Seasons Greetings

This month, the Imagine Crafts AIR's were all sent Authentiques Glistening collection to play with.  I just LOVE the colors in this line- while it's winter in theme, it could easily be an everyday card if you just change out my sentiment.  That wood colored paper is fabulous!  I stamped my sentiment in Toffee Crunch before adhering to the card, and added a few gemstones.

enjoy your weekend!

Moxie Fab Thanks Blog Hop!

Welcome to the Moxie Fab Thanks blog hop!
You should have arrived from Sylvia Blum's blog, if not head on back to the Moxie Fab World Blog so you can start at the beginning.

Cath is such fun, witty, caring, & supportive person, and her awesome blog posts & column will be missed!  I couldn't  send her off with a big thank you!
I covered my card base with some Simple Stories Say Cheese patterned paper.  I then stamped the sentiment, and row of hearts onto a white strip of card stock.  I adhered a ribbon tab with my tiny attacher, and attached it to the card using Crafty Foam Tape.  I finished it off with a few pearls.

Joy in Monterey Wood Pine

Hello- Happy Hump day!  Today's card uses Imagine Crafts new Monterey Wood Pine as it's focal point.
While I do so like the traditional Christmas colors of green, and red; I thought I would use a less traditional color palettes for my card today.
I inked up my wood star with Red Cherry Memento Luxe, and mounted it to my stamped panel.  I then adhered sequins to finish it off.

The Monterey Pine wood pieces are a bit thicker, so this is a definite hand deliver item this year! ;)
