Merry Christmas Everyone!

Hi! I wanted to take the time to wish each and everyone who stops by "A Very Merry Christmas" and "Happy New Year!" This is a CAS card using the Recollections 3-D Embellishments from last year that I still have in my stash...Just put them on a cut out snowhill and blue background with stars in the sky behind them...I thought it would be a fun card to put on here with the snow falling over the blog...Hugs....Cookie

Snowmen in Florida?

I know you might be thinking Snowmen in Florida??? I dont usually use snowmen as part of my holiday decor but when I saw these sweet wooden snowmen I thought they were so cute! I found the tree in the background at Old Time Pottery for only 4 bucks and added some battery operated twinkle lights and tucked the battery holder inside the basket I put the tree in that was only 99 cents! The lantern I picked up at Michaels in the Wedding section...its a simple whimsical centerpiece for the dinette that lights up really pretty at night...Stop by The Lettered Cottage for some really awesome Christmas Ideas!

Christmas Angel...

Hey! I wanted to share another one of the Christmas Mimi Set images from Penny Black...I really wanted to cut out and pop up the star for fun and I also added some sakura stardust pen to make it sparkle...I first stamped Mimi then scanner her and resized to make her a bit bigger than the original ( I LOVE being able to do that with the computer).
Thanks so much for stopping by today!

I LOVE Nutcrackers! They come in so many different styles and sizes...Today I wanted to share this photo I took at my Aunt Melba and Uncle Bill's house during Christmas last year...I found out they love them too! Arent they cute?! So when I saw these 3-D Embellishments I just had to get them...Hey Penny not sure if this is the set you were thinking of or not but here it is...And like all the Recollection 2011 Christmas sets I just place them on the white cardstock and mat them with a color to coordinate...Super easy! And I love that....Have a great weekend and thanks for stopping by!
