Hugs & Kisses


I hope you are all having a wonderful weekend.  Ours has been um... eventful to say the least!

Today I am playing along in the CASE Study Challenge, to be inspired by this card by Julia Stainton.

I was inspired by the crimped paper, colors and large leafy images and tried to incorporate all of them into my card.  A bit of a nontraditional color combo for Christmas, but I think it works!

I am also entering my card into the CAS-ual Fridays Challenge



We are in the path of Hurricane Sandy which is supposed to arrive here on Monday.  If predictions are correct I will most probably be without power for several days.  I will be preposting my entries for this week.  I hope everyone in the path of the storm is safe!!!  I hope to be back soon!

Stamps:  Mistletoe & Holly (PTI), Country Charm (WPlus9 Design Studio)
Ink:  Lucky Limeade, Pool Party, Early Espresso (SU!)
Paper:  Very Vanilla, Crumb Cake (SU!)
Accessories:  Crimper (Fiskars), Button & Twine (PTI), Corner Rounder (CM)
