It's Shaping Up To Be A Good Christmas!

I have been thinking of making this card since I got my Gypsy in November of last year. I just didn't quite have all of the details worked out. Then I was visiting the blog and said I have the perfect idea for their Christmas Shape card challenge. It has taken me a while to do it but I think it turned out awesome.

Now I was going to add stickles to the windows to look like snow but I didn't want to over do it. You could hang stockings with your family names or the sentiment. I was also thinking of getting a metal sign that said "Oh the weather outside is frightful" and hang it on the window handles to keep it closed. I definitely have though of a number of ways to alter this. I do however believe for my first of this type of card simple is better. I hope everyone enjoys. Happy July!!

Trying to master shapes!!

     These are a few cards I made recently, I love shape cards and have been trying to challenge myself to make them more. I have done the owl before as you will see in my last post. but I am trying to think outside the plain paper box and explore pattern paper more. I have to say i love the owl with the yellow eyes, just gotta find them in glow in the dark! I have the images of the front of the card and the inside part with the sentiment, I just print those from my computer. I used my Gypsy to weld the shapes and have found the + button to make the images on seperate sheets for some cuts, LOVE THAT!! I still have some tweekign to do on my printer allignment but otherwise I like them so far. I hope you enjoy. These are being submitted to the wonderful blog for their anything goes challenge.

The Quotes.
Owl- Can I get a Hoot Hoot and Hope your birthday is a Hoot!
