Happy Weekend and a Reminder

It's really Saturday again? I'm running out of time before I need to send out Christmas cards. If all goes well, I'll have some cards that will hold my kids school photos to send out to family completed and few more cards and/or gift card holders for my Helping Hands fundraiser (Tuesday is my last chance to help out!), but most of all to be able to relax with my family.

The Stampendous Impressions Design Team is putting on another Saturday hop of inspiration for the December monthly challenge. This month's challenge is to choose any three colors, in any shade you choose.
CREAM, PINK, GOLD and/or BROWN. It's as simple as that! It starts the first Saturday of the month and this color challenge ends on Thursday, January 5, 2012 11:59pm EST There will be one lucky winner randomly chosen who will receive the new Amore Frame Perfectly Clear set. Yep, add your creation(s) on the inLinkz gadget at the bottom of this post!

So my inspiration for the challenge this week was CAS! I've been working on some multi-layered projects and needed to not only add some depleting Thank You cards to my stash, but just be quick.

CRS5003 Cling Jumbo Thank You

I know it's a busy month for all of us so it's possible that there just doesn't seem to be enough time to play, but consider this a sweet little reminder that we would love to have you play along this month if you get some craft time.

I put this card together in a jiffy. The fabulous Cling Jumbo Thank You stamp is SOOOO nice and big that's all this card needed! Here's how this card dwindles down and I mean that you'll see why.

I started by cutting the pattern paper from Tapestry's Vintage pack and sized it wrong, so I cut a bit more off of it. (dwindling...) Then, the last cut grabbed the paper and tore it a bit in the corner...dwindling... so I distressed the edges with my scissors...dwindling... I got out my old Janome sewing machine and started to stitch around the edges and the foot folded over more of the edges ...dwindling complete. The base and distressed edges are sponged with Creamy Caramel and the Thank You sentiment is stamped with a freshly re-inked Creamy Caramel pad just to make sure it's nice and solid!

So here are the fabulous ladies that will give you miles of inspiration for the December Color Challenge. Please be sure to stop in and tell them hi!



I hope your in your craft room more than holiday traffic or waiting in check out lines this weekend!
