I'm So Far Behind ...

Would you believe "I still don't have enough Christmas cards made"!!!!!



For every challenge I've done in the last month, I've used Christmas as my theme figuring I'd be ahead of the game that way ... NOT!! So, I'm having to do what some people call "cheater cards" ... (those without stamping). Actually there is a little stamping here ... I've stamped the base card with my AMuse snowflake stamp in Brillance Ice Blue (can't handle all that white space!). And, I have added a sentiment! But the beauty is in the images which are from the Thomas Kinkade Christmas Series Paper Pack. (click on the link to take you right to this paper pack -- check out all the gorgeous images)
These four cards were made from ONE 8x8 sheet ... isnt' that awesome!! I purchased this set awhile back from Cornish Heritage Farms and forgot I had them ... ooopps!! The images and coordinating papers in this pack are AMAZING!!!
The 1-1/2" strip of paper is one of the "accent" papers included in the pack! If you click for a closer view, you will see I've added a little highlighting with an American Crafts glitter pen.
The base card for this "quickies" is a ValuPack of A-8 Ivory cards/envelopes I purchased at Michael's through the summer months (50 - $5.00). I bought a pack of Ivory and a pack of White ... couldn't pass up the price!! Envelopes included ... CAN'T BEAT THAT!!!
Hope you like them ... gotta go ... more to do!! Thanks for stopping!!!

  2. These are beautiful, Mom! I've been looking at all of your Christmas cards and they are all so pretty. I like the sprig of green you used.
