Too hot to stamp...

We've had temps of 85-90* for about a week or so here in southcentral Alaska, which is NOT the norm. I am not a heat person and basically shut down in temps over 80*(we lived in the CA Mojave Desert for 3 yrs...I hibernated the entire time!).When I went to the Christmas Stampin' All Year Long blog I was excited to see that the challenge this week, hosted by Vicki of Summerthyme Studios, was to create a card without using any stamped images. I breathed a sigh of relief, as my hot, lazy bottom really didnt want to dig through the cabinet for a stamp set, then try and figure out colors, then ink and color, etc.

I've had some embellishments by Debbie Mumm that I bought a few years ago because I thought they were such a great deal on Christmas clearance. Then sadly they were pushed to the back of the stash and forgotten about. When I rearranged my stamp cabinet recently I had come across them and put them out front where I wouldnt forget about them and today I knew they were a great choice for the challenge.

Here are the 2 cards I made for the challenge. As always, I appreciate you stopping by and looking!

Supplies used:
Tree card: Mellow Moss,Riding Hood Red and Always Artichoke(Stampin'Up!),designer paper by MemoryBox 'Frost' collection. Tree and Frame embellishments by Debbie Mumm, brads from Stampin'Up!, Cuttlebug
Snowman card: Bashful Blue, Whisper White and Brushed Silver(Stampin'Up!),designer paper from MemoryBox 'Frost' collection,Snowman and snowflake embellishments from Debbie Mumm

  1. Hey Lisa! wow, 80 -90 degrees in Alaska. That's hot! Glad you were able to play along in our challenge this week again. Your two cards are AWESOME!! I love the framing around the Christmas tree on your first card and the scenic look to your second card. Both are very pretty. Thank you for playing along in our challenge again. It's always nice to see your cards!
