I'm Baaaaaaaaaaaaaack! :o)

There really is no excuse I could give about why I have neglected my poor blog for such a long time.  None whatsoever, so I won't even try.  I'm back, the creative juices are flowing, and I'm ready to share once more.  :o)


After tallying more than 75 people/families to whom we will be sending Christmas cards, I came to the conclusion I would go NUTS if I had to make 80 cards of the same design.  Last year I made two different designs and I loved them both.  You can see them here and here.  I absolutely ADORE "Dasher" and keep wondering if I could just work him in somehow again this year.  Hm...

Anyhow, I've decided to go with five or six different designs and I spent last night making mock-ups.  Nine cards later, I had three I liked.  Here's the first:



 It is absolutely a CASE of one Jaydee's cards.  I saw hers, fell in love (I have this thing for snowflakes) and went about making it "mine".  Can you see the little snowflakes VersaMarked on in the background? I'm pretty pleased with the results. :o) 


This card uses:
Stamp Sets: "Serene Snowflakes", PTI's "Signature Christmas"
Papers: Bashful Blue, Night of Navy, Whisper White
Inks: Bashful Blue, VersaMark, Night of Navy
Accessories: rhinestones

I'll be back in the studio this evening, playing around with a couple more sets.  I'll have a new card for you tomorrow.  Hooray! :o)

LOL...at your mom above!!!

I love this card and the ones you made before...so simple and elegant. I need to finalize my card and just sit and do it and stop changing my mind!!! Maybe I'll copy you and do a few cards....you have me thinking. I love Bashful Blue!

LOVE the "Peace on Earth" card - just simple and beautiful.

Best wishes with all your cards - and kuddos for making them all! Absolutely love making and receiving handmade cards, but resorted to good 'ole Shutterfly this year!
