Prickley Pear Rubber Stamps Monday Inspiration

Happy Monday!!!  I hope you enjoyed a restful weekend!  

Ok, the holidays are over BUT you know how much I love creating holiday cards.  I start right back up in January so that I can give out as many cards as my heart desires come Christmas.  No mad dash of last minute card making for me!  I even had enough to give to our sanitaion workers and mail lady this year!

 For my inspiration card today, I paired the sweet image: "Presents with Holly SM Red Rubber stamp" with the sentiment: "Gift of the Season".  The sentiment is a perfect fit for the "Flourished Oval Die" which I sponged to add a hint of drama.   I had a great time creating with these sweet stamps and die using my favorite color combo!  I will add this card to CCC14 February Challenge to use non-traditional colors as well as the challenges at the bottom of this post!  

For the inside, I kept it simple with just the black and white image in the lower corner.


I am also entering the following challenge:
Jingle Belles - Old and New - The OLD is the Candy Button which was included in a prize pkg.  I received a couple of years ago from RRR.  I was entry 440 something!  For the NEW I used stamps that were recently given to me by PPRS!


Today my husband and I celebrate our 24th Wedding Anniversary!  I get excited every January 13th as  it means we weathered another 365 days of ups and downs and are still together!  I thought it would be fun to share this gorgeous card my FIL picked out for us.  My Mom in-law had a bad few days struggling with Meniere's Disease and couldn't leave the house so she sent Dad to do the job, and what a beautiful job he did!  My photography doesn't do it justice.  It's beautiful with an abundance of glittering gold goodness!
