 My Card Club ladies met on Saturday and we made Christmas themed cards (just in time for this blog hop!).  We all had a great time and several ladies ordered their Christmas Card making supplies.  Here are the images of the 3 cards that we made.  Enjoy and feel free to post any questions you might have.
This card also has Vanilla Shimmer Smooch Spritz, but it's hard to see in the photo.

Hop along for more inspiring ideas from Gina, www.cardsbyginashaw.com , stop number 14 on the Winter Holidays PALS HOP!  Thanks for "hopping" by!

November Calendar

I fell in love with the Falling Leaves set at Convention this year (we just used it to make color charts, but I loved the leaf patterns) and I've put it to good use.  I created my own patterned paper to use as the background by stamping the leaves randomly in Rich Razzleberry, Not Quite Navy, So Saffron and Garden Green.  I love the look!  I then stamped and cut out several of the leaves and glued them to a piece of twine to string across the front.  I was pleased with the final result. 

My September card club also made a card with their own created "patterned paper" with this stamp set, but unfortunately my resident photographer lost those photos and I don't have any more of those cards!  Oh well, I still love him :)
