Cards for My Daughter's Friends

My daughter needed some cards for a few of her good friends at school so she asked me to make 8 for her. She looked through my stamps and chose Elzybell as the stamp that she wanted and then she sat down and sketched out how she wanted them to look, what colors to use, what designer paper to use and everything.

Needless to say, these are the easiest Christmas cards I had to make all year long! I might have to ask her to help me out with ideas for myself in the future!

Stamps used: Elzybells NA

Ink Used: Adirondack Pitch Black, Copic Sketch Markers, SU! Bashful Blue

Cardstock Used: Papertrey Ink White, SU! Bashful Blue, Pretty in Pink and Winter Brights Simply Scrappin' Kit

Accessories Used: Stardust Glitter Pen, Stickers from SS Kit Unfortunately for me, this isnt the last Christmas project that I have to work on! I still have to make 15 gifts of some kind for the ladies in my office...I am working on making some 2, 5, 7, 10 boxes (if that's what they are called!) or the other boxes with the numbers...2, 5, 7, 8 or something like that, I don't know.

All I do know is that I STINK at measuring and at scoring! I may just be the world's worst measurer and scorer! It's really sad, the amount of perfectly good cardstock I have wasted in the past couple of days trying to fold and score and measure...No, I didnt use scrap paper, I went straight for the SU! cardstock every time and in the trash it went every time! Well, a few are on the computer desk, 1 of which my daughter picked up last night and said "Geesh, you really messed this up, hope you arent giving it to anyone..." She's right.

If I don't blog to you again before Christmas, I want to wish everyone a Merry Christmas ~~ But I might be back before then, who knows??
