Working ahead! Children’s card # 1&2

I enjoy making interactive cards especially for children they get excited when they see moving parts on a card! Here’s the first one…
I finally had some free time as we had a snow and ice storm and I was bound at home. So while I was canning I decided to do some Stamping!!

 As if the cows aren’t cute enough, how about a walrus! These two sets in the stampin’ up catalog really caught my eye. I don’t usually buy things like this but I did need some new children’s things and they’re just too cute. I’m making up cards for my children’s box as I have a lot that I need to send out. Trying to work ahead! So I downloaded a video that’s very short but I can’t get it to play. The  picture Is a still photo of the card and the fish twirl around! I saw this card on Pinterest and had to try to copy it thanks so much for the inspiration, Tracy from For the Love of Stamping

One more Christmas card!

 After posting yesterday that I had my Christmas cards done, my sister-in-law who is battling cancer called me this morning. Do you have any old Christmas cards that you’ve made that you’re not using this year if she asked? I wasn’t going to send any cards this year but I think maybe I might need a few. Well I did not because I used quite a few of them for myself this year, so I whipped up16 of these this morning before I went over to take her to her two appointments this afternoon. My mother-in-law and sister-in-law both love birds and a cardinal is such a beautiful bird, this is an old set but I know that they will love this card.

Christmas -Gods Peace

I think I’m done making all my Christmas cards! I had quite a few done and realized I needed a few more so I had to get busy again today. There’s so many different ways to use the stamp set to get so many different looks. Here’s a few of them do you have the stamp set, if you do I would love to see what you have done with it! Which one of these do you like the best?

TSOT Challenge 438 Happy Birthday!!!

Happy December!  Has this month found you really busy?  We are always busy this time of year, not only do we have Christmas at the end of the month but in the mix are three birthdays, Dec.6,19,25!! Two of my 4 boys were in December (yes we had a Christmas morning baby-our oldest) and now I have a daughter-in-law also! 
This was  a great sketch I don't think I've ever designed a card like this before with a half circle type design !!  (I'm using a new computer and my courser keeps hopping around!)  Found myself home for a day in Nov. and I've worked ahead to get a few cards done and I'm pleased with this theme as my daughter-in-laws birthday was the 6th of Dec. this is her birthday card she loves purple.  I hope your not to busy and can play along with us.

Colors are Purple Posy, Georgeous Grape, Mossy Meadow a little Pear Pizzazz for leaves only
Stampin up mostly but the stencil is Altenew.

TSOT Challenge 437 Winter Wonder

Winter fun!  This is three of our grandchildern :0) they live beside us and I them often!! I do hope we can take them sledding this year. We have a barn hill that is fun to use, when our boys were small there were times when they could go from the top of the hill to the gate that led into the yard (around 50 yards) or through the gate out to the shed. The weather has to be just right for we drive in that area also. What do you like to do for winter fun?  show us a card it shouldn't be to hard to do.
Thanks for stopping, hope to see your idea of winder wonder.  (I'm working ahead I've a rare day at home!)
