Holiday Stash Grows

If you are looking for my Crazy4Challenges card, see post below or click HERE.



My stamping time has been somewhat limited lately, so whenever I have a spare moment, I try to add another holiday card to my holiday stash.  Today I have two cards to share.  The first was done with a sketch from My Time Made Easy, a challenge blog.  I also entered it into today's Inspiration Challenge on SCS.  It uses stamps by Stampscapes, Serendipity Stamps, and PSX.  The snowflake was made with a Spellbinder die.
This second card was made using a very old, retired SU set..  The sentiment comes from another SU set.  The snowflakes were from a Martha Stewart punch.  I had bought this set in my pre-Copics days and had never been happy with any coloring of any of the images.  Here I kept the coloring to a minimum and somewhat monochromatic, and I do like it.

Well, thanks for stopping by.  Hope you have a fabulous St. Pat's Day and a wonderful weekend.

Whoa...Christmas in March?? You are so dedicated to your craft, Joanne!! I am so ready for Spring here, can't think of that time of year again! :) But I do love your cards, the Serendipity sentiment is so beautiful, and your snowman scene with that sweet boy is really so sentimental!! Lovely on both counts!

Oh...wowzer! These are gorgeous and you know I love that red, black, and white. I think I may have to use that sketch, too..it's awesome. The 2nd one I love because I love dots and big ol' snowmen. Just adorable!
