Peace and Joy

Another Christmas card for the stash, actually I made two of these. I saw this layout on a card for sale on Etsy and totally fell for it. It was a kraft card base with some pretty gold foiled paper. As soon as I saw it, I thought of this paper, Sparkle and Shine from CTMH. I decided to use the Slate cardstock for the card base and slate ink.  The snowflakes were cut with my silhouette and edged with Slate ink as well.  








I absolutely love the Juniper Waxy Flax from Close To My Heart and I wish they still sold it.  I think it's better than twine.  It holds it's shape so well.  And since I used my old stash of waxy flax I'm entering this card in Shopping Our Stash's Challenge - Christmas/Holiday/Winter and Jingle Belles Challenge - Shopping Our Stash.

Merry Christmas

Another vintage card to share - this time a Christmas card.  I used one of my first stamp sets Vintage Christmas from CTMH.  I also finally used some paper from MME's Santa Clause paper pack.  Both I had been wanting to pair up for some time.  






I adopted my friend Donna's idea of using up paper scraps on the corners of the inside of the card.  I kind of wish I had used Ruby ink on the inside sentiment as well though, oh well.

I'm entering this in Shopping Our Stash's Challenge - Christmas/Holiday/Winter and Jingle Belles Challenge - Shopping Our Stash.    

Stamps: CTMH Vintage Christmas and Chard Chatter - Christmas Holidays

Time for a change....

I've decided to take a new job and I'll be saying good bye to my co-workers of the last 5 1/2 years in a couple days.  I made these cards for my 4 favorite people at the office. Luckily we keep in touch away from work too so it's not a final good bye!!  Wish me luck at my new job :)
