12 Days of Christmas!!!

I hope you all have had a wonderful, relaxing Thanksgiving holiday. Our was truly blessed, with great family all around and of course the wonderful scents and tastes of autumn. Now that we find ourselves truly beginning the Christmas season, I will be offering some inspiration for you! Between now and Christmas I will be offering 12 new posts with Christmas cards, new techniques or ideas to keep your holiday Beautifully Simple. You can even follow my blog so you won't miss a day. Here are some cards from the Wishes book to get us started! I have used the Greetings Card Workshop here, with Jingle paper and Wishing Star stamps D1333. Featured exclusive Close to my Heart colors are: Tulip, Juniper and Creme Brulee. Techniques used include: sponging edges, scissor distressing, perfect two-step stamping with our clear stamps, and sanding, of course! How many of you are making your own cards this year? Leave me a comment with how many you plan to make, so we can cheer each other on
