fill 'er up!

Ok...so my complaining must've done it for me!! My mo-jo hit me, of course timing was terrible, but you take what you can get, right?! It came right as I was starting to get sleepy last night! I had even crawled into bed already! I suddenly got a cute idea for my Christmas cards this year!! I think that's what made me have such a block...I have been over thinking my Christmas Cards for this year. I knew I wanted to use the new In Colors, but beyond that I was blank. {My OCD has prevented me from thinking of much else since early last week, cuz I didn't want to be stuck on Dec. 20th, scrambling to get my cards finished and in the mail! I want to have them done well in advance so I can enjoy the holidays more!} So then how could I sleep after the idea hit?! The best part was I had everything I needed, I didn't have to put in a late night order and wait for stamps to be delivered!! I came downstairs and whipped up a card! I wanted to keep it simple...easy, simple cards for Christmas (cuz I send out alot) Anyway...this is it! Tell me what you think...I am still going to play with it but this is the basic idea! I think it needs a background or wheel on the card base...something I just don't know what yet...if you have anything for me, let's hear it!
I also had time to do the sketch challenge that was on Splitcoast Stampers today...it's a simple one...I thought anyway. :) I love the green, blue and kraft color combo, it's so pretty. I wanted to use my DS Fall Flowers paper, so I took my inspiration from there. Happy Wednesday to ya'll...may you be able to find your mo-jo too!!

Both cards are adorable. Love the colors on the Christmas card and I'm really liking the kraft card - I'm going to try some. I bought the paper and haven't used it. Love the look. I think you've found your mojo. TFS :)
