My Christmas Cards

These are the cards I made to send to specific family members. I wish I was so full of talent that I could come up with 35 or 40 different cards so each family on my list would receive their own, unique card. But since that is never going to happen, I will settle for a few individual ones :)
 The first two are for my grandkids. I will admit the Santa and Chimney  one - from Simply Charmed -is my all time favorite card I have made so far! When I added the last of the Stickles ( more glitter, Grammie!! ) and stepped back, well, I was SOO happy with the results. The Reindeer card has been in in my head for my grandson's first Christmas card since I first got Create A Critter in the mail. I couldn't find background paper the I loved so I altered some I liked to suit me.


The next two I totally copied the main idea from a  very talented poster on the Cricut message boards. I am sorry I can't remember who you are, but I will give you credit if I can find the original post, or some one lets me know who it was :) The Smiley faces and the ho ho ho's are from the Smiley Cards cart for the Gypsy. The Santa hat is from Paper Doll Dress Up.

And lastly, I needed a more masculine card for our nephews. I have had this Stampin Up stamp since last year and hadn't used it. I think I will  be using it more for next year. I can see lots of other design uses for this image .

The plain papers and ink are Stampin Up and the patterned papers are Die Cuts With a View.

Some day I will be better at writing down the sizes I cut things at, but not this time... sorry...

I have one more card to get a picture of, hopefully tomorrow...

Thanks for stopping by. Feel free to leave me a comment and let me know what you think :)
