5 Card Friday - Month 2

Hi Everbody,

This is the second month of my 5 Card Friday.  These cards are created each month so that I will have a total of 60 cards to distribute in December for the Christmas season.  I was playing around with some KandCompany paper that I had and some stickers from another collection to create this first card.  This card is a stretch from my normal style but it is good for me to venture outside my comfort zone.

For the second card i chose to go ultra simple.  The simpler the better.  I saw the Noel stamp and wanted that to be the focus.

Then I found the digital designs of Meljen. They are so super cute and I knew when I saw them I had to use them!!

Garden of Love Card and Earrings

Hello Everybody,

I just wanted to share a quick card and an adorable pair of earrings for a young woman who is one of the singers in the University of Oregon Gospel Singers choir that Hubs and I are also a part of.  This young woman always wears the cutest stud earring and when I saw the hearts I thought they would be perfect as a pair of earring for her.

But first here's the card that they are displayed on.

Here is an upclose shot of the earrings.

And the inside of the cards.

Below is a video of the card and the earrings that can be viewed on YouTube as well. In the video I mention where the sentiment is from but I totally got that wrong. It is actually from Tiddly Inks and it is a freebie on their website.  So disregard what I say in the video.

Thanks everybody for stopping by today and I will see you all next time.
