SMC Red & Green Challenge

This week SMC's challenge is to create a project with Red & Green, since it's officially "Christmas Time" this challenge is super easy, here's what I came up with:

A close up:

For this card I used the super cute image called Halen Wearing Santa Hat one of the images available in the November VIP. You can't go wrong with the VIP packages there's so many images for $10. I believe it's labels 10 Nestabilities, some bling & the paper is from an old DCWV Christmas matstack. Won't you come join us, just click here to head on over to the blog.

I'm Back... Sew Many Cards Friday Challenge

This time when I say "I'm Back" I think I mean it. Although it's been perhaps one if not the worst couple of weeks in my life I have to get back into the swing of things in order to keep myself sane. My Mom would never want me to sulk or fall into a funk so then that is something I will not do. So when I say "I'm Back" I can honestly say that this time it's for real. So to start myself back into my crafting I have a SMC card to share with a Fall feel:

A closer look:

For this card I used the too cute image called: Morty Pumpkin Spice, isn't he too cute? I also used a new Martha Stewart punch for the vine & the new Spellbinders Lace Circle to put Morty on. The paper is from the Autumn Amber matstack & there's orange metallic paper on the first layer. I do believe Angela will be announcing the new DT soon so be sure to stop by the SMC Challenge Blog to watch for the announcement. Thanks for coming by!
