Sneak Peek: Christmas Card Swap

Ooh - Mojo Monday took the week off and I guess I lost my mojo! Between Gabe's freakouts over Kindergarten and getting everyone settled into the new routines, my poor stamp pad upstairs was super neglected this week. I did get to hang with my scrapbook club gals on Friday and that invigorated me into getting started on the 1st of four cards I'm doing for my friend Tina Lovell's swap this month. I love it when the scrappers are here!

The card itself was inspired by a circle card I saw on Pinterest done by a talented gal named Shari Carroll. Her lovely scattering of circles down one side of the card made me think of the new Countdown set that was already sitting on my desktop (since I'm working on a adorable Advent Calendar box...coming soon!). I cut out all the circles and that scalloped/punched border with my new Cricut and CTMH's awesome Art Philosophy Cartridge. I added some extra bits of the new Believe papers that weren't in the original design and a lot of the new red Glitter Glitz gel plus BLING! I used pearls, 2 kinds of Sparkles, and one of the fabulous new Bling Buttons, which I love more than chocolate. OK, not more than chocolate, but it's a pretty tight race.

More cards and artwork is coming - I feel the creativity wheels a-turnin' again!

I love how you took simple design elements and combined them to make something special. This is going into my CASE file for sure.

Merry Christmas to you and yours,
