Mary, Mary quite Christmas?

Well this weekend continues to be fun, fun, FUN!!! Got two more cards done and I'm done for the week's challenges at 365 Cards...now I guess I need to clean up/organize the craft room so I'm ready for next week's challenges! hehe!


Day 188- Touchy, Feely Friday I bought some Fun Flock a couple of weeks ago after another "texture" challenge on SCS. Didn't use if for that one but tried it for this one. Can't say I'm such a fan of flocking...seem to remember that one of my grandparents' houses had some wallpaper that had it on it, but other than that, haven't seen it many places :) So for this one I used a scroll stamp that I got in a lot from eBay. Used Martha Stewart glue pad and white fun flock with a bit of Martha Stewart fine glitter in it. Those are done on Real Red CS. Stamped the ornaments on Whisper White with Brilliance Galaxy Gold ink and cut out the images. The "Happy Holidays" stamp is from Mike's. Popped a couple of the ornaments and the sentiment up, and that's about it for this one.


Day 189 - Charming
If you don't know, my mom very much likes Mary Engelbreit design and the cherries and this chair (the charm) are two of her favorite of ME's images. Anyway, not sure she'll get this, but I thought of her the whole time I was making it. Had trouble deciding on the ribbon, couldn't find the exact combo I wanted but this seems to work okay. The bottom was scalloped using a corner rounder (still waiting for that scallop edge punch from my new SU! demonstrator) and 1/16" whole punch. Attached a piece of Whisper White on the inside of the card so the scallops showed up. Thought it needed something to the left/right of the image panel on the red, but couldn't decide on anything so just left it open. I'm also submitting this for this week's SCS Sketch Challenge (SC244). Hope you're continuing to have a fun and safe holiday weekend! Aloha!

Kim, your cards are amazing - both of them. I like the 'fluffy' flourish on your Christmas card - it's unexpected and fun... and your cherry/chairie card is too cute!
