Peace on Earth


The Paper Craft Crew has a fun new sketch available, so and I combined Verve's Peace on Earth with some glittery stars cut with Paper Smooches Stars die.  The die is lots of fun in that some of the stars nest.  I pulled the end of the banner die through a layer of the star.  (It looks much better in real life than the photo shows.  I am always challenged with photos of sparkly things.)  I also decided to play along at The Challenge which calls for black, white, and a color of choice.      (I'll probably be back to make a black, white, and pink card, too)

Bugaboo Christmas in July




















Please take a minute to visit Christina Hor's blog to read all about The Cards for Little Hearts drive.  You will be delighted to see Christina's wonderful work and to learn about how she collects winter cards to encourage children hospitalized for congenital heart difficulties.

The Bugaboo Christmas in July Challenge has kept my Cards for Little Hearts inspired:  Today's challenge is to use the colors shown in the inspiration photo.  (I'd really love to have a girly pink tree, but that wouldn't be acceptable to the wonderful guys in my family.  :)

Bugaboo Christmas in July: Photo Inspiration






The Bugaboo Christmas in July Challenge is working well with my desire to create a variety of cards for Christina Hor's drive to collect winter greetings for children hospitalized due to heart problems.  You can read all about it on Christina's blog.

I was inspired by the bright colors of Santa's golf umbrella and used a Bugaboo tag as the central element, masking off the "to" and "from" in Word.  The sentiment is by Hannelie Besler.  Hope the bright colors and the smiling snowman will brighten a child's day.

Bugaboo Christmas in July: Bingo


My "Bugaboo Bingo" is a diagonal constisting of  pink, white, and gold; a Bugaboo image; and snowflake embossing.  I intended to add a gold layer or banner, but the gold and white washi tape frame was lying in my scrap bowl, and I decided it was a cute way to set off the image.  Unfortunately, there is a lot of glare in the photo.

Thanks for taking a look,
Christine
