Hi all! This is a picture of our 2007 Christmas card using Happy Occasions and the Holiday Collection of digital paper. I printed the paper on a textured cardstock at 25% lighter and since it's hard to tell in the pic, the paper says Just Chillin and there are little snowmen on it. I stamped my "Happy" on white cardstock in Versamagic Pink Petunia ink and punched it out with my largest (purple) scalloped square punch, then stamped the frame in Vivid Brown ink and punched it out with the pink scalloped square punch. I stamped the tree in Versamagic Green Tea and punched it out with the blue punch and added a little star bling on top! Tie a ribbon around the card front and viola...simple, quick and cute! Now the sad part of the story is that I didn't not have time to make dozens of these and send them all out, (why is it that I can take an hour to make a card but not ten minutes to mail it???) so I took a picture of it and emailed it to everyone...sad but true! Nice. Well...isn't it the thought that counts? Some of the DT girls made some cute projects with this set, Cammie, Mary Jo and Carole, so check 'em out! Have a great Wednesday!

Dont feel bad about not getting them out!

I have a friend who starts her Christmas cards in October, but EVERY year they dont end up at our house until Easter. In one week we get Christmas, Thank-you's for gifts, birthday cards and an Easter card. Cracks me up.
