Hi there! I had a little time to work on cards today and I started out by playing along with the design at Freshly Made Sketches. I wanted to use some non-traditional Christmas colours so I dug out this ancient 12x12 sheet of Adornit paper and used it on the card base. Then I tried to match my Copics to some of the colours from the paper and used them for the ornaments. I added clear Wink of Stella to the ornaments and some Stickles to the baubles around his neck. After going through all my Christmas sentiments I finally decided that the retro font of this one from Lawn Fawn worked well with the style of the reindeer.

Next I played along with Anita's gorgeous card at Muse. I was inspired by the overlapping leaf dies and it gave me the perfect opportunity to use these gorgeous leaves that were sent to me by the lovely Joyce. I made a whole bunch of cards with this sentiment a while back and I'm glad I was reminded of it - I think it's a good one for a lot of occasions.

Finally, I recently got a couple of Winnie & Walter stamp sets and wanted to play along with some of their World Card Making Day challenges. In the end I only had time to play along with one and chose Heather's Pinspiration challenge. I love the yellow, black and white on that gorgeous cake. I used a flower and leaf from two different sets and realized those sets don't have any sentiments so I used a Mama Elephant stamp and die cut to create the Happy Birthday. The scalloped panel is also W&W. I'm going to make a few more of these in different colours - I think they'd make a fun set!
That's it for now. Hope your week gets off to a wonderful start!
