Red, White & Green



I've been trying to get some card sets made up in preparation for the Art in the Park event in a couple of weeks and this week's Just Us Girls challenge to use red, green and white came along at just the right time to help me out.  In my Christmas stash I found some red, green and white Pebbles stickers so I paired them with the sentiments from PTI's Tremendous Treats and some Nestabilities to make a cute set of coordinating cards.  I even had two sets of the stickers so there's 2 sets of cards done and dusted!
I spent the afternoon hanging out with Franklin.  He's moved out of the sleepy puppy phase into the manic toddler phase!  And he's getting so big!

I know it should be cards first, but Franklin is just so CUTE! You can almost see him growing in the pictures. :D
Now, the cards... are perfect! Simple and sweet. (Probably not so simple to make, but you know what I mean.) I think my favourite is the stockings, I love the offset outline and colour.

Not only Christmas cards but two sets as well! Those stickers are the best... And as you say perfect for the colour combo. Me likey very much :0)

Wonderful cards, Jen. I love the simplicity of the design and fun touch of bling. I don't usually go for stickers, but these look great with the Nestie frames!

Getting ready for big events is when I whip out all the quick tricks I can find - so the last-minute Lucy in me is cheering for some quick stash-growing cards :) lol
Funny, I feel this colour combo is one I'm not using much this year - maybe I should actually use gee, the traditional colours maybe?
Franklin's adorable, but you already knew that. I love his winkie pic!

Thanks for the reminder that stickers can be just as fun on cards as stamps! Those Pebbles stickers are so cute.

Speaking of cute -- that puppy is adorable!! I love the name "Franklin," too. Have fun with the chewy toddler phase!

What lovely holiday cards! I like how they are so clean and simple. And the doggie is adorableee! More doggie pictures please! :)

P.S. In response to your question, I was more 'N SYNC than BSB. I didn't include that in my blog post because I'm too embarrassed to admit I actually listened to that music (and still do...).
