A Walk in the Park

It was a Beautiful November Day and since it was 54 degrees it was just too nice of a day to not enjoy a great walk in the park. Our walk today inspired me for my card this week for the ABC Challenge. This week's challenge is to use Old Olive - Pumpkin Pie - Chocolate Chip. What GREAT colors for this time of year! If you're creating some holiday cards, be sure to join us at the challenge blog for some fun! I hope you have a wonderful holiday week! My card
uses CTMH similar colors - Olive - Sunset and Chocolate. This pretty new stamp is called Bountiful Season. I embossed the image with copper embossing powder. It has been awhile since I've got out the heat gun, that was fun! I'm also showing off my new Dark Chocolate striped ribbon.

Supplies: CTMH Paper Pear & Partridge, Sunset CS, Stamps Bountiful Season, Ink Versamark, Copper Embossing Powder, Dark Chocolate Striped Ribbon, Green Assortment Buttons, Brown Sparkles, SU Top Note Die

Holiday Magic

It's time for the annual "hunt for the P-E-R-F-E-C-T holiday card, LOL! Every year I make several different designs. I go through a process of " ... possibly ..... maybe...ok...yes!" It really is a process. Some years it's fun as there are several possibilities and some years it painful as one card after another, is put in the stash and the hunt goes on. It's all good though.

Here is another that's definitely a possibility. I do like this one and will make a few of these to send although I realize I don't have very many green buttons and that's one of my favorite parts of this card.  

This cute sketch was this weeks ABC Challenge Blog challenge for this week. I hope you will have some time to come and play! 

Supplies: All Close To My Heart (CTMH). Paper Mistletoe, Stamps Holiday Magic, Ink Cranberry, New England Ivy, Garden Green, Red Sparkles, Silver Stickles, Silver Ribbon
