Hmmm...I'm not sure that I have a favorite. Do you? 
They were all colored with Copic markers.
The first card uses very primary colors. (PP by Sunborn)
In the second card, the green is muted, as if it were aged. (PP by K and Co and the rub-on border is by American Crafts))
The third card is bright with a yellow hue to it. (PP from stash. Green from Michael's. Rick Rack from my stash)

December Calendar Layout with Us by the parent's tree

I post a calendar layout every Wednesday. They are from all different years but I post the same month that we are in. Come back to see what January looks like

This layout is from my brother's 2019 calendar.
The background paper is by Scenic Route. The cardstock in the center has been inked. The center embellishment/border is something I cut out of a patterned paper by MME. Flowers are by Prima and Oriental Trading Co. The brad is by Making Memories. I can't think of who made the little title but as I go through my things I will find out and add it to the post. 
Thanks for looking.

Upcycled Photo Frame Christmas cards

I decided to upcycle the photo frames that people send out with their kid's pictures. The frames aren't used anymore because people can go online and plug their pictures into the different layouts and TADA!! their photo Christmas card is finished. They even get envelopes.
Some 
online services; Shutterfly, Walmart, Walgreens-I've heard that their quality is better than you would expect. 

The trio of trees stamp is by Denami Designs Circa 1998. It was from the lady that went into the nursing home and I received all of her Christmas stamps and stuff. Well, she heat-embossed the tree in gold on vellum and added some glitter to it. I colored the green on the back of the vellum with green Copic Markers. To give the trees a little color.
Thanks for looking.

'Tis The Season Banner card

The background is a Stampin Up stamping wheel the same color as cardstock. The sentiment is a Cricut cut and inked. The banner is a punch from Stampin Up that I was able to match with a Hero Arts pennant stamp set. The trees were a Cricut cut. I sewed the top of the banner with my Husqvarna sewing machine.

Christmas cards that I wasn’t able to post in Dec 2020

I really like these two cards but I wasn’t able to get a very good picture of them. The wording seasons greetings is a large probably would be best for a slimline card and so I had to get creative on how to make it work for my 4x5.5 size cards.



I really like this blue card because of the eyelets and the gold string by Martha Stewart. They really give it a different look than what we would normally see him and I think that I will be doing that again. 


The next card, the dove stamp is by Deep Red stamps 
I have it stamped onto cardstock by Forever in Time. Then I used a die I bought on eBay to cut out the dove and cut the next size up in brown cardstock. The patterned paper by Bo Bunny.


These sentiments came off the following store-bought cards,




These are the stickers that I used and they are very old.

Upcycled Christmas Cards

I used store-bought cards on all of the cards in today's post. With this wreath card, I used Craft Smith patterned paper behind the image.



The ornament image in this card below is from a store-bought card. The word peace is a die-cut by Clearly Besotted. The ampere symbol is a sticker by Tim Holtz and the word love is a sticker as well.

Then these last two use old paper by Die Cuts with a View, gold paper by Creative Memories, and a sentiment generated by a computer.

Thanks for looking.
