Simple Christmas

IMG_9727 (635x800)Baby It’s Cold is the Wednesday Simon challenge.  I’ve been wanting to do a diagonal stripe card all season and have had this cut and just couldn’t find a way to use it.  My small Prickley Pear stamps and dies filled the bill.  Hooray! 

Let it snow

Simon’s Monday Challenge is about snow, you know that white stuff that blankets the northern states from October through April? 

Here is my creation for this challenge.  This is my third attempt at the Snowflake flip card.  I have progressed with each one.  They are not a simple card to make but they do turn out so pretty.  SU Sizzix die retired.

Thanksgiving is coming

IMG_9645 (800x632)Thanksgiving is right around the corner.  The beginning of the eating season….we won’t be doing much this year, just the hubs and me and we will sit by the fire and enjoy the quiet.  No big dinner to fix, no rolls to make, no pices to bake.  Ahhhh..i’m looking forward to that.  Doesn’t stop me from making Thanksgiving cards for Simon’s Monday challenge though.

Thankful for Prickley Pear

I really like my Prickley Pear stamps.  I’m not sure why i don’t pull them out more often.  They stamp so nicely and the designs are a bit vintage with a bit of whimsey.  I pulled the sweet pumpkin set out today and inked up one of the non-halloween ones.  I wish I had pulled them out for my Halloween cards.  Maybe next year I’ll remember that.

Simon has a Thanks/Thanksgiving challenge this week.
