Case of the Mondays

Ugh. This cold did not go away by this morning, as I was hoping. I mean, it's not a full fledged cold (thank goodness), but it's annoying enough that I didn't think that I'd be super productive if I went to the office. It'd be really un-public-health-y if I went to the office sniffling and being gross, huh? Good thing I had my work computer at home to take care of some things.

Since I decided not to go to spin until I was feeling closer to 100%, I had some extra time to make 2 cards, instead of the usual 1. I decided to go with a Christmas theme again. For the first card, I wanted to use some new patterned paper and ribbon (check and check). For the second card, I wanted to do a card using my new Distress Inks but it was starting to get messy, so I decided to go in a different direction. I took out some gold embossing powder that I'd been wanting to use and picked out a berry stamp that I hadn't used yet. The new direction turned out to be "masculine Christmas card," given its darker colors. I like how it's shimmery, without being too blatant.
