Happy Thanksgiving! 

You know – I’m still not finished posting all of the cards I made for the ‘Shop til You Drop’ event a few weeks ago.  I’m going to just finish posting all the remaining cards today because…well, I’m pretty bored with posting them day after day – and I’d like to move on to something else.  So today, I’ll throw the rest of the cards out there for you…

I think I made over 20 designs with 2 of each card for that event – all made in one weekend.  I could have made my Christmas cards with all that work and have been done by now!  After all that effort, do you think I could actually use THESE as my Christmas cards?  Would anyone even notice a big orange lion on their holiday card…

Maybe a pinwheel?

PB110029

This technique is really cool – the petals are made from folded tab punches!

How about some butterflies?  This started out as a CASE but morphed into something else…

I love the paper piercing to go along with the ‘journey’ definition.

Let’s see…what else did I make?  This was my make-and-take card (another modified CASE from Stampin’ Success):

And for this one, I copied was inspired by a color combo I saw in a magazine:

PB110019 (2)

And I made a few baby cards too:

C’mon!  Those could pass for Christmas cards…baby Jesus?  Right?  Okay – maybe not.

So here’s another couple of actual Christmas designs sorta CASEd from the Stampin’ Up! Holiday Mini:

Hmmm…now that time is running out, I may use one of these simple designs for my own card…let’s see if I have any creativity left inside me…
