Hold Christmas in Your Heart

christmasinyourheart

Hold on to your jingle bells!  It’s Monday AND my first official Christmas card of the year!!  We had our first snowfalls this weekend during the nights so it didn’t feel that weird to break out the ornament stamps, dies and my beloved little jingle bells :)  Seriously, if I could get away with using those all year long, I would! HA!  I had time to play with this week’s Waltzingmouse Stamps Sketch and it made me think of the gorgeous Vintage Ornaments stamp set.  So then I hauled out my Christmas paper and started playing with a non traditional colour scheme.  I’m definitely a non traditional girl when it comes to Christmas colours so the pink, aqua and red from this Crate Paper pad made me a bit giddy :)

Hey, just to let you all know…I’m getting pretty close to 400 followers!  I know not everyone signs up to be a follower and just follows via bookmarks or google reader, but I thought it would be fun to have a little “400” blog candy when it occurs…so stay tuned!

Have a lovely Monday!

This is definitely a Moe colour card :) Love the ornament and of course, those bells. I'm on the hunt for the craft kits with them at Mike's again :) You will be having a ball with the PTI hop combo's I'm sure - one of them screams your name ;)

Only 1 degree here today - brrrr!! May have to finally turn on the heat in the house!

This makes me want to start singing "White Christmas", Maureen! A dreamy Christmas card in pastels! Love the glittered jingle bells to match the button. The doily looks like a beautiful snowflake!

I love that bright big ornament :) And the perfectly placed buttons and sparkly bells are pretty neat, too ;) I can't believe you already had a snowball fight, and wow...400 followers?! That's awesome!

LOVE it!! I can't believe how the weather has turned on a dime around here... the local mountains got a GOOD dusting over the weekend too.

This card is SO pretty, I love every single part of it. My favourite element is the buttons tucked behind the sentiment oval - I love the way it looks!!

Kate said...

I love your non-traditional palette and particularly those sugary jingle bells. The card is simply exquisite.

I love this, it is just beautiful. Just my style of card and I have that die, might just have a play later. I have not given Christmas Cards a thought this year.
Have a Great Day
