Christmas Cards

I think it should be a rule that no one is required to blog in December!!

Here is a shot of what my Christmas cards look like. Finally finished and they are in today's mail. The card is a total case of one Nicole Heady made back in September. Blue is my favorite color, so I fell in love with it right away!

I used my labels one nestability cut in half for the front sentiment, and a paper crimper to make the textured strip along the bottom. I have the ribbon, but decided not to put it on my cards (and it made it a touch faster to complete them!). Cute little crystals are in the center of the snowflakes.

As I was working on putting these together today, I was totally having fun singing along with my new "Glee" CD! Good thing no one could see...or hear me!

In case I'm not back before...Have a Merry Christmas!!

Mojo #115

Hi there! Hopefully I'm back in action with the crafting. I've been sick (and tired) the last few weeks, and also lost my voice. I then noticed how much I talk out loud to myself while doing things around the house!

I used the Mojo Monday sketch for my card. A nice one to get things going again. I used Papertrey cardstock, and Basic Grey Lime Rickey for the design paper. My image is Ruby from Jessica Lynn Original. I colored her with copic markers, and cut her out with my Creative Memories circle cutter. The matting was cut with a circle scallop nestabilities and some silver stickles were added for some sparkle. Sentiment is stamped on a ribbon tag nestability.

My November guest spot for i {heart} papers is officially over, but since I was out sick and did not make as many things as planned, I'm going to be like the guest that hangs around a bit longer! There are still a couple of items that I haven't used in a post and I want to be sure to highlight those products also!

Happy crafting!
