Holidays 2016 - Series End

Hello crafty friends,

Today is the last day for this Holiday Series.  Even though I got sick during it, it's been so much fun. Thank you for helping me celebrate the season.  Here are the last few cards in my stash:

This card was easy, but took time, because I die cut those small flowers and glued them piece by piece onto my pattern paper card front.

I fell in love with this snowman tossing penguins stamp and ended up ordering it from Europe! Surprising the shipping was not an issue ($5)... lets face it, that's less than some pretty big online crafty store we all know and love.   By the way... I stamped the image and cut it out using my ScanNCut2.

On these last two cards I used another digital stamp from justMEdigitalstamps called Snow Buddies.

Well, that's it.  I will leave the contest open until Sunday night... 8pm CST.   I will draw a winner and announce it on Monday... Good luck crafty friends.

There will be a GIVEAWAY at the end of the series (Dec 16th), I will randomly pick one lucky person to win... here are the rules:

Nice, but not required... use the FIND ME links to find and follow me on any of these:  Facebook, Instagram, YouTube and Google+.  THANKS!


  1. I loved this series Mary, it really added to my holiday spirit to see what surprise you had in store each post. Thank you! So for the final four...I love the look of the poinsettia on the check background-very elegant. The joyful sentiment with the penguin juggling snowman was a perfact match. That stamp is adorable-great find. The window scene is sweet and who doesn't love a holiday window? Finally the bears with the lights so nice and look like they are having fun. I really like the colors you chose, bright and cheery. Merry Christmas Mary! Thank you for sharing your creativity with us.

  2. Thank you, Mary, for all your work to do this fun series!
    Love the poinsettia card! I thought it was done with a stencil and red stencil paste til I read your description! That is a lot of glueing and piecing! Very pretty effect!
    Love the snowman with penguins! Darling stamp!
    Cute bears and snowman on your fun shaker cards! Love the window dies you used and your pretty coloring!

  3. These are all so cute. Really like the shaker cards. Happy 2017!
