Barb Murphy has a really cool challenge going on at her blog Kinsale Creations (I can promise you awesome inspiration on her blog!) - it's a photo inspiration challenge and this is my take on it. (see photo below) I will also enter this card for the non traditional Christmas card challenge at Create and the Bah Humbug Challenge at Just Add Ink; "This week's challenge is to make a Christmas project but with NO Christmas paper, NO Christmas images (Christmas sentiment allowed)"
I used both my spellbinder dies and my silhouette die cutting machine so I could enter this card for the "use dies" challenge at Young Crafters Unite. and at Bunny Zoe's the challenge is "Anything Christmas with pearls"!

Yeay, it is Saturday and time for new fabulous inspiration from the Waltzing Mouse Sketch challenge. Here's this week's great sketch and my take on it. I think placecards have to be fast and easy to make so I simply used my silhouette to cut out the cardbase and then diecut mittens with my old but great QK dies and then stamped and distressed them. The stamp I used for my mitten is from my favorite Christmas set all time; Nordic Winter - it is absolutely wonderful. Head over to the WMS challenge blog for wonderful inspiration from the other Mischief Makers and to join in the challenge for a chance to win a set Waltzing Mouse Stamps.
I'm entering this card for the challenge at Young Crafters Unite; to use dies.

Here's a card I made for my post on Cili in Papers using the new wonderful leaf dies she has from Cherry Lynn, but first of all I want to say THANK YOU to Perrin for being such a thoughtful, wonderful friend. I'm so lucky I got to know her when she moved here with her family a few years ago. Unfortunately they moved back last spring and I miss her so much. Not only is she the sweetest friend she is also the most generous person I know - guess what I got in the mail last week, along with things for Ted and Mikael too - a set of the most adorable Thanks Giving wooden stamps from Imaginice. (Think she knows me quite well (-: )
So this card is for you Perrin!
I was inspired by the following challenges:
Colors from Play Date Cafe
Theme; Thankful for Fall; Paper Issues, Creative Card Crew and Thanks Giving from Our Craft Lounge and Create.

Edited 24th of December:
After having gone through my blog back and forth I finally settled on this as my favorite kraft card (those of you who follow my blog know that I use krsft quite often... so there were a lot of projects to choose between) of the year. I just love how simple this card was to make, how beautiful stamps come off on kraft and these
colors are true favorites of mine.
Merry Christmas hugs from me.

I don't have any of Lawn Fawn's new beautiful Christmas sets - but ooooh how I wish I did - they are super sweet. I love the set I have though- the Critters in the Forest so I made a Christmas Card using them instead so I could enter the challenge over at Two Peas in a Bucket for a chance to win some wonderful LF stamps.
And since Vicky at Clips n Cuts is the one who introduced me to these fabulous stamps and is always such a GREAT inspiration I'm entering her "Inspired by Vicky Christmas Card challenge".
The bauble and Santa's hat are from PaperSmooches "Swanky Snowdudes" and the cloud background is Hero Arts. I'm also entering this card for the Christmas challenge at ABC DT and the "Let it Snow" challenge at Crafter's Companion
Have a wonderful day, hugs, Karin
