"Instant Christmas" In A Jar......

Thanksgiving is just two days away...and
Christmas is right around the corner...but in case you're not greeting it with unbridled enthusiasm...here's something that might help.
                                 A mason jar filled with "Instant Christmas"....trees to decorate, candy canes, a reindeer, a gingerbread boy, red and silver decorations for the tree...and a big "Merry" (Cause you always need a little more "Merry").
                                 Acetate makes up the jar....the silver jar lid and the red and silver dots are Mirracard...which doesn't show up well in a scan...but they're bright and shiny on the card itself.

Triangle Snowman Card....

                   A small square card featuring a simple triangle Snowman.....dresssed up with a stocking hat and fringed scarf to keep him warm. (It gets cold out there when you're just standing around looking cute!)

Connor's First Snow.......

                                   Matt showed Connor snow for the first time. By the smiles on their faces....I think they both approved.

It's Cold Out....Put Your Hat On

                                  Another card done for the C.A.R.S. group monthly swap...the theme for this month was "Bargello".  I'd never done Bargello with paper before ....and while it was a lot of steps....I enjoyed it.

Good Weather For Snowmen....

               Snow is piling up outside....perfect for making a snowman. This snowman on the card isn't as wet or cold as the ones outside...but he sure looks pleased with the weather.

Paint Chip Christmas Card....

                         One of this year's Christmas cards made for the C.A.R.S. group ( Chicago Area Rubber Stampers) monthly swap. The theme for this card was "Paint Chips". I chose this wonderful set of periwinkle blue paint chips and made it Christmasy by adding a die cut reindeer and a snowy white embossed mat. (And a bit of glitter on the reindeer's antler.)
