The season premier's have been killing my mojo and, I must confess, I have not been in a HOLIDAY/CHRISTMAS mood lately- the weather here is un-seasonably warm and it has left me uninspired to do much Christmas stuff.
These projects were from last year. the first photo is little cards for co-workers, the second it a case from Nicole- they hold little photos from the previous year- I gave these to grandparents and they were a HIT!!
Thanks for peeking!

This week was Dee's pick, use a Halloween stamp and Black, Plum and Summer Sunrise!! She added to use vellum if we felt like it too.
We have added a couple people to our roster who will be helping us do the challenges weekly starting in October. Maria and Wendy- so excited to have them!!!! Wendy is Canadian but Maria is not...we won't hold that against her......much..LMAO, just kidding!!
For my card I used my cuttlebug embossing folder and inked it up. I also used a spider on the base in the same plum colour but you cant really see it. The trees were cut out with a Quikutz die from PTI vellum cardstock and inked.
Don't forget to link up your creations- we all love to see them!!!

I was feeling in an autumn kind of mood when I picked this week's combo, I actually LOVE these colours together. I decided against assigning a stamp set- thought I would leave this one open to interpretation.
For my card I used the Chocolate Remix papers- I love this paper!!!
I used by Cuttlebug to diecut the flowers. I accented with Martha Stewart Opaque pens- which ROCK I have got to tell you!!!! The Stamps are from Beautiful Blooms and Simple Little Things. Buttons and brads are SEI.
