I needed a thank you card and I wanted to play along with The Alley Way Stamps Challenge so I used their cute cow from Get MOOvin' stamp set and created today's card. To make the image two sided, I first stamped the image, then added a piece of dental floss for it to hang and glued blank cardstock to it. Once the glue was dried, I used a marker to outline the image and then added some patches and attached its tail!

When we think of fairies they are usually tiny and youthful thanks to what we see on television and the movies. But truthfully, fairies are just like humans, they grow and advance in age! Dr. Digi's House of Stamps' delightful Phyllis the Festive Fairy started her career when she was very young and lithe. With time and age she has moved up the ranks to that of Festive Fairy! In a recent interview following her promotion she explained that she still loves her work but her new position requires her only to make visits to sprinkle love, joy and birthday wishes on those over the age of fifty! Have you had a visit from Phyllis? If not, before you know it, you will!

Sometimes the most unusual can turn into wonderful results! For a nontraditional Christmas card I started with PaperTemptress' gorgeous Pop Tone 54# Grape Jelly cardstock combined with a banner made from Heavenly White 100# Extended Archival cardstock, then added pretty snowflakes and a touch of bling, the results are surprising and striking!

I must admit, focusing on Christmas cards during playtime has put me ahead on the cards needed this holiday season! For my card today I used two different dies, Small Deer and Tiny Village that accidentally dropped in my cart while pursuing Ellen Hutson!

Did you hear the news? It seems that there are so many requests for karaoke machines for Christmas, that Karaoke Claus from Dr. Digi's House of Stamps has had his elves working overtime to get all the machines made and Santa sings along to each and every machine to make sure they work perfectly. Santa has done so much singing that he can't talk and we all know how important it is that come Christmas Eve Santa can call out, "On Dasher, on Prancer . . . Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night!" So if you know a sure cure for sore tired throats, call Santa's hotline immediately!
