I'm back and I seem to have a lot to say today!

Say... what's that?!

It's a weird picture of some of the digital paper I was telling you about the other day!

I purchased the digital Holiday Collection paper over at My Favorite Things last week and it took me several days to get it downloaded. The several days was operator error... I called a friend of mine yesterday morning and told him about my download and the problem I was having and he gave me a different perspective and I opened my new Winzip program and there it was! Boy was I excited!!
So as I sat and worked on Christmas cards I couldn't resist printing some of them out to see how they looked. I'm impressed, they're nice! What more could a girl need? An endless supply of patterned paper and she doesn't even have to store it, just print on demand. I may never have to leave the house again, what will they think of next?


I have one dozen more Christmas cards to make for an order and I'm done! I've just completed a little more than 600 Christmas cards for this season.... and I haven't used all my Christmas stamps yet.

These two pictures are gift card holders using some of my new digital paper and my Elzybell's stamps that have been sitting on my kitchen table patiently waiting for me to have time to play with them.

Oh, I found the velcro tonight for these to keep them closed. I used a cool little magnet on my last one. Someone left a comment about the magnet messing up the strip on the gift card inside. GOOD POINT! I'll use that one for cash if I need it!

Supply List for gift card holders - Stamps - Elzybells, Merry Christmas by Hero Arts (the crooked one) and Inkadinkado, Paper - Neenah Super Smooth Solar White, Thepapermillstore.com Sky Blue Light, Blue Deep and Red Light, MFT Digital Patterned Papers, Ink - Palette Noir, Real Red, Brilliant Blue, Accessories - Copic markers, Copic Spica Glitter markers, Snowflake punch, Blue Rhinestone, Spellbinders Oval & Scalloped Oval dies, Corner rounder punch.

My last picture today is of 3 of the cool Christmas cards I've received from friends who make their own cards so far. I love getting hand made Christmas cards too! Top left is from Diane, top right is from Judy and the one on the bottom is from Stacy.
One last thing today~ Sharon signed my guest book today, she's from Bouse which is about 30 minutes from Parker where I live. She asked if I used to work at the Safeway in Parker. Yes I did, I worked for Safeway for 18 years, I had 2 more children at 40 years old and had a hard time finding day care for them so I decided to be a stay at home Mom and now I'm a stamp at home Mom! Sharon also said she received one of my Christmas cards today at work from Shelly at the La Paz County Recorders office. I think that's pretty cool! Maybe she'll end up in one of my card making classes some day.

My son just said "she's crazier than you" when I told him that you have made over 600 christmas cards!! I can't beleive that!! that is A LOT of cards! Wow. And I love your downloaded paper -- it is kinda scary the whole idea of never needing to leave your house, of course if you are not in the scrapbooking store you can't spend money....something I keep seeming to forget!! lOving your blog!!
