TSG131- 5 quick & easy

Hello everyone, can you believe that it is release week already?! This week we've got some AWESOME stamp sets that are gong to be released so make sure you come back every day for sneak peeks ;) To start of the festivities, TSG has a great challenge that is aimed at helping you to get your holiday cards done in a snap.

The theme of the challenge is to create a set of 5 quick and easy holiday cards and you can find out all of the details about this challenge (as well as find out how you can win a TSG gift certificate simply by playing along!)by visiting this post on the TSG blog.

Not only do I have a set of 5 quick and easy cards to share with you today but I am going to be continuing on with the challenge all week long by creating a set of 5 cards for each of the FIVE new stamp sets that are to be released on Saturday!!

For my first set of cards, I was completely inspired by this card that creator Michele shared with me last week. I absolutely LOVE her simple design and as soon as I saw it, I couldn't wait to ink up my stamps from the Holiday Tags set and get started!! I  kept the design pretty much the same but changed the colors and stamps.
