It's been over a year since I made … Continue reading Santa’s Being Naughty!
Hello! Today I'm sharing another one of Ericraft's Christmas digital stamps called Reindeer Laying Down. I made another card using the Sitting Reindeer recently and decided to create this card using the same methods, in essence, turning them into a matching pair. I started this card in the same way as my other card that … Continue reading Another Reindeer On My Carpet!

Hello! For the start of another Creative Fingers Challenge, I wanted to again share a quick way of digitally making cards.
