Vintage Leaves Birthday

This stunning swap card created by fellow demonstrator Toni Tessler is really a bad influence. The suggestion to buy is strong with this one. Just saying.

You see, when this stamp set came out as a bundle with the framelits, I was in the middle of trying to sell a house knowing that I would be moving here. It was hard to do classes with most of my things packed up and not knowing from one day to the next if the house would be sold, etc. So, as much as I loved it, I did not purchase it. I did not buy a lot that year, at all.

However, I love this card so much that I am starting to be swayed even though the risk is high that since it has been out for awhile, it could be retired soon. On the plus side, I have everything needed to make this card except for the Vintage Leaves stamps and Leaflets framelits. Does anyone want to place a big order so I can feel better about buying them? Ha ha!

Follow the Star

This swap card created by fellow demonstrator, Angie Brailsford really speaks to me. It has a simple message. In today’s world when we have so many voices clamoring for our attention it can be difficult to stick to our purpose.

The simple message to Follow the Star brings us back to our purpose of finding Christ and following after Him. That really is what Christmas is all about. I know that sometimes I get caught up in decorating, baking, gift buying and making, jolly fat elves, Christmas trees, and the what not; sometimes to the point of being overwhelmed!

Being overwhelmed is not His purpose for our lives. For that, I am thankful. Today, this swap card was a God sent message to slow down a bit, tune out all those other voices, look up to the heavens and seek Him. To bring Christmas into my everyday. I hope you enjoy the card, and the message.

Rudolph is Ready with Santa’s Sleigh

Rudolph is ready with Santa’s sleigh! He is prancing around and ready to go! I, on the other, am still dragging my feet on this whole Christmas thing. I am trying to self-motivate. Really, I am. So far, it’s not working.

This fun card was created by fellow demonstrator, Micki Antinone. I am under the impression (since the sleigh is empty) that Santa isn’t quite ready yet, either. He must be checking his list again…

I wonder if Santa has technical problems now, too. I spent all morning trying to resolve missing previews of all my thumbnails. Blog posts would be so much easier if my technology would cooperate. Thankfully, google had some suggestions for me. What would I do without google as my help desk?

A Very Merry Christmas From the Cookie Cutter Christmas Reindeer

Look at this cute little reindeer bleating out a very merry Christmas!  He was created by fellow demonstrator, Maria Grumaraes. (I hope I got that right!) I just love how she gave him legs and a bow tie. Stinkin’ cute!

Warm Wishes and Eskimo Kisses

Okay, you got me! This swap card by fellow demonstrator, Helen Kennard says absolutely nothing about Eskimo Kisses. However, that is what popped into my head and stuck there: so what’s a girl to do? Besides, why can’t mistletoe kisses be Eskimo kisses?

Since I can not list the markers used separately, I have indicated the colors used with ink pads.

It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year

Christmas is the most wonderful time of year; even with the cold and snow! Wonderful smells, goodies, gift giving, family, and most importantly, the celebration of the birth of our Savior.

I adore this swap card created by fellow demonstrator, Jill Arenovski. I fell in love the stamp set Wonderful Year as soon as I saw it and put it on my list immediately. The little gingerbread man with the Candy Cane Lane designer series paper and color combo just really make this an eye-catching card. Fabulous card, Jill!

Gingerbread Wishes With Cookie Cutter Christmas

Yummy…wouldn’t it be nice to be smelling gingerbread cookies right now? Looking at Cookie Cutter Christmas gingerbread men for a few hours has been getting to me – ha ha!

This yummy card was created by fellow demonstrator, Kay Capps. I love how she used the Best Badge punch to get the scallops along the bottom of her card. Brilliant!
