3 lay-outs, 4 cards and a coaster!!!

Holy crap, I have not scrapped this much in months & months!!! Had the BEST TIME @Citrus Tree Studio this week-end {thanks to the entire DT & Cindy!}. I only went outdoors once all week-end and that was to get the mail. LOL!!! The hubs called these past 48 hours "a scrap-a-palooza". :) :)

I'm not going to put everything on my blog from this week-end. Instead I'm just going to post my favorite cards which were a challenge by Rita. A very simple challenge. We needed to make a set of 3 cards and use cs, pp, ribbon, a large embellie & a sentiment.

I went with Christmas cards and used this fun Crate pp ("chimney" is from last year; "festive" is from 2010). I mixed them up, kept it simple and came up with these.

{Crate pp, chip, sticker, stampin' up stamp, stickles & offray ribbon}

{Crate pp, chip, stickles, Fancy Pants stamp, & offray ribbon}
{Crate pp, chip, sticker, Inkadinkado stamp & offray ribbon}

I swear, one could put offray ribbon on a ratty paper bag and it would make it pretty. I {love} offray ribbon!!!

Thanks for coming by! Have a great week!! :)
