The Holidays are Coming!
My dining room has most definitely seen better days. Between the two of us, Mom and I have a TON of Stampin' Up! stuff. We decided to spend the weekend making Christmas cards, whatever caught our fancy. I spent Friday night playing with stamps and papers getting a feel for how best to cut the papers and lay them out.
I LOVED having Woli here. She brought what seemed like a million ideas with her, as well as cut paper. I knew I could figure out what to do stamping wise, it was the paper cutting that had me stymied at first. Then, I figured it out! Yay me!
I have had such fun playing the past two days. Mom and I had to take a break last nigh since B and I had a retirement dinner to attend. I love Anthony dearly and was more than happy to go. However, I wished there was a little more time in the day so that I could stamp when I came home. It didn't work out. There was Hokies football to watch and then it was bedtime. Many of these cards I designed today.
B thinks this one is pretty fun. I'm still working on ways to modify it a bit.
I liked this one particularly well. I did the one with "Cheers" for Paul. :o)
I like the little button brads on this guy. I'm not sure yet how I feel about the card. We'll see if I make a couple of modifications with the colors or not.
I wish my camera wasn't broken. It had been on its last legs for a while, but then, the LCD screen somehow got cracked, and the colors are very off in the photos. Oh, well. My birthday and Christmas are coming. ;oP
I do so enjoy the creative outlet provided by the card making. I know Hannah got a lot of her creative energy from me. :o) Mom is full of wonderful ideas as well, but when her cards are finished she always says, "Oh, I really don't like this one." I don't see it. I think she does a wonderful job! :o) Maybe she'll share some of hers on her blog.
