Hello! It’s a double post day! I have a new StampInsanity Challenge to share with you, as well as another card for the Smeared & Smudged 12 Days of Christmas. Let’s start with StampInsanity…
This week’s challenge is “All About Me!” Which, if you read my post from yesterday, isn’t tooo hard of a topic for me! ;} You are to make a card that you would give to yourself. Fun right?
I think this card fits me to a tee! Bold colors, wacky patterns, and a little bit of glitter! This is one of the new Holiday Maddies. I bet you expected Nicholette or Pierette, right? Originally, I was going to use one of them…but then I remembered this Maddie, with her beautiful cape and her candle…and really that is me to the core.
I colored her hair to look just like mine (of course!), and I gave her a purple cape…also just like mine! I used my colored pencils on her.
The only thing that’s not me is the color of her eyes. I wish I had green eyes…I’ve got brown. The “Hard Rockin’” senti is also StampInsanity, of course! Here’s the rest of the Groovy Gurlz of Ward 2. Please show them some love!

On to my Christmas card. If you visited me on Monday, then you saw my Bleak December card featuring Poe peeking out of a beautiful wreath. I wanted to show you the wreath again, but done completely differently.
This is a super easy card that has a lot of pop. I stamped my wreath and embossed it. But before I mounted it on to my card, I used a bunch of teeny red brads to look like berries.
I added a sweet gold bow, and I also embossed the edges of the card in gold. Simple layout on this one, but I think it’s quite elegant. Now it’s time for you to visit the Jolly Bloggers…posted on my sidebar. Have an inspiring day!!!
