Felt Fun for NAC115

Happy Wednesday, peeps!  Yay, we made it to the halfway point of the week!  I just loved the Nacho Average Challenge sketch this week, and since I haven’t played with them in a long time, I went to work!
A local gift shop owner asked me if I would put some hand-stamped Christmas cards in her shop, and of course, I said yes!  I have lots of cards already, but I thought I’d delve into some of the Christmas DSP that I don’t get a chance to use too often to make a few more!  These papers are from Authentique’s Two Christmases in One; the blue paper was stamped with an image from a retired Cornish Heritage Farm set called Winter Vintage Signage in Lost Lagoon ink (boy, I miss CHF!!); the sentiment is from Papertrey’s Daily Designs Sentiments, stamped in Cherry Cobbler.

I used a Nestie die to cut out a mitten  from the HUGE stash of felt I am hoarding, and added a little Candy Dot brad and floss bow!  A little line of embossing with SU’s retired Needlepoint EF finished it off.
While I had my felt out, I cut out a banner shape and created a tree:

The papers I used for this card are from Lily Bee’s Jingle line; I cut out a snowy stitched hill in Naturals White with a Lawn Fawn die, added a cardinal from SU’s Festival of Trees, some sequins from Sylvia’s etsy store,  and a sparkly star punched from some Dazzling Diamonds glimmer paper.  Sentiment is from Verve:
Using up some of my stash makes me happy!
Cassidy is quite the hostess, serving lunch to several of her dolls; today’s menu is cookies, carrots and corn!
Have a great day!

Wonderful cards. I love the felt mitten and tree. Hey I like the stitching I see on the first card. I love the beautiful paper and that wonderful sentiment on the second card.
Love seeing the pictures of Cassidy. Those cookies she's serving look delicious;)
