Ho, Ho, Ho Times Two

It's Friday - so you know what that means!  Yep, it's Fun Friday!  Of course I had to pull out one of those crazy birds for Christmas too.

I found that if I stay off the computer for a few days I can actually get some cards made so that's where I've been and why I've been in and out with commenting and posting.  Trying to catch up but it may take a while.

Ok, back to Fun Friday - this is one RED BIRD!  What else would you expect at Christmas anyway.  Not much shading done but I colored him with Copics, added a 'happy' sentiment, twine, and some candy cane stripe paper.  The 'Ho, Ho, Ho' sentiment is probably older than I am (no way!) and since I already had it out, used it on another card too.



For my second card:  that little Santa is one of the smallest stamps I own!  I've never been able to figure out how exactly to use it but when I saw the challenge at The Crooked Stamper, I knew.  It's a fun challenge and Leslie always has great sketches.  He just seemed to fit on that strip of card stock along with the sentiment.  I added some patterned paper, ribbon, and an embossed panel.  Another card for Christmas completed!

Thanks for stopping by........and have a great weekend.

Way to go on getting some cards made! My mojo is completely gone and I'm struggling just to get my progressive challenge cards made! Your mojo is still alive and well! These are so adorable! Your crazy bird is so fun!

Who doesn't love those Crazy Birds? But that tiny Santa? Sooo cute! I love how you've added the ribbon for the second horizontal element. Thanks for playing my sketch challenge!

Monica said...

Hi Lynn, you are right, if I am off FB I can achieve much too. Lol.

Your card is clean and crisp as is your signature style and I like it.

Hope Jim is faring well.

Take care,

That's the first time I've seen one of those birds in bright red, and he sure is lookin' good! Real "RED-DY" for Christmas and nuttin' but fun! I like the ho ho ho santa too with that great paper and embossing! Have a fabulous weekend!

Shelly Schmidt said...

Delightful cards- love that cute Ho Ho Ho sentiment. The red Crazy bird is awesome and perfect with the striped DP. Great cards!

Darnell J Knauss said...

Well done on both cards, Lynn! I've been trying to think of a way to use my krazy birds for Christmas and I adore this idea! Did you just draw the Santa hat or is there an accessory die pack out there? My stamps and dies are both still NBUS. I badly wanted them, but then when I see so many birds being posted in Blogland there for a while, I sort of didn't want to do my own. You know what I mean? But, boy, I'm loving what you did here!! Hugs, Darnell

Great cards Lynn!! I really love the crazy bird one with the pretty candy cane striped paper!! I keep trying to decide if I want to put those Crazy Birds on my Christmas List or not! You may have just convinced me!

Sassy Raggedy said...

Wonderful cards Lynn...I always have a red and white tree each year and I have that same candy cane paper for my presents. So I am partial to red/white...Great cards. Hugs, joann

Lynn McAuley said...

Two fun holiday designs, Lynn! Love the Christmas Crazy Bird!

NanaConnie said...

Both of these are wonderful, Lynn! That red bird is just so cute. Looks like he can get by without a Santa suit. :-D And, speaking of Santa, great design idea for using that tiny stamp. I love him and your fantastic embossing! Great bow.

Sue said...

Love your crazy bird card!!! those stamps are definitely on my list lol and that little Santa is so cute Lynn..lots of huggles Sue xx

MaryH said...

This red bird is just so adorable in his Santa hat! He made me smile. With the shadows on the stamp, really didn't need to shade with copics, but the coloring is fantastic. Very fun indeed. Also like #2 with the crisp white of the embossing in the center of the pretty festive stripe. The red ribbon bow was perfect icing on the cake! Well Done! TFS &Hugs

Bonnie said...

Love that fun Christmas bird, Lynn! And the Ho, ho, ho, is CAS perfection! I've given up on being caught up on commenting. I'm hoping folks are very forgiving!

Doreen said...

I am so casing your crazy bird card! Love it!!!! So fun and brilliant! That computer can suck all your time away - it is so fun seeing what everyone is doing though!

MiamiKel said...

Both cards are fabulous, Lynn - you are becomming the queen of the crazy birds! Lovely second card as well - nice little guy up in the corner! Sweet!

Margaret said...

Such cute cards. That Angry Bird sure gets around and is perfect for your card. I love the simplicity of the Santa card.

Anne Temple said...

Fabulous cards. That is one RED bird and he looks fantastic in his Santa hat.

Kat W said...

Two fabulous cards with one fabulous sentiment...and totally different from each other! Love 'em both :-)

Big hugs, Kat xx

Nancy in Iowa said...

Love them both! Awesome cards lady!

Deepti said...

Love the use of traditional colors on these cards but I am so drawn towards ur first card :) it's awesome !

lauren bergold said...

ok, BOTH of these are fabbbbbbbulous, obviously, and as for the VERY RED bird... everytime i see a (male) cardinal in the snow i think, "there's no way any bird is THAT RED, srsly?!?!" but... since i've yet to uncover a bird-dying ring in central nj... i concluded that, yes, they are, lol! :)

but the big LIGHTBULB MOMENT for me here is that you've single handedly made me KNOW what to do with all those little stamps i have that i never know what to do with! well... i spose technically you and miss leslie share credit on that one but WOW... i need to go see what i can use this on, lol! ♥♥♥

Liz said...
