Festive Retreat Part 1

Hi everyone, 

Thanks for stopping by and for all your wonderful comments. I'm honored to have you here and I truly appreciate each of you more than you know! 

The cards I'm belatedly sharing with you today were the first three of five demoed during the first Virtual Christmas Retreat in my Facebook group almost a month ago... 4 live sessions within 24 hours!  Life has gotten in the way of non-challenge blogging since then, but I should be back to a better schedule now, and will post the other sessions in part 2 next week!

Session 1...

Card: Unbranded white, and Clarity's clear parchment and DP
Groovi Plates: Linda's Snowflake Owl and Mel's Nouveaux Arch
Tools and embellishments: Clarity and Pergamano embossing tools, Perga color pens and rhinestones from my stash

Session 2 version 1 (to save both my voice and time, I talked though this design)...

Card: Unbranded white and black, and Clarity's clear and silver parchment
Groovi Plates: Picot Rectangles, Candle Window, and Rosie and Brick Wall
Tools and embellishments: Rectangle Picot dies, Peace and Love Nested Window dies, Clarity and Pergamano embossing tools, and Perga liner pencils

Session 2, version 2...

Card: Unbranded white and black, and Clarity's clear parchment
Groovi Plates: Picot Rectangles, Candle Window, and Rosie and Brick Wall
Tools and embellishments: Rectangle Picot dies, Clarity and Pergamano embossing tools, and Perga liner pencils

Challenges (all session 2, version 1)... 
#390 Use Snippets at Pixie's Snippets Playground - it's great to be back in the playground!

I'll be back soon with another creation, so I hope you'll join me then,

  2. These are all beautiful cards. But of course, I have a favorite...the second one! Because I saw it in real life when it hit our mailbox. So pretty, and it was our first Christmas card for this season. Thank you again, Em! Your cards always makes our day!
