Double shot of my blah blah tonight . . .

Wow, hope you can handle a double shot . . . of me and my blah, blah tonight. I actually was inspired by Kristine (fellow SBS4 member) when I saw her card from the featured stamper challenge, and although I should be addressing envelopes for morning (swap cards on their way out the door to my girlfriends--*wink* You know who you are), I actually played in the featured stamper challenge instead. This card was inspired by Danielle's card here, but much more simplified. I like hers better, but I cut back a bit (ya know . . . less is less). See below--postage gripe.
I FINALLY used my Sandy Claws stamp set that I JUST HAD TO HAVE before Christmas this year from Gina K Designs (link to the right), and stamped off a couple of the cute little guy in the sleigh. I used puffy paint, stickles and some pretty gold wrapping paper that has snowflakes on it (which you really can't see in the pic) to dress this up a bit, but I am really keeping most my cards light and less bumpy this year for my mailed Christmas cards. I put an extra 17 cent stamp on about 40 cards this year. . . ugh! See it's expensive to keep things "pretty." Crazy, huh?!


Anyway, here are a couple of cards I made for the stampers challenge and getting a jump start on Christmas Card Challenge 2008. Hope you aren't too sick of Christmas cards to take a look below. :) Thanks for dropping by! Kelly
