What a fun card this was to make! And it’s Simply Made! 🙂  I used Stampin’ Up! cardstock, Real Red and Garden Green, my two favorite Christmas colors……..if you don’t count blue;)   Anyway, I used Spellbinders dies for my circles, for the tags, I used Stampin’ Up! Tiny Tags stamp set with matching punch.  Using my little SU tag punch, I also punched out some FSS blue paper.

For my main image I used a pre-colored digital image by Fred She Said called Snow Lady – Light Up Your Holidays. This set includes the DIGI and Pre-coloured versions ( JPGs and PNGs ) + ready-to-print sheets. There are a bunch more new images to see at the FSS store, check them out! 🙂
If you go to The Fred She Said blog, you will find lots of info regarding contests, new images and sometimes Freebies! 🙂  Keep scrolling for my Freshly made card made with another Fred She Said image! 🙂

Your next stop on the hop is Patricia’s blog.

Freshly Made had another “easy” sketch this week.  Sometimes the easy ones are just as hard as the complicated ones, but this week I knew just what I wanted to do!  Here is this weeks sketch:
This card was pretty simple, I’m sure you could do it! 🙂  Here is the card I made, you can click on it to make it larger:
I used all Stampin’ Up! products except the center of the flower, and Tracey’s beautiful Poinsettia.  This flower is just gorgeous!  It doesn’t look to fancy when you pull up the file, but once you have it printed off, you can really see the beautiful colors.  Of course, its by Fred She Said and it’s called Pointy Poinsettia Flowers. If you scroll down a little in the store, you’ll find a cutfile version in B&W ready for you to color yourself! 🙂
Be sure to check out the rest of the Fred She Said links and look at what everyone else has made for you to see!  Also check out the Freshly Made blog!
Thanks for coming by today! 🙂  I hope you have a great weekend, and good luck on the Blog Hop!!! 🙂
