Ready for Christmas yet?

. . . me neither. But I have purchased a few items that I know my family members have been looking for or would like. :) Really, my thoughts have been more about finishing up some more Christmas cards before the mad rush starts to get everything done.

These first two cards were created with the Lovely as a Tree set from Stampin Up. The first one was partially CASEd from someone on SCS, and I just commented on her card a couple of nights ago. I am having difficulty finding it again to give her credit. Sorry, but if it was you, please let me know.

The blue one was started in a workshop last weekend at my neighbor's home, but finished up here with some stickles. The bg of the image is brayered with different shades of blue on glossy white, then cut apart to look like a window, placed carefully, sentiment added, then stickles last to let it sit and dry. Uggh, don't mind the slight smudge of blue ink at the top -- that stressed me out for a while, but then I created a couple more, so . . . I let it go. . . I think. *wink*

These little heart cuties are from the I love my . . . set at JessicaLynnOriginal, and they all three come in the set with different sentiments of things you may love. They are also on sale right now at 15% off. Who doesn't LOVE a deal?! I created them with the BG figgy pudding Toyland paper and black and real red cs from Stampin Up. The snowflake panel was created with glossy photo paper ran through the snowflake cuttlebug folder then sponged with red ink.


I am heading up to the farm for the weekend, so . . . Happy Stamping everyone! I think I will take a few items to color in the evening if I am not too exhausted. DS and DM are participating in the alpaca show in Syracuse, New York (think happy thoughts and prayers for a safe return).

Happy Stampin N Scrappin!
First signature idea

Beautiful tree cards, Kelly, and what fun J-LO cards, too. I really like how you used a reverse sponging technique on the first tree card -- I need to CASE that!
