Christmas Cards!

I'm a little late starting this year, but I am finally getting some Christmas cards made!

Here a couple of quick ones I did the other day. I'm working on a whole stack of stamped and embossed ones right now. I can't wait to share them!

Simple and sweet! I think.....

A card and some news!

Let's start with the news, shall we?!

As you may or may not know, has recently had tryouts for the new upcoming design team term (the current one ends in December). And guess what???? That's right! I'm on it again! I'm so happy they let existing DT members back on again!

And now for the cards.

I made these for the Focus  Group's October challenge which is to make something from Pinterest. (If you don't know what Pinterest is, I suggest you Google it :).

The original card is one I just saw and pinned the other day. You can find it here:

Isn't that simple and lovely?!

I couldn't choose just one stamp for this so I made two.

Love them! Although the girl is looking a wee bit ghostly, don't you think?

A card with style...

I was gifted a super cute stamp from a super cute friend, and knew that it needed to be fussy cut and paper pieced. So I did!

I also made this card for the weekly challenge (#35) at This week's challenge is to make a project that you would give as a gift and use your favorite colour of candy. I've always thought that Echo Park's For the Record reminded me of M&M's and peanut M&M's are my favorite scrapping snack!

I love how this turned out! Lots of little pieces that I cut out and stuck down.

Echo Park Paper's 'For the Record' 6x6 and 12x12 for base
Distress Ink: Barn Door
Sizzix Scalloped Pennant die
Unity Stamp Co: 'doin' it with style' stamp
Webster's Pages: feather flower and pin
Maya Rd: grey pin

An update....

So, how is everyone coming along with the Operation Write Home challenges??? Hopefully you are all doing a lot better than me!

I am sad to say that all I have managed to accomplish is two half done cards. I'm just all carded out I guess. Plus I had the little one's birthday to get ready for. I'm hoping to give it another try and get some made this weekend! I.Will.Do.It!

I did make a layout today though :)

So let's all get some cards made this weekend.

And Happy Thanksgiving to all my Canadian friends!!!!! I can't wait to eat some turkey and pumpkin pie!
