Southern Florals and Lip Balm

Hi there! I woke up early (1:30am) today to make some more lip balm gifts.
 I remembered I bought this beautiful Wplus9 Southern Florals set and forgot I had it.
 Oh how I love this flower set and lip balm dies from My Favorite Things!

 As you can see I used many products to create these.

The colors came together so easily with my set of Altenew Crisp Dye Ink Cube sets.
 The fun paper is from Papertrey Ink .

In case you are wondering I am using the BEST lip balm from Primally Pure,
 a company I absolutely love and the deodorant is the best..... all natural.

This is how you open the back so you don't have to mess up the packaging.

Thank you so much for stopping by and thank you for all your comment on my last card! 
You are all so kind and I am grateful for you all!

These are all Holiday gifts

White Blooms for Christmas

Hello! Hope you are all happy and well.

 I have always loved adding layers too my cards and inking. I woke up early today to make this layered Christmas card. I know its not a traditional Christmas card but the sentiment says it all.

I am one of those that purchased Gran's Garden Stamp Set from Papertrey Ink  late, this my first time using it. I wanted to make something white-ish so I used Soft Stone and Fine Linen ink from Papertrey Ink along with Simon Says Stamp's ink : Fog.  October Mini Stamp Set for the sentiment. Hobby Lobby watercolor paper.

Thank you so much for the visit today!

Tag You're It

Jessica Frost-Ballas

Hello again , look at me two in a row!
I have a tag today inspired by the beautiful tag that Jessica created above.
I used these two sets from :Papertrey Ink - Tag Sale: and Quilted: Winter Die

I went ahead and created another tag using the negatives of the first tag. I used glue on the pink tag to adhere the glitter but on the second tag I used a piece of double sided adhesive. The double-sided adhesive works best without the mess and more even coverage of the glitter .

Hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving here in the USA.
We had a wonderful day and I feel truly blessed to have the family and friends that we do. 
That includes YOU my sweet crafty friends!

The Card Concept #81 {Rich Holiday}- There's Still Time!
I know its kinda of a stretch for the card concept, but I did add tiny poinsettias to my city Christmas card . Inspired by the chair with my windows and kraft color.
