My Busy Card Day

Good evening!
As I stated in my previous entry, I was a busy little bee on Saturday in my craft room. While my DH was up in the hills on one of our ATV'S I decided to work at home in my craft room. Don't get me wrong, I love to ATV too, but it was about 30 really my husband is crazy!

I was quite pleased in all I got done!

This card I made first. It is very simple and cute. The supplies are SU paper, Creamy Caramel, Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive, Ruby Red, & Naturals Ivory. The stamps set is Pocket Silhouettes. I just used my circle punches and oval punches and voila! Very simple. I made a total of four.

We have snow (finally), so that is the inspiration behind this card. Once again SU supplies. The paper is SU Baja Breeze, and Not Quite Navy. The stamp set is Season of Friendship. I absolutley love this set...It is one of my faves!! This card was quite simple as well. I just pop dotted a few circle punched snowflakes and added a little stickles ( I am not sure you can see it in the photo). I added a little ribbon..and BAM! another card done! I made 4 0f these too.

Lastly, I decided to make some satchels like we made on the cruise in Gina K.'s class. I made 2 of each style for Cristmas gifts. I am really happy on how they turned out. I just found some coordinating 12X12 paper and used my cuttlebug to emboss the cards. The border stamp from the circles is actually out of our DIY monogram kit we got on the cruise from Just Rite. I must say they did turn out just rite!!! The seniments on the card and satchel are SU Lot's of Thoughts. The paper is all SU, in the left photo I used, Baja Breeze, Pale Plum and Certainly Celery. The right photo is Mellow Moss, Pale Plum and Perfect Plum.
These were a blast to make! I pretty much followed Gina's layout and even added magnets! (Which I ordered from Gina K after the cruise, I need to order more now...I LOVE them!!)
Well, I hope you all had a wonderful Holiday! I hope you have enjoyed looking at my busy bee day...Maybe it inspired you to get in your craft room, as many of you have inspired me from your blogs!!

Gorgeousness!! And shut up~~~you actually learned something on the cruise. I think I talked too much and I honestly don't think one single item got finished on the cruise and it's all still in bags. Yikes!
