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.

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. 

Reindeer Kisses Card:

Lawn Fawn: Stitched Hillside Borders Die
Lawn Fawn: Forest Border Die
Sentiment: The Greeting Farm - Sparkling Season 
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).

Sweet 16 Card:
