First one Down...

Only 50 more to go... Christmas cards that is. It snowed a little last night, and it's really cold out, Brrr! I finally took all my stamp stuff out yesterday and stamped by the kitchen table, it was so nice to do again. My 7 year old daughter must have felt the same way because she made 3 cards while I made one, she'll be passing me soon with her creativity!

I bought this stamp set from Just Rite Stampers a while ago with the coordinating dies, love this set! Plus I finally go to use this designer paper from My Mind's Eye. I enjoy bright fun colours for Christmas but my eye is always drawn to colours that bring out the warmth and glow of Christmas so I almost squealed when I saw the warm colours in the DSP.

I saw this card layout on SCS a few days ago but know who it was made by, this is a case off of that card. The cardstock is all from Stampin' Up! and designer paper is MME. I stamped the ornaments in Cherry Cobbler and softened them with Soft Suede and a sponge. Before I adhered them to the card I sprayed them with some champagne shimmer mist (the best stuff ever created!). The sentiment isn't very visible but I hope it'll be ok.

Thanks for stopping by, hope you're having a great start to your weekend!
