As mentioned previously, I give myself the pass on making our family Christmas cards. As much as I enjoy it, I sort of lose my mind somewhere along the production line. 🙂
Of course, time is even tighter in December, but I kept these very simple and managed them in one sitting. I mailed them out before Christmas, to my teammates! Whoot! 🙂 It’s the little victories!
I was also in a race with the mailman, so I snapped just a few quick photos. 🙂 While these cards are very similar, they are all slightly different. 🙂
Fun with non-holiday supplies! Always fun to stretch what you have in different ways. 🙂
Don’t forget, there is a little time left to participate in Sketch Challenge #260 and over a week left for joining Color Challenge #36 on the My Favorite Things Challenge & Inspiration blog!
My cards are made with the following supplies by My Favorite Things:
Thanks for stopping by today. I have posts coming every day this week. Be sure to stop back! (I’m amazed myself! ha!!) 🙂
Today, Color Challenge #36 is on the My Favorite Things Challenge & Inspiration blog!
Here is my card for this MFT Color Challenge:
The Amazing stamp set is well used here 🙂
I had to bust out the Proof Positive Cover Up. One of my all time MFT faves!
I made a second card with this combo: Winter light is not my photography friend. 😦
I thought this wonky window action would be fun. And the little Alphas from the LLD Bottle Cap Letters set are a fabulous size! 🙂 I went LLD all over this card. 😉
I quite enjoy this color combo! 🙂

MFT Sketch Challenge #260 starts on the My Favorite Things Challenge & Inspiration Blog today! Bop on over to the MFT Card Challenges page to see what the DT made. I can guarantee they all rock. 🙂
This week’s sketch:Here is my first take this week:
I love the pieces out of the newest Diagonal Quilt Square Cover Up. So I die cut a bunch of quilts, then used the pieces. 🙂 I think I stuck a lot tighter to the sketch this week!! Ha! 🙂
I made another card the other night. I had to use this cutie reindeer!!
Between the happy jumping Santa, and this reindeer, this BB Jingle All the Way set earned its way into my heart. 🙂 I think I’m going to add a little sparkle to that bright nose.
I used watercolors for these little cuties. The wood paper warms it up so sweetly. 🙂
(This stamp set is a hot commodity. So if you’re interested in it, and it is not in stock, be sure to sign up for the back in stock notification. It’s just a simple click if you have an MFT account! 🙂 )

MFT Sketch Challenge #259 starts on the My Favorite Things Challenge & Inspiration Blog today! Take a break from the holiday craze and join us! Only a couple left after this one for 2015!
This week’s sketch:Here is my take this week:
Poof! I find this a refreshing take on the Christmas cards. Do you? When I finished this card, I thought, Dang, I think Erin has rubbed off on me! Something about its overall feel reminds me of Erin’s fabulously bold style. 🙂
I originally had the three leafy greens exactly like the sketch has them. It looked awkward, so I took those three sketch elements and bundled them. I love to see when people follow Sketches tightly. (Check out Miriam‘s because she’s really good like that). I sometimes (ok, often) end up tweeking a few things on my cards. 😉
I didn’t get to making another Sketch card, but I did make this fun guy:
I tried soooooooooo long to resist ordering this set, because I felt pretty good about my collection of Christmas stamps. But, I’m weak. This one particular Santa made me order it. Plus, I did not have any Santa stamps. So obviously, it’s justifiable. 😉 😉I clear embossed his outline and then used watercolors to give him color! Too fun! 🙂

Today, Color Challenge #35 is on the My Favorite Things Challenge & Inspiration blog! I hope you can hop on over to see what the rest of the Design Team made. Each person really brings their own unique style to their projects. I eagerly wait to read the posts myself! 🙂Here is my card for this Color Challenge:
The Amazing stamp set is a staple sentiment set. It’s font is simple (my fave!), and therefore can fit gracefully into any card type. And the Stitched Stars STAX is another staple. Products like these, are crafty money well spent in my book because of their versatility. Dig that. 🙂 I have another Color Challenge card waiting to be photographed. So I’ll post that one very soon too. I just can’t get a decent photo without the daylight. And well, it’s 10pm. Haaaa!! See you back for that card soon!

Today, Color Challenge #34 is on the My Favorite Things Challenge & Inspiration blog!
Here is my card for this Color Challenge:
This is a spunky, fresh color combo. I thought this crisp look played nicely for gratitude today 🙂 !I made a second card. This sentiment gets such a workout on my desk. 😉
I thought the sentiment from Penguins in Paradise paired well with this little cutie Penguin from BB Toastly Greetings.Just makes me say awwwwwww. 🙂

MFT Sketch Challenge #255 begins today on the My Favorite Things Challenge & Inspiration Blog! Hope you can find some crafty time and join us! There is a MFT Gift Card waiting to be had! 🙂
This week’s sketch:
Here is my take this week:
I thought this was a fun and WAY different color combo for me. I flipped the sketch, swapped the rectangle for a circle, and put it all together! 🙂I didn’t get around to making a second Sketch card this week. I’ve been trying to get a little ahead and also making MANY cards for friends and family that have been kind enough to help me on my fundraising efforts. I’m so grateful. 🙂
I originally made a card almost identical to these for Sketch #245. 🙂 I’ve made and completed just these cards, so far. They look awesome together! This is typically not my thing, to make many of the same card. But for the right cause(s), I did it! I think the best part is designing the cards and picking the products, so I rarely make doubles+ etc. 😉

Here’s my card for the week:
(This stinker was so oddly challenging to photograph.)
I think these little dies to the Winter Wonderland set are so fun on their own. You get double duty from your die sets this way! 🙂I made a quick tag (& added a little sparkle!) with some of my remaining die cuts. Have I mentioned my love of the Sketched Chevron Background? I think I’ve used it on just about everything since it arrived in my house. LOL 🙂
Don’t forget there is the Handmade Holiday TAG fun to join in over on the MFT Blog.
