Retro Christmas

Yay for Wednesday!  I hope you're week is going well.  I'm always so tired by the time Wednesday comes around... I have a long work week too as I have to work on Saturday this weekend.  So, I better find my energy!

This card is for two challenges today:
Sketch challenge over on Splitcoast Stampers
ColourQ challenge to use Wisteria Wonder, Poppy Parade, Pear Pizzazz, Calypso Coral, and Whisper White

I pulled out my Contempo Christmas set for this card.  The colors reminded me of a retro-type Christmas, so I thought this would be the perfect set!  I love the cute Christmas tree that is in this set. 

Thanks for stopping by, I hope you have a wonderful day!

Up Up & Away for your Birthday!

Hello!  Happy Tuesday!  I made myself time to stamp today, but I don't have too much time to write about my card. 

This is for several challenges:
Splitcoast Stampers Color Challenge to use Pumpkin Pie, Tempting Turquoise, & Old Olive
Tuesday Morning Sketches

I used the new stamp set, Up, Up & Away.  I looove this set!  It's so cute!

I wish I had more time to elaborate, but thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

Clean & Simple Christmas

Whew... I am finally back!  It's been a whirlwind month, but I am finally getting settled into my regular schedule.  I have today off and was determined to make something!  I decided to get back in the groove with a clean & simple Christmas card.  Let's face it, Christmas will be here before we know it!

I am participating in a craft fair on October 1st, so I decided I needed some more Christmas cards to sell. 

I haven't gotten my new order of SU! stuff, so I had to use some from previous years.  This particular card uses Tags 'Til Christmas (#121169) & Season of Joy (#110384).  The embossing folder I used for the Always Artichoke panel is Non-Stampin' Up! but SU! just came out with one that is very similar in the Holiday Mini Catalog, Snow Burst (#124096).

The colors I used on this card are: Cherry Cobbler, Always Artichoke, Very Vanilla, and Crumb Cake.

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a wonderful day!  :)
