Whale hello!

Seriously, where does the time go?  I can't believe Christmas is Friday!  Yikes!  
I'm sharing a card from the new Avery Elle Whale Hello set today!
 I must admit that I did draw this set with my children in mind.  Their school mascot is the orca sea wolf - so I know I will get lots of use out of this mini set! 

I used a piece of patterned paper to cover my card from with a die cut banner to ground my sea wolf.  Killer, right?   

I'll be back tomorrow with another whale card. :) 

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

Avery Elle Pixie Dust

Hello hello! 
Today I'm on the Avery Elle blog playing with the new set, Pixie Dust
I know I'm slightly biased since I drew it but eek I love it!  Having two young kids, I just know I'll use this set a lot for birthday parties and when the tooth fairy visits!  The tooth wand just gets me!  

First, since I never seem to have enough birthday cards, I created this sweet card.  I stamped tone-on-tone stars on a Silver Fox card base to create a custom background.  
Next, I created a watercolor background. Super easy and very fun to color. 
Thanks so much for stopping by today!  Have a great day!

Avery Elle Winter 2015 Blog Hop

Wahooo!  It's Avery Elle blog hop day for the Winter 2015 release!  Are you as exited as I am?  Eeep!

Today, I'm playing with the new Hogs and Kisses and coordinating dies as well. 

For my first card, I used the pig - who might be my favorite in this set. 
I love how the grass can be die cut instead of stamped.  I used the Scalloped Banner die to frame him and then mounted the entire thing on a piece of patterned paper from the Avery Elle Neutral Collection 6x6 patterned paper pad

Next, I had to use the cow and surround him with a bunch of chickens.  So punny - I just love it! 

Now to the hop - here's the entire list.  You're next stop is Yainea!
