SU Workshop - Christmas Cards

I'm in Vancouver for the weekend and oh my...I couldn't believe the amount of traffic on the highway!!!  I was so happy to have my hubby at the wheel. I'll be busy visiting my family so I won't be posting or commenting for the next couple of days.  Hope you are all have a fabulous weekend with family and friends.
Well, I finally came up with a christmas card for my September workshop so you won't be seeing another Christmas card from me until it's closer to the season. I found a nice easy layout at Clean & Simple Stamping. It was a great opportunity to display the new flocked paper in the new Stampin' Up! Holiday Mini Catalogue. I also brought out the Shimmer Paint!!!  I was so excited to work with it and it gives such a beautiful effect without overdoing it. The Kraft paper card has a close up to show it off :)  The white and red card I used silver embossing powder instead.  And the "Sleigh Bells" twill ribbon on the Kraft card is a dream to work with.  It's the right width and it's heavy for that country/vintage feel.
I hope my hostesses will like this card....I know I'm excited to show them.  Now I get to play around with some Halloween ideas.  The kids will like that.
