Kelly's 2nd place routine!

Hubby finally downloaded the video and here it is. They crumbled coming out of a cradle and that cost them 1.5 points. They would have taken 1st place without that deduction! We are soo proud of her!

Christmas card...every year I hand make Christmas cards and have been doing so for over 5 years. The cards started simple and have grown ever more complex every year. To the point that they just take way too much time...stamping, cutting, assembling...So this year...I wanted to simplify the process and this is the card I came up with...EASY PEASY!!! I plan on making 60 today and getting them in the mail on Monday! I was inspired by a card I saw in a magazine. It had 4 squares of primary colors with an eleborate snowman popped up. Immediately, I knew this was my easy peasy card. I bought white pre-made cards (5x7) from Walmart...big time saver right there. The squares are 2.25" from Martha Stewart's Christmas line. The tree is cut via the cricut and design studio. I get 10 trees per sheet and am using Designer's Calendar. I did ink up the squares a bit and ran the tree through the cuttlebug. A little stickles on the tree and a glitter snowflake to top the tree...viola...easy peasy card! I'm soo excited to get these done this weekend.

So...ready to hop...The next blog to visit is Sheri Fink's --> must visit and comment on all blogs to qualify for the draw of the grand prize. Plus, follow my blog and get an extra draw for my RAK! Let me know in the comment if you have decided to follow!

Happy Blogging and Merry Christmas!
