 The special stamp set we have for you this month is:

"Lucky You"


 The mini stamp set we have for you this month is

"Take Time Mini"
                                                      






Today's Technique Junkies Newsletter-inspired card is called a Z Foldover Card.  It is similar to a Joy Fold card, except for the extra panel, which is formed by the Z-fold.  Because of the plaid designer paper, I used just the pine bough and some red and green bling on the front.


The inside uses a sentiment from another MFP Christmas set called You Are an Angel -- and again a little bit of bling.


My second card is more simple.


My friend Rosemary said that the cardinal sitting on the deer's back looks like one of those Angry Birds!

Lovely cards - embossed trees look great with it.

The Z fold card is so beautiful! I love the delicate colouring of the deer and cardinal...if that's an angry bird, Christmas will soon cheer it up! Wish we had cardinals here although we do have some beautiful birds!

Two lovely cards! Your z fold over card is so pretty, but I really love your fawn card - pretty blue sky with the sweet fawn and cardinal!

Like the style of the Joyfold card & the Bambi scene created. The embellishments on the Joyfold card are wonderful. The Bambi scene is complimented wonderfully by the background paper.
