Holiday Greetings-

Hi everyone---we are half way thought this week and I am packing my bags again for a work trip to San Fran!  This time we are doing an event at a local mall for one of our new products--if your in Dallas--there will also be one at Stonebrier Mall in Plano this Saturday.
Today's card was simple--see for yourself.
I used one of the Creative Memories Cartridges for the gifts--the paper is all MAMBI Christmas stack I picked up at Joann's.  If you could see the amount of Christmas paper I have you would laugh that I bought more!
Here is a close up--I used some glossy accents to high light the polka dots and give a litter texture.  I also cuttlebuged the white background with the Holly folder. 
I used the glossy accents on the background to highlight the holly berries.  
I finished off the inside with a few of the left over bits. 

Thanks for stopping by and make sure to check back on Friday there is more goodness in store. 
make it a great one-

A present card...

Hello everyone--it's been a great long holiday weekend and I am so not ready to go back to work but one must do what one must do; and I must go back to work.
I did go a little shopping and cooking over the holiday but nothing crazy.
How was your holiday?  What deals did you walk away with?

Today I have a quick and easy card for the Christmas holiday that will be here before you know it!
This simple A2 card was made using one of the Sizzix embossing folders I got at 75%+25% off at Joann's.  I used my Tim Holtz sanding block to distress the cordinations paper.  

The sentiment is from a CTMH stamp set called Christmas Melodies--one of my all time favs.  I used some red heat embossing powder and my heat gun to get this nice shiny look.
Now for the bow--i used some ribbon from Michael's that was a fun print.  I faked this box--made a loop and than added a PC to the center--I wanted to show off the ribbon and when I tied it in a bow it did not look nearly as in testing.
So this week I have two more projects to share-one card and one double page non-traditional layout.
Make this Monday a great one!
