Cute Card Thursday ~Get a headstart!

Christmas has arrived early at Cute Card Thursday!
The theme this week is 'get a headstart , make a card for Christmas!'
We also have some exciting news, we have 5 new DT members so please pop along there and see all the fabulous inspiration on offer!
My first attempt was a Christmas card but I just didn't like it so I started from scratch with a completely different idea.  I decided to get a head start on making some of my Christmas Gift Bags.  These will be perfect for giving the neighbours delicious Christmas cookies!

This cutie is Magnolia 'kitchen Tilda' from the a little yummy for your tummy collection.  I have coloured her with distress inks.   All the flowers are Prima,  
the papers are Basic Grey, Dasher and Eskimo kisses.

The sentiment stamps are Stampin' Up, I used them on the back of the bag and also on the little tag.

We are sponsored this week by Sunshine and Giggles Stamps so another fabulous prize to be won!

Thank you so much for dropping by, especially if you are still with me, sorry for the numerous pics! 
We have friends from the UK staying with us this week so I am sure I am having a fabulous time (pre-scheduled this) hope you are too! 
Have a great day!

Cute Card Thursday ~ School's Out!

This week on Cute Card  Thursday the theme is
School's Out!
School has been out for a month here so I decided to do a summer birthday card, this is perfect for a friend of my daughter's who loves to come and swim in our pool.

This sweet image is Belle's and Whistles by Elisabeth Bell. 
The pretty paper is My Minds Eye '29th Street'
The fabulous ticket stamp is from Whimsy Stamps designed by Ann Vento aka Raindrop Echo Designs called 'Ticket Stamps' they are so versatile, I love them! 
The leaf punch is by Leone-Em and the flowers and pearls are Prima.  I distressed everything with distress inks 'tea dye' and 'antique linen' including the flowers.  

I saw this quote on a T-shirt somewhere and it has stuck in my mind, love it!
The Saturday challenge this week is 'Water',
One stop Craft Challenge is 'distressing'
I hope everyone celebrating July 4th had an amazing weekend, we certainly did!
