MERRY CHRISTMAS to all as we celebrate the birth of our SAVIOR, JESUS CHRIST.

Surprise!!  I am back with a blog post. I am so sorry it has been a while  My creativity was NEGATIVE, ZERO, ZILCH, NADA.  But I persisted to keep looking at creative ideas from other stampers hoping my lost creativity would kick in.  YIPPEE - yesterday I FINALLY got a little bit of creativity itching to come out and I did three Christmas cards and I liked them and decided to go with them for this year.

Thanks so so many stampers who share their ideas on their blogs, and on Pinterest so that I was able to figure out what to do by combining several of those ideas.

Here are my cards.  Each one is just a little bit different, but I really like them!!

 Crumb cake and Night of Navy ink; ivory, crumb cake and night of navy card stock; Woodlands embossing folder, decorative label punch, Lovely as a Tree stamp set plus a retired set for the sentiment.

Believe it or not, these are all made with the same colors, but different intensities make them look a bit different.

 I love how the evergreen trees are peeping out from behind the birch trees, don't you?

Thanks to many stampers, especially Dawn Ochelfski, Ann Craig, Dee Slater, Dianne Sisneros, Anna Masciovecchio, France Martin, Billie Moan, Sandy Griffith, Angie Walters, Debbie Henderson, Nikki Meyers, Ruthie Martini, Amy Jasper, Diane Dimich, and so many more!!

IF you have any questions, let me know.  I am off to the Post Office to mail my cards.  (Yes, I know most will be a day or more or more more late, but that's the way it is this year for me.) LOL

Thanks for stopping by!!

I have been inside all day because of the wet cold weather.  I made some cards from my SSS Card Kit.  My first card I kept very simple because it is so pretty:

It was hard to catch in the photo, but I added sparkle glitter embossing powder to the two trees. I also colored in the two cardinal birds and added some self sticking sequins.  The Merry Christmas wouldn't fit on the outside, so I added it to the inside.

 This card I put two pieces of DSP.  And I cut out the HOHOHO and added the same sparkle glitter embossing powder.  I colored the red roofs and added some red sequins.

This one is my favorite.  I added a piece of striped paper on the right edge and then stamped some stars in both the green and the red inks.  I added both red and green sequins and stamped Merry Christmas in red.

Hope you enjoyed my cards.  As I do some more from this fun kit, I will post them for you.
Merry Christmas.  I feel like I need some music playing Christmas Carols this afternoon!!  GRIN
