Let's try this again!

Good morning everyone! I really hope that blogger let's me post. I've been trying for a few days and all I keep getting is trouble. So keeping my fingers crossed that this works here I go. Here is a couple of cards that I made the other day.

As most of you know by now I'm a little out of sorts with the traditional Christmas colors. I get bored with the same old red and green - so that's where the brown came in.

I just love this set from SU! I think that it's adorable, it's called Holiday Lineup. They are all so goofy looking that they make me giggle. The base card is Riding Hood Red and it's layered with Chocolate Chip that I ran thru the CB. I added a couple of red brads on the left upper corner to break up the color a little, and a length of ribbon before I adhered that panel down. I colored the image with my watercolors and sponged some Old Olive ink around it before layering it to a piece of Kiwi Kiss cs. I then added that panel to a panel of DP from Marcella by K that was sponged with Kiwi Kiss and another piece of Riding Hood Red.

I think it turned out cute. Like I said those goofy looking reindeer are so adorable!

Here is another creation I've made that's not so goofy.

I think that the lighting is wrong on this one, it's hard to see - I'm sorry. A photographer I never claimed to be Ü

The base card is Baja Breeze that I layered with a piece of dark blue shimmer paper (that I've had forever) that I ran thru the cb. I added square brads to the outer corners to break up the dark color a little bit. The image panel from Ducks in a Row, and sentiment panel from The Rubber Cafe, were stamped with versamark and embossed with Judikins Aegean Silver EP on to Baja Breeze cs. I sponged around the outer edges with Brilliant Blue ink and layered it on to scraps of the dark blue shimmer paper and a piece of light grey shimmer paper. Like I said I'm sorry for the poor picture.

I know it's not much, but that's all I've got for today. I hope to get back in the swing tomorrow. If I can just get off the computer to craft - oh, you all know what that's like.

Have a great day!

Both cards are fabulous Joani! I think it's great that you use non traditional colors for Christmas.

PS I received the images the other day, sorry I forgot to mention it before. Thanks!
