More Cedar and Pine for December Joyful Stars Blog Hop

Welcome back to another Joyful Stars Blog Hop! We are a group of Close to My Heart consultants who share something each month on the 9th and at 9PM EST. If you are coming from Betty Locco's blog you are on the right track. (The complete lineup is on Joyce's blog in case you get lost.) Have fun being inspired! 

I've been having fun with Close to My Heart's Cedar and Pine paper packet and the December Stamp of the Month Reindeer Crossing created several cards inspired by several sketch challenges.  My first card follows this week's Case This Sketch challenge.  I am also entering it into this week's Color My Heart Color Dare challenge.

My second card was inspired by the sketch at Try Stampin' on Tuesday.  I used the Dash of Joy stamp set to complete the card:

My final card follows the Stick it Down sketch.  The sparkle on the pine boughs and background dots were made with the Clear Shimmer Brush.  The pine cones were embellished with Golden Rod Stickles.

Here is another card that I posted yesterday using the Tuesday Morning Sketch.  (The gift image and holly leaves are from a recent Constant Campaign offering called Traditional Holiday.)

Which card do you like best?

Now it's time to head over to Debi Brile's blog --I'm sure you'll be inspired by what she has to share.

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a wonderful week filled with fun and creativity!
