Two Cards I've Made this Week (and some good news!)

I have a couple of cards to share with you today that I have made this week! :)

This first card is for the Pretty Little Studio Think Outside the Box challenge. I really liked the colors of this stocking, so I used them for my Thank You card. I got to use some of my NEW Cosmo Cricket "Clementine" mini deck that I got from my scrappy Secret Santa!


And then this card is for the Frosted Designs Card Challenge. I loved this sketch, and I really needed to make one last Christmas card for a friend, so I used the sketch to make it! It made it so much easier!

I got a new woodgrain embossing folder from Hobby Lobby and I wanted to try it out. AWESOME! I love it! It's Hobby Lobby brand, but it works just like a Cuttlebug or Sizzix folder. It's great. I would highly recommend this folder to anyone- the texture looks great on kraft paper. I got to use my new October Afternoon paper and goodies on this card too! (Good Cheer line)



And my GOOD NEWS...
One of my card was spotlighted on the Jillibean Soup blog! YAY! Check it out here.

Love this card! The wood-grain background is amazing - I may have to get this folder for myself!

WOW! I agree, the wood grain embossing folder is great! I'm going to have to check out the Hobby Lobby in my area for their folders! Thanks for that info! You did a super job with our sketch! Luv the mug and the swirl of steam coming from it, very cute! So happy to have you play along with us at Frosted Designs. Aloha, Joanne.
