Sweet birthday wishes...

My sister-in-law had a birthday in late December (happy birthday, Paula!), so while I was making some last minute Christmas cards, I also made her a card.

I had just a small piece of the cherry-patterned paper left and wanted to use it. I really LOVE this paper. I made this card very similar to the cards I shared in this post.

The cherries were again cut from my Preserves cartridge and the doily was made with a Prima die.

I used some sparkly self-adhesive letters for the word "Sweet." The rest of the sentiment was heat-embossed onto a scrap of the alternate side of the DSP.

On the inside of the card, I used the piece that was the cut-away on the end of the sheet of cardstock. I'm not sure what you call this half-inch strip, but many 12" X 12" papers have them, and they are often a coordinating pattern, as was this one.

With just the tiniest pieces of the DSP left, I still couldn't bear to throw them out, so I made a little coordinating tag.

I noticed that my tag die didn't cut the cardstock as straight as I would have liked, but I finished the tag anyway. The border across the bottom was made with a Fiskars punch.

I also cut a small doily, snipped a couple leaves from one of my foliage die-cuts and added two melted pony beads for the cherries.

I didn't actually use this tag, but will hang onto it to remind me to look for some more cherry-patterned papers!

We finally had some snow in Minneapolis last night - about 6 inches where I live. That's just enough to cover the ground and make everything look clean and fresh again. It didn't snow so much that it's hard to shovel, thank goodness.

I hope you are safe and warm, wherever you are, and enjoying some crisp winter weather of your own.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and remember to laugh--a little or a lot--every day.
