Speedy Cat #30

I made several holiday cards at a ladies day workshop this weekend.  I left my bg stamp at home by mistake and borrowed this Embossing Folder by cuttlebug from my daughter. I inked the folder with black ink and got three impressions out of it in varying shades and they all looked nice.  This one was one of the the third time through so the black is quite light.  The greeting on the red strip and the holly leaves are from Mark's Finest Paper Musical Holiday Set and the black circular frame is from MFP Frames and Flourishes set. Inside is the rest of the greeting that says this Joyous Holiday Season

Silver Snowflake

Okay, I reaaalllly am not ready to start in with all the snowflakes and such.   Winter is sooooo long here I try to put it off.  There is snow in the forecast for tonight though so I guess it's time.  :(

I have entered this in three challenges StampTV sketch, Stampin Sisters#64 weather and Speedy Cat Snowflake #29

I embossed the snowflake with silver EP and then cut with nesties and taped to a chipboard. Red paper and ribbon are SU. Thanks for looking and becoming a follower.

Coffee Shop Inspiration

ODBD has a challenge to use gold cord.  I thought this was funny b/c I hardly ever grab that stuff (it just doesn't stay tied right for me) anyway I used it on two cards this week.  I thought I would enter this one for ODBD.  I got the inspiration for this from a new coffee shop my husband and I went to last Sat.  It was so gorgeous in there and I told hubby...I can make a card like that.  This is my take of their decor.  Notice the gold cord! --A three fold cord shall not be broken the scripture says. It's true and that stuff is TOUGH.
