They're all teddy bears and snowflakes again,
but one is purple/lavendar and the other is pink/red. Still hoping to do more before Christmas, but these had to be done pronto because they have already been mailed to a couple very special people in California.
These are unbelievably quick to do with just some wire hangers, tinsel and lights.

|Make a slide show, scrapbook, or ecard|
Okay, so now that I have this blog thingie, I just had to import the slideshow showing the Christmas trees I made at the last minute last year. My friend and co-worker had made a bunch of these and brought them to work to decorate and put us into the Christmas spirit. We were so awed by her creativity, and she shared the instructions to make them with us. Can you believe that it's basically just wire hangers, tinsel and lights? (Once you start the slideshow, move your curser around on the screen and see the magic!)

This was my first attempt at a trifold pop up card. Instructions from the book "Cards that Pop up, Flip & Slide" by Michael Jacobs. Sent this card to an ebay seller I recently purchased a Jasminc cart from at an incredible price. After the auction, I noticed her feedback score wasn't too high and I worried that I had made a bad decision. Made and sent this card to her with my payment, hoping that it would encourage her to send me the cart as soon as possible. Well, so far no cart yet, but I have my fingers crossed that I will get it in the mail any day now...! Puppy and butterfly are from Paperpups, the "thank you" from Beyond Birthdays and of course my favorite swirls Cuttlebug embossing folder to add to the front panel.

This was my first card created with my Cricut machine and the Mickey & Friends cart. Also used a Cuttlebug template to emboss the background. A friendship card made for Ryan as he headed off to design school in California.
