Happy Thanksgiving Weekend! Hope everyone enjoyed turkey, family and if you're like me avoided the mall! I'm happy to report that I did succeed in avoiding all Black Friday shopping, the glass of wine I drank in a wine tasting room doesn't count as shopping. Oh-- and I rode the go carts at the local amusement park, that doesn't count as shopping either, right? I did manage to visit a local artisan fair (where I didn't buy anything either), but click here to see those photos. After I cleaned my craft room the other day it was a little intimidating to come back in and make a mess... The top tag is for The Card Concept challenge and so excited about all of Tracey's 25 Tags of Christmas. My tag is definitely a CAS tag (a little distress ink, some embossing paste snowflakes, a vellum snow bank, May Arts ribbon).
And this card is for the Viva La Verve sketch, I did so well last month playing along, not sure what the issue in November was.... So below was my first attempt. I bought the Pebbles Happy Day paper on a whim the other day and decided to channel my friend Lynn and use more patterned paper. What I don't like about the card blow is that it's too flat and a bit too busy for me. But the card above-- you know me and coffee... I think I have to be strategic if I want to use 4 different patterned papers (maybe smaller sizes?). But kinda fun to use the same sketch and the same pad of patterned papers and have two totally different cards. I like the coffee one a lot more.
