CSS DT Inspiration Blog Hop

Hello,  tonight my pals and I from the Gina K.Designs CSS Alumni DT are getting together to share creations that we made based on this photo of an advent calendar that Carolina found for us to use. 


You should have arrived at my blog from Lori McAree's blog, if not you can go back to StampTV and start at the beginning.
I was inspired by the reds/greens in the photo and came up with a couple of cards to share.  I knew I wanted to use up some scraps of Authentique Wonder paper that were left over from the class I taught. I put it together with some PL Ivory, Red Hot and Fresh Asparagus cardstocks to create my cards.




I used the same layout for each of the cards, just turned the second one for a little different look.  The sentiment for the top card is from the GKD Blessed is the Season set and the sentiment for the second card is from the GKD Winter Wonderland StampTV kit.  Did you notice?  I used fffffelt snowflakes on the second card.  With my long time aversion to felt, I can hardly believe it myself. :)


Make sure to leave a comment as you hop along because on Tuesday morning (November 22), we will randomly choose one of the comments from all the blogs and the winner will get to pick a GKD stamp set of their choice valued up to $24.95


I am going to send you over to Melissa Shultz's blog for some more eye candy. 
Enjoy the hop!

Very nice cards! I am a bit traditional, so the colors are wonderful. Its hard to be traditional with all the great colors and designs that are available these days. I even find myself using purple for Christmas!

Hi, Melissa,
But the snowflakes don't even look like felt. They look stiff and shiny like glazed chipboard :) Beautiful!
