QUICK CHRISTMAS CARDS

Happy Sunday Morning!  

I hope you all had a fabulous Thanksgiving with family and friends.  Our family's Turkey Day was very, very nice.  It was especially nice having Son No. 1, John, home from college for a few days.  He arrived late Tuesday night, and flew back last night.  Seemed like he was leaving as soon as he got here :o(  He'll be back in about 3 weeks for his long winter break.  Can't wait to have him home again.  And, as in typical CosmoGirl fashion, I took not a one picture throughout the whole T'giving prep, dinner, family visits, etc.  You know, sometimes I just don't feel like fusing with the camera.  I really wish someone else would play "photographer" for once!

I've been on Christmas decor mode for a couple weeks now.  I'm vowing to get all my decorating done by December 1st.  You see, I admittedly go a little overboard when it comes to Christmas.  I like to almost transform the entire house into a Christmas showcase.  I just love it!  Hubby thinks it's a bit much, but honestly, I don't care what he thinks ;o)

These first two cards I made multiples in an "assembly-line" manner.

Last weekend, a good friend hosted a few of us girls at her place near the beach for a girl's weekend away (you guessed it - no pictures!) of scrapbooking, crafting, relaxing, whatever. 
Thank you, Donna :o)!!!  
It was tons of girlie fun!  Like a big girl's sleepover.  



Last year I never got round to making OR sending Christmas cards.  
GASP!!!!  
I still can't believe I let that happen.  So I decided while at Donna's place, I'd work on Christmas cards for this year.  A whole day of creating, and into the wee hours of the next morning, produced almost enough cards for everyone on my card list.  



Since I'm always looking for new card ideas, I thought I'd share what I made.  Super easy and quick cards using some rubber stamps, pretty papers, trims, buttons, dimensional stickers and a little bling.

These next two cards were "one-of-a-kind" creations.









I'm off to finish up the last bit of the Christmas decorating.  Three trees down, two more to go!


Thanks for visiting!

I love your cards, Carla! These are something I would use as decorations they are so pretty. Don't feel bad about not sending out your cards last year, I did the same. I actually wrote them out and just had to adddress them, but never did. Oops! : ) Anyway, it will make this year easier since all I have to do is address them now!

You are so creative, Carla! Scrapbooking has always eluded me. My niece Jill use to sell Stampin Up and I had purchased all sorts of things from her and only used them a couple of times.

Love all your cards!!

Love the cards you made. I agree that you could use them in your decorating. Very nice! Glad you enjoyed your son's visit. My daughter was home too...we enjoyed her and she just left to go back to school till her x-mas break. We got the outside of our house decorated by haven't started inside yet. You are smart to have a Dec. 1st deadline!
