Last minute Christmas cards

I started on my Christmas cards during the first week of November.  I colored the images, bought the paper, started planning a layout.  Yep, this year I was going to finish my cards early...

Or maybe the supplies would just sit for seven weeks and I'd finally make the cards this morning.

I love this cute little "candy elf" from Make it Crafty.  She's colored with my Spectrum Noirs.

I was playing with stamps from The Alley Way.  I just love the quirky fun designs.  Hopefully, Santa brings me some more sets to play with on Christmas.

CYP #193-ABChristmas

Happy Monday.  One more week of school until winter break, and this teacher is counting down the hours.  I don't know if your kids get better behaved in December because Santa's watching, but I do know that 8th graders get a whole lot worse when a break approaches.  I've definitely needed craft therapy.

This week's theme at Craft Your Passion is
Christmas ABC (Anything But a Card)

I played double duty this week.  First up is a wreath for my new house's door!

Rustic and simple-like me.

I've been dying to color, but I have so many finished images to put on cards, that I feel guilty pulling out my markers.  But then I thought of gift tags and so I used some super cute elves from Melonheadz to make some quirky tags.  (I made 20 of them.  They are all different-but follow the same sketch.  And yes, I ran out.  Apparently I need to tone down the gift buying.) 

Can't wait to see you practicing your ABC's at Craft Your Passion this week!

Christmas time!

I love this time of year!  The lights, the decor, the smells, the bunnies... bunnies?  Okay, so the image I used on this card is an Easter one, but for some strange reason, I always associate it with Christmas.  That gal just looks so festive in her red and green.

Supplies: Image-Saturated Canary, Paper-My Mind's Eye, Stamps-Stampin Up, Embellishments-Doodlebug, Color-Spectrum Noir

My hubby and I got some great gift cards for my mother-in-law, so this card is actually a gift card holder on the inside.  Happy holidays!

CYP #192-Let it...

I'm sorry that I haven't posted.  The holidays are so busy.  I've been crafting though.  Just not posting.  But I'm back, and just in time.  It's a new challenge at Craft Your Passion this week.  This week's theme is
Brrr... Just thinking about it makes me cold.  (Well that and the fact that it's only 3 degrees in chilly Utah)

Here's a card featuring a fun image by Robin's Fetish.

Supplies:  Robin's Fetish, Spectrum Noir markers, DCWV, Stampin Up

Enjoy the winter wonderland and make some snow cards this week!
