Christmas Card Kit Club ~ September 2012

Hello friends and followers!  Welcome to the second installment of the Christmas Card Kit Club 5 of my crafty friends and I have organized.  I got the idea from my crafty friend Suzanne; each of us takes a turn hosting the challenge for a month by mailing supplies to the other members of the group - images, patterned papers, embellishments, etc.  Everyone receives the same materials, and we have the entire month to make one or more cards with them.  Then, on the last day of the month we all share our creations on our blogs and have fun seeing what everyone else made with the same supplies, plus we have a big head start on our holiday cards for the season.  Isn't that a fun idea?  I was so happy my pals wanted to play along.  So, this month Lydia was our  host and sent us the following supplies (all by Stampin' Up!) including:  
Images from Winterful Wonderland 
Candlelight Designer paper 
Snow Festival Tags 
Noel Notes laser cut note and scalloped liner 
Champagne Glimmer Paper 
1/8" Old Olive Taffeta Ribbon, and 
Designer Brushed Bronze buttons.
Here is a pic of the kit contents:

(Holiday acrd count - 16, just dismal!!)  I meant to create more projects this month, planning to craft all the livelong day this entire weekend (I like to stew over ideas for a while) and then my husband's business trip was cancelled at the last minute, so a weekend-long craftfest was no longer in the cards.  
          Now I know you are excited to see what my talented friends made with their kits as well, so be sure to visit them all, I am sure they have something beautiful for you to see:
Thanks so much for stopping by!  Hope you enjoyed our first Christmas Card Kit Club Hop and will join us again last the day of the month in the future!  Cheers!

I love that layout and the way you used the papers is divine! So sorry your crafty plans were waylaid, that happened to me this weekend. Had planned on stamping all evening Saturday, didn't work out. But this card is adorable!
