Hello, friends! I can't believe we are in the final days leading up to Christmas...I have always loved the excitement and anticipation in these days leading up to "the big day!" I feel like a kid again, and I thoroughly enjoy the anticipation of that magical eve and morning.
I am also SO happy to have a break from work and school and sports and activities...nothing more enjoyable than a week off to spend having fun with family and friends. (With all the recent events in Connecticut, I am especially grateful for this gift.) Let the fun begin!
So, I'm sneaking in some cards in between wrapping gifts and last minute shopping. The cue word for this week's CASology challenge is STAR, and I couldn't wait to play along!
Since they are Christmas cards, I am also linking them up to the Simon Says Stamp Challenge.
Both cards use stars cut with Spellbinders dies and Bazzill Christmas-themed patterned papers. My first card uses a Hero Arts sentiment and a very tiny pearl in the center of the smallest star.
My second card uses a cream card-base with a faint gingham pattern stamped in Soft Vanilla shadow ink. The star is dry embossed using a Sizzix "argyle" embossing folder; the sentiment is an old woodblock stamp I had in my stash from Morning Star.
Just a reminder that I have a little giveaway going on until December 23rd, when I will draw a random winner. Check it out HERE.
Thanks again for stopping by...take good care!
