Here are my most recent cards.  So trying to find out what kind of style I am drawn too.  I realize I love bright colors.  After reading everyones blogs  realize I need to share the details of how I made these cards.  Please bare with me for I will definitely improve in that area. 
I love the distressed inks by Tim Holtz.  The paper is simple white cardstock. The floral stamp in the center is from Noor Designs Silhouettes Flowers, and the sentiment is from Paper Smooches Scripty sayings.

This was a stamp I had for a little while and it doesn't have the packaging anymore but it's such a pretty stamp.   I was trying my technique of embossing,  and I have to say that it will take some practice. 

This card was for my daughter. .the little girl stamp was from Cc designs-some bunny...too adorable cc design stamps. The paper is just regular cardstock. 

this one was made from the Simon says Stamp collection.

Here are my first crazy birds...stamps are by Tim Holtz...

I used a variety of techniques.  I use tim holtz distressed ink for the birds and the green bird was markers..shading is my challenge....then for the presents most were done using pencils and gel pens.  I shade better using pencils.

I did not glue anything down in progress. ..

February 2016

Here we are in February. I recieved both kits The Paper Pumpkin and the Simon says Stamps kit. 

I realized that I prefer the Simon says Stamp kit once again.   The paper pumpkin had a cute kit....filled with hearts twine mini clothes pins and a cute stamp.  I do love receiving the kits each month and I am a beginner I just want to lmake cardsI just wish it was only cards...

So I made a decision to let it go, the paper pumpkin kit, that is.  I stuck with Simon says Stamps  kit because I love everything in the kits this far...

I was happy with this was hard to keep simple because I find myself wanting to add more and more....but I did not and became happy with my choice. 
The Hello card was created using the SSS kit inserts. I also used the heart from the Paper pumpkin kit.  
This card "Feel the Love" is my favorite card...I love the way it popped.
