Christmas Critters

One of the things I love about card making is finding just the right images to use for the card recipients. Here are some Christmas cards I made recently using images I think the recipients will love.

This card is for my daughter's second-grade teacher. This soft-spoken, wonderful lady is so sweet and so dedicated to her job. She has two pet bunnies at home, so I made her this soft, sweet bunny card.

Stamps - Stampin' Up! - Forest Friends (bunny)
Cricut cartridge - Winter Woodland (tree)
Patterned paper - Stampin' Up!
Cardstock - Gina K. Designs - Pure Luxury Cardstock (white); Bazzill (blue-green); Core'dinations (brown)
Accessories - glitter glue - Stickles (Stardust); adhesive half pearl - unknown

Here's a card for my best friend who loves her black lab. The image is from Mo's Digital Pencil. Maureen Manning is an amazing illustrator, and her whimsical images are pure joy to color!

Digistamp - Mo's Digital Pencil - Christmas Lab
Stamp - Papertrey Ink - Mixed Messages
Ink - Versafine black
Cardstock - Gina K Designs - Pure Luxury Cardstock (white); K&Company - Fresh Paint (red)
Patterned Paper - Provocraft
Markers - Copic Sketch

This next card is for my boss and her family. I'm always on the lookout for images that play on the name of our company, and this squirrel image from Mo's Digital Pencil is too sweet to resist.
