A Beautiful View

This first card is one I made for the second day of countdowns over on StampTV.  The challenge is faux window.  I also in entering it in the challenge for Stamptaculaar Sunday Challenge.  Stamptacular's challenge this week is to have a tree on it.  It was pretty simple to put this card together and I love how it turned out.  I usually don't love my card but every once in a while I do.  I have been told I am way too critical of my own work.  I am working on that, maybe that will be my New Years resolution?

On th my next card.

This one I made for the first day of countdown challenges on StampTV. The challenge is split negative.  I am also entering this on into the challenge for Stampin' B's.  Their challenge this week is to use ribbon without a bow or a knot.

And finally I have a gift card holder I made today.  I was working on a card for a challenge (that I hope to finish tomorrow) today when my son came in and tells me that his girlfriend is on her way over.  No bigger right? Wrong she has family coming in town today and doesn't know when she would be able to get with us to exchange gifts so.... they decide we should do it today.  I thought I had still some time to get the holder for her gift card made and now I have about 15 minutes!  Yikes!  So I pushed everything aside and whipped this little holder in time.  So are you ready to see it?

 Not too bad huh?  I did have the bow tried much better, but in my hurry to finish I realized that I forgot to sign the inside.  I had already trimmed the ribbon ends, dang.  So I had to open it, sign and re-tie it and then it didn't come out as good.

I hope to have a post tomorrow, but in case I don't I wish you a very Happy Holiday!!!



  1. All of your projects are terrific, Brenda, but that gift card holder has to top them all -- to consider you made it in 15 minutes with no notice at all -- you work great under pressure, girl!!

  2. Wow! They are all beautiful from the beautiful window scene, split negative, to the hurried (stress me) gift card holder. Great job. Thanks for joining the Stampin B's ribbon challenge this week. Have a Merry Christmas!

  3. Beautiful cards! :) Love that winter scene and sentiment is wonderful.

    Thank you for joining at SSC! :)


  4. Beautiful cards Brenda! I love the snowman one!


I appreciate you taking the time to stop by, thank you.
