StampinUp had these really cute skaters but unfortunately they were in a set and I wasn't crazy about the other stamps.
Boy was I happy when I saw almost the exact same skaters in Paper Source! I grabbed it and went home and made this card. I am using this "blueprint" quite a bit this season. I am diggin' the red and brown as I tend to stick to blue/teal and brown. George is gonna like this one!

The Paper Source is having a holiday card contest. Soooooooo being the competitive person I am, I had to enter it.
Of course contest rules state you can only use Paper Source products. Soooooooo $87.00 dollars worth of PS stuff I came up with this card.
I think it is a winner. Sooooooo the prize you ask? A $50.00 gift certificate to Paper Source!!

Nothing says Christmas like a house full of poinsettia plants. I love them. I especially like the cream and pink ones. The above card reminds me of those poinsettias.
I tried to think a bit outside the box and went for a green poinsettia. What do you think?
What is your favorite poinsettia- deep dark red, cream, pink or mine- the pink cream mix?

It's time to really start concentrating on the Christmas season and card making. Over the next 20 odd days I will show you a variety of holiday cards.
This card features the Memory Box singing chicks. We are mixing up the classics with the whimsical.
*** new item alert the beads on the chicks hats were made with the new pearl pens by Viva Decor.
On the above card I stamped the music with Momento's London Fog Ink.
The below with black.
I liked the grey background, George liked the black. What do you think?
