Better late than never!! Is it just me, or is it the time of year?! Lately, I feel like the harder I work to get ahead, the farther behind I fall! Usually by this time, I am finished shopping with the exception of a gift or two. Not only am I generally finished shopping, but they are all wrapped and under the tree. Do you know what is under my tree right now? NOT A THING! Just a poor lonely tree skirt! If I don't get out soon, I am going to hit the panic button!!! On the plus side, I've nearly completed my homemade gifts.

On to other business! Here are a couple Christmas cards.

I finally got a little time to scrap. It felt sooo good to sit down a create! The center block of this card is some rubons. I doctored them up with some stickles! Stickles...sooo addicting! I just love the Websters lace on this one!

This one is primarily cardstock, with a little Basic Grey pattern paper, ribbon, stickles, and a few jewels. Isn't it amazing how pretty plain old cardstock is when embossed with the cuttlebug?! I embossed the plain white with a couple different embossing folders, adding stickles to the center of the snowflakes. A little pattern paper for a matte. I then embossed some green Core'dinations cardstock, sanded lightly, and cut into triangles for trees. Add a few accessories and Waalaaa!!

Have a great day!

i know just what you mean about falling behind. nothing under our tree either...and most days the tree skirt is gone too. either the dogs run off with it or the kids move it to play underneath the tree. i think you know which child would do that! :) great cards btw! especially the tree one!
