2nd holiday card for 2016

I am trying to make a few holiday cards each month so that I can supply 3 charities with them at the end of November.  This cute kitty is from Lettering Delights.  I opened it in Silhouette Studio, traced the image, did a offset then printed and cut it out.  Saying was cut out with Spellbinders die.  This is for the children's charity.

Teddy Bear Valentines

Here's two of the Valentine's Day cards I made for the children's charity.  I cut them out with my Silhouette Cameo using a cut file I found at the Silhouette store.  I am looking for ways to use up the big package of kraft card stock I bought last year when it was on sale for $2 at Michaels.  Still have 2/3 of the package left.  Will probably make more critters like these as the little kids seem to like those best.

1st Christmas Card Of 2016

Here's my first Christmas card for this year.  Yes, I know it's really early to be working on them, but I realized today that I have promised to send cards to 3 different charities instead of just the childrens charity.  I plan to make a few cards each month so that I will have enough to send a package to all of the charities at the end of November. 

 I created my card with this cute snowman friends digi image I found at the Bugaboo store.  Colored them with Copics.  Printed the saying and cut out with Spellbinders die.  Snowflake paper and ribbon from my stash.  Punched out 2 layers of snowflakes with EK punch.  Added some silver metallic glitter to the snowflake centers.

Just A Note

While putting things away in my craft area, I found a file folder with some images I printed out a long time ago from the House Mouse Triple CD.  Made this quick CAS style card to send in this month's box to the Cards For Hospitalized Kids Charity.  These little house mouses always make me smile and I hope the kids will too.

Doggie Valentine

 Love this cute puppy.  I cut out all the pieces with my Cameo using cut file #37325 (that I altered a bit to make the card)  
The cut file is from the Silhouette store.
