Almost Done...

I have been feverishly trying to get all my cards done and I am nearing the end. I've made almost sixty and I still have about six left to go. This year I didn't use much black at all and that's my favorite color! I barely used any buttons either. It cost me a fortune last year for stamps, so I thought I'd save button usage for cards made during the rest of the year.

On Monday I found this great paper that I've used on the cards below. When I came home with it and told the hubby, he was surprised that I needed to buy more paper. He asked if I really needed it. What a ridiculous question that is! It's impossible to explain to men that you really need it when you have a room full of paper. Or that when you see something you have to get it at that moment because you may use it at some point or that it will be gone the next time you want to buy it.

The patterned paper is from Creative Imaginations called Holiday Season by Christine Adolph. It was exactly what I needed to make some quick cards. I made multiples of each.


All I did to the stocking was add gemstones.


To the presents I just used my quickie glue pen on the ribbon and added glitter.


I didn't add anything but ribbon to the deer.

Tree with Flower Soft 2

This tree is probably my favorite. I added flower soft to imitate snow. Below is a side view so you can hopefully see it better.

This wasn't a stamp! This was patterned paper from Creative Imaginations called Holiday Season by Christine Adolph. I'm sure the paper is still available, I've seen it in stores. The paper is just beautiful!
