Christmas Cards - 2nd Card In CTMH Pear and Partridge Cardmaking Kit

Hi fellow crafters and readers.  I hope everyone is having a fantastic day and enjoying their weather whatever season you are having. It has been in the 90's in the past few days; but we finally have fall weather today with rain.  Yeah!! I hope the hot weather stays away for a few months.  I love Fall and Spring.

Please continue to keep the people on the East Coast in your thoughts and prayers as they struggle to recover from Hurricane Sandy.  I lived in Pensacola, FL for many years and it is heartbreaking to have to live with the devastation you experience with any of these storm and their aftermath.

I am so excited!! I have been accepted as a member of the DT for Tammy's Scrapin Corner.  I have been wanting to apply for her team for several months and finally decided to go for it.  I applied late Sunday night before going to bed.  I was already scheduled to be a guest DT on Monday; so now it is official.  Join in the fun and enter her challenges every Monday.  They are so much fun!  Tammy and her DT team are awesome!!
 
I have been taking it slow creating the three different sets of cards with this wonderful cardmaking kit.  I cut them all out at the same time; but I am trying to make each card just a little different, either by adding something or by using a different ink color.  I like variety in life and I feel the same way about my creations.  I don't like creating two completely identical.  This is the 2nd of the 3 card styles in this cardmaking kit.  I hope you enjoy this one. 
 
 
 
One regular card and one with green/red embossed for variety
 
 
 
All Five Cards With This Pattern - Green one not shown in group below

Watch this video for CTMH Card Making Kits. The two card kits are Avonlea (Thank You) kit and Pear & Partridge (Christmas card) kit. The Pear & Partridge is perfect for making Christmas cards for your family and friends. I am currently making the Christmas cards and they are so easy to follow. Each kit makes 15 cards plus I have enough paper left over to make additional cards by using cardstock I have on hand. Both WOTG kits come with a D size stamp set and everything you need, including the cards and envelopes, to make these beautiful cards shown here.
 


 
 
 
Thank you for visiting my blog.  I appreciate your support and I love all the wonderful compliments.  I hope you will be inspired to create something.  It doesn't have to be cards.  Someday, I may surprise you and created something other than a card or Scrapbook pages.  I actually have created other things; but I wasn't impressed and didn't take pictures. LOL.  My niche seems to be in these two areas, not in 3D crafts.  Ha!  Have a wonderful week!
 
Remember - Keep On Creating!!
It's Good For Your Health!
