Some Fun Cards Made with Crystal

This weekend my oldest daughter Crystal hung out with me as her husband was getting a diving certification and it was my birthday weekend. We went shopping, ate too much, and made cards together. She is so fun to make cards with - she gives me lots of good advice and helps a lot! Here are some of the cards we made:


We made this for the Featured Stamper Challenge on SCS - we cased THIS lovely card by stampwithKristine. The image is by Cheryl Alger (Sassy Cheryl) and is called Jump, Snowman Jump. You can get the image from Squigglefly or Sassy Cheryl's Store. The paper is from Authenique and the gold balls where purchased at Dollar Tree.


This image is called Just Be Yourself by Cheryl Alger (Sassy Cheryl) and is available at Squigglefly and Sassy Cheryl's store. I am entering this in the Sassy Cheryl's Challenge this week which is Give Thanks. There is also a little time left in the Squigglefly Thankful for you challenge if you are interested in that one - HERE is the link.

The last card I have is this one and we made it with a Tim Holtz bird cage die that Crystal gave me for by birthday:


I am entering it in the Crazy4Challenges challenge CFC210 - Its not all black and white. This was a fun one to make and we patterned it after THIS card shape by one of my blogging buddies, Nic. She comes up with some of the best card shapes! I promise the paper looks grey/black in person and not purple - not sure what happened with the lighting!

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend too! Hugz!

  1. Beautiful cards Nancy! I especially love your first one - the colors are so unusual for a snowman card and that textured piece behind the image is so different. It looks like you had a nice time being creative!

  5. Nancy,
    I just got back on to ask you where you got the beautiful little gold balls - but then I reread your commentary and it says Dollar Tree. We don't have a Dollar Tree - but we do have a Dollar General - I am keeping my fingers crossed that they have the beautiful balls - thanks for sharing the information. Kathy

  9. Happy Birthday Nancy. Looks like you had a creative one. I can imagine the fun you and your daughter had this weekend. I love that jumping snowman. He looks like he is on a serving plate. The background of honeycomb is awesome. I have to agree with you on Nic. She is really talented. Lucky you on the birdcage die. It is awesome too.

  11. You and your daughter make a terrific card making team. That is so nice that you two have that same "crafty" interest. I really like all three cards each one so unique, but I have to say that first snowman card is sticking with me. It is such a precious image and the way you've surrounded him with gold tones, it really is amazingly beautiful. Enjoy your week.

  20. These are all just fabulous but my favorite is the snowman. It's so carefree and fun. I took out all my Christmas Bears and Snowmen today....geez I can hardly move...lol It will take me 3 days straight from morning until night to decorate for Christmas. That is if I can move tomorrow....lol I can definitely tell that Crystal had an influence on the last card because of the colors.....it came out spectacular. Love that bird cage. Wish I was there to play along with you two!!!!
    Bear Hugs,
