Do you know why everybody is saying "the holidays.......already"?  It's because it's true! This year has flown by for us and, apparently, for most others too.  So for my October crazy card club I chose to do a cute Christmas card.  It's here, might as well embrace it.

Here it is... It was a fun card to create .. and color .l.. hope you like it too!

Materials used were

Stampin Up "Christmas Messages" (inside sentiment)
The paper is SU "Nordic Noel" - currently on clearance rack!
SU real red and SU whisper white
The ribbon is SU 1/4" cotton in real red

And the kitty?  That's my Bailey ... my best assistant!

Thanks for dropping by

Holidays SAS

Hi Friends

It's starting to seem more and more like the holidays.  Even here in toasty southern California we've had some rain and cooler temperatures... yay!!  Last Saturday I went to my friends SAS where we made cards for the upcoming holidays...

I love this cute Halloween card.  It uses the new woodland embossing folder and the super cute spider web doilies.  They are already cut out for you... so easy!

For this card we used the new stamp set 'Thankful Forest Friends',  the big tree from 'Lovely as a Tree' and the sentiment is from 'For all Things'.

Isn't this pretty?  It uses the new 'Lighthearted Leaves' and the coordinating Leaflets framelits... makes this card so fun and easy

We used some of this darling dsp 'Home for Christmas' and 'Cup of Cheer'.  We also got to play with the new fine tipped glue pen and some dazzling diamonds.  It sparkles!!

This is another new stamp set 'All ye Faithful' which we stamped with silver ink and then heat set with silver embossing powder.  A lovely card.

Love the new 'Embellished Ornaments' bundled with the Delicate Ornament thinlits dies.  All topped off with the bow punch and a sparkly platinum ribbon.

This adorable card uses the new 'Sleigh Ride Edgelits dies'.  These are very delicate and a little tricky but if you use the dryer sheet it is a snap.  Do you remember the sandwich I talked about in an earlier post?  Here it is again. 

 Starting from the bottom.... magnetic plate, clear plate, dryer sheet, card stock, waxed paper, thinlit or edgelit, and your top clear plate.  It works beautifully!

That's it from me today... stay tuned as more and more holiday cards will be featured.  I'm working on my crazy card for October... which is a pretty cute Christmas card... think hedgehogs!  

See you soon... thanks for the visit
