Love birds - a non-traditional Winter :)

Happy Thanksgiving to all! I hope your day is a wonderful one, filled with wonderful memories and happy blessings. This has been an exciting and VERY BUSY week for us - between school concerts, ds's Thanksgiving play, hosting dinner at our house (17 people in total - wowza!) Needless to say, Im in a rush now to get some crafting done! Tee hee!

This month for the uber fun SOTC card swap, lovely Lindalee asked us to make a winter or Christmas card BUT using non-traditional colors - oh love it! THis is also my "winter" entry for KKS Challenge ~ to make a card using winter as the theme.

I found some delicious My Mind's Eye Colorful Christmas collection paper at my LSS and bought all they had - each one double sided and it was heartbreaking to have to chose one over the other! (why do they do that to us, rofl - surely they know we love them both!) I went with SU! papers of rich razzleberry, melon mambo, bermuda bay - super non traditional. I love, love, love color but usually for my holiday cards, they tend to be a little less ....... Loud *grin!*

Make sure you check back in a few days - you will see lots of new releases from the DT at the Inktegrity and Busy Beauty Boutique - some super cute images about to hit the crafting world!!! :)

Love you!

Deets: All cardstock from SU; Dsp = My Mind's Eye Christmas Collection; Stamp = stampavie; inside sentiment = SU; colored with prismamarkers; Martha stewart border punch, K & Co brads; 3D dots; Doodlebug buttons & SU Ribbon; Tombo


  1. Oh Kelly this card is soooo adorable! I love the image and the cute stockings hanging below them. Love the fun colors, it's funny I always love non-traditional colors but tend to go with the traditional colors. But I think I'm getting better at it. Happy Thanksgiving!

  2. Oh Kelly, these are toooooo sweet!! You know I just adore birds - that image is precious! The colors are fabulous and I love all the different DPs and elements! I really hope one wings it's way to my door! {HUG}
