Card 2 in a set of 4. . . .

Yesterday I posted the first in this series of 4 cards I made a couple of weeks ago.  Today, I am posting my personal favorite in this set.   What I really liked was using a cut out image in the background in a "very" non-traditional method!  I think this has become one of my fav things to do now with my Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge! 
Anyhow. . .here's the sketch:

And here's my take:

Card 1 in a set of 4!

Ever get stumped. . . as I often do. . . on what to do for cards?  I found this great set of papers I bought last JANUARY, I bought it at the time not only 'cause I really liked it, but it was "different" - so non-traditional winter papers!  Anyways, I used the Verve Challenges for the Month of November to create four cards with all the same papers and stamp set!   This was my personal challenge. . . sometimes I get distracted by all the "papers" I have hoarded away and have a hard time sitting down and picking what to do. . . anyways here's the original sketch:

what I came up with:

B and T Papers:  January Brrrr (discontinued)
CTMH Cardstock: Juniper, Black & Colonial White
Stamps:  CTMH Timber (greeting), Stampalicious (image)
Accessories:  CTMH Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge, CTMH Gems, CTMH Black and White Dot Ribbon and Copic Markers 

. . . . .TFL!

Christmas Cards. . .

Okay, I have to say I'm finding I not only have a stash of Christmas Papers I've completely forgotten about. . . but some of my cards I'm completely forgetting about as well.  However, I've found a stash of cards and thought I'd share them with you! 

This first card features a stamp from Stampin' Bella and I've co-ordinated it by coloring with Copic markers. 

This second card is featuring some wonderful papers which were released by Bo-Bunny last year!  LOVE THEM!!!  Again the stamp is one from Stamping Bella and colored with Copic markers to co-ordinate with the papers! 

These cards are very simple layouts. . . and oh so easy to put together!

Lost my Mojo. . . .

Okay, I'm a little behind in posting my MOJO layouts. . . figured I'd better get some more posted ;) This was the last week for the month of November, and over at MOJO they like to mix things up and focus on non-traitional sized cards, so the option was for a round or square card. 

Since the majority of my cards are square, I figured I'd try making a round Card!  Here's my take on the layout:

Can I say I LOVE my CTMH Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge!!!  Yipeee. . . it made this card so simple!  The actual shape is the scalloped circle at 5 3/4", the green scalloped circle is 5 1/2", the red circle is 5 1/4" and the B&T papers were two circles cut at 5", the circles were then stacked on my cutter and I cut 1/4 of the circle.   Added some ribbon, cut the snowflake again from my Cricut Cartridge, the image is stamped on a tag from the Cartridge and framed with the same image.   

B and T papers:  CTMH (Christmas papers from last year - discontinued)
Cardstock:  CTMH New Englad Ivy, Cranberry, & Colonial White
Stamps:  Stampalicious
Accessories:  CTMH Glitter, CTMH Button, CTMH Cricut Art Phiolosophy Cartridge, Copic Markers, Staz-On Black Ink

TFL. . . now for this weeks challenge. . .sketch is out please feel free to check it out MOJO 218
