I brought a mountain of my own Christmas sets to share, and my own basic supplies, inks, and card stock and both my mini and regular MISTI. Marcia graciously shared her motor-driven Big Shot, a paper cutter, and a few sweet Christmas sets that I don't own - yes. there are a few.
What made it even more fun, was the fact that we crafted back-to-back and had no clue what the other was making until one of us couldn't stand it another minute - I must have said 'what are you working on over there?' a dozen times! lol
Okay. Enough chit chat - here are the TEN cards that I started at Marcia's, and finished in my own craft room on Thursday. I had a mission to make pretty, but mail-friendly cards!

Stamping? - perfectly imperfect!
Marcia had one particular set waiting for me … you know my love of winged things? This one just had to get some attention! From Gina K Designs, Marcia picked this one up when we visited Gina's store in Wisconsin last fall with two other friends! Enter Fruit of the Seasons ...
Altenew Brown woodgrain card stock, Gansai Tambi gold water color
Spellbinder's Hemstitched Circle dies
Last, but certainly not least... Marcia and I decided to use the same set for our cards for the current The Flower Challenge - Pretty Pastels! Enter Altenew's Poinsettia and Pine. Stamped with Versamark, and heat embossed with Brutus Monroe Gilded embossing powder, I chose to color mine with Milled Lavender, and a bit of Pumice stone for the leaves.

You know I didn't stop at Christmas, but I'll save those for another day. I'm so happy to have TEN Christmas cards made to add to my stash for 2019!!!
Thanks, Marcia, for lunch, for welcoming me into your home, and sharing your wonderful craft room with me... we'll have to make it an annual event - our very own Christmas in July!
