Happy Holidays/Christmas....

Hello & Happy Friday Everyone!
YAY! The weekend came back around!
I've had a rough week trying to get back
into the groove of working after being off
a week... I think I'm finally there... 
but now it's the weekend again.... 
so hopefully I'll be okay come Monday! 

I've got my weekly Holiday card to show you -
I made 2 of them.... same design different papers....
I'm not a huge fan with how they turned out -

Sometimes when I get an idea... I go with it
and hope it turns out like I thought.. and sometimes
it does and I'm thrilled... sometimes it's just okay and I
live with it... because..well that's life! 😉

Of course while making these cards - I made a
boo boo... I'm sure you've all been there before
when creating something - So then I had to fix it
and I think that's where I was like... ugh.. whatever!

As you can tell... they are the same... I think the Wink of Stella on the
Happy Holidays shows a little to much... but it was really plain
without something ---

The (Happy Holidays) is a Silhouette File (# 52372)
I cut it out 3x's using adhesive backing to make layering it
easier.... The designer Paper is from Echo Park (I Love Winter)
and I used a Red Wink of Stella Glitter Pen 

The (Merry Christmas) is a Gina Marie Designs die, 
cut out 3x's as well... 
I added Clear Wink of Stella to shimmer it up a little bit...
The Designer Paper is Echo Park (I Love Christmas)

** Other Products Used **

Cardstock - Papertrey Ink, Bazzill, Stampin' UP
Itty Bitty Clear Gems - CTMH
Stitched Card Mat Die - MFT

  7. My dear friend, your cards are perfectly beautiful! (Did you say too much sparkle?! Say what?! Hehe!) Your work always turns out lovely, Theresa. The banners are so pretty in their design.. and of course I love all of the papers you used! Always know that everything you make will brighten the hearts of all who see it. :) I missed you so much while I was away, my friend! Have a wonderful rest of the weekend. :)

  8. Love these -
    They are simple & so cute!!

  9. These are fantastic! Even though they are the same, they look quite different too! I can't see anything wrong so your fix-up seems to have done the trick!!

  10. These are great! You can never have too much sparkle on Christmas cards in my opinion. The great thing about making cards is the person getting them doesn't know what you saw in your head!

  11. These are both really gorgeous! I think you're being too hard on yourself, but you're right- we won't love everything we make, and that's ok! We've created and learned and had fun in the process!

  12. I think the 2 cards are wonderful! The Wink of Stella is always a great addition. =) I hate when I have project I sit and struggle with forever, but make it thru and it's only "ok". Makes me wonder why I kept at it!

  13. Beautiful Christmas cards! You are going to have such a wonderful stash of cards waaaay before Christmas rolls around this year -how awesome! I think the Wink of Stella is great - gotta have that sparkle, especially for Christmas.

  14. Love this! Love all of the layers and patterns... you are really rockin' the Christmas!

  15. Beautiful cards! Love the designs!
