Week of November 29 - December 5

Hi everyone! Boy, this past week was again full of beautiful creations wasn't it? I managed to narrow my list down to 10 but it was hard! You really could say that all these tied for the same spot on the list!

Jacquie or JavaBlueStamper as so many of us know her created this gorgeous card. Her coloring and the paper she picked is wonderful! I'm not much of a drinker, but I do enjoy a cocktail from time to time! You will certainly enjoy her blog when you go visit!

Keri Lee Sereika posted a Drop.Dead.Gorgeous card this week. I love the design and the sparkle on the card. Any card that tells someone they sparkle is right up my alley.

Silke Ledlow's card with a bowing nutcracker is a perfect embodiment of what Christmas is to me. The birth of Jesus is what it's all about and I love to see a non-religious element paying homage to our King. This card is full of layers and embellishments yet has a clean design.

Harriet Skelly created another outstanding one layer, CAS card. It's elegant. Beautiful. Understated. And would make anyone happy to receive it!
I don't need to really say anything about this card. It speaks for itself. You'll see what I mean!

Amy Young created the cutest card using an Anya; at first glance I thought it was a new one. But you know those Anya gals are soooo good at altering and combining the images to get exactly what they want! I personally think this is a great Anya design - I'd love to be shopping with her! Heck, I'd love to look like that shopping! I think her card captures perfectly the child-like joy that we all seem to feel during this season!

Tenia Nelson always creates the greatest CAS cards with a really chic, modern, hip feel to them. This one was created from an inspiration piece at the Moxie Fab blog. I saw a few cards based on the piece and hers was easily my favorite.

Randi Wall has got some serious coloring skills. She just made the Sweet Pea stamps team and I know that I'm in trouble! I think the images are great but had managed to not purchase one UNTIL Randi started showing them off on her blog. I want to color just like her! This ATC is so beautiful. It should be framed. I'm just sayin'.

Broni Holcombe is next on the list. Ya'll know that I love the vintage/shabby look. And text print (music is the same thing). And so her red card that captures both of this captured my attention before I even saw the full card in my reader!

Danni Reid always blows me away with her designs. But her tree card - PHENOMENAL. I'm pretty sure she oozes creativity.

And my favorite card from this past week:

I LOVE this card. Prayer is such a powerful thing. It's powerful to pray. It's powerful when we know that people are praying for us. There are so many people that I lift up in prayer --- several times a day because I don't always remember all of them at the same time. What a great way to keep a running list of all those requests. I love the little box that can be checked off when the prayer has been answered.
Sue's use of this new set coming up is such a great idea.
And her use of the library pocket card embossing folder is one of the best I've seen.

Here is a button that you can display on your blog if you like. Link it here. Link it to the post where you were featured. Don't link it. Whatever makes ya happy! Just know that YOUR creations added a touch of happiness to me this week!

That's it for this week. Be sure to let these talented ladies know what you think if you haven't already! There are so many words in our society that seek to destroy and cut people down. Take a moment to counter that by leaving some words that seek instead to lift up and encourage.

WOW cassie! thankyou so much for this honor. I'm so glad that you like this card and set. I do too! I was SO happy to see Clear Dollar Stamps created this stamp. I couldn't wait to use it. I feel like you do that it is so helpful to have it written down and organized. Congrats to the other talented ladies here as well on being featured! God bless you cassie. Love, sue
