Dynamic Duos #78, Snippets and 2 new Members


Its my favorite part of blogging  - to welcome 2 new members to my blog:


and 


Annelies is from Belgium and unfortunately I still can't look at her blog - google does not let me - perhaps you are going to be more successful than I....
Cammy is from New Jersey - close by to where I live and we met at the Mama Elephant Birthday bash in Hoboken. We went to the Edison stamp show together and had a blast! Her beautiful blog is linked  - pay her a visit if you have time. 

Of course I have a welcome picture for both of you:



I took it last year at the Grounds for Sculpture, which is just a fantastic place to visit! Unfortunatley I don't know the artist who made this sculpture. I really like it - it looked gorgeous in the mist.....

Guess what - it going to be more Holiday cards - I just don't think I'll ever have enough......I am so happy I started early this year - my pile has been growing nicely.........
I am playing with the Dynamic Duos again - I like the elegant color combination.


  


I made two versions of the same card using the inlaid die-cut technique. I used my new Memory Box die - Grand Merry Christmas, that I won on the Snippets Playground - thanks, Di!. Isn't it beautiful?



I used some baubles from the Memory Box Advent Calendar die set and a Hero Arts bauble, that I stamped and adorned with little green gems. 




For the second card I used a Martha Stewart punch for the holly.

And of course I used quite a few snippets for both cards - the only requirement to play in the Snippets playground - here I come again Di.....
I will also link this with the CHNC challenge - Anything Christmas

Cornelia, you made two stunning cards with your new die from Pixie's!! I like the second one best because I'm sort of freak about Christmas holly - just love how you've used it!! Hugs, Darnell
