Christmas cards


Yeah!! Halloween is over and that means Christmas music on the radio!! I LOVE the Christmas season. This is the best time of the year. I bought this basic grey pack called Figgy Pudding at Hobby Lobby for 50% OFF. I love it. I used it to make the Bella card. The snowman card was made with basic Grey also, but the paper is from the Fruitcake collection. This is quickly becoming my favorite paper company!!

So I received some money for my birthday. I am debating on what to get. I would like to get some of the nestabilities. I also would like some more shelves in my scrap room, or possibly some more copics. I am the most undecided person ever. i know that my mom or Amy will chime in on that statement. Dave bought me an alarm clock, that is also an ipod dock. Well I actually took it back because it was sooo bright that I could not sleep. The next one was too bright also, then the next one had a teeny tiny display that I could not see too well with out my glasses. So the fourth and final one is perfect. i do this all the time. My camera, my ipod,(I actually have had 6 diff ones before I decided on the one I kept).
I went off track a little there, the point is I can't decide what to get. What would you get with $300.00!!!???

Great cards! Love the paper! I get a couple of sets of nesties and hen some copics. I ordered some Ciao's from http://www.merriartist.com for $2.96 and Hanna stamps carries some for $3.33. Great prices! There's always Christmas for shelves! Enjoy and can't wait to hear what you end up getting.

Love the cards, especially the snowman one! Is the snowman a stamp or from paper? If it is a stamp, which company? Thanks.

Adorable cards! I love the BG paper. I really like how you incorporated stripes & dots on your snowman so it pulls in from both prints.

Hi Carri,
Love th cards, and what a find to get BG Figgy Pudding at 1/2 price! I say spend your money on some nestabilities. I just got my second set from cutathome.com (they give you a 40% off coupon every month for signing up for their emails. I am also loving my copics so building your collection there would be good too.
