Christmas Cards with Barbara

Hi Everyone and Happy Friday! Here are some Christmas cards from one of our members Barbara Dykhouse (who also happens to be my Mom). She created these for a Holiday Mini Catalog swap that I am hosting. These fabulous new sets are from the Holiday Mini catalog, which you can start ordering from October 1 (or if you are a demo, ordering started September 1.)

Her first card uses Scandinavian Season and the matching wheel...

Her second card shows a fun and impressive way to use the new Bigz Top Note die for the Big Shot. She ran it through the Big Shot with a folded piece of Kraft paper so that it made a little card in that shape, then attached it to the Riding Hood Red cardstock. How cute is that!!!
The second picture shows how the kraft with the skaters opens up to reveal the message inside.

Thanks so much for sharing your cards with us Mom. Don't forget to come back in October to see our new sketch challenge.
