Dora the Explorer

Happy Tuesday! The week is really moving slowly. At work, our department adopted a family for Christmas. The family has twin three year olds: one girl and one boy. I volunteered to make them Christmas cards to go with the presents that we bought. The girl's favorite is Dora the Explorer. So that's what I used to make the card.

I found some free clip art on the web to use. I used the sketch from the Outlawz sketch challenge. I embossed the sentiment with gold embossing powder and then lined the sentiment with gold Stickles. I added the pink gems since Dora wears pink so much. Pretty easy! I am entering these challenges:

Tomoorw I'll show you the card I made the little boy. I was thrilled the way both the cards came out and my co-workers were impressed too.
So how's your weather? Yikes but winter has struck early around here. We had the foot of snow last weekend. Monday morning school was cancelled because of an ice storm. This morning they had a two hour delay because of the several inches of additional snow we had over night. Tomorrow is supposed to be very cold and I wouldn't doubt that we don;t have another school delay. And we have yet another storm headed our way on Friday. I think I am going to be tired of winter before Christmas gets here. Oh well. Hope you weather is better. Thanks for stopping by. Stay warm out there!

this is just too cute. I remember when jade loved dora! now... it's monster high or whatever you call it LOL.

yep. extreme cold. in the teens and well below 0 at night. even puppy wants to stay in! more snow expected too. I love the look but other than that.... I wish it would stay just long enough for a picture and then melt in a heartbeat. I know, dreamer, right? LOL.

again, stay warm and stay safe!

hugs :)

Thanks for coming by my blog, Donna. I've not be doing much with the blog lately but want to try to post at least once a week. I've been looking over your cards for the past several weeks -- lovely! Your son has good taste when it comes to picking out stamps (the hummingbird).
