Friday Favorites

Today is Friday Favorites and mine for this week is the Blendabilties. I have been using them a lot this week for my Christmas cards so it just seemed logical to share them with you. I need a few thank you cards for some of the members of our church who have been so generous and given us gifts over the Christmas season so I created this card to give. The Swallowtail Butterfly is great for coloring and I used the Calypso Coral Blendabilites and added a simple sentiment. I will add a thank you to the inside and a short note and the cards will be ready to give. Simple yet nice in this busy time of year. I hope you enjoy and will check out Kim's card too. Thanks! Tonya

December Blog Hop

Time for a little Christmas Blog Hop and today I have a card for you and a Tag with a Twist. It is also a gift card holder for a little extra special gift.

As you hop along, please be sure to comment and show some love on every blog! We are always excited to hear from our followers! You should have just left stop number 7 on the Stylin' Stampin' INKspiration Blog Hop - Donna's Blog Organized Chaos. If so, you are in the right spot. If a link doesn't work or you get off track, you will find the full blog hop lineup below.
My first project is a card that uses the Snowflake Card Thinlits Dies. I used Pool Party Card Stock with Lost Lagoon for the Brrr. The ink colors are the same and I stamped with the Endless Wishes Stamp Set. I added the In Color Sequins, Basic Rhinestones and Frosted Sequins to add a bit more sparkle to this card and if you are by chance the type of person who doesn't always get your Christmas Cards out on time you can send this in January and everyone will be thrilled to get it. 

My second project is this cute tag but it has a bit of a twist in that there is a Gift Card holder on the back. You can hang it on your tree or attach it to a gift for a little extra something. I used the Deco Label and Circle Framelits as well as the Bitty Banner Framelit Set. The Stamp Set is Festival of Trees and the Designer Series Paper is none other than the Motley Monsters. I added a Candy Dots Base Brad and a Basic Rhinestone to add a bit more sparkle. The Gift card Envelope was made with the Envelope Punch Board. I hope you enjoyed today's projects and that you leave a comment or two as you hop along. Thank and have a great day!

Colors are Cherry Cobbler, Lost Lagoon, Basic Black, Stamp Sets are: Hardwood and Perfect Pennants, I used the Banner Framelits and the Trim the Tree Designer Series Paper Stack. Be sure and check out the other designers and if you would like to join our team of designers let us know. We are looking for people to join in the fun. Thanks and have a great day!
