I have been on vacation since before Christmas and have been spending some time in my craft room organizing and catching up on some creative time! I played along with this week's sketch at Freshly Made Sketches. The 2012 A Muse Studio Holiday Catalog and Inspiration Guide is expiring tomorrow and I have loved this catalog! So many great sets and Monster Bash is one of my absolute favorites. Besides the obvious use for Halloween cards, I have used it for Birthday cards and as seen below Valentine's Day. Not an obvious use of using monsters for cards of love but when you pair the sentiment 'I only have eyes for you' with a heart it makes perfect sense!

We are having a White Christmas this year! My sons are home from college and we are enjoying having them home for a few weeks. They wished for some snow and their wish came true. It won't last long but it sure is beautiful to see the snow flakes coming down gently.
I wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and safe travels to all those venturing from home to visit family and friends.
This one is a little more work with the detail cutting so it may not be something to do on a large scale but I think it is a cute card nonetheless.
I stamped the sentiment again on the twill ribbon but repeated it so that it would run the length of the card. I also like cutting apart the sentiment to give it more dimension.
Don't you just love the Twas the Night Before Christmas cardstock? I do! It has so many uses and it is nice to have a cute story in the background for added interest!

I am REALLY late this year sending out my Christmas Cards! Today I finally have time and the concentration to get down to business. Here is the first of three designs that I am making this year. I stamped the sentiment on the A Muse Studio Vanilla Twill ribbon. I had not attempted this before and I have to say the effect is really nice! You can emboss on the twill ribbon and it comes out beautifully.
