Santa and Hug Me

He's checking his list, he's checking it twice...

My adorable Fall kit arrived last month and this is the first chance I've had to use it! :)

First up is Edwin.

I reached far into my stash and found these Christmas papers.  I have no idea who makes them.  The ribbon is new, I found it at Michaels earlier this year.  I didn't keep track of my colors, please forgive me.

Next up is this cutie for the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog. The challenge was to create using pink and yellow.   This presented a little challenge for me as I didn't have any pink or yellow paper.  I'm really on a mission to use some of my personal stash before I run out and buy more paper!   For those of you that know me, you know that I've been stamping for nearly 20 years.   I have demonstrated for Stampin' Up, Close to My Heart, and a host of other companies.   I may have sold off many of the stamps, but I kept almost all the papers.   I went digging through my old Close to My Heart stash and found some adorable papers.  I have no idea what collection they are from or if they're still available (I'm guessing no).   I used some silk flowers and ribbon from Michaels.  The leaves are from Sizzix.  I also used some paper flowers from Prima.

    Hi Samara. I've been visiting your blog for some time now and you have become a great inspiration to my own works of art. I absolutely love your work. I've also enjoyed your videos on YouTube and hope you have more to share in the future.

    Ooh,Samara, your cards are gorgeous…both of them. Love the clean look of your cards. The Edwin card is wonderful—love the colours here, but I especially like the Tilda card ‘cause I’m a Tilda addict...LOL. I have this stamp too. I adore this Tilda—I just want to hug her. Wonderful soft colours and the colouring is beautiful done. Very lovely flower arrangement—I like your die cut for the leaves.
    Thanks for joining the fun at our first Magnolia-licious Challenge.
