Christmas Card Fun

 This card was so much fun to create for our groomer, Lisa. She has taken very good care of our rescue baby, Reilly, since we adopted him from Second Chance.  He's a black and white Springer Spaniel and this doggy looks like a miniature Reilly. The dog stamp is from Penny Black, I used the Candy Cane DSP from Stampin' Up and Real Red cardstock with a touch of silver. I used my Stampin' Up markers to color the image and Dazzling Diamonds glitter. Merry Christmas sentiment from Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set.
 Another miniature "Reilly" on the inside of the card, makes it fun.
 Every once in awhile you need to take a class just for fun to keep the creativity flowing. This class at our local stamp store was just that, fun and good for creativity. It's a side step card and it sure was a lot of fun to work on. Guaranteed to bring a smile.

 My first love will always be oriental style art. This card is my gift to some of my Oriental Stamp Art friends this year. It has received a host of compliments already. I like being able to mix and match my art supplies together. Stampin' Up's paper, inks and markers give me a quality base for all my card making. I used Real Red, Brushed Silver and Whisper White cardstocks, Real Red marker, and Dazzling Diamonds glitter. The kitty was color with a Copic marker. Stamps from Stampavie and the former Inka Stamps now Scroll Works.

This was my main Christmas card for family this year. I used the Come to Bethlehem stamp set, Night of Navy card stock and ink, Cherry Cobbler ink, the Top Note die cut in Whisper White, and Dazzling Diamonds glitter. All SU except the silver paper.
