Since I haven't had a chance to stamp for fun, here is another card from my archives. This card was actually a sample for my brother to choose from last Christmas, but this was not the one he chose.
Hopefully I will be back to normal posting soon!

Are you curious yet? Winner is......

Wow, thanks for all the guesses that everyone made. At first I was begining to think that no one was going to guess the correct card that my brother chose. But finally, Cheryl came though with the correct answer 'Festive Trees' and that same day another correct answer came in from Tina.

So this is what I am going to do, BOTH of you are winners, YEAH! Cheryl and Tina email me your address and I will get your prizes out to you right away!

Here is what Cheryl and Tina had to say:

Are you Curious Yet?

Many of you know I have been making Christmas Card samples for my brother. For the past nine years I have been making their business Christmas cards and he had asked me to make them again this year. Are you curious to find out which card they chose?

I thought it might be fun to play a little guessing game with all of you, are you up for the challenge? I made eight samples of Christmas cards for my brother to choose from, I have posted all eight below.

Here is the challenge: Can you guess which card he chose? Everyone that guesses the correct card will be eligible to win a prize. I will chose a random winner from the correct guesses on Sunday November 11 at 8:00 pm CDT.

This is what you need to do to play:

Each card is labeled with it's own title, use that title for making your guess.
Leave your guess here on this post, ONE guess per person.
All guesses must be made by 7:00 pm CDT - Sunday 11/11/07.

Winner will receive a copy of the winning card, along with a surpise package of goodies! I will make it worth your while to play along! So if your ready to play, here you go! GOOD LUCK!

Festive Trees

Another 'Festive Favorites' for my brother to choose from. This time I used the trees from this set. Like I said yesterday I am really into using the Cuttlebug folder - snowflakes for the background. This card is like yesterday's with the exception of the colors I used and I also added a greeting on the front. What do you think?
I have one more card to show you tomorrow from the samples I made for him. I am actually off to deliver the samples to him this morning, I will let you know which card they choose.

Festive Snowmen

Today's sample card for my brother was made with the 'Festive Favorites' set. I Love the vintage look of this set, especially the snowmen! This is actually one of two cards that I made this past weekend using the same color combo along with the Cuttlebug snowflake folder. I have really been having fun with this folder, it just makes the perfect background for winter cards!
Before last year's 'In Color's' retired I had made sure that I ordered plenty of the card stock and stitched ribbon. I decided it was time to pull out some the the True Thyme and use it for this card. I think it adds to the vintage look of the stamp. What do you think?

Paper~ True Thyme, Bravo Burgundy, River Rock, Whisper White.
