Hello! Today, I have TWO cards to share. Now don't faint. LOL I know I have been slacking on my blogging lately - I really have NO excuse except every day busy-ness and just not making a priority. I will strive to be better.

My first card I decided to keep very SIMPLE - Aren't you shocked? No layers! I almost wanted to yell from the roof tops - look Mom! No layers!!! LOL

This cardstock is from Creative Cuts and More and I used the Bazzill Criss Cross - this uses the A7 Fancy Frame Window Card. I just love the fact that Creative Cuts and More has so many options and ideas for us with precut cardstock it helps me to think outside the box yet make quick cards!

Here are the details:
Stamp Set: Trees of the Field by Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps
Cardstock: Bazzill Criss Cross from Creative Cuts and More (see above)
Accessories: Rub ons - SU, Chocolate Twill ribbon, buttons, linen thread, Gold Painty, Glue Dots

Now.... for another card...using another tree! I loves Trees they make for such a versatile card...

As you read in yesterdays post - I am a Guest Designer for Firecracker Designs By Pamela! This card uses the beautiful tree from the Just Breathe stamp set...

I used the Herringbone Technique from the December - January Technique Junkies Newsletter. I think that is one of my new favorites! Look for another card using this technique next week here.

Here are the details for you...

Stamp Set: Just Breathe from Firecracker Designs by Pamela, Stitching from Hot off the Press
Cardstock: Boxer Basic Grey, Confetti Cream, Navy, Dusty blue, Artichoke,
Accessories: SEI Brads, Twill, Artichoke stitched ribbon, Dimensionals, Copics

Tomorrow is the BELLI CHALLENGE day, so be sure to come back and check that out. Enjoy the Christmas Season! Thank you for stopping by! Merry Christmas!!!

Love both of your cards. I know what you mean about busy-ness....It abounds at the Jones household.
