Calendar Girls' Challenge - CAS Christmas

This year I wanted to create a CAS Christmas card that I could mail using just one postage stamp. It worked out perfectly that our Calendar Girls' challenge this month was to post a Christmas card to our blog. I found this layout on SCS. I changed the designer paper and I used my scalloped border punch instead of ribbon to keep the card flat and mailable.

I used Confetti White and Cherry Cobbler cardstock. I love the designer paper, however, I cannot remember where I got it from. My sentiment is from the SU set "Heard from the Heart" and is stamped in Cherry Cobbler.

Mystery Image Swap

Good afternoon!

Today on my blog is a card I made for a swap I am invovled in on SCS. There is a group of us that swap every other month and the image we receive from that month's hostess is a complete mystery until we open the envelope and see it for ourselves.

The image is from Whippersnappers! Isn't he adorable? His name is Prescott. I had such fun making this card. I love the small pearls that I added to the snowflakes...you just have to have some of those. I used Black, White, Marina Mist and Rose Red cardstock. I colored Prescott with my Copic Markers; used my MS icicle punch on the Marina Mist CS and added the Marina Mist ribbon. The DP is "Snow Much Fun" by Three Bugs in a Rug.

Thanks for stopping by. Happy Thanksgiving.

What Not to Wear Duel

Hello friends!

This month's Duel theme was..."WHAT NOT TO WEAR to this year's holiday party." 

Our hostess, Jeanette, sent us a kit that was "full of papers and embellishments that at first glance look atrocious."  The image had to include clothing in some way.  So we were to take the atrocious looking kit and make a card and we could alter the kit items to make them appear more compatible. 

There was so much in the kit I could have made four cards...but here are the two that I made.  I hope I met the challenge and made my cards "wearable."

The buttons, brads, designer paper and image are from the kit. I only used some of my own cardstock and colored with my copics.

Please check out the other Dueling Darlings "wearable" cards. See my sidebar for their blogs.
