My most favorite card
Right now anyway! I love this card. It is cased except a few things, I didn't have the ribbon she used so I used red card stock in it's place. I love the use of the Stampin Up designer paper, love using the daisy punch (three punches, two red and one green) to make a poinsettia. I love using the sahara sand to make the swirls behind the Christmas tree, oh and I had the red star eyelet so I used that. Anyway just the colors and the combo of all of this is so cheery. I have seen and made a lot of Christmas cards this year but for now this one I really like. So to the person who inspired me, awesome card!!!
I made a few birthday cards with the card sketch of the week that I am going to post later, have to get them on the computer :) I used to scan my cards but they just don't look as nice as when I use the camera to take a picture. I guess the lighting and all makes them look more real.
It's almost Christmas! I am getting excited! I am one of those who refuses to run around like a chicken with my head cut off this time of year. I do things as simply as possible. I bought gift cards for teachers, got the presents I needed to get online and made my cards over the last two months. I have nothing to do! No cooking as we are going to my in-laws (although I am making some hors d'ouvres for Christmas Eve but won't do that until then), nothing to buy although I have gone to JoAnn's a few times to wander around the Christmas isles and enjoyed looking. Decorated a month ago, hmmm almost seems like chaos should reign! But it doesn't, I think I will make a small batch of Christmas sugar cookies with my 5 year old this afternoon. Now see even with this I make it easy and non-stressful. They taste just as good too :) I bought the sugar cookie mix. I bought the white chocolate chips and the cherries. All I have to do for this recipe is follow the cookie package directions, dump in some chips and cut up cherries and put them in the oven. Whatever the package makes is fine. I will not go nuts making 6 dozen cookies! When we've eaten them and they are gone, fine. I refuse to be stressed! So please slow down and think of how to de-stress your Christmas and have Peace and Joy this holiday season! Thank God for his wonderful gift :)
