Late as usual

So I'm finally getting around to posting the cards we did for our card classes. It seemed that everyone enjoyed making them. Thanks again ladies, I had a great time!
This first card is made using the Snowburst set from the mini catalog and the sentiment is from a retired set. The cardstock, ink and ribbon are all Bravo Burgandy. I actually gave the girls a choice to make this card or the next as I couldn't decide on one. This card envolved masking and even though it looked intimidating, all the girls tried it. And they turned out great. This one also uses the Snowburst set as well as "joy" from the Snowflake Spot set. It's hard to see but the base is Bravo Burgandy with a layer of Basic Grey and then the white. Used the word window punch to make the accents.
Flaky Friends is still one of my fav's. We embossed the snowmen in black and then colored in with the coordinating markers. Cardstock we used, Soft Sky, Always Artichoke and Whisper White and the pp is from the Wintergreen line.
This was a superquick card. Used the Snowflake Spot here with Night of Navy, Brocade Blue and Sahara Sand ink. Added a little bling with dazzling diamonds glitter.Another cute little snowman from the Holiday Tag Team set. The Believe is from a retired set but I love the font. The base is River Rock cs, a layer of Always Artichoke and the squares were cut from the Happy Harmony pp line. We colored in the snowman with pencils and blender pens, then added some diamonds to him too.

So with 2 little ones running around this year I've decided to once again decorate my tree with paper ornaments. This is one kind of ornament I'll be making with the scallop punch. Very easy, very quick. PP is from the Wintergreen line.
Close up.
Here's a quick card I did for Colby's Wee College teachers. Love the dazzling diamonds on the snowflakes.
These cards are 3 x 3 size. It was fun working on a smaller surface but very difficult for me. I decided on a very simple design as I made 18 of these for the girls at Mom's morning out. Again pp is from the Wintergreen line. (great paper)
