A 43 degree day, and a day for Christmas Cards...

Merry and Bright
Dress up a tree was the challenge today at the Saturday Spotlight.
My tree is from Stampin' Up! I tried doing some simple cards today, and really liked the outcome. I usually layer, and layer and layer. I REALLY like this card, and hope you do too.
PEACE
This card was made using a sketch over at Unscripted Sketches.
The Candle is a punch meant for Birthdays, but definitely could be used for Christmas or Halloween, or Thanksgiving, any holidays where we light lots of candles.
The image is from Stampendous' Holiday Cast.
Santa
This card is for Day # 224 at 365 Cards.
The theme was to do some layering with fussy cutting. Santa's outfit is made out of a Tartan paper from Basic Grey's June Bug line.
merry Kissmas
This card has jewels from Bazzill paper
The image and sentiment are from A Muse
The ornament is Basic Grey Figgy Pudding
Joy to the World
A sketch for Basic Grey
The sentiment is Wordsworth, the image is Holly Berry House, all the rest is Basic Grey Eskimo Kisses...
Ho Ho Ho
Our Creative Corner had this sketch today.
The whole shebang is made up of Basic Grey Eskimo Kisses paper and rub-ons.
Shadow Stamping in Bethlehem
Day # 223 at 365 Cards
Use a stamp to make a shadow. I stamped the image, then colored it in a grayish purple color to represent a shadow. I then stamped it again and colored it in "COLOR".
This is "A simple gift" stamp set from Stampin' Up! The sentiment is from Wordsworth.

  18. My gosh, what a great way to spend a chilly day! These are fabulous, chicky, and I can't pick a favorite. I'm looking at them as I'm reading and thinking at each one, oooh, that's my fave...no, that one...no, definitely THAT one. Okay, I do love the peace one with the candles, what a clever idea for repurposing a punch! I love the simpler cards as well. So, no, I cannot pick a favorite, I love them all!
