Christmas Cards

Sneaking in one more post before we head off to the airport. I managed to get these babies finished yesterday amongst all the fuss. This is July's Christmas challenge from Tracy's blog

This was a tough one for me this time. Again with the 5 cards all with the same image but this time there was no layers. Boy I have been running all sorts of ideas through my head. I finally settled on this one.

I used a cuttlebug folder called bow frame that my lovely friend Lucy gave me for my birthday. coupled with SU shimmer cardstock and SU flower for all season stamp set. The sentiment is from creative cafe and gold heat embossed. I really like how they turned out hope you do too.

I have a couple of things I have been holding on to and not posted yet that will keep things going a little while I am away but I will post pics of home for you all too. Right off to finish packing.

Thanks for dropping by

GREAT cards!!!! I'm glad to know I wasn't the only one having trouble with this one... LOVE the pointsettia idea with the embossing.

I lived in TX for 18 years, and am dying to go back... we are currently in OK.

Glad you're enjoying being back "home" in TX!!!
