Wreath, Snowflakes and Dots...Always Playing with Paper #20, Addicted to CAS #53~Dots, Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge~Clearly Christmas, Bugaboo’s Second Annual Holiday Chaos

Hi,

Zipping in with a flash post (I know - so uncharacteristic of me!) during my *ahem* break at work to share two cards I made yesterday, inspired by things dotty, blue, green, and sparkly...

Here's card 1. featuring my obviously besotted by CB wreath and a Memory Box (or Poppy Stamps...) 'zig zag knit die...

 
Card 2 is sporting a strip of silver glitter tape, two snowflakes - one in teal foil paper, one in glitter paper - and a dotted Memory Box (or is 'that one' Poppy Stamps?!) Merry...

  I should have figured this one out earlier and made a zillion of them...so pretty in real life

 I'm adding these to the galleries at:

Bugaboo's Second Annual Holiday Chaos ~ Day 1: Sparkle and Shine

  20. I'm totally going into jealousy mode! Not only because you used the Clearly Besotted Wreath one more to GREAT effect, but those dies … oh, those dies. I'm not sure if I should drool more about the color combination on your first card (stunning) or the CAS shinyness on the second card. I'm a sucker for white on white with just a few colorful accents and your cards go straight to my heart … love them both, want to cuddle them and kiss them and … well, you get the idea.

  26. I was just scrolling through some posts I missed and I was completely gobsmacked and paralyzed by your Merry card, Carol! That is, without a doubt, my favorite card of yours and in my Top Ten Christmas Cards of 2014!! We overuse this word, but alas it's the best word: it's gorgeous!! Hugs, Darnell

  27. Your first card uses two things that are in my NBUS stash - and they are wonderful together! And those teal snowflakes are truly wonderful - such delicate and eye-catching die cuts. Love them as a simple accent to the dotted "merry"!
