Crud, it’s already November and I’ve barely begun to get any Christmas cards done. Unfortunately, I did not make these Christmas cards, but I did have fun with them.
This first one was done for the MFP SpeedyTV Sketch With a Twist Challenge this week. The twist was to include a tag. Well, I also wanted to try telescoping, which took more room than intended, so I didn’t have a lot left for my tag at the end. Got this paper last weekend (I’m not your typical pick up paper that appeals type, but I love the color – teal – and the butterflies) and really wanted to use it.
Supplies: papers (Recollection), ribbon (Celebrate It 360), tag (Lasting Impressions template), sentiment and flower image (Stately Flowers 4 – Gina K.), perfect pearls (Forever Green – Ranger), butterfly (?? – got from friend)
This second card was done for the MFP SpeedyTV Simple Salutations Challenge this week of using a cat. I am NOT a cat lover, so I don’t have a lot of cat images. The idea behind this was a cat peeking out with leaves flying everywhere. We don’t actually have leaves that fall all over here, so I’m imagining. The cat head was done with a Lasting Impressions stencil and highlighted with colored pencils. The barrel is from the Stately Flowers 4 set (Gina K.). The sentiment is from the Stenciled Spring set (Gina K.). I used rich cocoa and rhubarb stalk inks (Memento) along with colored pencils (Koh-i-Noor). The paper came in a magazine. Now, on to the card . . .
Whew, I think that’s enough jabbering for me. Unfortunately, I didn’t get any of my Christmas cards done, so I need to go figure some of those out before my in-laws arrive for dinner.
Thanks for spending some time with me today!
