SUSTARS November 2010 Bloghop... It's beginning to look a lot like CHRISTMAS!

Hi, and welcome to FancyNancyKay's blog and the SUStars blog hop for November where we hope to help you get in the Christmas spirit! You may have arrived here from Raissa's whether you did or not, please peruse my shares since you're here :) , and then at the bottom of this post you'll find the link to the next hop spot... if you keep following around, you'll make a complete circle and back here again :)

My share will be from my recent Christmas Card Stamp-a-Stack!

Attendees made 6 each of four different designs - some I CASEd almost completely as they were shared by another person, and some came from goodness knows where... but I think they all work!

Card 1: Cherry Cobbler cardstock cut 4.25x11, tied with crochet ribbon over Artichoke seam binding around the trimmed and punched CC piece. A 4.25x5.5 piece of Crumb cake is stamped with the cool Christmas background stamp and Merry Christmas is stamped in the window opening stamped on the front, while a scallop punched sentiment is popped up on dimensionals on the left (both of these stamped in Cherry Cobbler).

Card 2:
More Cherry Cobbler with tiny dot embossed white over some of our cool designer paper... with a sentiment from Word Play embellished by a rhinestone, and popped up on dimensionals, and further enhanced by a bow made from a strip of the matching fabric.

Card 3:

WOOD - yes, wood! Cut into strips and stamped on, makes the title sentiment piece for this card. Old Olive and Riding Hood Red DSP, crochet thread, and tinsel from the Mini, plus a half pearl make this a fun card!

Card 4:
Contempo Christmas tree stamped in Artichoke on Vanilla shares the stage with DSP and Artichoke seam binding... and a punched heart with a Cherry Cobbler punchie inside makes the scene!

I am in the process of packing up to move - we were supposed to close on the house today, but alas - one more piece of paper to go (pray that that's it, please!) - looks like MAYBE Wednesday, but with daddy back in the hospital - this time with a broken hip, and mom not willing to leave him, we will be packing them up, too :)

God is in control - glad I know that :)

Next hop stop would be here:
I know Monica's got something cute to share!

I am so glad I do not have to choose which card I like best. I usually go for ones like your first card but I have been attracted to contempo. You have clinched it for me.
