Christmas is Only 4 months Away

Today's Limited Supply Challenge (use a snowman) got me in the mood for Christmas cards. I made a very merry cowboy snowman and then decided to post some more holiday cards.

Stamps: Cowboy Snowman - High Hopes, Warm Words - SU
Paper: real red & DSP, wild wasabi & DSP, white
Ink: black, real red
Accessories: Copic markers for coloring, real red SU marker, ribbon, designer label, ticket corner, & oval punches, white gel pen

I was so sad to see Peaceful Wishes retire. I enjoy seeing all the ways stampers can use this set and I'm afraid there won't be as many posted this year.

Stamps: Peaceful Wishes - SU, Noel - Hampton Art Stamps
Paper: very vanilla, mellow moss, broque burgundy
Ink: mellow moss, baroque burgundy
Accessories: crimper, taffta ribbon, markers
Techniques: sponging, crimping

As a cat lover, I love cats on any kind of card... even Christmas cards. :)

Stamps: Fluffles - Stampendous, Fantastic Foliage & Canvas - SU

Ink: black, certainly celery
Accessories: SU markers, star punches, ribbon, gold glitter pen

Hang in There Mike!

I love Mike the Monkey. He reminds me that I'm still hanging on through some tough times. I received this cute guy in a RAK... but my memory hasn't been very good lately so I don't know who it came from. Sorry about that.

I used today's sketch challenge on SCS. Even with the Ott lamp, I can't seem to get a good picture of the wild wasabi ribbon.

Stamps: Mini Mates, Bodacious Bouquet - SU, Mike on a Vine - High Hopes
Paper: wild wasabi, garden green, creamy caramel, white
Ink: wild wasabi, riding hood red, pumpkin pie, black
Accessories: Copic makers, creamy caramel marker, wild wasabi ribbon, dimensionals

I used the same basic layout with the same stamp set. I changed the colors and added ribbon and a sentiment. Here's Kim's sweet card.
