Christmas 2008

Christmas 2008 ....It came and went so fast, I only made a few cards, just enough to get by this year. I had a few late orders to fill so they took priority over my goodies. I must start and do some every month in 2009 so I build up my supplies. I was so far behind, I spent a few hours on Christmas Eve finishing of some gifts I needed for Christmas day, just as well I had wrapped our presents and made some salads for Lunch. So this was the main card we sent out this year.

City of David
Always Artichoke, Vanilla, Cranberry Crisp, Holiday Thyme DP
Ink: Black Stazon, Always Artichoke, Creamy Caramel, Basic Grey, Cranberry Crisp, Blush Blossom Markers & Stamp Pads Accessories: Square Scallop Punch, Gold Brads, Oval Nestabilities, Cuttlebug, Dimensionals, Aqua Painter, Kindy Glitz, 1/8" Punch

This is the inside.

I made these Christmas Tree Box Decorations to give to the Ladies and filled them with chocolates. They were very easy to make and I cased them from Brenda Quintana who had prepared a tutorial and template that could be printed onto your card to cut them out, which I did as we travelled to Perth. Also stamped the flower and cut that out as we travelled. I was going to put a star at the top, but forgot my punch.

Priceless, Season of Joy, Party Punch

Ink: Certainly Celery, Real Red
