It seems like I was just marking my 300th post milestone and now it’s 400, wow!


For my next two cards, I used the color challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments and was inspired to make Christmas cards (as were the DT there and several entries in the gallery!)




First I made this card using the Embellished Events stamp set and Festival of Prints dsp (retired).

2014 Card 124 - SU Embellished Events


Then I decided to make this card using the Mosaic Madness stamp set and sentiment from Embellished Events~

2014 Card 125 - SU Mosaic Madness

This one is a wee bit busy with the bold background paper but I still like it 🙂


Tomorrow it’s back to work so I think I may have to upload a few cards to an online gallery in order to avoid missing deadlines! I’ll still share them on the blog when I get a chance!
