Merry Christmas and Happy Thanksgiving!


Hello!  I hope you are having a wonderful hump day : )  I have a couple cards to show you today.  The first one I made yesterday for the Color Challenge on SCS to use Basic Gray, Pretty in Pink, and Sage Shadow.  I decided to go with the non-traditional Christmas card.  I just got this set from Verve called Poinsettia Christmas and it's on sale!  Today may be the last day so go check it out!  I stamped the poinsettias 3 times with Basic Gray and colored them in with Copics.  I added some pearls to the center and some ferns that I punched with the Martha Stewart fern punch.  I used Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge for my layout.  I got it in early this week lol : ) 

My next card I made for today's Sketch Challenge on SCS, but I've been trying to upload all day and haven't been able to.  Anybody else having trouble???  I finally inked up my PTI Fall Elegance set and I love it!!!  I stamped the pumpkins each seperately, cut them out, and popped them up over 2 pumpkins that I stamped together.  The dp is PTI Autumn Abundance which I love as well!  This card is CAS so it would be easy to duplicate : )  Thank you so much for stopping by, and check back tomorrow to see what the Divine Divas have to inspire you!

I saw your fall elegance card on SCS. I've yet to use my pumpkins from this set. Maybe I can manage to use them if I do a CASE of your card ;)
