Bewitching Pumpkins and Snow Swirled



I told myself I was not going to do anymore Christmas until after Halloween, but I just love this set so much and I heard it "calling to me"!!

The pink Christmas card was made with my favorite SU cardstock Pink Pirquette and whisper white. I used the new Big Shot from SU with the Top Note Die. Kiwi Kiss was the ink, and of course the swiss dots embossing folder from Cuttlebug had its part, too! Its simple, but elegant I think and I am one card closer to my goal!

The second card I used a House Mouse stamp from Stampabilities called Bewitching Pumpkins. This is one of those cards, that sometimes you go too far on and should have left it as is, but once you do it its too late to go back. What I am talking about, is I got the bright idea to add some glitter with my glitter pens and after I did it, well, just didn't really care for it. I almost trashed it, but I had put about an hour into it already and thought "well heck, its not like I am going to be graded on it or anything." So here is the finished result.

I am working on a mini pizza box to show next and these awesome spiders I saw on SCS...so stop back tomorrow!!

Yes-I know, I am having a bad time with the whole blog set up thing!! As you can tell from my boring screen and all-I have tried to figure out how you all have added such neat things-but can't figure it out-so I guess that is the way it will stay for now! : )
So, do you sell su? Cuz I would love to get that stamp!!! I absolutely love it! Thanks!
