Merry Mondays and Red Hot Stampers Sketch Challenge

Hello to all my blogging friends. I hope this post finds you all well and happy!

I have those cards for you . The first one is for our Christmas Card Challenge over at Merry Mondays #6 http://alwaysplayingwithpaper.blogspot.com/2012/02/merry-monday-challenge-6-february-is.html
This was such a fun sketch to play with and this is what I came up with;
Not much on stamping but lots of other creative elements to it! Embossing Folder, paper piecing and cut away.
Now here is a look at the inside;

I continued the berry theme on to the inside as well. Sometimes the  DSP can make a beautiful card all by it's self!
I really love all the Christmas cards everyone has been making so far this year. You must stop by the Merry Monday web site and see them! In addition, the Guest Designers are really doing a super job inspiring us. Thanks Ladies!

My next card is for the Red Hot Stamper Sketch Challenge #22. http://www.redhotstampers.blogspot.com
This is a new sketch Challenge site I found by visiting Robbie Rubula's blog my Sketch Frenzy Friday DT member line up buddy. Thanks Robbie for the great Red Hot Tip (smile)! You should stop by and play along with them as they have some very cleaver sketches.
Here is their sketch;
Here is my take on this great CAS sketch;
Again, I let the DSP do all the work with the help of some punches , Embossing Folders, Ribbon, beautiful Pearls and a brad that I added a Pearl on to. Here  is a look at the inside.
 Wow, that's strange notice how the Brown DSP looks Black? I must have hit a button? Jeff keeps telling me buttons are not toys lololol!  It is interesting what a difference shading/color/focus/lighting and the time of day can make on a picture and how it affects a card. This card is made with very warm  shades of Brown and Cream CS. 
Guess I better go back and re-take the picture! Yesterday was clear and nice, today it looks and feels like it is going to rain.

Well I tried, but it's not perfect.Maybe I will try again in the am. I so have to replace my Ott light!!!!!!

That's all for me right now.  I hope you have time to create something fun today.

Great cards. You sure were funny the other night when you called me. Was it a butt dial?
