It's The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year!


Hi, Everyone!!!I hope you had a Wonderful Thanksgiving! Mine was, for sure!I made dinner, which was quite a job, but I loved every minute of it! What a great way to show your family how much you love them, and so nice to put every thing else aside for a few days and just enjoy each other and being together!Now, I am in the Christmas spirit, and excited about all of the fun times and activities that this month will bring! (Photo ops galore! Kids, watch out-papparazzi mom is on the loose!)
Today, Lindsay gave us a mission: Keep it Quick and Easy Cards. I kind of struggled with this mission, because, if I am hand making a card for someone, I want it to be special. So, I decided simple but elegant was key . Lindsay's Homemade Holidays Printable Paper Pack was perfect for this! I took a couple of Lindsay's Stamp Stuff Vintage Christmas Label digistamps into Photoshop, played with the hue and saturation sliders under , until I got a red label that I was happy with (I loved it so much, actually, that I printed out an extra one to use in scrapbooking later-I LOVE that you can print digistamps out to make decorations in the size you need). I printed the Homemade Holidays paper and the digistamp out on cream cardstock, embossed a scrap of cream cardstock with the Houndstooth Cuttlebug folder, and glued/pop dotted it all together, with a sheer red ribbon. 'Cause I just can't seem to make a card with out ribbon.
Thanks for dropping by today-head over to Lindsay's blog and grab today's freebie, then on to the other designers' blogs for lots more inspiration! Be sure to drop by often, and I will try to share some of the Christmas projects I make as I make them!
