Birthday Wishes

Thanks for coming here to see what my card is for our challenge at One Crazy Stamper is.  Winter/Holiday Theme this month, and I've had fun making all these cards.  My great-niece birthday is November and she always gets winter cards, so I thought I would get a flower theme going, except the stamp image is Two-Turtle Doves and sort of Christmas, but she is so cute, I just had to color her up and make this card for Aubrie!  I am sure she loved the card, and the flowers and colors. 
My image is from Whimsy Stamps-Two Turtle Doves that I bought at Lora's Store, and she was so fun to color and cut out.  I used 3D-foam to pop her up on my card.  Added pearls, some ribbon and some leaf/flowers, Spellbinders, and the pattern paper is from My Minds Eye-Indie Chic-Nutmeg. Copic Markers-B02, B04, B05, E71, G94, G99, BV20, BV23, E01, R20, E000, E00, E50, E33, E25, Y18, Y00, T3, T4, RV29, R46, YR21,YR20, YR23, YR24

Don't Get Your Tinsel in a Tangle

Good afternoon friends, wow what a strange day this one turned out to be, I was going shopping, then the weather changed my mind.  Started to snow, then turned to freezing rain, then back to snow, then sunshine and blue sky.  I stayed home and made some Christmas cards, and was safe.  The roads are awful.  We did have a nice afternoon at home though. 
The cards I have been making are the ones I am giving out to my co-workers, and then we have a big family and I make everyone a homemade card, instead of gifts.  I am a wee bit behind, but will get them all done I am sure.
This little bear is so cute, and was fun to color.  Thanks for stopping by and I do hope you are having a nice weekend.  Till next time happy Crafting!
