Club Scrap Shades of Winter

I'm a little late for the Club Scrap Shades of Winter Blog Hop.  We decided at the last minute to go visit my brother for a few days and I was away from my craft room.  Not to say I didn't have some crafting fun with my Sister-in-law!  But this card has been on my mind since I saw the Jumbo UM branch with the berries.  So here is "Shades of Winter meets Watercolor Christmas."

It's a little sad that the sparkly berries don't show up well in photos.  The blue background paper is sparkly too!  IRL it is gorgeous!  

There's still time to link up on the Club Scrap Shades of Winter Blog Hop.  Check out what the design team did - there are some gorgeous projects on display.

Happy Crafting!

Cards in Envy Celebrate the Season

The new challenge on the Cards in Envy blog is to "Celebrate the Season."  We're looking for Holiday cards (any holiday we celebrate this time of year).  Here's one of my Christmas cards I'll be sending out this year (I sometimes make a few multiples of five but no more than that).

I had one 12 x 12 piece of this great plaid paper left to use as a background.  I decided it would look cute with some punched out trees that are glittered up and a snowy base.  This was a great way to use up scraps of DP for the trees.

Come see what the rest of the design team came up with on the Cards in Envy blog.  Then link up your Holiday cards.

Happy Crafting!

Cards in Envy Wouldn't That be Sweet

Time for another challenge on the Cards in Envy blog.  We are asking for you to create a card that features something sweet such as candies, cookies, cupcakes or maybe a sweet teddy bear, animal, child, etc. In your post tell us what is sweet on your card.

My sweet card today features cherries!  My favorite is cherry pie but I didn't have a stamp for that (LOL).  So I just went with the cherries.

Come on over to the Cards in Envy blog and check out what the other Design Team members made sweet on their card.  Then link up with us for a chance at bragging rights with your card.  Remember no lumpy bumpy cards but any card size/shape is welcome as long as it fits in a standard mailing envelope.  

Happy Crafting!
