Holiday Cards

Today I have a mix of cards to share with you. I feel like all my creativity went out the window last week after coming up with cards for my SAS...LOL...Anyone else ever have that problem? If so, how long til it comes back???
This first card I made for Jeanne and Sherry's Just Because We Wanna Challenge. You were to stop hoarding that Designer Paper and USE it! I had bought this gorgeous My Minds Eye paper a few weeks back at a local scrapbooking store but didn't want to touch it. So I pulled out a piece of it and got to work!
Supplies Used:
Stamps: Hanna Stamp and Circle of Friendship
Cardstock: Ruby Red, WW and My Minds Eye DP
Inks: Black, Old Olive, Close to Cocoa, So Saffron, Ruby Red
Accessories: 2 way glue pen and Dazzling Diamonds, Blender Pens, 1 1/4", 1 3/8" Circle Punch, Dimensionals and May Arts Ribbon
OK I feel that I need to explain this next card....lol...some of you may even recognize the layout. Yesterday while waiting for Chloe to finish her curling, I flipped through a Paper Crafts Magazine. Think it was the November issue. Anyway, somewhere in there was a card with this layout. I thought....hmmmm I can do that but with SU! stuff. Well ummmmm....here it is....rofl! The one is the magazine is WAY better...trust me! I'll add this to my Mom's pile of cards I'm sending....she always likes everything I send!

Supplies Used:
Stamps: Snow Flurries
Cardstock: Always Artichoke, Soft Sky and Wintergreen DP
Inks: Soft Sky
Accessories: 1/2", 7/8"Circle Punches, Dimensionals, Soft Sky Double Stitched Grosgrain
I'm sure many of you have gone over to Nancy Morgan's Paper Smiles. If you haven't....you better ;) She has some of the BEST cards out there!! This week's challenge was to make a card that was simple, with the Designer paper doing most of the work. Then you are to send it to someone for no reason...just because! Well it fit perfectly with something I was going to do! I needed to make a quick set of cards for my Mom's friend. I popped this set in the mail to her today and put a little note....Happy Early Christmas! I know everyone likes to give homemade cards so why not ship her some ;)

Supplies Used:
Stamp Sets: Circle of Friendship and Season of Joy
Cardstock: Glorious Green, Real Red, WW and Reminisce DP
Inks: Real Red and Glorious Green
Accessories: Snowflake Chipboard, White Craft Ink, Iridescent Ice, Scallop Punch, Circle Punches, Misc Ribbons, Dimensionals, Silver Elastic Cord,Word Window Punch

Love that dp papaer along with the tree. Wow that note card set is adorable. Love the tree dp and it's simple but very pretty. I'm sure she is going to love it. I think your snowflake card is cute but maybe just add a little glitter. Have a great evening! :)
