Dove of Joy

Happy Friday!  Today's Christmas card share came about by piecing together various odds and ends I had on my desk.  The card base, already stamped with Bella Toile background (Stampin' Up!), sat for months, unused.  The red fancy die cut...same thing. 

Then I spied some red glittered cardstock on my shelves, and an idea was born.  The different reds were married to together with a beautiful dove die cut sticker from K & Co., and a sentiment from Flourishes' Paperwhites

It sure is festive, isn't it? 

Thanks for taking a peek at it during this oh-so-busy holiday season!

I am taking a break until after the 25th, so I will wish you a Merry Christmas now.  Hope you enjoy this blessed season, rejoicing in our Savior's birth, and spending quality time with the ones you love.  :)

Oh tidings of comfort and joy

Welcome!  This may be my favorite of the {few} Christmas cards I made this year.  It made good use of items in a Stampin' Up! scrap bag from my demo:  a fancy embossed oval frame on golden cardstock, and a punched-out sentiment. 

All I did was trim the oval, add a golden bow, some gold sequins and pearls, and pretty poinsettia and holly die cut stickers from K & Co. 

Hope you enjoyed seeing this as much as I did making it!

'Twas the night before Christmas

Hello all!  I am finally getting around to sharing cards that I had made in October, before life became so crazy-busy.  This Christmas creation went to the shop a while back.  Fingers crossed that it sold!

I was in my Mellow Moss phase, having used up a bit of my cardstock stash during the time I made this.  The sentiment-on-a-scroll stamp from Stampabilities was a gift from my friend, Benzi, a few years ago.  Love the vintage vibe of it, and I think it pairs well with the ornament and holly die cuts from K & Co., and the old book page.

Thanks so much for giving me a bit of your time today.  I know extra time is especially precious right now!

Delphiniums in December

Hi.  :)  What can I say?  I love flowers too much to wait until after Christmas to share a card like this.

It's simple, isn't it?  Not too many adornments.  But I love it, because it combines delphiniums, Pretty Pink Posh sequins, and purple.  :-)  Purple is my favorite color from childhood.  I know it's not for everyone.  I've got a good amount of retired purple cardstock that I need to use up.  Bet many of you do, too.

Be blessed, my friends!
