SNOW SWIRLED - YEP, MORE CHRISTMAS!

Hi all!!! I have some more Christmas cards to share today - no, I am not trying to rush the holidays, but since I taught a Christmas class, I have lots of holiday stuff to share, lol! I realized after looking at my cards that I did not share the other two that belonged with the first one I posted of the cards we made so I thought I would share those today. If you recall, in this post I shared the first card of this set and I used the Top Note die. Well, here I used the frame that was left from the die cut to decorate my second card - and I really like the effect! I love the way it frames my tree, which is from the Snow Swirled set, currently on special for 15% off (if you NEED this, email me, I can help ya *wink*) and I just love it. The snowflakes are from the same set as is the sentiment. The second card uses all the same
stamps and paper, but the sentiment is actually from the set Heard from the Heart which has four absolutely gorgeous sentiments, one of which you see here! I am loving all the new holiday sets we have available right now - this one here will be available for order on October 1st in the holiday mini along with the papers I have been showing as well. So, off the stamp room to continue working on my projects for the craft fair on Saturday - never done one so it should be interesting. I mean, I did one with wood crafts but never paper crafts so I have no real idea what to expect. But hey, I am game to try anything - LOL! So, I will leave you with the recipe as I need to get my booty in gear or it will be just me sitting in my booth surrounded by....nothing,heehee! Toodles

Paper -Always Artichoke, Chocolate Chip, Bashful Blue, Naturals Ivory card stock, Frosty Day Designer Series Paper

Hi Alex: I love your cards. The Christmas ones are adorable. So cheery. I have to comment on the banner..love it....what a beautiful scenery. Do those trees grow fruit?

Your gifts from God are adorable. I also read your profile. It is amazing that you served your country. I admire that. My brother lives in the US and I for one love the States. (I am in Ontario Canada). I even follow US politics, so does my oldest son. He has a fave for the election me too...

Thanks for coming by my blog...I feel like we are blogging friends already.
Stamping hugs back to you...

Oh my! When I see your cards, I realize that I haven't looked deep enough into my Fall/Winter Catalog from SU. I am seeing such neat cards and ideas from your site. Often, I'm not creative enough to buy a set until I see something made from it.

Thanks for sharing all of these wonderful cards and ideas.
