My Shoebox - Tim Holtz cards

First, let me apologize for not posting Chris's shoebox swap card - I don't know where it is.  If you have been inside my house, you probably aren't surprised to hear that.  I will post it when I find it, though.

So, I promised to show you my card, and not only did I design a card beforehand, I made one while I was there, because Tim Holtz has so many great stamps, you could make the same card a hundred times and they would all be different.  Here are my cards:

These are both based on Tim's second Christmas tag in 2009, if you want to see the tut.  I just used painted cardboard flowers and corners instead of the metal ones that he sells.   It's pretty fancy for a card with only one layer.

Challenges:
allsorts - free and easy
Craft your days away - vintage
ECP Challenge - gold
Less is More - shades of blue
Card and scrap - punches
Craft Garden - bird (first card)
Crafty Ann - uplifting sentiment
Art Impressions - distressing

As always,you can find lots of challenges to play in at Feline Playful.

Your cards are just lovely. I wish I could live the life I imagined, but I would be broke and my house wouldn't hold all the stamps I want!! :)
