Warm Winter Wishes

This is the Jan Digi of the Month at From the Heart Stamps. If you make a card with this image you get a free image next month…and they are cute images!! I thought this image would be perfect to use with the colors in the Jan Card Challenge- Color Category so I sent my husband the image and the colors and he colored this in photoshop for me!! I’m so spoiled! Then I couldn’t decide what kind of card I wanted to make with this image. I saw the sketch on the Cardmakers Card Challenge and the ideal of snowflakes came to mind so I went with a Christmas card which is good because my goal is to make 1-3 Christmas cards a month.

I promise that is Berrylicious (pink family) and not a red on there!

Inside: Ten fingers, ten toes and the cutest little girl you have ever seen! Best wishes on the birth of your daughter.

I made this card for a guy at work that is having a baby on Friday. I found out they did the baby room in coral and teal (more bluish teal) so that is what I went with. Sorry the picture doesn’t show the colors great and is tilted….still learning this new camera.

Horsey Holidays

Leave a comment

One of my regular customers has a grandson that loves anything cowboys, rodeo, horses, etc so I try to make him a Christmas card in one of those themes each year. Since she isn’t celebrating with them for a couple weeks I didn’t have to have the cards made till now. So this is what I came up after my husband colored (in Photoshop)  in this retired digi that is no longer available.

Horse Christmas

Inside: Wishing you a Christmas Day filled with everything that makes you smile!

Sorry about the lighting still trying to figure out my new camera!


  1. Jan Card Challenge @ Scrapbook.com – Favorites Category – make a card using a sketch or card that you have saved to favorites. I used Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #139. It doesn’t look exact but I took the ideal of the 3 boxes placed the way they are.

One of my Christmas orders wasn’t celebrating Christmas till January so she let me put her order on hold till after Christmas…which I was very thankful for. One of the request was a Frozen Christmas Card. I bought some paper and embellishments in November because I knew I had some “Frozen” orders coming up and they worked perfectly for this Christmas Card.
