Happy Thursday!

Hello.  I have another collection to share with you.  It seems when the crafting bug bites me, it bites hard!  Hope you enjoy :)

 For this card, I made myself pull out some products I hadn't used in a while.  Sometimes I get so caught up in some of my "new" products I forget about all the good stuff sitting on the shelf crying to be used again!
Stamps: Hello Doily, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Paper: Pistachio Pudding, Blushing Bride, Whisper White
Ink: Pistachio Pudding, Blushing Bride
Accessories: Big Shot, Little Leaves Sizzlet, Floral Fusion Sizzlet, Large Basic Pearls, Basic Pearls Jewels, Bitty Banner Framelits, Pistachio Pudding 3/8" Stretch Ruffle Ribbon, Sponges

 I'm having lots of fun making all these Christmas cards early - its giving me tons of ideas for upcoming classes!  This is a new set out of the Holiday Catalog - and one I just had to have.  Its so simple and yet speaks volumes.
Stamps: O Holy Night
Ink: Island Indigo, Smoky Slate, Coastal Cabana
Paper: Island Indigo, Smoky Slate, Whisper White, Coastal Cabana, Winter Frost DSP Stack
Accessories: 1/2" Circle Punch, 3/4" Circle Punch, Silver 1/8" Ribbon

I do like the end result of this card but I sure was frustrated in the process!  I wanted to make a ribbon flower behind the acorns but all I succeeded in doing was massively burning my fingers with hot glue!  The piece behind the ribbon is actually Very Vanilla but I dropped it in the Pear Pizzazz it has some deeply colored Pear edges.
Stamps: Truly Grateful
Ink: Pear Pizzazz, Early Espresso, Crushed Curry
Paper: Pear Pizzazz, Early Espresso, Crushed Curry, Very Vanilla
Accessories: Simply Pressed Clay, Simply Pressed Buttons and Blossoms Clay Molds, Early Espresso 1/4" Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon, Woodgrain EF, Crystal Effects, Big Shot, Bitty Banners Framelits

 Just a closer view - the acorns and buttons are covered in Crystal Effects.

I'll be back a little later to add some more creations - the little ones are demanding lunch now!
