Day 6 Holiday Card Insipration!

Hello my crafty Friends remember me?  Not sure what happened to me but this week has been a crazy one!  I have cards to share but can't seem to make it here to blog.  I live blog, not schedule but I may start scheduling posts to  make sure I share with you!

Much is going on over here, more etsy sales (who hoo) and custom wreath orders from friends!  Also next Thursday Chad's grandmother's condo has a craft sale that I am part of.  This will be my third year, and my first bringing wreaths, and of course cards and tags!  So I have been preparing like crazy for this!  I have a lot of Christmas cards but realized I have no birthday!  Yikes!

Today I am here to share Day 6 of my Holiday Card Inspiration!  I actually shared this card on Scrapbooking Cafe's Blog yesterday!  I will be back tomorrow with Day 7!  Remember I will be drawing a winner from one of the posts for a prize! Last Friday I received some new Hero Arts goodies and couldn't wait to play with them:

I used Hero Arts and Sizzix new background stamp and emboss set Snowflake Background!  Oh I love it!  Here is a side view:

I paired it with Hero Arts Very Best Holiday Stamp and used the matching frame cut to cut it out!  (The frame cut only cuts out the outside edge and I handcut the inside)  I figured I needed a wreath stamp seeing as I make so many of them!

And of course I made 4:


Well that's it from me today!  I am off to do some shopping on the other end of the city.  I was supposed to yesterday but it was so icy, I think you could have skated down the street!  See you tomorrow!

Love your set of cards Anita! The snowflake embossed background is wonderful! Good luck with your sales at the craft show! My blog is also very neglected right now and the month of December is not going to be any better as we have family staying over from the 1st to the 3rd of January!!!!
