Tis The Season

Hello and
Merry Christmas!

of the sketch, I used gently draping
pine branches.

This will be the sign for you:

Navy & White Noel

Christmas lights and decorations, and
Hallmark Christmas movies in the
I love this time of year!

Here was my second option for my CASE

my mind than how it came out. So now
I have an extra Christmas card to
give to it worked out ;)

I proclaim to you good news of 
great joy that will be for all the people"

Swirly Happy Birthday

Hey there! 
Welcome. This card is for:
Sunday Stamps Challenge # 167

 The inspiration picture is yummy and
saturated in lots of warm tones,
and balanced by the cool gray colors.

I've been using this
Swirly Bird set a lot lately.
I liked how the circular shapes
mimicked the shape of the fruit.

I used 5 colors from the photo.
I added the sequins to add the shine
from the fresh fruit.

Thank You Claire!!

Stamps: Swirly Bird, HB Gorgeous 
Paper: Smokey Slate, Basic Gray,

Good Morning!

This card is for:
Sunday Stamps Challenge # 166  

Loved the sketch and wanted to
join in on the fun! I thought of
this stamp set when I saw the sketch.
It's from a Paper Pumpkin kit.
I almost ALWAYS forget about
the cute and kit only stamp sets
that come monthly ;)

This is a pretty clean and simple
design for me. I wouldn't say CAS is my
style so when I do one I think comes
out ok, I'm a little surprised :0

Thank You Lisa!

A son will be given to us,
