Christmas cards???

Hello folks!  I hope you're having a good weekend, although I know there are a few people not feeling too well at the minute, so to you especially, I hope you feel much better soon!

This evening I have three cards to share with you for six different challenges!  Unfortunately, the picture quality isn't great, as the light was starting to fade when I took them.

This first one is for the Challenge over at Merry Monday #115, which is to create an all white Christmas card, although the sentiment can be in silver.  I'm not saying I'll definitely be able to keep up with this, but it's a good idea to get started on the Christmas cards now.

(All supplies are Stampin' Up!):
Decorative Dots embossing folder
Silver foil card
Expressions framelits
Designer frames embossing folder (retired)
Whisper White cardstock
Scentsational Season stamps (retired)

The second card is a sympathy card that I made for a friend who recently lost her mum.  It's going into the Seize the Sketch Challenge #23.  I rotated this one onto its side.

For this one I used one of my favourite Stampin' Up! colours, Smoky Slate to stamp the lovely tree from 'Hopeful Thoughts' along with the sentiment.  I also stamped the other image from this same stamp set to make a delicate background.  I finished it all off with Smoky Slate chevron ribbon.

My final card for this evening is this one which I'm entering into a combination of four challenges:

Strawberry Slush Cardstock, Ink and Marker
Crumb Cake designer paper, Ink and ribbon
Something for Baby stamps
Circle and scallop circle punches
Wood heart embellishment
Crystal effects
{All Stampin' Up!}


 Thank you for popping by today!
