Season's Greetings

First of all...

Steph, if hub's is near by don't let him see this post!!!

I'll start with this card I made this morning.....

 It's an easel card...
I played with a bunch of stickles, in a clear, green & gold for the ornament.
I used some antique linen distress ink on everything...
 the paper, doily, lace, tag and fingers! 

A close up of the inside...
I used the platinum perfect pearls to mount the velum on top of the patterned paper.
I punched a small hole with my crop-a-dile and put the perfect pearls on the hole making sure it seeped down underneath. 

I love this card and want to keep it for myself.....
but I won't!

I'll be entering this in the Bella Creations Cartes Classiques November challenge,

This is the sketch pad that I made for my son-in-law.
He loves to draw and if I remember correctly he has a small book that he carries with him. 
This one is bigger so he can keep it home and use it for larger sketches.

I used a piece of canvas for the cover that I painted with several different colors of acrylic paints, then I used my new Stampabilities-Faded Text Background stamp and my jalopy stamp from the 
Tim Holtz collection.
My Prima Mask and some 
Cashmere Texture Magic
 for the bricks in the corner.
I used a clear decoupage to add the skeleton leaves and title, then over everything to seal it.

Hope he likes it. 
Have a hard time looking for things to buy for him, never thought I'd come up with something to make for him!

I will be sharing both of these projects over at the Make it Monday blog.
