Here is the card for Day 293 - Color Scheme. The color scheme was dark blue, pale blue, pale green, lavender, and white. It's such a pretty combo. This is what I came up with. This card is also for the Our Creative Corner challenge - snow theme.These papers totally do not "match" but I think I made them "go." I used printed paper from DCWV, Creative Imaginations, and maybe Provo Craft is the other one. The cardstock is Bazzill and Close to My Heart (green). The snowman image is Stampin' Up. I masked him, then stamped some snowflakes all around. I used SU markers to color the snowman. The greeting is from Studio G.
Those yummy pearls are Recollections. I found a bunch of those on the sale rack at Michael's the other day. So I got some of every color. (Naturally!) The dotted ribbon is from Michael's too. That's been in my stash for dog's years.
This next card is for 365 Cards Day 294 - Imagine This - Fire. We are to let "fire" inspire us. Hmmmm...well.... I had colored this Simple Doodles image a few days ago, so knew I wanted to use it for today's challenge.
Again, I mixed it up with the papers - DCWV, Doodlebug, and the stripes I have no idea who makes those. The sentiment is part of a SU stamp. I just stamped the words because I thought they were hilarious with this image! My 18yo son thought so too. He said, "Good one, Mom! That's FUNNY!"I put some Stickles on Santa's hat. And, Rose, notice the stockings????
I also wanted to show you the bag toppers I made for the goodie bags I'm handing out in the neighborhood. Every year when I lived in NC I used to make something to pass out to my neighbors. I also did it the two Christmases we were in PA, but when I did it here in CA I had some very hostile and negative reactions from people! So I stopped doing it. However, last year the Lord put it on my heart to try again, and my "offering" was very well received! So, I am doing it again this year.I made the toppers and dh helped me stuff the bags...'cause he did not want me giving my germs to anyone! I think they turned out very festive! Each bag has: mini bags of coffee; dark, milk, and white chocolate-covered pretzels; mini fancy chocolates; and peppermint bark. Each of our 14 neighbors will get a bag, plus each of the folks who teach our kids at church (Sunday School, Youth Ministry, Band) will get a bag. Every year I try to think of something fun to make. Dh said this was his favorite item so far. High praise! I am also entering this treat bag for the Crazy 4 Challenges blog. They are asking for...well...treat bags!
See you tomorrow for my 365 Cards Sketchy Sunday post!
