Festive Friday - For My Favourite Little...

Happy Friday folks!

I don't think I have ever said folks before, have I? It reminds me of something my prairie-raised grandparents would have said.

Oh, and where the heck did August go?!

As I have mentioned only a lot of times, I am creating up a storm of holiday goodies for our upcoming craft sale... and a few weeks ago I spent a couple of days just powering through cards. I knew that I should probably appeal to the parents out there (being that I know I am easily sucked in to purchasing all kinds of things for my babies!), so I decided to make some cards for the younger crowd.

I created about 8 total, 4 each for boys and girls, swapping out the sentiment accordingly.

I went back to a design I have created a few times, tweaking it slightly each time I have returned to it... sometimes when something works, I just stick with it... why fix what isn't broken, right?

For the girls' card, I used all kinds of pinky shades, lacy trim and the adorable girl gingerbread stamp. It actually went together really quickly, even with stamping my own background.

For the boys' version, I swapped out the pinks for blues and a deeper red shade, and switched the lace for pom poms. I also tied my ribbon in a knot instead of a bow.

So there you have it... something for the people who really bring the magic of the season! Thanks for checking in on me... I am still managing to post in between all the craziness that is my life currently, and I am so glad you're here to visit me when I need ya!
