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!

Today's card features one of Just Inklined's newest releases, Gloucester Old Spot! I can't help but giggle when I look at this pig family, especially the one looking right at you! The metal tag says, "know in your heart you are loved".

My sweet friend who lost her fight to ovarian cancer in February would have just celebrated another birthday. Since together we shared countless birthdays I didn't want to let the day go by unnoticed so I made this card to send to her family. It wasn't the same as sending her a birthday card but somehow it gave me a little peace of mind.

I wanted to play along with the TAWS Challenge and I wanted to make a card for Thanksgiving but no turkey stamp! What to do, what to do? So I decided to made my own turkey by combining several stamps sets, Bird Brain, Get Moovin, Snow Much Fun and Jibber Jabber all from The Alley Way Stamps. One thing for sure, he's too skinny to eat!

Hear yeah! Hear yeah! If someone you know is having a birthday why not hire Dr. Digi's House of Stamps' town crier, Mr. Speaker (Birthday), to stand on the corner and shout the news for all to hear? He's willing to travel and he's definitely cheaper than a stripper!

This time of year we are all gearing up to make holiday cards and my card today is an excellent example of cards that can be mass produced. The other option that would make it easier would be to use white ink instead of white embossing. My choice of RC 100# Midnight Blue cardstock from the PaperTemptress offers all the qualities you want for your cards especially its beautiful color.

My card today features the reindeer and one of the sentiments from The Alley Way stamp set, Fa-La-La! I made this card for my youngest glamdaughter who will be nine months old when Santa makes his rounds. I wanted to a make sure she gets a good start on all the things she can do to encourage visits from St. Nicholas besides cookies and milk. Since she has two older sisters, I'm pretty sure she will get plenty of help and further instructions!

Walruses are very social animals and they congregate by the hundreds! When springtime turns to fancy, the males will use his vocal cords to attract and lure females into their lairds but if another male tries to intrude, he gets smacked upside his head with a set of very big ivory tucks! Since the walrus is both vocal and social, Dr. Digi's House of Stamps', sir cuteness, Cuddly Critters Walrus, is a perfect image to use on notecards to keep in touch with friends and family! If by chance you are swimming in the Arctic Ocean and you hear a walrus couple snorting, coughing or bellowing a full blown roar, just keep on swimming, they are engaged in a domestic dispute, probably about who's taking out the trash!

Today's card features playtime with The Alley Way Stamps Snow Much Fun stamp set. It's hard to see from the picture but I used glittery cardstock for the snowman and snowbank. Wish someone would share with me the secret of taking a good picture when sparkle and shine is involved.

Please meet Dr. Digi's House of Stamps' newest addition to the store, The Goon From the Lagoon! Not many people are aware of them since they live underwater but their mission in life is to remove bait from dangling hooks then give a little tug so that the fisherman thinks he's caught a fish and reels in his empty line, thus another whopper is born about the one that got away!
