Quick Creations Holiday Hop

Happy Monday!! The days are winding down and we have 10 days to go to find out if landed on the naughty or nice list. Hmmmm..... :) Today we have a fun Holiday hop with blog posts and youtube videos hosted by Noelle, owner of Quick Creations. You'll have a chance to win one of the 3 prizes and get lots of ideas to finish up those holiday cards. 

First a few rules to be eligible for a prize:
*Please join our Facebook group at:
*Please Like the Quick Creations Page on Facebook:
*Follow Us on Pintrest:
*Visit each person's blog along the hop including this one AND Leave a Comment for them on their project!

Ok, so lets get started. My first card features A Random Fan. The cutie I used for my card is called Winter Kisses. She is just super adorable.  When I saw this I knew I needed it because my niece is really into cutesy reindeer. She has had her pet reindeer for 8 years now and he's not to be touched. So every year at this time, she shops around hoping to find her pet a companion.  I decided to create this one a shaker card to give it a slight snow globe effect. I didn't want it to be obvious but just a hint at it.

Sentiment: Crafty Sprouts Discontinued. Pebbles paper. Prismacolor Markers and Pencils.

My second card features a Greeting Farm Dollie character. She is the latest of the Dollie line and is intended for Christmas/Holiday cards but I decided to rebel (lol) and use her for a Birthday card. I just wanted to show you that you don't necessarily have to use your stamps the way they are originally intended for. She works great both ways and I'm certain I can use her for other type of cards as well (just a little altering would be needed).

Winter Greetings

Today it's my day on the Quick Creations blog showcasing some Lawn Fawn goodness. This company is super adorable and i just adore all of their products.  My favorite winter line was the SNOW DAY collection which is shown here. Who can resist those bunnies. I couldn't and because of that I couldn't bring myself to cut up the paper so I decided to create a 5x5 spiral notebook. It will be great for all my notes for the season and afterwards. On the inside I added the little lovey dovey couple as a minor embellishment. All I need left is to add my name, if I so choose to. 

I also decided to create a few winter/christmas cards using my Lawn Fawn scraps and their dies. The girls are from a greeting farm retired set (Miss Anya Scarves) but I have provided alternates below. Today is a gloomy day, getting ready for our big day of rain tomorrow (YAY!) so that means Ill get to "check out" for the next few days. I hope your Thursday is a good one :)

Have fun shopping! Thanks for stopping by.

Don't get me wrong, I love our 80 degree weather year round but its nice to wake up to a soothing sound. Im continuing with my Christmas cards, this makes number 10, I think. This one is using the adorable penguin from Lawn Fawn. He's super easy to color and theres not much to fuss with. The piece of ice was free drawn. Thats it for now, have a happy Wednesday.
