Countdown to Christmas :)

This year, in my continuing effort to 'use stuff up' I have lots of different designs for our family Christmas cards. This one, that I'm the most happy with, unfortunatley is the worst picture. I need a new camera or better skills. The background paper is actually a piece of a worship folder from our church last January- I knew as soon as I saw it that it would be part of my Christmas cards. My awesome friend/church secretary gave me a whole bunch of them- I kept them out of the recycle bin :) I Cuttlebugged the strip of green paper ( left over from a huge card project I did for a logging company) and made the three dimensional flower by stamping with white staz-on on scraps of vellum. I attached it all with a gold brad. The flower stamps are from Smartworks & the 'Merry Christmas' is a Heart & Soul stamp. I'll be back tomorrow with another one :) <><


  1. Lovely card!!! My mom's church secretary saves the extra bulletins for her every week in case she wants them to use for cards. She makes some really pretty cards with them.

  2. Looks like the star flower set from smARTworks...! sorry, I'm sooo far behind on blog reading...like 2000+ posts behind! Hope you're doing well. We are holding back a bit from all the Christmas hoopla here, but encouraged. CSSC hugs!


thanks for leaving some joy :)
