Brrr...

It is SO cold outside today! Good day to stay in and stamp - once I finish my housecleaning (I will keep chanting that over and over!).

Last week I had a Christmas card class and wanted to share a few more cards we made that day...this card has a really Hero Arts feel to it and I used my Dazzle Versamark pad for the JOY and snowflakes - you can see the sparkle in real life.


Card Materials:
Stamps: Hostess free set (Build-A-Background), Ornamental Snowflakes, Joyful Ornaments
Accessories: TAC Kraft paper, fiskars border punch, MS Snowflake punch, twine, button, Versamark Dazzle, Brilliance White

and this one is featuring my new "favorite" border punch...see how I used the stars that were punched out on the top? To me this has such a european feel. I love those 6 pointed stars!


Card Materials:
Stamps: Vintage Santa, Reindeer Food (last chance to get him this month!)
Accessories: my old organ sheet music, retired TAC sparkle blue paper, ribbon, nestabilites, MS border punch, gold Brilliance ink and embossing powder

I hope you'll be back on Monday for a blog hop I'm participating in - Gift Wrapping! I've got 3 neat projects that I can't wait to share with you...and areminder that my blog candy closes at midnight on the 12th so you still have time to enter!

Have a super weekend!
