Skaaaaating Away......

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 $87.00 Dollar Card

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!!

Believe in the Poinsettia

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?

Sing a Song of Christmas

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?
