Wishing you a very Merry Christmas

Here are the samplings of Christmas cards I came up with. Simple and easy to put together. Just my style when it comes to mass quantities!

Here's Card #1: O Christmas Tree

I saw this card done white on white as well and it was exquisit! Really an elegant card. The tree is a Cuttlebug embossing folder.

I used a clear glitte glue to add a little ornamentation to the tree. This picture just doesn't do it justice. You can add any sort of brads, colored glittered glue, etc you would like to ornament your tree.

The inside: "CHRISTMAS"

Here's card #2: "Joy"
White ornament came from Joys of the Season (JOTS) cart.  I also used a Martha Stewart border punch along the edge and Cuttlebug embossing folders.

My Cricut died on me this week and they are sending me a new one. So, the inside of this card can have a "Merry Christmas" in white cardstock that matches the font of the "joy" on the front.

Okay, here is the last card:

Card #3 Mr. Snowman

The inside: Seasons Greetings

M'Lady's Party

My little girl is turning 3 in December. She has been wispering in our ears for months now, "today is my birthday". Three seems to be the magical year a child discovers the celebration of birthdays. Particularly their OWN! I wanted this to be a special birthday year so I decided to throw her a party.

I started one night by making her party invitation. I made a spiral from SCAL and cut it out with several little birthday icons from the Celebrations cart to make a mobile. The spiral is two pieces of paper thick to help support the hanging objects.

Once upon a Columbus...

We have been learning a bit of Columbus this week. I merged the pilgrims story to incorporate Thanksgiving. All pieces came from Cricut's Paper Doll Dress Up cart.  I believe I used a 5 inch doll.
Here's Christopher Columbus with his telescope and map.

Columbus went to the king and queen of Portugal twice to ask for ships. Both times he was denied so he turned to the king and queeen of Spain. On the second try, they finally gave him three ships.
Here's our ships! The Nina, the Pinta, and the Santa Maria. Columbus traveled on the Santa Maria. On Columbus' third trip to the new world, the Santa Maria was destroyed while he was exploring a new land. The natives held him captive there until he was able to sneak away.

Here are our pilgrims and their feast! See the momma --she is praying!

Here are our Indians. Can you see the boy Indian making his "chants"?

I laminated them so we can use them for many more years to come. That is unless the kids wear them out playing with them!
