Christmas before Thanksgiving

Hello my blogging friends. I hope this post finds you all well and happy! I have been busy this week creating, creating and more creating. I finished my November Group Card Swap & here it is. I really like our new Northern Flurry Embossing Folder. You can find it in the Holiday Mini Catalog, lower right hand side of this post. 
The second card was made by the blog candy (Stampin Up stamp set Snow Swirled) I won over at Marilyn San Clementes  blog   during the Royal Blog Hop. I just love this stamp set!  I CASED a card that was one of her cards that she showcased for the hop, but tweaked it a bit to make it my own. Hope you like it Marilyn lolol.

The third card (Front Door) I also CASED but made a few minor alterations to it.  I saw this great card she called "Welcome Home" at . I just love the simplicity of this card. I am really thinking of making these for our Christmas cards, but need a vote from the family still.

 Now I am looking for ideas for Christmas Ornaments to make for an Ornament Swap I am in on December 5th. I have to make 22 of them Yikes. I want to make them cost effective but still showcase the creativity of Stampin Up products and there versatility. I saw the red a red and green double paper ornament on SCS then I made the single green one as my own design.
But, I really like the fancy flower ball ornament I have seen on SCS , the name of the type of paper fold slips my mind at the moment. I am going to give it a try this weekend. I'll show you later what I come up with.
Well I hope you enjoy today's post as much as I did in making these fun cards and ornaments. Now it is your turn, go and create something fun. Be safe and drive safely. It is wet over here in California.
