Christmas Cards

Yesterday was the 13th day that we (in Alabama) have had where the temperature is 30 degrees or below. This is a BIG deal here! Our previous record is 7 days. Of course, there hasn't been any snow where we live, which is the only benefit of COLD weather! In the past we have had Christmases that were 70 degrees or higher! Our weather is very unpredictable in the winter. 70 degrees for 3 days then 40 degrees for 3 days. I tell you all this because it has been too cold to do anything (we are just not used to this sort of weather).

The past 4 days have been a bit warmer, so I have been able to do some organizing in the craft room. I am filling my white storage boxes, and I hope to have them finished and put away by next week! I am so excited! You can see the boxes in the packages here.

So today I am showing you several different cards I have made for Christmas. They each use a stamp set that is in the current Idea Book and Catty, so you can still order these stamps for next year's Christmas cards. My absolutely favorite card is the reindeer card at the top of the post. For some reason, it really suits me. Of course, Soft Suede is one of my favorite colors! The reindeer silhouette stamp is less than $10!

The first picture below shows a card that my 9 year old daughter, Sydney Grace, made. The second and third photos are of the inside and back. She is so creative; I especially like the way she did the stamp on the back. I have this stamp and it has my name in the center, she just didn't color it with the marker and wrote in her own name! She's a smart cookie! She has that 9 year old color scheme, but it works!
The final photo is of a card with a pointsettia on it. It is made from the Small and Large Tag Punches! I am working on learning how to make a demonstration video (with my new camera), so hopefully very soon I can show you how!!

Thanks for stopping by today.


  1. Nice cards! I LOVE the reindeer stamp - it was my favorite of the season!


  2. Thanks for every other informative website. Where else could I am getting that type of information written in such an ideal method? I have a undertaking that I’m simply now running on, and I have been on the look out for such information.
