handmade christmas cards


i wanted to share the christmas cards that i made this year. the stamp set is from american crafts...isn't that ornament so sweet?! although i still have not worked myself up to making everyone on the list a handmade card, i did about half of them this year, so 16 total were handmade by me. that is a lot of trimming and gluing!

color challenge no.20

this week i remembered to check the deadline for dawn's raspberry suite color challenge. last week i missed it by a couple of days! goes life. the challenge colors this time are soooo cute and cozy and i just loved working on this one. i decided to make a cute little tag this time, as i am getting quite the collection of cards.

but if you've got time, check out the card drives that jennifer mcquire (jennifermcquire has been makes you feel so good to create something cute to send to a special little child. i sent some around halloween time, one for a girl named kate & one for a little boy named eric. she's added a lot more kids this time around so go make some cards!!!

do you have your christmas shopping completed yet? i sure do not! i have barely started...i've just been busy with stuff around the house. and both the laptop and desktop computers died this we had to go buy a new one over the weekend. talk about an unexpected expense...especially around the holidays!
hope your week is fantastic!

cute new owl

my birthday was a couple of weeks ago and i told my mom all that i wanted was this cute little owl die-cut. of course, she sent that one thing along with a package of other fun scrapbooking stuff, which i love love love! i made a couple of cards to share using my cute new owl. the only hard thing is gluing down the eyes and beak because the pieces are soooo tiny.

it's just starting to get cold where i live and i'm already ready for springtime! once christmas is over, just bring back that warm summer sun, mother nature. i can skip all of the cold stuff!
