Very Merry!

Today was a good day for me! I spent some time crafting with two lovely friends this morning and then this afternoon baked some very yummy cookies (see separate post).  I've been working on getting my Christmas cards done early so I can get them all sent out and out of the way - less to think about.

I love snowflakes so I have been dying to break out the Snowflake Soiree stamp set now that my craft room is finally set up and functional.  And to top it all off, I totally fell in love with the Dynamic Duos colour challenge this week - the very merry colours of Real Red and Bermuda Bay.  I really wanted to wet emboss on this card and unfortunately Real Red embossing powder is not available so I substituted for Cherry Cobbler with both the embossing powder and the ink.  I still think the colours look good together.

I also thought that this card would work with the CAS-ual Friday's Challenge which is to use either dry or heat embossing.  As you can see, I used heat embossing on the "Merry" part of my cards.

So here are my card creations, I hope you enjoy:

And my favourite part, the heat embossing on the Merry!
