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 year....lol....now what to do with the half ream of lime green cardstock that's left over ????
