The Herd Wishing a Merry Christmas

Everytime I see "the herd" it makes me feel good so I try to incorporate them into a card for every season. The SU Wondrous Wreath stamp set and the matching framelits make incorporating them really fun. My mother enjoyed the card so much she made me one for Christmas. Now I can enjoy the card. I hope you enjoy the card and find fun ways to incorporate the herd too.

Dove of Peace

My friend surprised me with a Christmas gift of the SU Dove of Peace stamp. Luckily I had not finished all my cards and I was able to make a few cards with this stamp. Adding to the beauty of the card are two other items from the SU Holiday and regular catalog ... the Iced Rhinestone embellishments and the 1/8" silver ribbon. This stamp has great versatility for weddings, baptisms, and sympathy cards. Thank you Marlene for this great stamp!

Fun and fast tree card

Keeping with the theme of fast and fun, I made another card with the SU tree punch. The paper is from last year's SU DSP. I love the small prints for the trees. The softly falling textured impressions folder adds a nice background texture. SU Cording trim and the "home for Christmas" enamel dots add the right amount of bling.



Christmas tree and holiday blessings

I was late getting my Christmas cards out and even later getting anything posted. I love the Christmas season.... Wrapping presents, making tags and cards, really enjoyable. The insane pace of parties and traveling... Not so much. This card using the SU tree punch and saying from the "six sayings" hostess set is easy and fast. It also enabled me to use the enamel dots. I love them and while I want to horde them, I keep reminding myself that they are to use not to save.
