Aloha, all! Gift Cards are a great way to give a gift to someone when you don't know specifically what he or she would like for a gift.

I may have to start using my Sizzix for some felt cutting. Hmmmmm. But before I get too distracted with what I PLAN to do, let me show you another card I've made with these little gems. These snowflakes are shown in the … [Read more...] about Felt Flurry Trio I
Like yesterday's Christmas Card, today's uses the Little Felt Flurries from Stampin' Up!'s Holiday Mini Catalog. Today, though, I really added the embellishments big time! For starters, I used the lovely background paper from the Ski Slope Designer Series Paper pack, accented with some Riding Hood Red card stock. On top of that, I layered some Baja Breeze 1" Double-Stitched … [Read more...] about Further Felt Flurry Fun!
With my Thanksgiving cards and decorations all made, I can now turn most of my attention to getting ready for the Christmas Season!
