It's The Most Wonderful Time of the Year

and for my card class a little bit easier to relax and enjoy knowing they have at least some of their Christmas cards ready to go! I thoroughly enjoyed coming up with the 6 cards they made Friday night, but it was hard too. This may be one of the last 2 classes I am able to hold for a while. The economy has hit my family hard and like many we are in a huge position of uncertainty. I'm hopeful, but let all of my nearly 30 regular class members know that I may not be able to continue our scheduled classes. This for me, is one of the hardest parts of the trials my family is currently facing. I love to create, to teach and to be surrounded by friends regularly in my home; I'm sure that without it a very important part of my life will be missing. So here they are, I am hoping you find something here that inspires you!

My personal favorite. I love how this came out! A nice rustic look! So many possibilities with this idea!

The glassine envelope holds snowman parts. . . a snowman for you!

This cheerful card is easy to replicate and holds a warm sentiment framed on the inside.

I tried to get a photo that shows the reflection of the snowflakes on the snowmen. Love the clear card look!

This is a recreation of a card I made many years back. Just love to mimick Santa's belt on a card with his image. This card sparkles inside and out!

It's fun to stretch a "Christmas Card" to the point where you're not quite sure if it is one. I borrowed this idea from Yvette West. She's amazing!

May this truly be the most wonderful time of the year for you and your family. I think I'll go roast some marshmallows now!

Rachele--love, LOVE all of these! I agreee with you, the first one is fab! I really like how you used the three diff. stamps to create a BIG tree! Awesome. The acetate one is darling too, and that star is pretty darn nice!! I love all of your work though--you're very talented. Did you get the candy corn template? If not, let me know! Have a great day,

The glassine card is amazing! How long did it take to pierce all those holes! Did you put cardstock behind it to make it look like tin?

Rachele i have been following your blog for quite a while, and I just realized it was you. These cards are great. I am so glad I finally had time to look at the site and realize it is you.
