I have told myself that I have to start using the stamps and supplies that I already have that are collecting dust or else I am just going to have to sell them all or give them all away! It is pretty bad in my stamping room...I have so many things that I had to have and needed at the moment that have never been used, it should be against the law, really! I have become quite the collector or stamping supplies!! I just love to shop and I love to stamp so that's what happens when you put the 2 together...
On this card I used the stamp set Boatloads of Love from Stampin' Up and some new paper that I bought months ago at Michaels by Me & My Big Ideas. Aren't you proud of me? I used 2 neglected items at 1 time:)
I made this card to give to my husband. I used to make him cards all the time but kind of got off track with that here lately so he was pretty excited to get a card he could keep and that actually had something written inside of it, lol. Everytime I give him a card to look at he opens it up fully expecting to see something written or stamped on the inside and there never is!!!!!!!!!!!! I dont stamp anything inside until I am ready to give the card to someone cause I never know who it's going to, KWIM?? Do all men do this?? Or is he wierd?? (he's wierd, I know, but he's so darn cute, hehe).
Tomorrow I am going to post my latest Blog Candy Giveaway!! I already know what it is, I just need to take a picture for you and I will do that tonight, I promise!! Speaking of give blog giveaways, I would love to have a snazzy name to call my blog giveaway. Does anyone have a good idea for me?? There would be incentive for the winner so think of something good, ok????? Pretty Please!!!!
In other news, it's New Years Eve and I forgot to make reservations at one of our favorite restaraunts...oops....so I called and of course the only reservation they had was at 4:15 so it looks like i'll be cooking on New Years Eve :horror:
What will y'all be doing for New Years Eve?? I wanna know all about it:)

Needless to say, these are the easiest Christmas cards I had to make all year long! I might have to ask her to help me out with ideas for myself in the future!
Stamps used: Elzybells NA
Ink Used: Adirondack Pitch Black, Copic Sketch Markers, SU! Bashful Blue
Cardstock Used: Papertrey Ink White, SU! Bashful Blue, Pretty in Pink and Winter Brights Simply Scrappin' Kit
Accessories Used: Stardust Glitter Pen, Stickers from SS Kit Unfortunately for me, this isnt the last Christmas project that I have to work on! I still have to make 15 gifts of some kind for the ladies in my office...I am working on making some 2, 5, 7, 10 boxes (if that's what they are called!) or the other boxes with the numbers...2, 5, 7, 8 or something like that, I don't know.
All I do know is that I STINK at measuring and at scoring! I may just be the world's worst measurer and scorer! It's really sad, the amount of perfectly good cardstock I have wasted in the past couple of days trying to fold and score and measure...No, I didnt use scrap paper, I went straight for the SU! cardstock every time and in the trash it went every time! Well, a few are on the computer desk, 1 of which my daughter picked up last night and said "Geesh, you really messed this up, hope you arent giving it to anyone..." She's right.
If I don't blog to you again before Christmas, I want to wish everyone a Merry Christmas ~~ But I might be back before then, who knows??

This first one was my first try and when I showed my husband he said it needed more "3-d ness" to it....and that the trees were a little tight together. He was right but it was my 1st try, KWIM, so as I was putting the trees down, and I saw that they were too close it was too late to change it since they were already stuck. I use Tombow Mono-Multi glue and there is no turing back with that stuff! Once it's down it's down forever!
So, for my 2nd card I planned the layout a little better and spaced the trees out and put some under the front layer of "ground" to give it that "3-d ness" that was suggested. I also used the pretty Basic Grey Figgy Pudding paper that I have been holding onto for "later" that I got at Jacksonbelle's and some silver diamond shaped brads that I thought I would never use for anything.
I think this 2nd card came out much better than the 1st, don't you?
I think I only have about 20 more Christmas cards to make. I am going to try to get them all done this weekend so I don't have to think about Christmas cards anymore this year!! Except for the cards I recieve, of course!
