adventures almost missed

lookie-lookie!  My card was chosen for the showcase on Stamping 411 last week, and I almost missed it, I was concentrating so hard on this week's sketch!  Which, since I mentioned it, is how I designed this card:
stamp set - Kindness Matters; ink - Baja Breeze; card stock - Very Vanilla (smooth and textured), Baja Breeze; designer series paper - Holly Berry Bouquet; Big Shot with Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder; Victoria crochet trim; Brights Designer button

I also almost missed posting my One Layer - Snow card  for Less is More this week - I made it Sunday, but forgot to post it:
stamp sets - ThankYou Kindly, Serene Snowflakes; ink - Wisteria Wonder, Concord Crush; card stock - Naturals White; punches - various circles; Dazzling Details, sponge dauber

Oh, and I don't want to miss telling you that I CASEd this from Connie Babbert.  I saved a copy of her card when I saw it, more than two years ago!  I've cleaned out my "inspiration" samples several times since then, but hers stayed there because I think it's simply elegant.  Or, elegantly simple.  Both, really.

Hopefully I'll be finished this week with the 10-11 hour days I've been putting in at work, so I can get some Christmas gift-crafting done and stop (almost) missing fun stamping stuff!

This looks fab Kathe, the spots as a background to the snowflakes work really well.
Thanks so much
