Holiday Chaos - Day 7

Yikes I really have to finish decorating my Christmas tree... it's only 2 more weeks till Christmas. Luckily it's the last day of the holiday chaos. For the bingo today I used some bright colors, not really screaming Christmas, a bow for the ornament and 3 layers of card stock. The image is from Bugaboo stamps. The pine border is a Marta Stewart punch.

Holiday Chaos - Day 6

A couple of weeks ago I found a paper pad that I did not know I had. One of the sheets I have used for this card ("old" paper). Add a digi from Bugaboo stamps that I already own for a long time but did not use a lot yet ("old" image) and a lovely sketch from the current Stella sketch challenge and you end up with this card.

Snow family

A wonderful snow family from Beccy's Place and a stitching pattern from stitch & do cards only. Blue and green, one color fit for the winter and the other fit for Christmas.
