unexpected christmas

It's been a bit since I last posted. I have been hard at work with Christmas cards and tags. And I have been busy with life! I wanted to post earlier this week but my space key was on the fritz, most of the time it wouldn't work, and when it did it worked too much! It was quite frustrating and I wasn't able to comment on other people's work! Today I have a Christmas card to share. It's for the current Hero Arts challenge of unexpected colors in Christmas cards! I made a Christmas card with pink and black! I love that color combo and thought it would be fun to make a Christmas card with those colors!

Products used: Bazill cardstock, black and iridescent embossing powder, Making Memories Sabrina paper, ribbon, scalloped circle mauvy punch, HA Grand Snowflake stamp, versamark, stazon black.

I picked up this new snowflake stamp at Michael's, love it! It's big and bold and stunning! I stamped the snowflake with versamark and than embossed it with iridescent powder. And I also embossed the main snowflake in black. I also wasn't sure on placement for the sentiment so I saved it for last and stamped it with stazon and it stamped really well over the embossing! I love how this card turned out!

I also wanted to share a week late my kids in there costumes! Nothing is cuter than kids all dressed up! I laughed so hard at Carter, he was adorable and I heard many people coo about how cute he was all night!

We borrowed Carter' s costume from some friends, he just fit! I laughed so hard at how it smushed his face!

Ariel was a fairy! Ain't she pretty? She loves her costume and has worn it so much this week around the house!

Carter also just learnt how to walk! Ain't he cute?

And lastly to make you laugh here is Carter the way I found him one morning while Ariel was a preschool. I heard him making funny noises! I had hidden the muffin in haste the day before when guests were on the way over earlier than they were supposed to be!
