Hunkydory Christmas Cards

I got some Hunkydory topper sets to put together as Christmas cards.  They are beautiful. They just pop out and you make a card out of them.  They showed only two samples on the packaging but I got four cards out of one package.  I could probably have gotten more if I wanted to. 

The kit comes with two pattern papers and a sheet of toppers which include images and sentiments.  The paper itself is of chipboard quality.  Very thick, but easy to work with.  Here is a video of the cards up close.  

Let me know what you think.  These are great when you are in a hurry to make a card.

Response to Kimbo Kreations' Baby Card (New Parent) Challenge

Kim at Kimbo Kreations is going to be a brand new grandmother.  Whoo Hoo!!!!  I am so excited for her.  Why?  Because I know what it feels like to be one.  I was a brand new grandma two years ago.  But now I am going to be a grandma again at the end of September.  I am so excited.....again.  So Kim wanted to do a challenge to celebrate the news of her being a new grandmother.  She wants us to do a new baby card for her son and daughter-in-law and also wants us to provide new parent advice if we could. Of course, I had to put in my two cents worth of advice.  LOL  Here is a picture of the card and my advice to the new parents.  I hope it helps.

She also said we could suggest baby names if we wanted to.  I chose not to because there are so many names I like.  My son and his wife have decided on a name for their second son and I really like the name.  However, she kinda wants it to be a double first name type thing which I am not really too fond of.  It's okay but just not something I would want to do.  And I am not sure if I could ever remember to call him both names.  Fortunately those names have initials that go well together so that may eventually become his name.  I don't think she likes that idea but he may decide when he is older that he does like it.  But I will do what they want me to as far as the name goes.  

Here is the video I did to show the card better.  Let me know what you think about it.  Did I give good advice?  I hope so.  Big hugs guys!

Flower Pot Card

I have always wanted to do a card like this but with most projects, it gets put on the back burner.  I have several projects I wanted to do first but I figured I would do it because I needed a birthday card for my dad's wife.  She likes planting flowers, etc., so it was a perfect card to make.  I had a few issues in the process but it I think it turned out okay.  I forgot to take pictures of it before I sent it off but below is the video that will show it better.  Let me know what you think.  Hugs!
