More Christmas Cards!

Who said making Christmas cards was not fun?!  I surely didn't!  My first attempt was okay. (Shown below), but as I got into the Christmas Spirit, the creative juices started to flow! 

So far I've made six...LOL.  I make cards like I wrap presents: slowly and carefully!  I've really enjoyed making these and plan on doing a few more!  Thanks for looking!  Card layout info:  Paper:  DCWV.

My first attempt...A Christmas Card

I know, I'm a dork! I have been seeing so many beautiful handmade Christmas cards out and about the internet that I decided, "what the heck, I'll give it a go!"  I went to my local craft store and bought some beautiful festive paper and matching embellishments.  Not too shabby for my first try! I plan on making a bunch more if I'm not feeling too bad tomorrow (getting two fillings, bahh!)  Otherwise it looks like my date on Friday night will be with my scrap table and some festive holiday cardstock!  Thanks for stopping by!  Card Info:  Paper:  DCDW.  Ink: Ranger Industries.

She Is...

My baby girl...Can't believe how fast she has grown! I titled this layout she is and included all of the things that she is to us as a family.  I call her my "Bellon Wellon" after one of my favorite Jerry Lewis movies-The Ladies Man, with Ms. Mellonwellon!  I loved her!  Anyhoo, I did this layout for a contest that I have entered with  They've got a bevvie of a prize for the first place winner.  I'm hoping that I was able to follow the sketch they provided for the contest.  It sure was a lot of fun to make, and only took me all of about...hmm.....3 weeks?!  Too much stuff going on with Thanksgiving, Christmas and all.  Thanks for stopping by!  Layout Info:  Paper:  K and Company, Flowers: Me and my Cricut Machine, Ink:  Ranger Industries, Brad:  Recollections, Ribbon: Martha Stewart Crafts, Font: PC using Microsoft Word.
