It's Christmas card making mode now!

 Hello and welcome crafty friends!
Look at that, it's already almost halfway through
November, and I'm way behind making
my Christmas cards. My crafty mojo has
been MIA for the last 4 months or so,
and it finally reappeared at the end of October.
I did finally start on cards last month, and will
be posting about them soon. In the
meantime, here's a little something
that I came up with:

I'm finally playing with the Christmas Poinsettias card kit from
My Favorite Things, that I purchased in September. A lot
of die cutting, a snowflake embossing folder, a snippet of
paper, and some gold Stickles. Plus, the sentiment was
first stamped in black ink, then I heat embossed it with
clear embossing powder before die cutting it. 

I used another stamp from the same set to finish the inside:

I'm glad that I saved the cardstock that came with the kit, and
used what I already had on hand, because, you know, I 
really want to make those cards! LOL!
That's it for now. I appreciate that you stopped by for a visit!
Have a great day!

The Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers are guest elves at Christmas Kickstart Challenge #80!

 Hello and welcome!
This month at the
the guest elves are Edna and the sisters at the
For this month's challenge,
the idea is to use NON-TRADITIONAL products and/or
color combinations to make a Christmas card.
Of course, pairing those non-traditional items with, say,
a Santa hat and holiday sentiment will be essential.
Here's what I came up with:

I used an Autmn themed stamp set, and combined it with a couple
Christmas sentiments to create my card.

I searched my stash of papers and found this paper to fussy cut
that teeny tiny wreath to hang on the door!
I may have gone cross eyed the rest of the day. LOL!

Here's the inside:

I hope that you'll join our sister Jo, and the rest of the Sisterhood
and play along this month at Christmas Kickstart #80!
We look forward to seeing what you create!

Thanks for visiting! Have a great day!
