Well, I bet you thought I fell of the edge of the earth. That darn thing they call a "job" just keeps getting in the way of what is really important, my blog!!
In between long work days the last few weeks, I scrambled to get my holiday cards, gifts and baking done. I didn't go crazy like I've done in the past, but feel good about what I have gotten done before this weekend.
So I am going to try and catch up on some posting today and tomorrow. It will be a fairly quiet Christmas at our house, just the three of us. Kinda looking forward to sitting on the couch watching Christmas movies and drinking hot chocolate, with a splash of Irish Cream of course.
Ok- so here are a couple cards I sent out this year.
I came across this idea about a year ago on the web here. What a great card and mini gift idea.
This card measures 5" square and has the little pocket for a little gift. The gift being a magnet for your fridge or maybe file cabinet at work.
For the holidays I decide on the cute little skater from Winter Frolic. I cut her at 4" then added the magnet on the back.
I just had to add stickles to her little hat, gloves and skates. How about that face, makes ya just giggle with her.. The face is from PKS Happy Lashes, one of my favorite stamp sets ever. I am going to link this up to their blog for the PKS designers choice challenge this week. The sentiment is from Pink by Design.
Also going to link up to Our Creative Corner challenge.
Next up is this jolly snow family card. I picked this new stamp up at the local craft store using a 40% off coupon. Still working on my coloring skills, but had fun anyway.
