Good morning to you!
I have a Christmas card to share with you today that uses my Cricut and the Creative Holiday Cards cartridge. It was published in Northridge's Cricut Magazine last year.
I cut the Christmas tree and added glossy accents and clear coarse glitter. I then adhered that to the white panel. The designer paper is from Papertrey Ink.
I popped up the main image using foam tape. I was able to slip red gingham ribbon behind it and tie a bow. I added a few distressed jingle bells tied with twine to the center.
I have been sick all week and my goal this weekend is to try and rest up so I am healthy for the holidays. Of course "resting" will be done in between the 8,000 loads of laundry and the filthy thing I call a house. ;)
I also have a photo shoot tomorrow of a sweet family for Christmas.
But then.....I will rest.
Take out and movies!
Have a great weekend my friends!

Good morning! I am up on the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L blog today! I am sharing a full tutorial on how I created this Christmas card. It had a few of my favorite things......water colors, Spellbinder's die cuts, (Pierced Circles and snowflakes), glitter, and sequins! (Oh my!)
And as is typical of me these days....a totally nontraditional color palate!
I hope you are able to sneak over to the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L blog for a quick peek at my tutorial.
I have another jam packed day today.....
I have a meeting at my school tonight. Cort is coming with because both of my boys are working.
I absolutely have to get to the store for a Christmas party Cortney and I are attending tomorrow.
Nothing like being last minute!
I am realizing I am not as young as I used to be!
Have a great day!!

Awhile back, when I was still creating for Northridge Publishing, I was asked to design a page about an everyday event. What is more "everyday" than homework?
Cort had to conduct a science experiment about denisty.
She was given a list of objects and asked to make a prediction on whether or not each one would float or sink.
Cortney predicted pretty accurately and really enjoyed doing this experiment.
It is another busy, busy week!
I will be heading back to school tonight for my 5th grader's Christmas concert.
It is always fun seeing the kiddos dressed in their prettiest clothes!
We have a couple of Christmas parties this week too....
Have a great day!
I truly appreciate you taking a few moments to pay me a visit!
I know everyone's time is limited at this time of year.
