Simple Christmas

Good morning friends, Stephanie here with a simple Christmas card for you.  I LOVE simple especially when it comes to Christmas and you have to mass produce cards.  I love this great embossing folder by Couture creations, I paired it with some background paper by Authentique , added some crystals and a ribbon and just like that you have a great clean and simple Christmas card.

National Nut Day!

It's humor me Wednesday at Catch-The-Bug and Today is National Nut Day so I just had to make a card using this Squirrel image.  My hubby and I fight the squirrels everyday at the bird feeders (we have been winning lately) so I just thought this would be a great VD card or even an anniversary card that would be sure to make him laugh.  I colored with copics and the paper is from K & Co.
