Merry Christmas!


Hi there!

I'm just popping in quick to show you a quick card that I made.  Yes, I'm still making some Christmas cards!  Why oh why don't I think ahead and make them in July?  Hmmm...'cause I'm not in the mood or inspired at that time?  Well, I'm thinking I need to change that next year!:-)  Anyways, about my card...

I used Paper Sweeties darling little gingerbread people.  I've used this Ho Ho Ho stamp set several times now.  It's just too adorable not to!  And, the Ho Ho Ho Sweet Cuts dies makes it so convenient rather than fussy cutting.  I colored the buttons and bows with copics and added gems.  For the final easy touch I added washi tape.  How convenient to already have the sentiment on the tape!  I'm loving washi tape more and more these days.  Well, I may be back soon to show you another Christmas card.  In the meantime, I need to do some house cleaning...grrr.  I'd rather be crafting, right? 

Thanks so much for dropping by!  Have a wonderful weekend, hugs!

  18. Cute! Love the mix of Washi tape! I really like using Washi tape, too, but never even think about it until after I've finished my card. I've resolved to get my craft room cleaned up in the next two weeks. Maybe I can find a way to make them more handy. :)
