Unconventional Christmas. Why Not?

Good Wednesday, Folks!
     Found a pretty "cool" color combo at Nacho Average Challenge this week and this sketch at Sketch Frenzy Friday that truly did challenge me today.  
Can you tell that I'm already dreaming of a white Christmas?  LOL  It's true!  My card uses Pool Party, Bermuda Bay, Melon Mambo, Whisper White card stock, (and ink) and Silver Glimmer paper.  the stamp sets used were More Merry Messages, Greetings of the Season (for the inside) and Snowflake Soiree.  The snowflake dies are retired.  
Hope you enjoy my card today and spend some cool time stamping this week too.  If you try a sketch, share your card with me.  I'd love to see it!

Chalk Talk and Tape It

Hello Ladies,
While trying to find inspiration for my make and take card last weekend I  scoured through blogs and websites, and finally landed on Jenny Peterson's  blog.  She used  the new "Tape It"  stamp set and that became the focus of my card with the sentiment from the new "Chalk Talk" set.  A bit of a different color scheme, and this card was born!  Basic Gray card base, Whisper White panel on front, and the color combo idea of Coastal Cabana, Calypso Coral, and Smoky Slate was straight from the color coach.  Markers, the wide oval punch and the decorative label punch finished off the sentiment, with a touch of basic gray ribbon underneath.  Hope you enjoy this quick and easy card today and try this sketch sometime, too!

Birthday Basics and Bling!

 Hello Friends,
     Here today with a new card inspired by a sketch challenge from the folks over at Sunday Stamps AND the Bling challenge at Paper PlayersI absolutely love the new Birthday Basics designer series paper from Stampin Up and I thought it would be perfect for this challenge.  It was a pretty quick and easy card, too.  A fun and bold patterned paper and an equally bold focal sentiment make this card a success for me.   Hope you enjoy it too.  (this paper is so much fun, I smiled the whole time I was playing!)   :-D
