A Trio of Cards for FwF!

      Hi everyone.  What a wild and wooly couple of weeks.  The counter tops were installed in my kitchen this morning, and I am thrilled.  I see an end in sight, for that project.  My new thing keeping me from posting daily is my DH.  He landed in the hospital on me this past weekend, and we are battling new meds and lots of Dr.'s.  It is hard to teach an old dog new tricks, when they are use to being healthy and pill free.  I am sure some of you can relate.

     Here a few holiday cards I put together, using my Oct. 2013 KOM from Unity.  There are some really amazing stamps in that kit!  Please visit the Friends with Flair for some awesome inspiration, this week!  All of the people that post, do such amazing work!


 
This card has a bit of doodling, some twiggy papers from my scraps, and some MS punches.
 
 
Here I used more scraps, but I tried out some of the new Memory Box dies, that have been waiting forever for love.  Don't you just love that great big Unity sentiment?  There is a strip of embossed card stock, which was done with an SU! EF.
 
 
 
Last but not least, I used another strip of the embossing, made some sparkly candy canes, and added a Jolee's felt poinsettia.
 
     Hope everyone has an amazing fall weekend.  I hope to start putting all of my kitchen things away and do lots of cleaning.  It is quite chilly here in PA, and I am looking forward to doing some cooking and baking.  Thanks for visiting!

Fantastic cards for the holidays! Love the little felt candy canes - but those stamps are sensational too. Great set of cards!
Sounds like the kitchen is coming along great! Know you'll be glad when all is said and done.
Hang in there on your husband/medical issues. I know what you mean about being pill free and then having to load up on them! My husband is the same way!

Wow girl, when you get busy you get BUSY. Love the Christmas tree card and papers, and your heart corners are perfect. The pink gingham is so fun with the red, who knew!! And candy canes, what's not to love. All beautiful holiday cards.

Sorry to hear that your hubs was hospitalized, hope he is doing better now. Kitchen remodel, we just finished the bath and can't even image how long a kitchen would take, glad that is finishing up for you too.

Hugs
Sue

All 3 of your cards are pretty! Very happy little cards. The 3 little wispy trees are very nice framed in like that. The 2nd one is really pretty with that nice sentiment and flower on the lattice trim. The candy canes is my fav tho! Love the sparkle on them and how you carried over the red embossed paper like the other card. Thank you for sharing fun cards
