Christmas Makes 2014

I’ve been gone so long I’m not even sure you’re still with me but I thought I’d take a minute to pop in and share my Christmas cards with you this year so here’s hoping you’re still around to see them.  I am so thankful for my daughter’s help this year.  I pre-cut and colored all the pieces for each of my cards and she helped to assemble them all.  It made the process go so much faster.  The first cards I’m going to share are actually from a Close To My Heart card kit.

The kit made 5 each of 3 different styles of cards for a total of 15 cards altogether.  I’ve never purchased a CTMH kit before, but I must say, the stamps that came with the kit are incredible!  I’ve never used such wonderfully crisp clear stamps in all my life.

And these are the cards that I pre-cut and assembled with my daughter. I made 5 cards each of the 5 different styles for a total of 25 cards.  The embellishments and images were all stamped, colored (if needed), and then cut with my Cameo Silhouette.

I wish you all a very Merry Christmas and hope you enjoy the holidays with your loved ones.  May 2015 be a year filled with many great things and lots of laughter for all of you!

So this is a two-fold process. First and foremost, I want to thank you lovely ladies for sticking around. I truly appreciate it.

Secondly, I'm testing this new captcha thingy to see if I can bypass it without having to type anything in the box.

RESULTS OF ABOVE TEST: Yes, as long as you are using an Open ID or Google account you can just overlook the Robot Prompt and scroll down to publish your comment.
