Festive Friday #13

9 Comments

Hi bloggies!

It has been a few weeks since I have done a Festive Friday challenge … due to holidays / work etc. But … the colour challenge this week was irresistible so I just had to play along! Isn’t this a yummy combo!? My inspiration was the snowflakes on a few of the DT sample cards! Nicole is trying to build this challenge … so please will you consider playing along … and getting a start on your Christmas Cards?

I decided to pull out my BRAND NEW Verve stamp set “Glad Tidings” that has some matching dies for the label and the snowflakes! I have been dying to use these for a few weeks! These goodies were a 50th b’day gift from my dear blog friend Lee-Anne. I was so touched when I received an email from Verve to say I had a credit waiting from Lee-Anne! What a sweet surprise! And … the perfect gift! Thank you so much Lee-Anne. You are such a generous and wonderful friend! I managed to get another Christmas ornament set, too … so I will show you that one for another of the Festive Friday challenges!

I am not sure that a CASE is acceptable for a challenge ??? … but I need to acknowledge the inspiration from Michelle Woerner from the Verve Gallery. So perhaps that disqualifies me … but even so … I really had fun using my new goodies! I did change the colours … add a snowflake die to the label … but it is pretty similar to the original! Thanks Nicole for a great combo! Loved this one! Well … it is nice to have the kids home this week (school / uni break) … so I had better go and pay them some attention!! 😉

  4. I have resisted the Island Indigo seeing I have loads of Taken with Teal to use up and it is very similar. This is lovely though. I really need to do some cards… I keep saying “once I have done a few other things that I have put off to the holidays”. Maybe I should make it a priority… Specially that wedding card I need to do!
    Andrea adds: Taken with Teal is very similar to II! Hey sis … perhaps we need to get together to make you do it??? But … I guess it will be tricky with you doing work next week … and Sandy’s op … and minding Bree??? I am finding the stamping is done as I can … rather than regularly each day … now! Hugs xxx PS Maybe Saturday arvo???

  6. I really like this card a lot Andrea….it has a vintagey kind of feel to it. Great gift idea too….must remember that……..
    I (finally) have all the new in colours now…so I guess I have no excuse to procrastinate any further now…do I??? Did I happen to mention how special I think this card is??? ooxx
    Andrea adds: I wish I could take the credit … but I guess it still takes something to CASE a card nicely!???? So glad you have some new goodies to play with! I do like this year’s in-colours! Hugs xxx
