Fall is coming!

I'm taking a break from Christmas (though I think I might have all the Christmas cards that have to go in the mail done) to bring you a fall inspired card.  I love fall.  It has always been my favorite season.  There is just so much beauty during that time of year!  So when I saw the inspiration at Just Us Girls I wanted to reach for the colors of fall and leave Christmas behind for a bit.

I used the leaves and the fall colors in my card.

I stamped the leaves and then cut the panel down to three strips.  I love the twine bow it's just rustic enough.

Thanks for looking!

Santa Claus is coming to town...

Another day, another challenge, another Christmas card...I am determined to get all my Christmas cards done before I start Halloween.  The Christmas carol/song challenge at Winter Wonderland got me working and when combined with the "for the boys" challenge at Daring Cardmakers I decided to have a little more fun with Santa.

This is the kind of Christmas card DH, his brother, and a few other men I know would get excited about.

I used fake snow and fun flock to add a little texture to the card.  I also used Stardreams cardstock as the base to add a little shimmer to the night.

I hope I made you smile today!

Walking in a Winter Wonderland...

Today I am sharing a Christmas card inspired by the Christmas song as suggested by the challenge at Winter Wonderland.  Walking in a Winter Wonderland is a favorite song around here during the holiday season and the adorable log cabin from Papertrey is perfect to go along with it.

This photo is not the best...a side effect of squeezing in picture taking and living where it's always gray.  But the snow  is glittered up and the the trees have a touch of snow as well.  It makes me want to find a cabin and head to the woods for Christmas.

Thanks for stopping by!
