First thing that happens in January is my daughter, Stephanie's, birthday.  I love making this birthday card because it's not a Christmas card... and because she is my baby!

Although the picture is dark, the snowman is doing a happy dance! How interesting that by just putting the smile and the nose in the air, he is just so cute! I saw this on Pinterest and had to try it using the Cold Play stamp set....  Used the masking for snow mounds with a light blue and ribbon for his scarf. Snow flakes from the punch and a pearl in the center of each... Love this guy! Will use him again... Maybe my niece Julie's card?

A Thank You Card and a Congratulations on Your Retirement both came from this Just Believe set. I used the shadowing technique with the blender tool, and forgot to take a picture of the retirement one! I used the Distress colors of Wild Honey and Faded Jeans then stamped the image with Staz-On. Love the result. Again got the idea on Pinterest although I changed it up a little.
