Back again for some more holiday fun.
This card is for the CASE Study Challenge #14 – taking another stab on the rectangular card format. I had tons of fun going through my scrap pile of patterned paper to finish off this card – with that in mind, I have also decided to enter it in the Wee Memories Challenge #31 (using patterned paper) and the Passion for Papertrey challenge (using scraps).
The Passion for Papertrey couldn’t be more perfect for me at the moment – I have made a commitment to make cards only with my scrap bin (which is overflowing) – I think I may have to warn them about the number of cards I plan on submitting to this challenge! Trying to clear some space for the suitcase full of supplies I’m hoping to bring back to London after a holiday in the states in December!
Without further ado, here is today’s card (the one with the pearl is the finished product, the picture on the right is a little better (pre-pearl!):
I don’t make a lot of Christmas card, but I love this holiday sentiment set from Hero Arts. This card was so simple and quick! I am going to enter it in the Paper Crafts Holiday Card challenge for November.
That’s all for today – busy weekend & unfortunately not much time for card making!
Thanks for visiting!
Paper: card blank (Woodware), cardstock (Papertrey Ink)

One more quick post today.
I was very excited when I saw the Everything but the Kitchen Sink challenge using teal/turquoise, grey and white. I love teal, but don’t use it as much I would like (not sure why!), so I thought no better time than now to dig out the stash of Papertrey Ink Hawaiian Shores paper and get to work. I also used a very neglected stamp set – Papertrey Ink Heart Prints. This is one of the first stamp sets I bought – I do love it and I was reminded of that last night when I made this card.
The sketch is for Get Sketchy Card Challenge #63 – I love this blog and the great sketches – really helps to get the inspiration flowing!
Enough chit chat, here is the card (apologies again for the bad picture – didn’t have any natural light for this one).
Thanks for stopping by!

I did have one slight annoyance this weekend – an unbelievably loud party happening in a neighboring apartment on Saturday night – it was unbearable. Slept on the couch for a few hours, but spent most of Sunday bleary-eyed making cards. I was exhausted by the end of it, but unwilling to give up on all my free time!
This card has also been submitted for an Off The Wall Craftiness challenge – I love the colors Kim has chosen for this challenge (and her blog is full of beautiful creations!).
