Frosty and Fabulous!

I simply fell in love with this snow-woman image from MFT - especially with the "frosty and fabulous" saying!  I just think this is the perfect card to send to a girlfriend!  The image is stamped with Memento ink and colored with Copic markers.  I used the "faux tarnished silver" technique to create the snowflakes.  The dies are the Tim Holtz "movers and shapers" snowflake die cut out of chipboard.  They are attached with Ranger Glossy Accents.

This is another simple card that you can make quickly and really put a smile on someone's face!

Retirement Wishes...

Retirement cards are one of those tricky things - I never know quite what to use for retirement cards for guys.  So, I went to Snoopy - he's timeless and we all love him.  He's colored with Copic markers and layered to some fun striped designer paper.  I cheated on the words because I could not find the retirement stamp I know I have *somewhere*.  I used some Candi embellishments - I like the way the gray shades go with the car theme.  Those embellishments are fun and a great bargain - you get a lot in a bag.  And they are not mangled by the postal service!

This is a pretty simple design - made up quickly.
