Season's Greetings

Happy Tuesday everyone!  I am having so much fun creating Christmas cards to send to my friends and family this year.  I wanted to do it last year, but...I ran out of time.  This year I am definitely going to make it!!!

Here's a quick little card I put together using my Cuttlebug Birds and Swirls embossing folder.  I colored the birds and berries with a red copic marker and then added Glossy Accents to make 'em shine.  Then I used chalk to highlight the swirls in green.  The sentiment is a Studio G stamp that I heat embossed.  Pretty simple but I think it looks great!

This card is being entered in this week's challenges at the cuttlebug spot.  The challenge is to create a holiday card using your favorite embossing technique.
I am also entering this card into this week's challenge at the Play Date Cafe.  Here's this week's inspiration.

Thanks for stopping by!

Christmas Blessings - SSDS

Happy Saturday everyone!  Have you gotten all of your Christmas decorations up?  I haven't even begun!  My daughter is giving me a hard time about not having them up so I think we will definitely get started today!

It's time for another challenge from Stamp, Scrap, and Doodle.  We have a fabulous sponsor this week... Wil freda Designs.  She has some super cute images in rubber and digital.  She is offering the winner of this week's challenge 2 images of their choice!!! 

This week we want you to scraplift one of the DT members (you can find them listed in my sidebar).  It was so difficult to go to everyone's blog and try to choose just ONE project.  Each and every DT member is so talented and inspiring.   I finally decided to scraplift Regina when I saw this super CAS card.  I really love CAS cards.   
                                                       Here's Regina's card.

 And here's what I came up with.  I changed the theme to Christmas (being it's December and all).  Super easy and I really like the way it turned out.  The sentiment is a Title Sticker from Creative Memories.  The ribbon is American Crafts.
We hope you'll join us this week at SSDS!  Thanks for stopping by!

Scrappy Love,
