Trio of Christmas Cards

Happy Monday!  I hope you had a fun Halloween weekend.  The weather turned cold here over the weekend but the boys had fun trick or treating on Friday night.  It's so nice when Halloween falls on a weekend night so we don't feel rushed to get to bed for school the next days. I'm sure all the teachers appreciate it too.

I had time to play along on Saturday with the Muse Challenge.  I love the trio of cards that Michele made.  They are stunning. She challenged us to use our patterned paper (one sheet for all three cards). I've managed to use most of my 12x12 stash so I looked through my 6x6 pads for a pack that had two of the same cards.  I also decided to use one PaperSmooches stamps set for all three cards.




 Have a favorite of the three?  The first one above is my favorite of the three. Check out Michele's gorgeous inspiration below!

Hi Lynn! Your set is so pretty... I love the dots, and the Paper Smooches set has wonderful sentiments. Thank you so much for playing cards with me at the Muse... I never want this challenge to end, it has been such a joy to me, my first.

I like the first one best, but that's probably b/c I have a love affair with white (or off white). Great job. I should stamp my sentiments in different colours from time to time.

oh, all lovely in their own way, but I like the berries on the first :) Halloween was so much fun here too...lots of students saying "Hi Ms Plut" instead of Trick or Treat! LOL Have a great start to your week :) ox

Hi Sweet Lynn! Your take on Michele's trio is wonderful!!! All three are sweet, and if forced to choose, it would be card #2...no, wait, card #1...Oh heck, it's too hard to choose among these beauties. Love them all!!! Have a great week. Bev

Truly beautiful, all three of them! I can't decide which one I like best...but I am loving the deer one a teensy bit more, I guess. What a fabulous idea to use the same pattern paper on 3 cards! This is inspiring, Lynn!
