One set...one idea...two cards

Good morning all! Sorry I've been away for a couple of days. I have cards to show you but have been pretty busy so today...you get two!

I belong to a couple of demonstrator groups on Yahoo and when the idea for the wreath on the right came through I knew I had to try it. You all know that I love fall so it was natural for me to make that one. First the stamp set is Pocket Silhouettes (just $18.95!). Some Pumpkin Pie, Crushed Curry, and Dusty Durango along with the sign make this a wonderful Thanksgiving card. I decided I would like to try one for Christmas too so out came the Real Red and some of the Shimmer Paint that you can purchase in the Stampin' Up! Holiday Mini. I added some white Taffeta ribbon and a Fire Rhinestone brad for some bling. I also stamped it on Shimmery White paper so it is all pretty and frosty looking...love it!

I'm working on my card for the 3 Clover Designs challenge right now. I was sure I was going to be able to come up with something but it is working and I'm happy with my (almost) end results. Then on Friday I'll have my first Blogger's Challenge card for ya. Yep, I joined another challenge site. You know I love them and really I find they grow me in my stamping so that is good too!

So far...the three of us that are up in my house are all having some sinus issues. Could it be that the weather was 75 yesterday went down to 40 something and is supposed to go up to 90 today? Sheesh! That's enough to make anyone sick! I just wish the weather would level out a little but this is typical for this time of year around here.

And one last thing...if you are reading this and are a part of my stamp club our order is.... Yippee, huh!

Alright, have a super day everyone! See ya soon!

Great job on the wreath cards. Super cute! Our weather saying here in Indiana is "Wait 5 minutes and it will change!" LOL Every day is a sinus day for me. Make it a wonderful day!

Thanks for the comment on the Divas, Lorie! I LOVE your little wreath cards---I have made some similar, but I love that you used Pocket Silhouettes! I will have to try them! And where did you get that little UPS truck avatar? What a hoot!
