It's Day 4 of Verve's Spotlight Hop, and we're featuring Holiday Greetings.  I have two CAS cards to share with you today.  I don't know what's gotten into me lately.  CAS cards are actually a lot harder for me to make, yet that's where I keep ending up with this release.  It certainly has me baffled.  LOL
I also used the Plain Jane "Joy to the World" on my first card.

I thought the flakes in the set would be fun to combine with the "Joy" PJ.  It's hard to see in the photo because of all the white, but I also included a punched border along the bottom.



I went the "krafty" route with my second card.  I paper pieced the tree with the Lively Collection from Authentique and added some embossed white snow drifts.  I stamped the stars, (or flakes) in the background, with Fresh Snow ink by Papertrey, and added the sentiment at the top with some scrap pieces of dp.  Lastly I added a sweet little Martha Stewart punched snow flake with a PTI button.

That's it!!  Be sure to stop by the Verve Forum for the release party tonight:  9-11 pm Eastern
