I wanted to be sure and tell you about the Fred She Said Party over on the FSS blog! 🙂  Be sure to check it out for some great giveaways!

Now I have three cards to share! 🙂  I’ve already entered one at Merry Monday #88, but I think I can enter one more:) I’ve given all the cards away, so I will have to post details as I remember them.

Here’s their challenge:

MM New Look Sketches-021Here’s my first card:

Poster3This is a very simple card, but I love it!  I know my DIL checks out my blog now and then, so I have to ask her to not tell Matthew this is his card;)  I got the background from Raspberry Road Designs.  It’s called Blue Christmas Paper Set.  There are other Blue Christmas sets to match, including a freebie:)  Right now they are having a 50% off sale, so hurry over there!

Anyway……I picked out the paper and thought about what I would do next.  I flipped the image, and knew the deer would be perfect!  The deer are a Memory Box die called Deer Trio.  I cut them apart and placed them in the “snow”, I glued them down with sticky dots, not pop ups.  Then I looked at it a few days and thought about what I wanted to add.  I decided I didn’t want to add anything;)  It’s clean and simple, and I love it, I hope my grandson will too! 🙂

My next two cards are alike in that they use a technique called Starburst , I found the technique instructions here.  My next card:

Half-fold Card2I just couldn’t get the colors right for this photo, at least not to my satisfaction;)  But the card is gone so I had to do the best I could to present it.  The papers are from imaginisce, the series was called Polar Expressions.  I had a number of the papers and some chipboard stickers.  The bear is a chipboard sticker that is popped up with Stamin’ Up!,  Stampin’ Dimentionals.  I bought it several years ago, but I still love it! 🙂  I used the fronts and the backs of the papers to make my Starburst.

Last card for tonight:

Half-fold Card1Now the colors in this photo look awesome and I don’t know why, I took the photos one after the other.  This card uses a chipboard sticker from the previous pack of stickers, but the paper is something I found on ESTY.  I am so sorry to say I don’t remember where on ESTY:(  It was listed as Christmas paper, but it looked a little Spring like to me.  Finding Cardinal papers was almost impossible!  I do love how it turned out though! 🙂 I attached the Cardinal with glue dots.

Well, I’m off to get more done.  The grandkids will be home from school for two weeks, so I have to use my time wisely…..if that’s possible;) lol

Thanks for coming by today, I hope you’ll come again! 🙂  Be sure to check out all my links for special deals! 🙂

In case I don’t get back, please have a safe, peaceful, and very Merry Christmas!!!! 🙂
