CCMC176 and Inkspirations 96

Friday, November 18, 2011

This week has just flown by!  I can hardly believe it's Friday already and I've barely set foot in my stamp room all week.  Since I've been on vacation I've been so busy cleaning the house, running errands and doing some Christmas shopping that I haven't had time for much else.  But I was determined to get some stamping done so that I don't completely forget how to do it!

I thought the wonderfully CAS card sketch at Create With Connie and Mary was pretty awesome, and I thought it would look good paired with the color challenge at Inkspirations.


I was originally going to make a card using one of the snowmen from Snow Much Fun, but as I was perusing my stamp sets I came across a few neglected ones and thought I'd show them some love.

The poinsettia is from Season of Joy and I tried to jazz up the center with a bit of Dazzling Details, but unfortunately I think it looks like a blurry, blobby mess.  The sentiment is from Perfect Presentation which I cut out and popped up on dimensionals.

Sorry about the helter-skeleter photo.  I'd like to blame it on my new eyeglasses but I'm sure that's not the case!  Thanks for stopping by!

Fabulous use of both challenges!! Love how the blue is the "pop of colour" versus the red I used :) Thanks for joining us at Inkspirations this week.

What a brilliant sketch - I have to join in with this! I love how CAS you kept your card Jen. I was much amused by the Leaning Card of Massachusetts!

This is just lovely, such a clean, elegant design. The colours really pop by using the Kraft as your background. This would be fabulous to reproduce a few times, a perfect Christmas card. Thanks for playing with the Inkspiration Challenge this week.
