Any day of the week would be a very good day when spent with my friend Marcia! Last week Wednesday we were hard at play from 9am to 4pm stamping, cutting, embossing, and stenciling all the bounty of craftiness we had to share - believe me, there was a lot!!
We try to pick something we both use in our own way to share with you all, but keep our finished cards secret from each other. This time it happened to be a wonderful layering stencil set called Holiday Botanical Background from Pinkfresh Studios.
Crystal Accents!! Look at the one I missed underneath in the cluster of three!! lol
Pinkfresh also gets credit for this retired Joy and Cheer sentiment, and the Fancy Oval Frame.
I had a great time playing with a few of Marcia's finds from The Greetery - of course their Winterberry Bouquet was at the top of my list - since they are what I see outside of my studio window each day... here shown in all their glorious red - perfect for a Christmas card!
I embossed the negative again with my SU Subtle Texture EF.
The Greetery provided all the treats used for my third card - Marcia even created the wonderful wood grain card for my frame and 'shutters!' She spoils me!
That pretty plaid is from PTI's text-style Fall Prints and Patterns that I got for $2! I drove 750 miles to pick up the last package of SU Old Olive paper from LeAnne! lol Used here for my card base
I have one more card made, but I cannot share as I used it for a DT card! You'll see it soon enough!
Thank you, Marcia, for the day spent crafting away - and your wonderful bowl [and a half] of chili!!! YUM!! I'm on my way over - virtually - to see all the wonder of your makes!
