It's beginning to look alot like Christmas!

And feel like it too! BRR! It's cold here! And I love it! Can't wait for snow! Last night I made a few more Christmas cards in between my break from making 15 Christmas Wish boxes that someone ordered! You think during my break, I would get something to eat or drink! No not me! I made cards!! LOL

This first one, is a tree that I hand drew and cut out 2 of them. I then attached them at the top with a piece of floss hidden behind the glittered Chipboard star. I ran the tree through my Cuttlebug using the Swiss Dots Embossing folder. That folder is my favorite! The cute CS Ornament and candies are by K&Co. I added some ribbon, pom-pom trim, a button and some hemp cord. (click on photos for closeups!)

This next one I made using some PP by Stemma. The "Do Not Open" stamp is from the Michaels $1 bin! The tree and present are stickers but not sure who makes them. I had them in my stash for awhile. To finish it off, I added some crocheted ribbon and DCWV scalloped CS. I rounded the bottom edges with my corner punch and inked the edges with brown ink.

And finally this last one, is so much prettier in person. I couldn't get a good photograph. The tree gets lost in the PP in the photo, but not in real life! DARN! Oh well. I used some MME papers, a Maya Road chipboard tree which I drenched in Silver EP and then adhered part of a holiday pick to the front of it. I also used some felt snowflakes, buttons, Pom-Pom trim, red crystals, floss and some lace ribbon. The words were printed out of MS Word and then I used a glue pen to write over them and then added red EP.



And last but not least, I have a blog candy alert! Come help Lara celebrate her Birthday on her blog! She is giving away 2 stamp sets! She is very sweet! So go here and say Happy Birthday Lara!!

Have a wonderful day and thanks for stopping by!

Hugs, Melissa

The tree card is the one I saw on ACOT which brought me here. You know I have some of those pom-pom trims. Have I ever made anything this creative? no! *sigh*
