It's beginning to look a bit like.......

Christmas!

I made a list of things to do over the summer, and I have completed almost every task I set out.  One of the things I didn't get to was to start my Christmas cards.  So this morning I got up and had an idea of what I wanted to do.  Here are a few that I came up with.



I think I like the hot chocolate one the best with the snowman a close second.

The hot chocolate takes a bit of time as I have to use markers, then stamp 3 times and cut out the cup and heart from patterned paper. The stamp is Hot Chocolate from Imaginisce Snag 'em Stamps.

The snowman is all cut out by my Cricut machine using the Winter Woodlands cartridge, but again the time in setting up the paper, and gluing it altogether, not to mention the 2 embossing plates, D'vine swirl and Swiss dots from Cuttlebug.

The snowflake one was to try to come up with nontraditional  colours for winter/Christmas.  It is okay, but not a card that I will repeat. The snowflake is also from the Winter Woodland Cricut cartridge.

I used the same sentiment in all three, from a stamp set I won early this year from Debbie at Country Heart and Home.  I added Stickles to all the cards too, just to bling them up a bit.

They are all really cute, but I must admit I am partial to snowmen. They are my favorite holiday decoration. Fantastic job on these cards!
