Christmas remembered adventures

Earlier today I heard from some friends who are planning to attend my Card Buffet - the more, the merrier, I think!  While thinking about putting together additional kits, I remembered that I hadn't posted this card, which I specifically created for the buffet based on the beautiful inspiration photo at Festive Friday:
stamp set - Ornamental Pine; ink - Real Red, Old Olive, Soft Suede; card stock - Whisper White, Real Red 
You can see that I was inspired by the greenery on the chair backs in addition to the elegant red & white setting.  It was a well-liked card Thursday, so I'm sure I'll need more kits for Saturday.

A little later, I was browsing through some of my favorite blogs and admiring the Pink Christmas cards posted to Jingle Belles, where Lauren and Stephanie are donating $4 to the Susan G. Komen Foundation for every card linked, and suddenly remembered that I have designer series paper in my stash that includes pink, so of course I had to make another card!  I used Clean & Simple Stamping's fall-to-layout 311 since the designs I chose were in strips:
stamp set - Endless Wishes; ink - Gumball Green (retired), Cherry Cobbler (on envelope); card stock - Gumball Green (retired); designer series paper - Snow Festival (retired)
There is still a little time to post cards at Jingle Belles if you want to join the fun/fund-raising!
