It looks a Latte Like Christmas

This card was inspired by a card made by Sharna Waksmulski for the Craft Christmas Collaboration Challenge for March (visit for details) I made my card with this sweet Lawn Fawn image. The sentiment is a free digi from tlcCreations(You can download a free copy here

Here is Sharna's card that inspired me-

The current Power Poppy Challenge is entitled 12 Days of Christmas. The project for Day 8 is a "Cookie Envelope."  I immediately knew that I would use one of my favorite Tiddly Inks images and sentiment from the digi set "Tiddly Cookie Bug." (the set is currently only $1.50. Find it here  I gave the image a Christmas feeling by adding a Santa cap with a bit of real (fake) fur!

My second entry into the current challenge at Art Impressions is a Tri-fold Shutter Card that features one of my favorite AI images named Maude. Since she just oozes snarkiness, I had fun pairing her with a sentiment that is a freebie from Kelli Winnell's blog. She offers a wonderful free sentiment every Friday! (
I printed the sentiments on the middle and back panel on my computer. And the birthday cake is Bugaboo's "Dollar digi cake."

Since I had the Hero Arts "Reef Border and Frame Fancy Die" out for a recent card, I made another card with it, this time paired with the Hero Arts Goldfish clear stamp. Printed the sentiment off on my computer, hand drew a banner, layered it, and then popped it up with foam mounting tape. Fussy cut the shells from scrapbook paper, adhered several then popped the front two with foam tape to add a bit more depth.
