More Christmas Creations

Hello HO HO !
Well, I had fun making more cards today, last minute of course but I think I just about have enough..... Good thing that Stamp with Us have a Chrissie theme as that gave me an extra nudge to keep the Christmas creating happening. So, I made one card & liked the colours together as an alternative to traditional colours, so I got on a roll & made a couple more! These are the first cards this year that I have made with the Season of Joy set (I made everything with it last year!) & I was reminded of what a lovely combination of stamps it offers....and that made me happy, as opposed to finding that my CDs had been stolen from my car sometime this week, which did not make me happy!! Quite what they are hoping to do with "Children's car travelling favourites" (or some similar jolly title!) a Wiggles CD, "Row Row the boat & other all time children's greats!" among others, is quite beyond me!!! In fact, only a couple taken are ones I will miss, so it's no big deal thank goodness...(Mr 3 is not happy at all about the Wiggles loss tho')...but just don't go into my car without asking!!!
Sorry about that...I feel better now! Moving on....Here's my Stamp with Us challenge card:
And here are the cards together:
Stamps: Season of Joy, Many Merry Messages Ink & card: Baja breeze, pretty in pink, not quite navy other: pink taffeta ribbon, paper piercer, bella rose dsp, scallop edge punch, dazzling diamonds.
Good luck with any last minute stuff!

T'was the week before Christmas....

Here's a quick selection of Chrissie cards that I've been making....still need some more, but I'm not sure that will happen, we'll see!
Anyway these first two cards are based on the Stamp with Us sketch challenge & use the Holiday Line up stamp set and the ski slope dsp (now retired, but great while it lasted!)
This next card is CASED from Sam Post here. She has some fabulous cards and photo tips too! And finally a simple, quick card made using an embossing folder, SU! real red & sahara sand cardstock & the funky red polka dot ribbon out now(!) in the current Summer mini catalogue. Have a fun weekend!
