This first card is inspired by Vicki Dutcher's card as the Muse #96 and CASology Week 124: Old.
I still have a basket of punches that get used every now and then, including a Family Treasures Holly Leaf punch that was used today, so that is my "old" on this card.
For the Muse challenge, I was inspired by Vicki's colors, the vertical sentiment panel and red polka dot patterned paper. I couldn't resist adding a few red bells even though that means this card is heading to the hand deliver pile.
This second card is one of many I made today with the same design because my family voted it to be our mass produced card for mailing to family and friends. As much as I love making one off designs, we still send so many out every year that I always end up taking a couple of days to mass produce 50 or so cards.
The fun thing about this design has been changing up the color choices and this one is inspired by the Curtain Call December 1: Clearly Christmas Challenge.
The Delicata Silvery Shimmer ink is just as fabulous as their Gold.
It was hard to capture all the shimmer and shine in one photo, but the sentiment has the same glow as the tree.
This card is also being entered in the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge where Simon Says Christmas/Holiday.
Thank you for all the kind comments on my World Card Making Day 2014 Winner Blog Hop post. If you haven't seen it yet, please take a couple of minutes to check it out as I have a terrific giveaway that is open until December 10th!
On a completely different note, if you see Butterscotch Shortbread Wreath Cookies at your local Trader Joe's please walk the other way. I've managed to eat four while writing this blog post and I don't think the 20 foot walk between the couch and kitchen is far enough to work off the calories so now have to go to the gym :)
Thanks for stopping by,
