Freshly Made Sketches 163 & Merry Monday Bells

Here's my card for the Freshly Made Sketch 163 and my second card for Merry Monday 135, Christmas Bells. I've used the same mix of papers as my last card plus a Verve snowflake stamp, sentiment stamp & ribbon. I purchased the bells to go on my other Merry Monday card but thought it was overkill with the bell border die so I've added some to this card. I'm sure you'll be seeing them on other cards too, I have a whole package to use up:) Thanks for looking!

Mojo Monday 372 & Merry Monday 135 , Bells!

 Here's my Merry Monday card for the week, create a card using Christmas bells,  using the current Mojo Monday 372 sketch. I've used a new to me jingle bells border die and some sentiments from a Verve set, I think the stamp set is called Merry & Bright. I've added a little stickles to the bells, don't think it shows very well. Thanks for looking!

Viva la Verve November Week 2

Here's my card for Verve's Viva La Verve November Week 2 sketch. I've used the Verve Peaceful Medallions set plus a sentiment from another Verve set. I've noticed the sentiments with Peaceful Medallions "Much Peace & Joy to You" will also work on a Christmas card. I'm going to keep that in mind! Thanks for looking!

Here's my second post for today, this time with the Mojo Monday 371 & this week's Paper Players 221 Colour Challenge. I've used Verve stamps & ribbon and another sticker from my Winter Wonderland sticker sheet. I had to sneak a little kraft, gold & silver (ribbon) into the mix with the challenge colours. Thank for looking!

Freshly Made Sketches 162 & Merry Monday 134 Ornaments!

I've used the Freshly Made Sketch 162 together with this week's Merry Monday 134 Challenge, Ornaments! I went looking for an ornament die this week and there were none to be found so I got a sheet of 3D stickers with some really pretty ornaments and snowflakes. The stickers are called Winter Wonderland by Anna Griffin and the sentiment stamp is from Verve. Thanks for looking:)

The Paper Players 219 & Merry Monday 132

 This week I've used the Paper Players #219 sketch for my Merry Monday #132 card , snowflakes, dry embossing and neutral colours. I've used a die called Frosty Flakes plus a Martha Stewart snowflake punch and a Verve sentiment stamp. I didn't have a Christmas embossing folder so I used one with some swirls and swiped a little caramel ink over top.  Thanks for looking!

Freshly Made Sketches 159 & Merry Monday 131 Non Traditional Colours

I've turned the Freshly Made Sketch on its side this week and made this Christmas card for the Freshly Made Sketch 159 challenge and the Merry Monday 131 challenge. The Merry Monday challenge is non traditional colours so I've used some pinks and a multi coloured background paper. The sentiment and snowflake stamps are Verve and the snowman stamp is from a scrapbooking store we used to have here in town. The die cut circle is popped up on foam dots. Thanks for looking!

Freshly Made Sketches 158 & Merry Monday 130 Silent Night

I've used the Freshly Made Sketch 158 for this weeks Merry Monday Challenge, Silent Night. I have snuck a Silent Night sentiment on to my card but the actual challenge is to create a peaceful winter night scene. I am not good at scenes so I started with a snowflake (patterned paper) background and stamped Lovely as a Tree three times in Night of Navy Ink. My sentiment panel uses some Verve stamps and dies plus some stickles at the base of the die cut trees. Thanks for looking!

Mojo Monday 367 & The Paper Players 217

Here's my card for both Mojo Monday 367 and the Paper Players Challenge 217, a colour challenge. My colours are a little off, the green is too light and the honey colour is too dark LOL, but I haven't done the Paper Players Challenge for a couple of weeks and I really wanted to enter. I've used Verve stamps and dies plus some Verve dotty ribbon.  Thanks for looking!

Freshly Made Sketches 157

 For the Freshly Made Sketch 157 I've  used a Verve image that I had on hand, already stamped and hand cut out, which makes for a nice quick card when you're running behind LOL. Also used a couple of Verve sentiments and some Stampin Up circle punches. Loved this sketch. Thank for looking!

Mojo Monday 366 & Verve October Fall Fancy

 Here's my card for this week's Mojo Monday challenge and also for Verve's October 2014 Inspiration challenge, Fall Fancy. I don't have any pumpkin stamps so I focused more on fall colours, leaves and flowers using Verve stamps.  Can't believe its fall already! Thanks for looking!
