Furry, Bright... and Merry

Hi, everyone! Hope the week is off to a great start.

I have two holiday cards to share.  :)

Card 1: Furry and Bright

This first card was inspired by the current My Favorite Things Sketch Challenge.... and some Black Friday MFT goodies that arrived in the mail.

Just love these sweet little pawliday pups. Too cute!!!

Fancy Pants Design dp; Stampin' Up! mossy meadows
MFT Happy Pawlidays images, stamped in MFT chocolate brown hybrid ink
images colored with Prismacolor pencils
Happy Pawlidays sentiment heat embossed with Versamark ink and SU white powder
Simon Says A2 curve die; Wink of Stella enhancements
adhesives: Scotch ATG; Recollections foam squares

I actually rotated the curved element, but kept the same orientation for the sentiment strip. Oh, and that dp. It's actually a summery, beachy paper collection. I colored the bulbs to coordinate with the fun colors in this paper.

Card 2: Merry

This second card was inspired by the current Jingle Belles Baby It's Gold Outside.

Recollections Gifts of Gold; Recollections Santa; (gold glitter); SU tranquil tide; stash white
Sue Wilson wreath die; various SU punches (for tiny circles)
SU good greetings sentiment, heat embossed with Versamark and gold embossing powder
adhesives: Scotch ATG; Zig 2-way glue pen; foam backing

Hubby even liked this one! LOL

Parting Thoughts
