Christmas Cards

I've been playing in my room finally. I've been trying to decide what to do for our Christmas cards. I've made a bunch and still can't decide which one I like best.

I like this one because it is not traditional Christmas colors. I used Chalet argyle paper from Chatterbox, old olive for the strip. I stamped the Christmas stamp out of the So Many Scallops set.

This one is using old olive for the background, stampin up designer Christmas paper from last year, So Many Scallops stamp set again, River Rock stitched ribbon. The red paper is riding hood red.

I think this is one of my favorites. I used Mr. Twigster. I think he is adorable.
Here's what I used for this one: paper - whisper white, bashful blue, stamps - mr. twigster, some snowflakes I got at walmart stamped with Versamark ( I threw away the packaging and don't remember who's they are). Merry Christmas sentiment is from A Cardinal Christmas. ribbon - don't know where I got it, it was just some white see through stuff that looked cool.

This stamped image is my favorite. I'm just not very happy with the final product.
stamps - aida cloth in close to cocoa, sprig thing is from A Cardinal Christmas. I used my zig markers in evergreen and spice to ink it up. Then I spritzed it with my water bottle.
paper - SU designer christmas paper from this year.
other misc - black brads

Can you tell I love A Cardinal Christmas??? I used 2 colors on this whole thing, Riding Hood Red and Whisper White. The ribbon was some $1 a spool stuff I got at BigLots. Can you tell I like a good deal??

This one is because of a class I took at the Great American Scrapbook Convention this past summer. I took a class by Stamps by Judith. Love her stamps!!! I used fall flair to do something similar to what we did in the class I took. I don't remember what colors I used. They were all greens. Oh and a red too.

I take back what I said earlier...I think this is my favorite image. I love this bird. I used my copics to color it. Once again I'm not happy with the final product but I love the image.

Well, that's what I've been working on the last couple of days. Before that I've been trying to finish up some sewing projects. I'm going to take pics this afternoon and try to post. Got to go fix lunch for Joseph.
