Just Believe!

My 2nd project for my upcoming workshop this weekend.   I have never thought to use DSP for the Top Note, but saw a card (Sorry, forgot who made it) and just had to case the idea.    The Eggplant and Plum go together so nicely and just LOVE the new scalloped ribbon.

Swirled Snow

#6 (and final) card for the Holiday Stamp-a-Stack.   I bought this stamp set last year but never used it.  No reason as to why, because I really like it.  
I really like the way the color combo turned out.   Originally going to use Riding Hood Red, but the Burgundy finished the card off much nicer.

Warmest of Wishes Treat Bag

I cased this idea from the 2011 Holiday Mini.   I really think the Owl in the Hostess set "Warmest of Wishes" was the perfect size for the treat bag. 

I hope the ladies at the workshop this weekend like it too.   It is perfect to give as a gift for school mates, neighbors and/or friends.
