Merry Christmas

Wishing all of you a blessed Christmas and a year of peace & joy.  Started my day on Christmas Eve having breakfast with a friend & then spent a quiet day with hubby & Fritz.  Here are 3 more cards--Christmas & Thank You.
First up is truly a snippets card which I'm entering at The Snippets Playground.  I had a few little strips of LF plaid paper left over from a project & just couldn't throw them out.  I saw a card using this Stamplorations stencil & it inspired me to make a funky, graphic Christmas tree.
I watercolored a scrap with a brown Zig for the trunk & added a star gem from my stash.  The Stickles covered die cut word is W&W & the mat is dark brown.  Fun & different for me!  I'm also entering Christmas Kickstart & Inkspirational.

Next is another entry for the Pinkfresh December challenge, if more than 1 is allowed.  Again I used the PF Delicate Wreath stamp set, but this time I made a Christmas thank you card.
The inks are Altenew & the sentiment is from the same set.  The little dots are Christmas Red Stickles & I added some tiny green splatters.  I'm also entering the CAS on Friday DT call.

My second thank you card is my entry for the Altenew Year in Review Challenge.  I missed the November challenge with beautiful pinks & green, so that was my inspiration.  I also wanted to use the stamp/die set I recently got with a gc--Floral Frame.

The branches were stamped in PTI Ripe Avocado & colored with Prima Confections green watercolor.  I white embossed the bouquet & mixed Prima Confections watercolors to get as close as I could to the pinks in the photo.  The sentiment from the set was stamped in Versafine Clair Acorn & I added brown splatters with a Zig.  I don't use a lot of foam tape these days, but did use it to add the die cut bouquet.  Decided against embellishments & just added Star Dust Stickles to the little berries.  Think this set was a good choice--so pretty & versatile.  I'm also entering Allsorts & WAW.

  19. A gorgeous trio of cards Greta. I like that you are continuing the Christmas theme. Sometimes think, that immediately after Christmas, when the festivities are done and dusted, would be a good time to make the cards for next year. Especially like the funky tree.
