Starry skies

This cute snowman comes from Bugaboo digital stamps - isn't he a cutie?   As you can see, I carried on the star theme with my background paper, as well as my computer-generated verse.   I added faux stitching around my image and sparkly stickles to his star.

Cutest smile

This little Stampendous girl is one of my favorites - such an adorable pose.   It didn't require a whole lot of work to focus on this cutie-pie -- she's colored with prismas/gamsol, then the "smile" was added with a die cut, and the hearts are done with a punch.   This is yet another design that will be sent to Cards for Little Hearts for the January heart drive - check it out, and you may also want to participate!

I give you my heart

Another "heart" card that will be sent off to Cards for Little Hearts January card drive - check out the site for all the details, if you'd like to put some smiles on children's faces!  This adorably sweet bear comes from the DigiStamp Boutique, where you'll find lots more cutie-pies.  I've colored with prisma pencils/gamsol, computer-generated the sentiment, and did some layering - easy and cute.

Spreading joy

This cute balloon bear comes from the Bugaboo store, which I've colored with prismas, adding the sentiment, punched hearts and enamel dots.  I really like this peachy color, being a bit different than the normal.  This is just one of the cards that I'll be sending to the January heart card drive for Cards for Little Hearts - I'm sure Christina would love to have more participants, so just click on the site, and it'll give you all the information needed.

Amazing you

I decided to color up this big hair gal from The Paper Nest Dolls, as I hadn't used her before.  The sentiment is computer generated.  I used a new heart die cut that I received for Christmas from my BFF, Gail, along with the added foam heart -- thanks for the pretty embellishments, my friend!   The two flowered dots at the side are candi-dots.  Thanks so much for coming in to view my creation.

Heart smiles

Apparently, penguins are NOT just for winter themed cards these days, and who could ignore this cutie-patootie that comes from Whimsy Stamps !!    I've colored with prismas, and added stardust stickles to some of the hearts.  The upper corners on this image are a die cut, and I've layered a couple lacy doily hearts behind, matching the background papers.  The row of felt hearts along the bottom is a ribbon roll that my BFF sent me in my wonderful Christmas pack of goodies, along with the heart-shaped pearls at the upper corner -- thanks so much, Gail . . . Oh, and my sentiment was computer generated.
