RIC#49 + Muse#47

Even though my poor little blog has been neglected this week, trust me, I am crafting up a storm. Most of what I have been working on is for our Christmas cards (which are almost all in the mail - yeah!) and not for any specific challenges.

I had to take a little break in the holiday madness to make a couple of birthday cards for my baby boy who turns 15 tomorrow. This card was inspired by the colors from RIC#49 and the die cut sentiment on the current Muse card from Therese Calvird.

The sentiment panel is popped up with foam adhesive, but looks a little flat in the photo.

These are a few of our Christmas cards - I really wanted to use some of the pretty holiday papers I have collected. The flags are mostly hand cut because it is so much faster than die cutting when working in bulk like this. The photo of these first two didn't make it out of the camera in time for last week's Merry Monday chalkboard challenge.

These cards are a modification of one I did last week for the Modern Whimsey MIM challenge. I didn't have the time or energy to make the banner, but love the extra dimension from the embossed panel.

Once we make it through this weekend, the worst of the preparation and holiday parties will be done for us and we can relax and enjoy the season a bit more. Hope you are having a great December!
