Sending ... Happiest of Christmas Eve & Birthday Wishes

Happy , happy 
Christmas Eve everyone ! 
I hope you are enjoying a wonderful , blessed and super happy start to your Christmas ! 

Today we are celebrating lots of wonderful birthdays . I am so very happy and blessed to be part of a super talented group of ladies called the IG Crafty Crew . We love to celebrate each others birthdays and make them extra special ! 

I created two cards for two amazing , sweet and inspiring ladies . 

The first is for Kristin , red is one of the colors she loves and I chose to use that for her card. 
I decided to make it into a shaker card ,lol (any excuse to make a shaker ). 


 Kristin I send you all the best , wonderful and happiest of birthday wishes . I also send you hugs and prayers !!! I hope you begin to feel better my friend !!! 





The second card is for Sandy . I found out she liked copper and rose gold . I tried to use those colors (I LOVE them also ) for the card I created for her . 


 I tried to give her a rosy , coppery hair color (I still need lots of practice ) . I had fun using colors together I normally would not have . 
 I love the simple look of the twine/ribbon image stamp from Mama Elephant and used it on both of my backgrounds . 
I really love the sparkle of the copper embossing powder . 

I hope you join us in celebrating  these wonderful ladies birthdays . If you have an Instagram you can use the hashtag #igcraftycrew to see all of the wonderful cards created . 

Wishing you and your family a Blessed and Beautiful Merry Christmas .

Fun Christmas Tags .....

Happy Happy Tuesday everyone !! 
Almost Christmas ... YAY !!! 
I am so excited ! I LOVE 
spending time with family and celebrating the birth of our Savior !!! 

I wanted to stop by and share a couple of the sets of tags
 I have created ( believe me there are more lol ) . 

This first set I created , I was going for a more elegant look . In my mind I was trying to match my home decor by using the taupe and white along with silver and gold . 




The second set I wanted to have a touch of cuteness along with the elegant theme . I used Lawn Fawn for these . 



 These were all lots of fun to create . As I was making them more ideas would pop in my head ,let's just say my craft room is a glittery, gold tag disaster zone lol ! 

I wish you all a beautiful and Blessed day !!

a polar , grizzly and panda bears . 
As many of you know I have three boys ,

stockings and honey pots . 

Of course you know I had some bows ,
