Outta this world

Taking a break from Christmas Cards. We have a few little friends having birthdays early in the new year and I thought I should get a head start on them.
The robot and banner are from CTMH - Outta This World. I cut the robot and banner out using the Artiste Cricut Cartridge, then stamped with Indian Corn Blue and Honey. YAY for no fussy cutting!!!! Paper pack is CTMH - Stardust (an oldy but a goody) 
I used this sketch from Sketch Frenzy Friday

Christmas Wreath

Braided Ribbon Wreath! Saw a card on Splitcoast on one of the new technique challenges. When I searched You Tube for tutorials I couldn't believe how many popped up. Here's a link to the one I liked, Christina shows us step by step how to create this braid. As you may know I resently reorganized my crafting area. I gathered all my ribbon together and I have three photoboxes full of ribbon. I'm trying my hardest to use some up and I'm happy to say with this project I've finally finished off the Stampin Up Old Olive 1/4" Grosgrain Ribbon I purchased 10 YEARS ago. Also used up some Basic Grey red rhinestones and some dsp from Stampin Up (dated 2006). My new item on this card is the embossing folder, Baby's Breath from Cuttlebug.
