Have a Jolly "Holly" Christmas

Hi all, Madge here for another Wonderful Wednesday at OCS.  I'm in panics-ville mode as the "Most Happiest Day of the Year" approaches.  I've decided to kill two birds with one  stone for my post today........  Double Duty, so to speak.P1010902 copy
I've chosen the beautiful  Whimsy Stamp, "Holly" - available at OCS and turned her into a Nugget Candy Card filled with a Hershey's Nuggets surprise for a very sweet friend.  This is #9 with three more to make before "the big day".  These will be hand delivered - unlike two that were mailed!  Yikes, that was expensive!
I Stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo black ink onto Xpress It blend Cardstock and colored it with my favorite medium.....copic markers.  Cardstock layers are from a stash of paper scraps that I have been neglecting to use.  (I won't bore you with details).
Whimsy's "Holly" stampCopic Markers; Memento Tuxedo Black ink; P1010890Viva Decor pen (snow); Cherry Lynn Fanciful Flourish;Glossy Accents; Stickles (on flowers) and Brads, flowers and punchies from stash.
I apologize, but once again my links do not seem to be working without giving me an error message...... grrrrr. 
I want to wish all of you  A Very Merry Christmas  - from our house to yours. See you here next week.

Dress it up or Dress it down

Hi all, Madge here for a Quick Christmas Card.  Are you feeling the pressure yet??  I am, with still a few special cards to make, baking, cleaning, etc. etc.  I have a Quick Christmas Card for you today.P1010882 copy
The only stamping involved is the Merry Christmas sentiment.
Die Cuts are Memory Box Dies, which are overlaid.  I used double-sided tape on the ornament base, added Glitter Ritz glitter and pressed the overlay on top. I did the same for the silver edging.  More frugal than purchasing those expensive sparkle sheets.
Until next time.   hugz, Madge
