This was my first time making this style tote. I love it compared to the other one I had made. It is quick and simple!! These will make great gift sets to give to people for gifts. I used purely pomegranate, river rock and soft sky. Used Baroque Motif stamp set of course!! I did a couple simple card designs, added some gems and ribbon. I wanted to keep them simple, but still a little detailed. I've made 3 more of these since this set last night. I'm hooked on these totes.

I was hired by my friend Kels to make little cards for her Avon customers to give to them during the holiday season. What a great idea to give to her customers and what a great idea to hire me for the job... hee hee... money for some new stuff. I kept them really simple as I had 30 to make and wanted to keep it cost efficient as well. I used The Snowflake Spot set and the reindeer from Sleigh full of toys. Mellow moss, vanilla and cranberry crisp for the one style and Blue bayou, soft sky and some white on one version. Took me a couple hours, but they are done done done. Now to get my xmas cards and sets made.
I actually made a card on the day of a colour challenge, it's a first and hopefully not a last. It's a card that's vision didn't quite make it. It's a weird one for me, but was fun. The colours are basic grey, purely pomegranate and soft sky... I love these colours seperately, together you name it. I need to get more scallop punches. The store is always out when it's sale time. How convenient, I say! I used the In the Spotlight Stampin Up hostess set that I earned from my July party. Whatever will I earn in two weeks at my next party.... hmm. I can't wait to see the next mini due out for December. Thanks for looking!

I borrowed the Sleight Full of Toys from Melissa. I thought I'd try something other then snowflakes. I used my basic grey fruitcake - tidings/wintermint paper to pull the colours from and added some garden green too. I actually made a xmas card with holiday colours. The colouring of the sleigh was actually a bit fun.... bringing out the kid in me. I'm going to make my daugthers one all pink sleigh full of toys card and my other girl an all purple one... their favourite colours of course. I used river rock, very vanilla, cranberry crisp and garden green as well as the pp for this card. The picture turned out a little yellow looking. Maybe, one day I'll take a nice picture! Oh, I also used baroque motif for the background on the river rock and cranberry crisp.

I loved this weeks colour challenge on scs. I never have the time the day of to make anything, but was able to last night. I had just recently bought the basic grey pine branch/avalanche pp and thought this went well with the colours. I'm hosting our girls xmas party this year and have made it a martini night. Everyone bring something, so we can try different kinds of martini's. I'm thinking I'll give this card away to all the girls on that night when we do our xmas card exchange. It's not really christmas like, but I'm never traditional. I used choc. chip, blue bayou, river rock and basic grey pp. Some ribbon and a pearl brad for add ons. I kept it simple as I'll have to make 8. The only thing that I don't like is my writing as usual. I ruin things with it.
