Christmas Card Challenge - Music

This week's challenge at Christmas Card Challenges is "Music". I hope this fits the bill... there is a song about that! This is a great card design that I've cased off of Pinterest. It's so versatile and with my Paper Temptress papers, very elegant, too. For the base I used White Felt Grandee and the clear acetate is Double Thick Crystal Clear (a great weight for cardmaking). A little tip for this card...make sure if you put a sentiment on the inside it's up high enough to not show through the clear strip!! Hope you'll come play & sing along with us at CCC this week.

A Paisley Christmas

Paisley is NOT my thing... I couldn't find any paisley Christmas-y paper at all in my stash. But I did happen across this great stamp from Stampin Up! that fits the bill for this week's Christmas Card Challenge!

Life has been crazy busy here for me since September... My new business is keeping me going 24/7 and I'm just not finding the time to craft like I used to :( I miss it. Thank goodness for the few teams I am still on or I would probably just stop all together! We all need something to destress, right? Hopefully I'll find more time soon...but at least I have a bunch of Christmas Cards ready to go for this year!

Christmas Card Challenge & Paper Temptress

It's sketch week at Christmas Card Challenges...but please... you don't have to do it red & green like I did LOL... I swear I didn't plan it that way! This cute image is from Bugaboo Stamps... I love Jodie's images but I don't seem to use them very often. This one was already printed and waiting to go. My papers are Paper Temptress: Pop Tones Wild Cherry, Mica/Metallic Fairway, and Heavenly White.

PMS February Blog Hop

Welcome to my stop on the Paper Makeup Stamps February blog hop! Are you feelin' the LOVE yet? You likely just arrived from Randee's blog, but if you didn't, please head on over to the PMS blog and enjoy all the stops on the hop today! I haven't been doing a LOT of cardmaking lately. I'm so busy getting my business up and running that cardmaking has taken a back-back-back seat. So, I find myself making CAS cards a lot more than I used to. This one was inspired by something I saw on Pinterest and I quite like how it turned out, I think. 

Did you know that PMS still has lots of rubber stamps left? Katie decided to go all digi a while back and she's clearing out the rubber an AMAZING 75% off! Both of my stamps today are good ol' fashioned rubber, and Kiss & Makeup is still available in rubber... this one you want in rubber because those lips are fab-u-lous embossed!

Ok... I'll let you head on over to Jackie's blog now. Love you :)

For today's challenge at Christmas Card Challenges I used some branch stamps from Heartfelt Creations to make my main panel. I added the sentiment on vellum so it wouldn't cut the panel off. I really like how this one turned out...I haven't been saying that lately! This could be a know...the one you make a bunch of at the last minute LOL.
