Anyhow, for those of you who know of or have little children my friend just introduced me to Just between Friends. It's a huge consignment event that happens twice a year. They have them at around this time of year. If you're a penny pincher you might want to check it out (see there website for locations) I don't get paid or any perks for promoting this. I only share it because I think it's a neat idea. With our little ones growing so fast it's nice to be able to sell moderately used clothes and make some money to buy some fitting ones :)
Now for the fun stuff!!! I have yet another X-mas card to share with you. I made this one like 5 years ago (yeah, I know it's an oldie). It's one of the first cards I ever created. In fact, it's my first christmas card. If you notice there is not a single stamped image if I recall correctly I think I only owned 2 single stamps and one ink pad (black). That's because I was so intimidated by that technique I remember telling my friend how I would never get into rubber stamping. Over 200 stamps later I find myself banging myself for not starting sooner. Thankful however, that I did start ;) So without further a do I introduce my very first christmas card. I kept this card for myself. Maybe I'll give it away this year as an anniversary card :)
One thing I've kept through out my entire cardmaking adventure is simplicity. I guess that's who I am. I've tried incorporating layers and boy do I have a hard time creating them and when I finally finish they go to my scrap stash because they look so tacky. I really admire all of you ladies that can make awesome looking, full on decked out cards. Seriously, it's a talent!!!
Thanks for stopping by!! Hopefully by tomorrow I'll get back to the present season with fall them creations :)
Cardstock: Bazzill (can't remember the color)
Other: Raffia white, the plastic sheet was cut from a package the rest are stickers by Stampendous. The white little snowflakes are from a punch I bought way back then from the $1 store
