happy thanksgiving everyone!! I've been getting into the spirit of the holidays today by making Christmas cards! I hit Michaels annual thanksgiving sale for cartridges. I wanted Nifty Fifties and Birthday Bash. Michaels only had Birthday Bash so that's what I picked up. On to the cards: the first is with Doodlecharms. This cute little guy is cut at 3 3/4. I used the Hero Arts Cling Magical Background for the embossing. The silver paper is from Michaels and the stamp is from Hero Arts Holiday Cheer set. I used Archival Ink on the shimmery paper and it stamped beautifully! I outlined frosty with stardust stickles.

This is the second card is made from scraps. I cut the mittens from the Cricut Seasonal Cartridge Gingerbread. I think they are cut at 2 3/4. The stamp is from Hero Arts Holiday Cheer and embossed with white embossing powder. I'm off to play with my new cartridge!! Happy Thanksgiving!

52 Days Until Christmas!

Its true! There are only 52 days until Christmas! Where did 2010 go? I feel like the Christmas Eve blizzard just left! 2010 has been a super busy year and I was blessed beyond belief and I got to do things that I never even dreamed of doing.
I was inspired by my cousin Arielle who makes gorgeous lingerie to " go big" and I saw her efforts pay off last night when one of her amazing designs made it into the opening scene of Gossip Girl. I could not be more proud. Her website is go and shop its amazing! I ordered buisness cards this mornng and will be taking custom orders for cards, mini albums, and scrapbooks for the Christmas season. I'm very excited. I will be posting pictures of a few albums that I have made recently. Love that I can blog from my iphone! So if any of you know someone that needs scrapbooking done or cards made please give them my email address: Thank you guys so much!
