap. I only used 3 banners instead of the 5 on the sketch. Those 3 were making me dizzy!!, so I didn't add any more.

I've been absent for awhile in sunny Florida escaping the cold and snow of Indiana. Alas, I had to return home  and boy have we seen a lot of snowflakes. So this card is pretty appropriate right now.
DP is from SU. Snowflake die is Spellbinders.It is hard to see, there is a clear crystal flower in the center of the snowflake. Silver tape from Michael's. The sentiment is done on computer. After die cutting it with a Nesties die, I stamped small snowflakes in SU Pool Party and popped it up with dimensionals.
Here is the inside:
That cutie snowman is from The Angel Company colored with colored pencils. I stamped more small snowflakes inside. And again, did the sentiment on computer.
This is for the challenges at Simon Says and  Cas-ual Fridays.
Also for Tuesday Throwdown of "what Christmas means to me". Although Christmas isn't really about snow, I can say it was a little difficult imagining Christmas in Florida without any snow.
