Glittery Christmas Fun!

It's official. I'm in the Christmas mood! We put our tree up this past weekend. We've made a gingerbread house. And I've gotten a lot of my shopping already finished. I think that starting early will help me enjoy the season more. I'm trying to spread the goodness out over the entire month.

Speaking of enjoying the season, you need to check out a wonderful new blog. Cris Cunningham is hosting a Christmas blog and lots of people (including me ;)) will be contributing projects, layouts, cards and recipes that exemplify how to truly relish the spirit of the season. Oh, and normally I'm not a fan of blogs with music, but you'll have to put the speakers on for this one as she has some wonderful Christmas Carols playing in the background!

Visit Cris' blog here: An Enchanted Christmas

So, onto some projects. This week's 2 Sketches 4 You sketch is so cute. Love the DT'c cards, too. I played around with it for a while and ended up rotating the card 90 degrees to the right. I ended up with this card.



Yeah, I went a little crazy with the layering and jewels, but I love how it turned out.

As you know, today is Tuesday. That means it's MMM blog day. I have been playing around with the little tins my Paper Salon stamps came in. I reorganized my clear stamps this weekend and ended up with a lot of little tins that I didn't want to part with. So, I made some fun ornaments. Here's the sneak peek of the one on the blog.



You can see the whole thing here.

Well, that's it for today. Thanks so much for stopping by!
