holiday cheer...

Hello and Happy Wednesday...half way through the work week...woot woot!!!

I have a couple cards to share with you...

I'm sooo lovin' this October Afternoon paper...


This card is actually chock full of goodness....October Afternoon paper, SRM sentiment, ZVA Flourish, Stampin' Up feltie snowflake, Queen & Co pearl and tons of stitching:)

I was inspired by CPS197:


Here's another card that I whipped together...I'm sooo behind on the Xmas cards so I'm making up some New Years cards...


The A Muse sentiments says:

Wiishing you laughter and cheer
throughout the year

I decided to also do a 'flat' design...The other day I spent over $100 in postage on bumpy cards...only 2 of them were international and the rest were domestic...crazy...okay, so I haven't been going to the US Post Office...I've been going to a mail service place...it's more expensive BUT there aren't any lines....Anywho's, the twine was a RAK from Karen B...thanks!!!

I was inspired by Jay Gee's Nook Challenge #2:


Just a reminder that Flashback Friday 6.0 will be posting THIS Friday...you won't want to miss it...Yvonne picked a GOOD challenge AND we have a sue-pah Sponsor!!!


See ya tomorrow...

Holy Moly! 100$ in postage? Yikes! You are too funny! My husband is a mail carrier and I keep trying to get deals from him but to no luck!

Wowza....stunning cards today!!! I love the first one a little more though...only because I can't resist anything OA!!

OMG...did you say $100??? and did you say it was on shipping? another OMG!!! that's 4 PTI sets. The US Post Office should cut you some kind of commission check!

Jay Gee said...

Lovely cards Amy. I love the way you use bold colours and patterns and then add beautiful details, as you did in the first card. The doily on the second card is fabulous and the stitching and twine are the perfect touch. Thank you so much for joining us at Jay Gee's.
