not yet winter here

It's deep into November and we are still experiencing beautiful weather! After such a bad summer I suppose it's deserved! Usually we would be deep into snow and cold cold weather! Today I have quite a few cards to share. The first two are actually from last week's Hero Arts challenge! I did manage to submit them in time but was way to exhausted to blog about it! Than I put off blogging since my space key and me are not working in harmony! Tonight oh keyboard you meet the bathtub! Unless I figure out how to get the dishwasher to not use hot water...

The first card uses the Grand Snowflake stamp again by HA. I stamped it in versamark and than embossed it with iridescent embossing powder! How much I love this card! The PP is from a Christmas stack by Mind's Eye and it has glitter too!

Products used: Bazill cardstock, My Mind's eye PP, eksuccess punch, grand snowflake HA stamp, Cl343 HA, michaels ribbon, iridescent powder.

The angel card is made with the Let the Angel's Sing stamp set by HA. I love this stamp set. When I saw it in the sneak peaks on the HA blog I wanted it! A few weekends ago my gf was visiting MOA and I was lucky that she picked it up for me! I covered her with two sided tape and than burnished glitter on to her! I also used stickles all over the ribbon and felt snowflake and button!

Products used: Let the Angels Sing HA stamp set, bazill cardstock, snowflake by SU, button by Making Memories, My Minds Eye PP, stickles and stampendous glitter.

I made this card a bit ago, actually I made 10 of them! I picked this stamp set up at my LSS. It's a cute BoBunny one! It was a great idea to tie the silver cord but not so easy, hint to use your tweezers to pull the cord through when tieing the bow!

Products used: Eskimo Kisses PP by Basic Grey, Merry Christmas stamp set by BoBunny, Merry Christmas sentiment by HA343, Stickles, Bazill cardstock.
And my last card to share today is a baby shower invite I made for a friend. She contacted me and ordered 10 for a baby girl shower. I used the Close to my heart set Baby Steps on it. I paper pieced some of the outfits, glittered others and used fun flock to make the cute fuzzy sleeper! Isn't this so cute? (this one is the worst one which I kept due to the buckling..)

Products used: Bazill cardstock, PP by Michaels, Baby Steps by Close to My Heart, Glitter by Doodlebug, Fun flock by stampendous.

Hope all of you have been having a fantastic week! I did want to share that last week I was so blessed to be able to attend a Darlene Zschech and Hillsong concert! It was amazing to be able to worship singing her songs that she has written with her as the leader! What an amazing experience! For those of you who don't know who he is she has written many amazing songs and it is said that on sundays 20 million people sing her songs!
