Sick, sick and still sick!

I've been fighting a cold for weeks (months, it seems) and then the stomach flu hit late last week. Blah! I haven't done much stamping in ages but did want to update my blog so I am posting some of the cards I've made in the last little while - Magnolia and SU!

This is one of the Christmas cards that I'm sending out. I've made a bunch of different ones, but they're all very similar - simple but nice. This one uses Old Olive as a base with Real Red and DSP for layering. I can't remember the DSP off the top of my head but it's the one in the mini (frosty day?). I love it and will have to make sure I get at least one more pack before the catty ends! I used Baja Breeze ribbon around the layers. The stamp is from Cute & Curly and is punched out with the Curly Label punch. I stamped it again in Old Olive and then cut out the oval and mounted it using a dimensional.

This card uses Blue Bayou as a base (5.5 square). The patterned paper is by Basic Grey (Granola) - I LOVE it! I need to buy lots more, I think :) I did have some trouble matching the colours with my stash of solid papers but I do like how it turned out. I used Night of Navy and Chocolate Chip underneath the patterned layers. I ran Blue Bayou ribbon along the side and made a little bow for it. I'm not happy with the bow so I think I'll have to adjust that before sending this one out. There are crystal rhinestones on the bottom right corner as well. Tilda in striped tights is coloured in using Copics, of course! I have more of these on my wish list for Christmas :)

Thanks for looking, as always. I love hearing what you all have to say! Stay healthy and the countdown is on! I hope you're all more organized than I am this year. I'm not finished any of the gifts/cards I'm making. Yikes!

Hi Teri,
I went to your page and wanted to come stop by your blog and say Hi.

It is funny because when you blog was uploading I thought now how did my blog upload when I clicked the direct link to teri's??? We have the same blog layout and colors!! I love green, and this layout just fits me perfectly! I have thought about getting a personal one, but I think I love mine to much to give up the greens!!!

I love your magnolia cards and the last challenge card. Somehow I missed that one!!

Great job and creativity!
