Christmas Greetings

Hey, guess what?  39 days until Christmas!  Yep, only 6 more shopping Sundays!  That also means lots of shopping and who doesn't like a great sale, right?  I know I do!

I'm eagerly waiting for Stampin' Up! to announce, on November 19th, what items will be on sale, beginning November 20th.  The sale will last until December 2nd. That's all we know for now but I'm CERTAIN it's gonna be BIG - after all, this Stampin' Up!'s 25th Anniversary year and they've been giving lots us lots to celebrate!

Be sure to mark your calendar for November 19th to come back and see what the hoopla is all about!

Today's card was inspired to something I saw on Pinterest.  (Yep, I have lots of Pinterest boards; cards, 3D projects, scrapbooking and great recipes!)  The Designer Frames come in a set of two. I used the oval for this project which highlights the reindeer perfectly.  The texture works wonderfully with the designer paper.  I used the Square Collection of framelits for the glittery corners.  Die cut a 1 3/8" square, cut on the diagonal and separate the corners to mount behind the deer.  A few rhinestones and some Dazzling Diamonds glitter bring the shine all together!

  1. Wow, that's a very beautiful card! I always want to make my greetings personalized and handmade, but sometimes, I just can't find time to start working on them so I really feel glad everytime I see these beautiful handcraft.

    The only thing I can do for now is to share some inspiration on what to write in a christmas card to help others in writing card verses.

    Anyway, wishing you all the best this christmas and I'm looking forward for your new designs as well.
