It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like...

Yep. How'd you guess?! CHRISTMAS!!! :) I have spent the whole day creating/putting together/engineering my holiday cards for this year. Now, I REALLY don't like making a ton of the same card, so this year, I made three different ones! All the same layout, based on the CASE I did earlier, but different.

So, I'm happy! :) 20 of each card = 60 cards done! I may need to make some more...I'll keep you posted!

Thought you'd find it funny to see how I dry my inked up card fronts as I stamp~

Yep. Hanging from pens, etc. My DH laughed and told me I was crazy--I AM!!! I'm on a stampage, duh! ;D

I'm submitting these to the following fabulous challenges:
Tip Top Tuesday~Anything Christmas
Cute Card Thursday~Red for Remembrance (just the red card...obviously...)
Christmas Stampin' All Year~Never Seen Ink (all my sentiments were brand new--bought today!)

Anyway, without further ado, here they are! :)

Red for Remembrance~

Detail~

Yes, those little clear dot thingies ARE discolored--guess what? I LOVED that they were! Because the middle of poinsettias are yellow! SO, it works! And I was glad to use something that technically could be thrown!!! :)

Blue Brilliance (my DH's fave, and mine, too!)~

Detail~

Rhinestones make me happy!!! And I love when just one makes all the difference in the world! :)

Royal Purple~

Detail~

Glitter detail~

I added subtly glimmer and glitz with a clear glitter gel pen (my best friend *sigh*). These are for my religious family and friends. I love the darker and more royal colors for the King of Kings' birthday card. :)

Thank you for stopping by and taking a look at my creations--you truly make my day! I hope you're inspired to create today! Season's stamping! :)
