Another Christmas card made using the Songbird cartridge.

Hello, friends!!

I am so excited! I have finished my Christmas shopping, I am done with school until next month, and I have all of my Hello Thursday projects done PLUS lots of extra projects made! This means that I can relax a little bit this week since my son is out of school next week. I read an entire book today( a really funny Chelsea Handler book) and just might read another one today! Not too mention today is Papertrey Ink's new release day! It just doesn't get much better for me! I am in such a good mood!

Ok, I loved making the card I posted yesterday so much that I made another that is exactly the same just with a different color scheme. I never do this, but I thought it would be fun. Songbird is such a great cartridge!

the paper is Bo Bunny
I cut the shape at 2 1/4".

I will see all of you cool cats here tomorrow! I will post my projects as soon as I get the greenlight from PC! I just cannot wait!

Have a wonderful Wednesday!

I'm glad you are having such a wonderful day. It's always nice when everything falls into place. This card is just as beautiful as the last. Thank you for sharing.

I always seem to make my cards so difficult and time consuming I get frustrated. This is the way to go and they are so gorgeous. You are awesome as an elf for Santa. Thank you.

Love the colors on this one. Your doodling and coloring take the card from pretty to sensational. Enjoy your week; glad you have a little reprieve.

I can't wait for Hello Thursday! :)

Donna said...

Even though it is the same as yesterday, it looks different because of the colors! I love that when I make two or more of the same kind of cards - color can make all the difference! I love the yellow behind the "O".
Many blessings, Donna

I don't think I would've recognized that this was the same card as yesterday if you hadn't told us...the different colors make it look totally different. I do love that stamp! Enjoy your break!

Love the shading. It really sets off the sentiment

jamme said...

And look how the ribbon goes perfectly with the card and all the little dashes on the card goes with the ribbon. Nice.

Betty Jo from Michigan said...

Simple but elegant and great colors, too! Since I don't have that cartridge I will have to search my cartridges to find something similar.

Question for all,,,,,,,, what adhesive do you use? I came across this one and was wondering if it was a good tape to use. OMC Green Glue Glider PRO. Anyone ever use it? It is similar to the ATG Gun but cheaper but sometimes cheaper isn't better.

Kel said...

Great card. I love the softness of it.

BikerGranny said...

Very pretty card, and the "glow" effect you created with the ink is perfect! I also love the colors and papers - simply beautiful.

Kim. said...

Very pretty card, love the colour scheme and the 'glow' really is effective.
