Christmas cards... and a little birthday thank you..

Thank you all who have posted the birthday wishes yesterday and today. I had a fun birthday dinner with my husband and kids as well as my aunt and my parents. After eating so much yummy food from Olive Garden I was so ready for a day at the gym again. Those bread sticks at OG are to die for. ... I have almost enough cards made now to send them out on Friday... I may even mail a few on Thursday on my way to my mom's surgery. I am not sure if I will have a post on Thursday due to her surgery and my husband's boat Christmas party that night. But I will try and post a few cards tomorrow...

Now on to today's Christmas cards...



These cards I started working on Monday but just could not get the right main image to work with what I had planned. I knew I wanted to use the snowman dp from my figgy pudding pad by basic grey. I added little rhinestones to each snowflake on the paper. I loved the look after that and wanted to find a great image but it seems I still am not happy with my main image but it has to make due...

I wanted to use a snowman like the one in SU retiring set Frosty but not in my collection yet( but it will be). Instead I grabbed my snowman from the SU set called Jolliest Time of the Year. He is ok but I still wish I had frosty here. I used my prismapencils and gamsol on the image to color it to match the paper. After making this card I realized I need to order more of PaperTrey Inc stampers select white cardstock. I like to make my white card bases from it and I'm running a little low. It is a little thicker than whisper white and is a great cardbase.

Well I'm off to go play with my new cuttlebug for a little while ... Oh my husband let me have it as my birthday present and he said he is going shopping without me sometime here soon.... wonder what he may get me... have a great night.
