Merry and Bright Kristina Inspiration #21...take 2


Happy Friday! Thanks for all your sweet comments on the little tree card from yesterday! I loved those colors so much, I used them to make another Merry and Bright card before going to bed last night.

I had the striped paper scrap and that little chipboard circle (the dot to an "i" from Target $1 Spot letters) laying in my pile of desk scraps, so I decided to use those. I don't know if you can see, but the green stripe paper has a Coluzzle circle cut line still in tact where I decided not to cut it out and use it. Underneath the snowman where you can't see, it also has a baby carriage stamped on it and a snowflake punched out of it that ended up on this card (the Baja Breeze print side). I just love this stamp set, soooo glad it made it into the new catalog.

Do you have big plans for the weekend? Or are you resting from last week's big holiday weekend? I'm going to a crop with my peeps tomorrow night, but I'll mostly be working on swap cards...including my new Holiday Mini Catalog swaps! I'm almost ashamed to admit it, but my Holiday Mini pre-order came in on Thursday, and I didn't even open any of the packages! *hanging head in shame* I got all involved in Kristina's fun colors and using up scraps on my desk, crazy huh? But I'm heading in there tonight to come up with some (hopefully) fabulous designs! (I will not take a nap, I will not take a nap, I will not take a nap...!)

Have a fun Friday night and thanks for stopping by! Have you stamped something today?

Look at all the cards you've been making...SO cute! I'm just catching up on my week away. The move to the new building has been a killer! The first few days with kids went better than expected for my level of preparedness (that level being: NOT prepared). I love my staff though, and we're all in the same boat trying to support each other. Thanks for your words of encouragment the last couple of weeks. :-)
