It's a White Christmas

I can't believe that Christmas has come and gone. The day couldn't have been any better. It ended with snow falling to complete a "White Christmas" Here in Virginia Beach it only happens in a blue moon. So even though everything, and I mean everthing is shut down it's still a wonderful blessing. Now I just wish I could find some tubes or sleds to go play in the snow.

Framed verse

This gift took me no time at all. This was a Christmas gift to a special friend. I thought the bible verse was perfect for our friendship, "A friend loves at all times.." The paper I used is Elegant soiree from Stampin up. I used the cricut to cut the crumbcake and baja breeze cardstock that framed the verse.

Polka Dot Journal

This journal was made for my teenage sister. I think it suits her, so she better love it. haha. I used my cricut machine to cut out the letters and the dream in the cloud. Everything is perfect except that I applied everything upside down. lol. That's okay. It's a unique gift and I'm sure it will bring a smile to her face everytime she opens it.

Picture wreath

We had a Christmas party with all my Glitterchick fellow demos and this is the gift I made to exchange. I bought a wreath from AC Moore for like 2 bucks. I used an extra large scallop circle punch to make the frames. Added some ribbon with an antique brad and that completed my gift. Very simple, but yet elegant.

2010 Christmas Cards

These are our 2010 Christmas cards that I made and just sent out. Hopefully they'll get to their destinations on time. Whoops, procrastinated just a bit. It was a lot of work but well worth it. I love this color combo (crumbcake, cherry cobbler, and early expresso) so much. I decided to go with the vintage look again this year. I can't get enough.
