JOLLIEST TIME OF THE YEAR....WELL, NOT YET!

But, it's comin' - LOL! Hope you all had a fabulous weekend! It went by really fast, I can't believe it's Monday already! I have three more cards to show you from my class, this one using the Christmas set Jolliest Time of the Year which I totally love because it is so whimsical. The first one I used the snowman image with my Pacific Point ink and card stock - I did not think I would like this color, but I am really beginning to see how pretty it really is! It looks great with the new Dp in the holiday mini called Frosty Day (perfect for the snowman!) and the Kiwi Kiss Card stock. The ribbon is also Kiwi Kiss. I used the sentiment from the Hostess Level I set called Best Yet - totally great because it has all sentiments in it which you can never have enough of in my book!
The second card uses the tree image from the same set, but stamped in Kiwi Kiss. It is stamped on Whisper White and I added some Tangerine Tango with my blender pen to make the tree stand out. Same sentiment, but this time I added a little bit of Bashful Blue grosgrain ribbon to contrast with the vivid blue of the base card stock plus it goes nicely with that yummy dp! The third card also uses the Christmas Tree image, but I added a Top Note in Riding Hood Red - love this die cut, can't get enough of it, it just makes everything look better! I actually cut another one using Whisper White, cut it in half, trimmed the perforated edge off, and added that to the top to stamp the image on while leaving the red trim - purdy, huh?! And, of course, you cannot go wrong with Old Olive grosgrain, love, love, love it!!! The sentiment is also from the Jolliest Time of the Year set and is stamped in Pacific Point classic ink. It looks really rich on the red, much better IRL! So, I hope you all like these three - I will be back with three more tomorrow! Today I will be in my craft room all day preparing for the Salmon Festival this weekend where I will have a booth - whoohoo!! Only thing is, I have very little to have IN my booth at the moment so I have a feeling I will be quite busy this week - LOL! Off to get to work - smooches!
