HYCCT 2014

 Yesterday, I whipped up three cards...really quickly.
I think they are soooo sweet too!
Boy, how hard is it to give away lovely cards! 

Hosted by my crafty friend, Ashjoy,
HYCCT1410 asks you to have something missing on your card.
Stamps and dies by Sweet N Sassy Stamps

pink, purple, and 2 of something...
I love that HYCCT gives me a reason to dig out my old 
Stampin Up Sets. This one is called Laundry Notes.

HYCCT1416: No stamps...
And interestingly enough, I ransacked the "give away supply box" I purged from my art room to create this beauty.  The sentiment is from a vellum pad of sentiments.
I guess it is back in the art room!!  haha

Bling strips and bling sheets from The Eyelet Outlet.
Rumple ribbon from Lovebug Creations.

I created these cards while I was on the Glue Dots ® Design team.  
Mini and Micro dots are great for rhinestones and sequins.  Craft Glue Dots ® are 
so strong, perfect for those large roses!


So far behind...

but...maybe I can still accomplish all the amazing challenges for HYCCT over on Splitcoaststampers...

Hero Card...
for my mustached father!

The bling strips and star can be found 

The sentiment comes from Joy's Life.

This notebook is going to be well used.)

This new set, which will be released in a few days, is called
"Oh, Christmas Tree."  It has such a cheery face, don't you think!
What is your favorite holiday song?
I guess I probably have too many to pick from.
