The current (and almost done...) Festive Friday Challenge is a Santa theme. One Santa stamp. That's it. Turns out, having taken inventory of my little holiday stash, I also have a couple 'one-sies' of a few Christmas images: penguin, candy cane, reindeer, various sentiments. Curiously, they're NBUS. Curiously, I don't recall where or when I bought them but that's fine. They'll be seeing some action this year, especially since I have two advent calendars to make, soon. Very. Back to steering my derailed train of thought to the track at hand...
Card 1: Festive Friday Challenge,
with delightful Lisa's Wanna Sketch #10 as my layout inspiration.
Embossing included too (another find that snowflake-ish folder), so we're off to CAS-ual Fridays Challenge #119.
A simple card..
and, given the snow, and the NBUS discoveries, and the so-many-possibilities sketch, AND, my recent win of a CAS-ual Friday's Funky Square Tag Fri-die (thank you Michele, ever so much! Awesome die. Seriously, totally awesome!), AND Stacey's(Stacey's Stamping Stage) recent 'how to tie a bow" tutorial (thank you ...and I tried, I really, really did!!), AND the Color Showdown #266 palette,
These felted acorns are darling!!
I made a second card. It's heading off once again to Wanna Sketch #10, Color Throwdown #266, and CFC #119. I hope my colors are 'close enough" for those required; if not, just let me know and I'll scuttle away.
Another simple card - and it has a twine bow!!!
The background paper is not as red as it appears...grrr with the lighting, because it really is a
*cherry cobbler* shade (and now I'm craving cherry cobbler, with vanilla ice cream...)
Thanks so much for dropping by; your visit and comments are welcome and appreciated!
