Hanging Stocking Card/Envelope #CD00786

This Friday kicks off our holidays with our church Holiday Tea Party.  Each year, I take my ma a little gift.  This year I created a set of Christmas cards/envelopes.  I tied them up with some black raffia as a gift.  
#CD00786 Holiday Sparkle by Visual Designs by Chris - used the stocking
Stamps:  "Merry Christmas" on inside and Rose Bud & Vine Border as the garland
Mini Star Punch
Colored the garland with Copics
Rock Candy Distress Stickles
Cuttlebug Embossing folder
Smidgeon of black ribbon to hang the stocking
Cardstock:  Bazzill
I mounted the stocking onto black cardstock and trimmed around it so the design would show through and also so I could pop dot it.

Halloween mug using Chris Durnan's cutter file

I found these customizable mugs at the Dollar Tree a few weeks ago. As soon as Chris posted it, I loved her ghost border. I knew it would be perfect for these mugs. I cut it with my Cricut and layered it on a piece of Halloween print paper. Best of all, I can remove the ghost liner, store it in a file folder and reuse the mug for another of Chris's great creations. Thanks Chris!

Thanks you're a real peach! card

Oops, I thought I had sent this back the first week of September.  While we were on vacation, my parents' peach crop was ripe.  I like to go help make butter, pie fillings and such, but my ma did all the work on her own this year since I was gone - yet I still reaped the goodies.  *smile*  Anyway, I made her a card as a thank you.  I wanted to use the "peach" theme.  Chris didn't have a peach file, but I found a digial image on and combined it with THANKS from her file #CD00177 Thankful Titles 2.  I love the title files!  I use them over and over.  Since the peaches were digital, I used the file in Photoshop Elements added some text and shadows then printed it out.  Added bling to the peaches, ribbon and a little hand stitching.
