Below you will find cards made with the Chill in the Air set.  I also used the calendar set with the 
first card.

How perfect this set is to make a Save the Date card and decorate it for the appropriate season.

I have always loved silver embossing on navy.

I wanted to show a ribbon on the single branch, I can see using this as a Christmas card, too.

This is our final day of the blog hop and I hope you enjoyed how the design team showcased them.
Good luck in the drawings and thanks for hopping with us.


  1. Pretty cards. I like the ribbon and color on your last card.

  2. Lovely selection of cards - like what you have done.

  3. Shirley--these cards are all wonderful!!! I love the save the date one! And the second one with the embossing is fabulous. But I think my favorite one is the 3rd one with just the touch of ribbon! TFS

  18. Hi Shirley! I'm so sorry I've waiting so long to join the blog hop, but wanted to let you know that I've checked out all your projects from it, and WOW! Your tiger card is awesome! I love the way the background mimics the stripes on the tiger! What a great idea! I really like the masculine colors on your duck cards. Your Out on the Town lady is really pretty! I love the colors you used on that card.
    The Chill in the Air was my favorite from this release so I love that you made three cards with it! And you're totally right...the calendar set would be perfect for save the date cards! My daughter is getting married next summer, so thanks for the idea! I LOVE LOVE LOVE the silver embossed tree on the dark blue cardstock! That is SO striking!!! And so are all the layers on the third card...they're all beautiful!
