Peace 49

Mona Pendleton | Tuesday, November 23, 2010 @ 1:00 AM | ,

Hi There! Hope you all are off to a great start of a new week! I had some crafty time when I came home from work and I made a few Christmas cards just for fun.
I'm lovin the new gorgeous colors of Spellbinders™ Precious Metals Premium Craft Foils. The  reindeer embellishment was made using Gunmetal foil and a S4-287 Fanciful Holiday die template.
I had a spare glittered snowflake sitting in a mound of left overs in my stash and added a few tags: one made from stamping the "Sleigh Bells Ring.." from Compliments of the Season on a Maya Road tag and a lil' tag with the Peace sentiment from Nutcracker Sweet combined with snowflakes from Sewing Box - Christmas and topped with a lil' rhinestone.
Next up, is a card featuring a mix of a stamped BG paper with embossed snowflakes from Very Vintage Christmas and fun Pink Paislee DP. The tree image and lil' tag display Pink Paislee Press ons and the Holiday WISHES sentiment is from Very Vintage Christmas
I hope you have a great Tuesday. I fortunately have the day off from work - YIPEEEE! My never ending to do list consists of conquering grocery shopping for the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday and hopefully joining my son for a lunch date :) Whatever is on your agenda for the day, I hope you had a great time. Thanks for looking - Be Sweet!

Supplies Used:
Stamps: Waltzingmouse Sewing Box - Christmas, Nutcracker Sweet, Very Vintage Christmas, Rescue Remedies, Compliments of the Season
Die Templates & Machine: Spellbinders™ S4-287 Fanciful Holiday, S4-290 Labels Fourteen, S4-291 Labels Fifteen, S4-286 2010 Snowflake Pendants, GC-001 Grand Calibur
Patterned Paper: Pink Paislee, graphic45
