Curly Christmas Tree

Hello....I know that I am in such a good mood today because the weather is wonderful.  Can you believe that it is September 7th already?  Christmas will be here before you know it. 

My dear sweet partner in card crime, Molly Martin and I designed this card for a mass produced Christmas Card class at A Memory to Scrap.  We used a different yet beautiful shade of green. It just happens to be my favorite color...Bazzill's Parakeet and the most fabulous glitter paper from Reminisce in Precious Jade. 

The cut is from Christmas cartridge and the embossing folder is from none other than the king himself Tim Holtz. You gotta love everything he puts out don't you?

It turned out extraordinary.  I don't know whether the picture shows it well enough or not, but we also embossed the edge of the envelope.  When you want to give your envelope a little extra something that will not affect it's mailing ability this is a creative solution.  For those of you wondering about the return address, you can put it on the back flap.  So there you have it.  I will check back in with you tomorrow.

A Splash of Color

Hello all!!!  Today's post is another challenge.  This one comes from We were challenged to use the color yellow on our project.   

When I think of yellow I think of summer.  And summer always brings fun, sun,  flowers and outdoors to my mind.  So that brings me to bees....
I know my train of thought is a little squirrely, but that is how I think. 

We were celebrating Judy's birthday today at A Memory to Scrap and I needed to make her a card.  Once again these challenges come in handy...I will make her a yellow bee birthday card.  And here it is...

I cut the bee from the Create a Critter cartridge and the flowers from Potpourri Basket.  I love the happy colors on this card.  I love to doodle on my projects.  If you are a perfectionist you have to get over the fact that doodling is not perfect, nor should it be.Perfect for a Happy

I am planning to work on another challenge tomorrow.  These things are great for getting things completed and giving you a little nudge ...Talk later.
