I have been really enjoying doing my A to Z Challenge in which I talk about old film stars and I am loving visiting the other posts. Of course dust balls the size of tumbleweeds are floating around my home but next week I shall attack them. I did have time to do some cards and I love Christmas even though this winter has been a long one.

The first card and the 4th card belong to Inspired by a Christmas Carol/Song. My post for the letter I on the A to Z was Burl Ives and I kept singing "Silver and Gold" so I created a card using , well, silver and gold. I love paper and textures and I used my Cuddlebug to make the Poinsettia. The 4th card was also for a challenge I missed (Reason for the Season) but it also reminds me of Away In a Manger. I have these small plastic figures. I repainted them and placed them on the card with big glittery ribbon and used poinsettia's for the corners.

The second card was layered and layered-Love that green paper which is hard to see on the photo but there is no sentiment on it which  I think, still speaks for itself.

The 3rd card has glitter on all the roofs of the houses although it is hard to see plus I used stickles for the berries and to surround the ornament frame. I coloured the home in prisma pencils. I stamped and coloured the poinsettia in prisma pencils again and fussy cut and mounted it on the card. The card, itself, is quite shiny which I love(I must have been a magpie in a previous life). It shows a beautiful little village which is quite homey.

The last card was for a challenge as well that I missed-well 2 challenges-a colour challenge and a design one but I missed it again. Still lots of fun and all these cards have Poinsettias on them for the CCAYL challenge and they are all  Christmas. I am very proud I got this all done during this month. Everyone have fun and if you have not checked out the A to Z challenge you should:)

  6. This is the second time in the past week I've seen something Christmas-y and longed for it to be December! I often like to occasionally blast Christmas music in July, for no other reason than it's just so out-of-place!

    I LOVE those card, by the way. If I were going to take up any hobby besides writing, card stamping would be it, but so much work goes into it. It's amazing. I'm not sure I'd have even close to your talent with it.

    1. My dad loved Christmas and would ask my mom weeks ahead when we could start playing Christmas songs-We have the Bonanza Christmas Album! Stamping is so much fun-Stamp and the image is there-Love it!! I think, if you would start it up you would find you have the talent. Thanks so much for looking:) Everyone here made my day:)
