Christmas card crazy......

For all my U.S blog friends, I hope y'all are enjoying the Thanksgiving weekend.

I survived my "Black Friday " day out with the girls. Surprisingly the mall wasn't really that crowded. I got a few good deals, but my daughter was doing most of the shopping. I was really along for the ride. We had a great day. I drug the girls to Recollections to see if they had any Basic Grey Figgy Pudding papers. Sadly they didn't, but they had plenty of other papers that I just couldn't resist. I'll take a picture of all the cool papers and post them in another post. We also saw the movie "Enchanted". What a great movie for a girls day out! I highly recommend it!

Here is a card that I made for Sharon's blog challenge using Daisy D paper I found yesterday.

This was super simple! Just DP, Bravo Burgundy, Sage Shadow CS and Ribbon. I printed the sentiment from my computer and did some faux stitching.

The next card was for the Limited supply challenge that Jen70 posted yesterday. I really like how this turned out. It's another super simple card. I may use this for my Christmas cards this year because it would be easy to mass produce.

Just red and white CS . Snowflake and Made From Scratch and Penny Black sentiment stamps and Basic Gray and Real Red Ink. Snowflake Punch and Red Stickles.

This next card I thought I was making for Jen's layout challenge but I left out a layer. I really should have printed it out like I usually do, but I didn't. This one was made using lots of scraps.

The inspiration for the colors came from the chipboard letters (Target). I used my Fiskars tag template to make the tag. The CS colors are Real Red, Positively Pink, Certainly Celery, Soft Sky. I used my Snowflake stamps and punch for the tag. Ribbon (Dashes, Dots and Checks) is blue velvet. Isn't this a fun card?

All items are Stampin Up unless other wise stated.

That's it for now! I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
