November 2016 Blog Hop Challenge

Happy Thanksgiving! Hope your day is full of thankfulness, and the year ahead is full of blessings!

Today we get to relax and tomorrow we will enjoy this month's blog hop. While we're all finishing up those Christmas cards, we were given a great inspiration photo to keep us going...

Such a fun picture! I loved the polka dot packages, soft grays in the stocking and dresser. And, the white tree, which had me pulling out the wreath and using white embossing on soft stone cardstock.

Wish you could see the sparkle better. Those little hearts are shiny gold! But they never look as good in a photo, right? Looking forward to see what everyone created!

Colored pencils on dark cardstock? Who knew?  My card...

Inspired by Nicole's card...

I made mine for a gall at work, whose sister just broke her ankle!

Thanks for stopping by!

Make It Monday #267: Assembly Line Card-making

So last month, I made the decision to make a watercolored card for my Christmas cards this year...I know, what was I thinking??  But I did think if I could do a little at a time, I could do it!  I just loved the New Botanical Blocks, and purchased the set, and the dies for my project. It really helped to have those, and the assembly line began full tilt! This week's Make it Monday gave me an extra boost to really get it going!  Right now, I have 25 card fronts made!

I have a ways to go, but seeing I usually start my cards around Thanksgiving, I pretty happy.

My final cards have a Blueberry Sky background, but here you can see my "prototype". ;)

Thanks for looking!!

Sparkling Ornaments

I've had more fun with this set! Today I'm sharing one made with a watercolor background and pretty gold glitter embossing!

As always, the picture doesn't do it justice, but it's very glittery!

Have a great weekend!
