Let's first congratulate the randomly selected winner of last week's Inspired by Fall challenge, Amanda Laboy:
This is exactly what I pictured in my mind's eye when I think of an inspired by fall layout! Way to go Amanda.
To finish this festive week, here is a card duo by Wendy McKee:
Wendy says, "As Christmas is coming I wanted to make a start on my Christmas cards. The new Christmas line from Dear Lizzy was perfect for this! For the Noel card - I like to sometimes leave parts of my cards blank, especially with white as it makes a great contrast to the other colours and makes them pop. But then you are left with a lot of empty space... a little sewing can add some detail to this - a great and cheap way of adding interest! For the Happy Holidays card - there are some larger patterns in the Dear Lizzy Christmas collection...these are perfect for cutting up and using as embellishments on your pages or cards. The paper called Garland Greetings is a great example of this as you can see on the card. Just a few parts of the mistletoe creates a beautiful frame for the sentiment on this card. Looks really effective but really easy!"
