"Could This Be The Last Christmas/Birthday Card For 2017?"

Happy Friday, friends, followers, family, visitors and viewers.
It's "What's In My Stash" day and what a way to end this year's Christmas cards and Birthday cards for the year.
If any emergencies happen next week, those people will have to shop at a card store or wait until next year for a Christmas card.  I will continue with birthdays and the other  occasions that happens throughout the year.
Friday is my biggest production day in another area that doesn't deal with crafting so I always try to do something quick and fast to share with you.  In my stash I found die cuts from Sizzix "festive greens", a die cut from Sizzix mixed media, and some paper from Hunkydory Christmas:
 A Christmas card using paper from Hunkydory Christmas.  I used the paper to make a tag.  The sentiment was cut from the sheet.  These two pieces were layered with a piece of Recollections red and paper from Our Daily Bread Design Christmas Collection 2017 paper pad.  The embellishment to bring everything together was the poinsettia and greenery from Sizzix festive greens.

 This looks somewhat like a Christmas card via the poinsettias.  However it is that last birthday card for someone whose birthday is so close to Christmas.  I'm combining the two days into one card.  I've used a die cut from Sizzix mixed media and the die cuts from Sizzix festive greens.  The focal layer is Neenah white.  It was adhered to a piece of gold paper from the Hunkydory Christmas paper.  It looks as if it sparkles but it doesn't it is a smooth sheet of paper.

Thanks for viewing with me today.  Go forth and be merry and brighten someone's day.
Hope your weekend is safe and happy.

Sending you a hug and LOVE,

"LOVE IS IN THE AIR"

Hello friends, family, followers, visitors and viewers.
Welcome to Thursday, December 14, 2017.
Are you still working on Christmas cards for this year?  Some of my crafting friends are continuing to do so not necessarily for this year but to get a start on next year's batch.  Their reason behind the process is...all of my supplies are on my desk or around my work space so instead of packing the Christmas supplies up and putting them away...you just keep making Christmas cards.
I have to admit, I have not put my supplies away as of this posting...I thought I would get around to it before the week ended...but I haven't.
I'm jumping two months ahead today with a Valentine's card.  I did manage to get my supplies ready on Tuesday and put them aside.  I had an embossing folder that I caught on sale after Valentine's day last year and  I wanted to use it.
Here is the card I made for your viewing:
There is a company that I ordered some sample paper from called PaperandMore.  I used a sheet of white shimmery cardstock from this company along with the embossing folder.  It came out so pretty and I know you can't tell from this picture.  I also used the pink shimmery cardstock for layering, the band, one of the hearts, and the word "love".
This will be an entry for http://www.wordartwednesday.blogspot.com
