Another post today, you say? Well, every friday over at the Christmas Stampin All Year Long blog there will be a new challenge posted to help our mojo get going to keep creating holiday cards all year long. Today we have a challenge to create a holiday card that is mostly pink! I love this challenge! As much as I love the traditional colors for Christmas, its also fun to use the non-traditional colors to create a holiday card :) I used my scrap pieces of paper (hooray for using scraps!) to create this card which is made using the Star of Wonder stamp set from Verve.
Paper: Scraps of pink paper
Stamps: Verve - Star of Wonder
Ink: White Stazon and clear EP
Accessories: corner rounder, liquid pearls, CM cutter, MS tree punch, dimensionals, bling/ribbon from stash
I loved creating this card and can't wait to make some more! I LOVE participating in this Christmas Stampin All Year Long group because its a way to keep the holiday mojo flowin' all year long :) Please hop on over to the CSAYL blog and check all the holiday pinks that the DT has created!!! Can't wait to see your lovely creations!
Thanks so much for stoppin' by!
Are you guys as ready for spring as I am? Well, today, there is a wonderful springy color, inspiration challenge that is happening over at Embellish Magazine that Julee, the owner and creator of Verve stamps is sponsoring. Here is the inspiration pic and I absolutely LOVE these colors!! Just looking at them is such a breath of fresh air - its like spring is just around the corner!! Woo-hoo!
I don't know how much more winter we can take (or rather, "I" can take!) the kids seem to LOVE it everytime it snows, but to me, this late in the winter season it means more shoveling, more de-icing, and more crazy driving! Oh to be a kid again and sip hot chocolate after a hard days work of sledding!!! lol!
Well, what a better way to "think spring" than to create something with these yummy colors! The challenge is also to do something with borders in your creation.I used Amber's beautiful sketch for Viva La Verve (Week 4) for this card using Julee's beautiful stamp set Thankful Hearts.
Here is another view of the card from the other side:
You can check out the challenge over here for all the yummy details and some yummy prizes as well!
Thanks so much for stopping by today!!

I couldn't put this set down :) So I kept going and made some cards that were 4x4 with the same layout with the super cute to go coffee cup, but each having a different sentiment inside:
Here is an individual picture of each one. Here is the card: "Hope your birthday is good to the last drop"Here is the card: "Just wanted to Expresso my Gratitude":
