PP372 Ho Ho Ho Sketch from Joanne

Happy Sunday, all!  I hope you've weathered Thanksgiving, Black Friday and whatever it is they call the Saturday after Thanksgiving, all okay!  I do admit to doing a wee bit of online shopping for myself, but I do not venture out during those crazy times!!!  

Joanne is our fabulous hostess at the Paper Players this week with a sweet little sketch:

I was also inspired by the colors of red and turquoise in the Just Us Girls challenge this week too!

I spent a little time this weekend in my craft room sorting, sorting, sorting....and I found this die I purchased last year and it hadn't been out of the package!  So it was my starting point for my Christmas card:

I already had a Bermuda Bay card precut and scored, so I chose that as my background, adding some retired SU DSP, some silver Mini Tinsel Trim, and an image of Santa, checking his list.  I also embossed a portion of the background with a Christmas word embossing folder:

I used a few different sets for the inside; it's so weird that Bermuda Bay ink on Bermuda Bay cardstock looks green!!

So glad you could pop in today; I hope you'll check out the Paper Players blog to see what the others created, and while you're there, share your creation with us as well!  Can't wait to see what you create!

My new kitchen has a nice long countertop on which to make cookies!  Cassidy is practicing with my cookie gun, and she did a really great job with it, too!

We had to try all the different disks....she really like giving the little men "eyes":

And of course, licking the beaters just goes without saying:

We're still working on the backsplash...we have a lot of sawing and painting to do, but we'll have it done by Christmas, LOL!

Enjoy your day and be blessed!

That's a great embossing folder! Your kitchen looks grand...I especially like the window. Cassidy is quite the all around girl with her baking and card making! Have a blessed day.

I love this card, LeAnne! That Santa image goes great with your diecut and the embossed card base and I really REALLY like your color combo! Great job on this! Wow, your kitchen is coming to life and Cassidy baking cookies just makes me smile! I can't wait to get my house back together this week and bake some cookies! Shawn put new flooring down over this holiday weekend and my house is absolutely trashed! Atleast my Christmas tree is up! LOL TFS and have a wonderful Sunday! :)

What a great discovery LeAnne - the tidy up was worth it to find your die, a real hidden treasure! I love it, beautifully complimented with the red and white Santa against that fabulous Bermuda Bay embossed background. A fab card! Nice to see Cassidy getting busy in the new kitchen too - her cookies look scrumptious!

I love these bright, happy colors for Christmas, and the big die cut sentiment is awesome! Terrific take on the the layout, LeAnne. Your photos of Cassidy remind me that I bought a spritz cookie machine a couple years ago and have only used it once. See, it's not just the stamps that get neglected!

Annie A. said...

Fun color combo - one of my faves! Isn't it fun when you're sorting through things and find something you bought last year! That die is wonderful :) Hope you're having a great week ~ Hugs, Annie

Claire Broadwater said...

LeAnne, you know this is my favorite color combo! Such a bright, cheerful card. Love that new die, the embossing and the beautiful Santa! WOW--send Cassidy over to make cookies for me. Love your new kitchen, too! ENJOY! XX
