A Few Cards for My Christmas Card Workshop

I've been really slow to take photos and get them up.  Since my workshop is Saturday, I figured I'd better get to it.  These are some of the Wonderland cards we'll be making.  The colors aren't great because I took them tonight without natural light.

All cards use the Wonderland kit, and various snowflake and Christmas sets.

The first card was inspired by a card I saw on the CTMH board or a blog, and I can't for the life of me remember whose it is.  If you know, please give a shout out!  

For this card and the one above, I embossed the edges in silver.  I love that this stamp set comes with an inner and outer snowflake stamp AND you can cut the snowflake using the Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge.  By far my favorite thing in the Idea Book.  So many shapes!

I don't know why this one is blurry.  Still haven't perfected my iPhone photo taking skills.  I tend to move too  much, I think.

This one is a retired set that I've always loved.  I think it works beautifully with the browns in this pack.

This one is fairly simple, but I blinged it out with glitter, so it's quite lovely in person. 

This last card was inspired by Vicki's card here.  It's one of my favorites!  I love the wreath with the snow.

I will try and get the rest of the cards posted soon!  I'm also hoping to get some cute surprises made for my workshop and Scrap Club attendees this month.  The AP cartridge has lots of cute boxes//bags too :)

Give Thanks Banner...oops

Two weekends ago I made this banner for our wall.  I used CTMH Dreamin' papers and the Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge.  After I finished, I showed it to the family and hung it on the wall.  It was only after it hung there three days that Austin noticed something wrong with it.  Give it a good long look. Click to zoom if you need to...

Austin: Is it supposed to say 'Give Thanks'?
Me: Yes, why?
Austin: Because it says 'Give Thakns'

OOPS!  WHen I put it together, I switched the n and k without realizing it.  Now the family joke is to ask what we give thak-ns for each day :)

I wish you a very Happy Thanksgiving or Thaknsgiving, whichever the case may be!
