Mojo Monday #171 & PDCC61 colours
Guess what I got for Christmas? A new Martha Stewart punch... so I put it into action for this week's Mojo sketch, and wanted to use this week's Play Date Cafe colours again, too:

Play Date Cafe Challenge #61
A Belated Merry Christmas to all of you... I haven't been able to post in about a week since I caught a cough/cold/sinus type thing a few days before Christmas, so was glad to be feeling well enough today to find some play time! The current Play Date Cafe Challenge has an interesting colour combo that I used to make a thank-you card that I need to send. Here is our inspiration:

Another quick one...
I'm trying hard to get teacher gifts sent out tomorrow, and hope to put the last few cards in the mail... so I *think* these are my last Christmas cards of the season. Fairly simple, and similar to a few I've done this year, but I still have a bit of the Mistletoe paper kicking around - so here's what I came up with:
Ribbon, Michael's; Stamp set is Holiday Trinkets; Patterned papers are Mistletoe; Cardstock is Cocoa & Colonial White; Inks are Garden Green, Cocoa & Cranberry - all CTMH

I'm combining this week's Heart2Heart Challenge (gift items) and the Color Throwdown Challenge. I made a set of Christmas gift tags that I'm giving as a hostess gift next weekend. Sometimes I think that tags take longer to make than cards! But it was fun. Here is our colour inspiration:
Patterned papers are Mistletoe, & Mistletoe Creative Basics; Cardstock is Cocoa, New England Ivy, Cranberry & Colonial White; Stamp sets are Just for the Holidays, Christmas Melodies & New Fallen Snow; Inks are Cranberry, Cocoa, Desert Sand & New England Ivy - all CTMH; Michael's ribbon, kraft paper; Martha Stewart punch, Stickles.

I'm a Lucky Lady!
A few weeks ago, Vicki Wizniuk had a little give-away on her blog, and guess who won?? Me! She asked us to tell her what was our favourite project of hers, and I didn't even hesitate, I remembered her Humble Artist's Swap card from August 2009 - and to this day it is one of my fave cards (you can see it here). So look what I won - a CTMH Triple Play mini book kit, and a handmade card from her. Talk about getting fun mail :o) Then last week I won the November challenge at Curves (I lost a combined 6.6 pounds & inches!). Don't things always happen in 3's? I may run out and pick up a lotto ticket this evening. Here are my goodies:

Mojo Monday #168
I've had a request from a friend for a 90th birthday card! So I took a break from Christmas cards to work on this one... I paired it with this week's Mojo Monday sketch, and one of my new favourite Verve dies:

I paired up this week's Color Throwdown Challenge with the Card Patterns sketch... I haven't used these little elves yet this year, and it was great to use a non-traditional colour combo for a change!
And here's my effort:

Play Date Cafe Challenge #58
This was SOOO much harder than I expected it to be! Red & White - how hard can that be?? When I dug through my paper stash, and found that most of my holiday stuff was red/white&green... or distressed red & cream... I became quite determined to do a fairly pristine red & white card :o) So I went with some Jingle patterned papers, taught myself how to make a folded medallion, and pulled out the sewing machine. Even though I quite like my card, it's not Christmassy enough for me... I may glitter it up a bit. Here's our Play Date Cafe inspiration:
Patterned papers are Jingle; Cardstock is White Daisy & Tulip; Stamp sets are Evergreen & Just for the Holidays; - all CTMH.
