Christamas Greetings!

Wow - It's been a while! To say I've been run off my feet wouldn't be far off from how I feel, but it also wouldn't be totally true. I've been lacking some crafting mojo in a big way (and now it's left me in a bind with the Christmas season upon us). Anyways, I'm hosting the Christmas Card with a Stamped Background Challenge over at The Sisterhood of Crafters and figured it would at least get me motivated to start stamping. :)
I used the Mojo Sketch 271 as my starting point for the Merry and bright card. The color combination is the current CR84FN Color Challenge #68 of Burgundy, Grey and Cream. The second card, Christmas Greetings, uses the Sweet Sunday Sketch #173 and the Dynamic Duos Challenge #32 of Rose Red and Pretty in Pink.

Both of the cards feature Verve stamps - Bright Spirits and Poinsettia Christmas.

I hope your holidays have been merry and bright. I just got back from a weekend spent as my Grandma's Christmas present, which I think she quite enjoyed. Last night, MrP and I took our winter sporting gear over to a local ski hill for the second trip to the hill this season. I must say, being back on my snowboard has been a blast! I can't wait to get out to Jasper in January with some friends.

Other than that, I've been beat down with a cold for a while now, hosted the Sixth Annual Treat Exchange to some fabulously delicious results, and have been trying to figure out how Christmas managed to yet again sneak up on me :)


  1. WOW these are both fabulous Tanny ... I can't choose a favorite (I tried! LOL) I hope your mojo is restored soon (I miss you) and you also find time for a little R&R! Happy Holidays to you my friend ... hang in there!

  2. Yeah, a Tanny post :) Way to rock all those challenges! Just LOVE those dangling ornaments on the Mojo sketch!! Think that is one of the few Verve sets I don't own LOL! Great use of the poinsettia flower on the second. No lack of Mojo from this side of the screen :)

    Glad you are having fun re-aquainting yourself with your board! Carve a few turns for me!

  3. you came back with a pair of lovely Christmas cards! That pink one really speaks to me! So glad you're having fun...that's what it's all about! Merry Christmas!

  4. Hey girl! My goodness these cards are super fabulous! I LOVE LOVE LOVE the pink one *swoon*!!! Hope you feel better soon!

    On another note, my sister may be moving to Calgary (she's waiting to hear about a job) so I may be out in your neck of the woods at some point - I'll keep you posted if that happens. I would love to do a foodie visit!!!
    Take care!
