"A Caroling We'll Go!"

Cricut CardzTV Challenge # 97 is making a card using your favorite song...I love the song
"I'm dreaming of a White Christmas" by Elvis. I made my card all white and I used George and Basic Shape to make my circle and then used a Friskars border punch..I cuttlebug my background with the snowflakes folder and added the song sentiment with a font on my computer..I also added lots of glitter on the large snowflake...
I'm not a big fan of snow but I do like some on Christmas Eve...
Wishing everyone a little bit of a White Christmas!

Say it with "S"

My card for this challenge is a Hat for Santa...I used Paper Doll Dress Up Cartridge.
I also got the idea from one of Mary's video...
I made this card for my sister who lives in Florida and she likes anything with Santa Claus!
I used Martha Stewart very fine glitter red and white...the rubber stamps is one that I bought at Michaels for a dollar and a leftover ribbon with snowflakes from last year...
Thanks for such a fun challenge.
I also entered this card on CardMaker using glitter.

My Style Challenge

My style of cards that I really like to do is Iris Folding...
This is the card that I'm entering in CardzTV first challenge...
I do Iris Folding cause when you finish the folding and flip it over to see the front there is always a WOW factor...
When doing Iris Folding you have to work on the back side of your card...
I've learned to do the Iris Folding a few years back and I'm still amazed at the outcome...
There is a lot of site on the web on how to do this style...
I made this card for a Secret Pal friend when we had to announced who we were. The folding paper that I used is from wallpaper. Usually you have to use a thin paper but I made sure that my crease line were folding very good...
I hope you like looking at my style of card that I like to make...

"Hope Butterfly"

Here is the image that is free from Designed 2 Delight a Butterfly of Hope...
October is Breast Awarness Month so this image is perfect for this special event.
Check it out at
I used Martha Stewart border punch, Cuttlebug Swiss Dots Folder...The sentiment from Friskars and a little rhinstones (cause my paper tore a little bit in the corner)I colored the butterfly with Mark It markers...
For some reason the scanner made the card look purple but it is hot pink.
Have a good day!
