Christmas Cards with Photos

My friend Fiona always gives photos of the children to her family at Christmas time so she asked me to design some Christmas cards using photos - here is what I came up with.  The photos aren't that great (don't know what I was expecting - it was after preschool one day, it was so bright and sunny, I think I only had one chance at each photo!! but they are my babies and they are cute nevertheless).

Upsy Daisy Christmas

I am usually quite traditional when it comes to Christmas Cards I love the red/green combo and trees, decorations and such generally feature heavily in my Christmas Cards.  I didn't have Christmas in mind at all when I started this card but once the glitter was added I just had to add a red bow and Christmas greeting not my usual style but I am LOVING it.  What do you think?  Are you a traditionalist or an experiementer?

Ink: Sahara Sand, Old Olive, Versamark
Paper: Sahara Sand, Old Olive
Accessories: Real Red 5/8" Grosgrain Ribbon, Fine Supernova Glitter, Heat n Stick Powder, Large Oval Punch

Punch Art Lion

When my four year old told me she wanted a lion cake for her birthday a theme was born.  This is the first time she has ever been more specific than wanting cake or a present for her birthday!!

Inspired by various punch art I have seen around I came up with this for the invitations:

I think he's cute!!
