Merry Christmas to you!

I am including in today's post a Christmas card for you. This is one I have sent out as our family's card with the traditional letter updating all on the happenings with our family. My husband likes to tease me that he's sure they are never read. Personally, I enjoy reading the ones that we receive each year from family and friends.


Project Supplies:
Stamps: D1480 Snowflakes
Paper: X7146B Wonderland Level 2 Paper Packet
Cardstock: Chocolate, Lilac Mist, Spring Iris, and White Daisy
Inks: Chocolate, Grey Flannel, Lilac Mist, and Spring Iris
Embellishments: Z1104 Clear Sparkles
Tools: "Wishes" how-to book, Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge (exclusively from Close to My Heart), Micro-Tip Scissors, Sponge Dauber, Paper Piercing Tool, and 3-D foam squares

I must share that I was inspired by Allisa's card she posted on her blog.  I love her great work!  Thanks, Allisa!  Also, the card layout came from Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge.

The Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge was such a wonderful timesaver for me in creating close to 100 cards.  I was so thankful to be able to make a card with so many layers and shapes with the help of my Cricut and this terrific cartridge.  You can get your own by heading over to my site if you would like to enjoy this cartridge for yourself.

Right now I am settling in at home to enjoy the arrival of all of our children to celebrate Christmas.  I hope you are also excitedly anticipating your own beautiful Christmas!

Time to Let It Snow!

So, I will be the first to admit that I have been enjoying the milder weather.  However, we are getting awfully close to Christmas with no snow here.  I'd say it must be time for the snow to begin in earnest.  In keeping with that thought, here is another of my cards I created for my Christmas card workshop:

Project Supplies:
Stamps: C1468 Winter Joy
Paper: X7146B Wonderland Level 2 Paper Packet
Cardstock: Chocolate, Crystal Blue, and White Daisy
Inks: Chocolate and Twilight
Embellishments: Z1220 Twinkle Brads
Tools: "Wishes" how-to book, Micro-Tip Scissors, Sponge Dauber, Paper Piercing Tool, and 3-D foam squares

I've been counting down the days until the big changes take effect in my little corner of the world.  Friday is my last day in my current position at work. Then I have two weeks off before I begin my Master's degree program.  During that time I get to enjoy time with the kids all home for a visit.  Wonderful times are coming up soon!

In case you haven't already heard, I am thrilled to share some joyful news for this month:  I received the news that I have been accepted into a Master's degree program.  How exciting is that?!?  Thanks to my friends who supported me and prayed with me during this time of making a big decision to go for it.  I am grateful for your support.

Wishing you your own joyful December.
