Snowing Money

Catchy title - right!  LOL!  Wouldn't that be wonderful if it really did snow a couple of dollars every  now and then!  I guess I'd just have to move up north!!
 


Well, the "Money" comes from my first card.....this is for the challenge at Art Impressions Stamps and they're asking to see Cash Keepers!  What could be easier with this cute image and sentiment from Paper Smooches.....easy design that I also used on a card last week, a couple of brads, some ribbon....and last but not least - MONEY!  I may just have to give this card to myself now!






From my second card you get "Snow"!  I used the sketch at CAS(E) this Sketch, added the big snowflake (die) from Impression Obsession, glittered it up a bit, added a brad with a purple gem in it, and then stamped the CTMH sentiment.  I'll also enter this in the challenge at CAS-ual Friday - over the edge.

Two quick cards - but I also have two more completed for Christmas now!!

Hope everyone has a great weekend.........and thanks for stopping by.........
Lynn

Snowing money - that's a weather phenomenon nobody would complain about. Your money card is wonderful, I love that image and sentiment. The second one is lovely, very elegant and I love the little splash of purple.

Carla said...

what a cute card! I need to find some of those in my stocking!

Marilyn said...

Love that white card Lynn. That single gem brad and the coloured ink is stunning with all the white. Nice snowflake die too.
Now the money card... this is so, so cute! That's such a great idea to have the money inside the ribbon like that, a perfect sentiment and fun image... I love Paper Smooches!

Vicky Hayes said...

Two great cards Lynn! What a brilliant money holder - I love that punning sentiment! And the second card is a study in CAS gorgeousness!

Beverley said...

Super fun cards, if only money did come from snow! Love the white & glittery snowflake it really caught my eye.

Great Cash Card!! Love the reindeer, he's so cute. Boy, even I wouldn't complain if cash floated down with the snowflakes.
Love the CAS white snowflake card. Elegant and serene, so pretty. Great job on both!

The first one is so cute with the sentiment just perfect with the money. The second one is so elegant...
I was away on a week's break to Melbourne in Australia - it was quite nice, just got back this morning. Happy to be back to blogging.
Have the new glasses been fitted and how is the adjustment with them?
Much love,

bwahaha ;) Let me assure you, as a Canadian, that it doesn't snow money up here either. Dangit.
(Of course, if it did, would we tell you? lol)
LOVE the eyeballs on that deer, and what a cool idea to tuck the money in right on the front!
As for that GORGEOUS snowflake...what a perfect take on the sketch! Love the rhinstone brad in the centre too - so pretty :)

Carol L said...

These are both fantastic, and I just love the "bucks for you" card! Giving it to yourself sounds like the best idea ever ;)
Your 2nd card is sheer elegance and so pretty! You should enter it into the CAS-ual Fridays CFC75 which perfectly fits their "over the edge" challenge!

Alissa said...

These are great, Lynn. I swear you make me panic when you post Christmas cards. I especially love the first one - that's awesome!

Dana Nelson said...

Lovely snowflake card!!

Margaret said...

Just think, at a penny a flake you could make a tidy sum in one snowfall. A blizzard could mean a trip around the world and all of the crafting supplies you could ever want or need! sigh...if only...

LOVE both cards! The plaid and the red bow are so festive and I love the funny sentiment with your buck! The CAS snowflake card is absolutely stunning! Perfection!!

Tracey McNeely said...

Both of your cards are fabulous!

Shelly Schmidt said...
