Dear Santa,

Hello and Happy Thursday!

I tell you the week is just flyin' by!

I have a fun Torendi card to share today!


Have you seen the Pink Paislee Parisian Anthology line that Torendi is carrying?!!!!!


My base is actually an old sheet of velvet/flocked Little Yellow Bicycle.  I snuck in a thickers shape and making memories glittery number stickers...everything else is from the Parisian line...the Ribbon Strips are out of this world...I actually cringed when I cut it :)  Isn't the little Note sweet?  I topped off the collage-y look with a double decker Parisian Anthology Flair!

Here's a little close up:


Did you catch the "Dear Santa,"??!!!!  I did some creative clipping using E.A.D Designs Merry n Bright Stickerz!  Kind of an unexpected 'sentiment'...

Here's card #2 from my Echo Park Paper self-challenge...I managed to crank out a couple of these...using different die cuts {on pop dots} but the same overall design.  I love the contrast of the brown and green....


I'll share my December Daily for Dec 2nd tomorrow:)

Your first card is so striking and oh how I wish I bought the Echo paper! I did pick up CC Circa last night (along with about $50 of other stuff) so I have no self control when it comes to paper craft shopping. I am going to have to change hairdressers so that I am not right next to my LSS!
