A few more cards...

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and Santa brought you everything you asked for. :)

I had a nice Christmas and am looking forward to enjoying the rest of the season through New Year's! I always grew up with our Christmas tree up until New Year's and sometimes a day or two after that. That's how hubby and I do it in our house too. It seems to make the season last longer that way. ;) While driving home on Christmas night, after being with my in-laws, I saw that someone had already stripped their tree and threw it out on the boulevard, lol! I was like...aww, that poor tree! LOL! But, we all do things differently than the other and that's what makes the world go 'round, right? ;) It's all good.

Thought I'd share the cards I made for hubby's tellers this year. I made a little pocket on the inside of the card to hold a gift card. I used my Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder on the green paper and used up a package of Making Memories rubs. Yay for getting in the stash! I also found the wiggly eyes that are girlie - with eyelashes, lol! I had to use those! I kept the envies simple with a stamped tree and the girl's name.

And I've got to give credit to Lisa @ Hero Arts for the owl/scarf idea. It was too cute not to try myself. I ended up liking these cards so much that it might be choice for my general Christmas cards next year. We'll see if I still love owls like I do now...and if I feel like doing 120 of them. ;)








So, what do you think of my white background now? I've always had black but it seems like when I go to other blogs, the black background/white text is harder to read. I don't know. It it just me? I think I'll try it out and see how I like it. Change is always good. Also need to get those darn photos in my banner updated! I've been saying that forever it seems. I'm ready for some freshness.

I'll leave you with the reminder that my friend Maryfrances' "store closing sale" is still going on. The entire store is 50% off and there's still plenty of great funsies left to be bought! Check it out! Happy shopping!

Until the next time...

I love, love, love those owls! So cute. Our Christmas was fine...my tree is down already. *smiles* Guess I'm one of those that can't wait to put it up and can't wait to get it down. LOL

Love the owls...and the white background. I hate trying to read white text on black.

I am in love with those cards Nicole, they're wonderful!!!! We don't take our tree down until after the new year too or even much longer not because of tradition but for a different reason. :)
Love the new look of your blog!!
