Joy to the World

Well, Autumn has officially arrived! We have had a very mild September and got quite a lot of wear out of our summer wardrobes. However, with the change of the season comes the cooler temps and some rain. Even with the rain, I do love autumn! Happy first day of fall!

Here is another card for my Christmas Card stash!

Saturated Canary Warmest Wishes

Well, Hello! Long time no blog eh? I've been plenty busy, just not in the craft room until this weekend when I attended a Scapbook and Cards today "Crop and Create" event! Those ladies sure know how to put on a crop! Fun, friends and time to get crafty! I took a fabulous "Texture Play" class with the one and only Vicki Boutin - she is such a blast!

This is one of the four Christmas cards I created while cropping. I also made a Christmas layout, an engagement card and learned several new techniques in Vicki's class!

Here is a peek at the inside, because I always finish the innards! 

It has been TOO long since I played along over at Jingle Belles and Shopping Our Stash, so I am going to share at both today since they are having a joint challenge. All you need to do is use something on your winter/holiday card that is more than one year old. 

Everything used on this one is more than a year old, except maybe for the sentiment on the inside. In fact, I will even admit that I coloured the image long ago and forgot about it. I found it when packing for the crop and decided that it needed to make it onto a card pronto!

I would also like to share at:
Christmas Card Challenges where there is a photo inspiration this week - hence the {hard to see in the photo} - Stickles applied to my snowflakes.
Christmas Stamping all year long - lots of textures or layers

Thanks for stopping in!

What I used:
image - Saturated Canary
papers - We R Memory Keepers "Winter Frost"
blue embossed paper - CTMH
sentiment on front CTMH
embroidery floss, edge distresser
Unity sentiment (inside) from "Like a Snowflake"

S is for Smile

 I LOVE using CTMH's Picture My Life cards to make quick cards. I had some fun with the colours - not a colour combo that I would often turn to, but so much fun!

I was inspired by the sketch at JUGS 

Thank you for visiting!
