thinking outside my color box......

So this year I decided to step out of my purple comfort zone and make some really different Christmas cards....lime green! I have a lifetime supply of background papers, so each one looks a little different...part of my 'goal' for 2008 was to use up some of the things I've been 'saving' ( for WHAT? )

The other fun thing I do every year is create some kind of matching 'faux postage' and print it on sticker paper- then I use the Fiskars scissors that look like stamp edging and cut around them. One year I incorporated a great picture of my two kids..(they were less than thrilled, I might add :) and yes, I do have too much free time on my hands ;) kinda hard to see in the picture, but the triangle one says "Christmas in the Northwest" . Most of the stamps are Heart & Soul, the big snowflake is one I received from one of my 'trading buddies' and I have no idea what company it's from.

So the bottom line is that I think I'll be going back to purple next what to do with the half ream of lime green cardstock that's left over ????


  1. I'm liking your results here a lot, Sue. I wish I could say I was innocent of saving tuff...Like you said, what am I saving it for? It will probably outlive me! LOL! Thanks for sharing!

  2. I love the cards, Sue. I don't know what you can do with the rest of the lime green cs, but as soon as you get rid of it you will need it. lol Happens to me all the time.


thanks for leaving some joy :)
