It's Day 17 and I'm sharing a simple card that just epitomizes the holiday season.  There's nothing like a fire to make it feel like the holiday season.

25 Days of Cards: Day 16

Day 16 and technically the Third Day of Christmas.  Here's the card:

25 Days of Cards: Day 14

Trim the Tree is a very nice cart and I think I will make some tree ornaments next year using it.  For now, I'll settle for some unique cards on Day 14.

25 Days of Cards: Day 13

Day 13 is upon us!  I thought that I'd make a snow globe card and had a lot of fun doing it!  I used acetate (transparency) to get the "glass" look.

Ten days and counting!!  I absolutely love this card!  It grew very organically from the color scheme I wanted to use and...well, I think it's divine!

25 Days of Cards: Day 9

Here's another snowman for you!  I once again used the "sweater cardstock" for some interest.

25 Days of Cards: Day 8

Here is the 8th card.  I love this one because it's so simple and it allowed me to play with color and pattern.

25 Days of Cards: Day 7

This card was inspired by me LOVING to use non-traditional color schemes for holiday cards.  So, I thought, "Why not brown and orange?"

25 Days of Cards: Day 6

This is going really quickly!  Sorry about the late posting of Day 5!  Today is Day 6 and I love this card!  It's really simple but just seems to fill me with holiday spirit!

25 Days of Cards: Day 5

I love ornaments, so I did a card devoted to them!  Here is Day 5:

25 Days of Cards: Day 4

It's the weekend and here is the card for day #4!  I love the snow friends cart and found (actually, my sister found) pre-packaged cards with a realistic sweater design on them, front and back.  It allowed me to give the snowman a realistic sweater!  I wanted to try my Copics for the blushing, but the paper REALLY absorbed the inks and I was forced to try to make the bleed look purposeful.  In the end, I'm happy with it, but at least now I know!

25 Days of Cards: Day 3

Here is card #3 for my 25 days of cards.  I really like making unusual holiday cards.  This one didn't photograph the saying that well, but it's very clear in person with the black-on-black.

25 Days of Cards: Day 2

Here's card number 2 for my 25 days! I had fun with this one and plan on creating another with more reindeer and a Santa in the sleigh!
