Donna and Emily have again given us sixteen very different cards. A few were simple to make, several were complex! The one I liked the best was the tenth one down, then the nineth or maybe it's the fifth one, no, I think it's the last one. Well, they're all beautiful cards and are very different. (Sorry for the blur on some of them; even with my elbows on the table, I still can't shoot photos up close!)

Because I will be going to a Christmas Card Gallery hosted by Donna and Emily with Stampin' Up in about two weeks, I decided to see if I could use up some of my supplies to make room for new stock which I know I will want when I see the new catalog.
The Stampin' Up products used here are Perfect Plum and Pale Plum cardstock, Perfect Plum ink pad, and the scallop punch. The coordinating eyelash yarn was given to me by my cousin, Barbara, who knits neck scarves as gifts. The layout idea is from the Sheet Load of Cards website.

After my sister, Janice (Arts & Craps), showed me the anniversary cards she has been making using black and white paper with red accents, I had to try it for myself. Not being as creative as she is (I copy other people's designs with very few original ideas of my own), I came up with two versions shown here. The paper is from Making Memories Black Tie paper pack, the ribbons from Offray, the red hearts from Creative Living Network, and the metal dots from Colorbok. The 'flowers' are from various packs of discontinued stackable prepunched kits. I also dotted the top swirls in several places using Stickles Candy Cane from Ranger.
