Christmas is... and a Blog Award

I've been in the mood to use some of the MANY new things I've been purchasing lately but haven't gotten around to playing with. Here I made another simple card using one of the new larger format Cuttlebug folders, my new MS holly border punch, some new WIRED ribbon from M's (those cool swirls will STAY swirled!) and The Christmas Long Border from The Cutting Cafe. Really quick and simple but I love how it came out.

Inside I've used another of the many Christmas Card Inside Greetings, also from The Cutting Cafe. These are a life saver for me and you'll be seeing plenty more in the future. I'm so happy that I now have my Printmaster program so I can change the color of these printable stamps. Regina has full instructions HERE for working with the stamps if you're interested. Instructions for resizing and the like too.

I also want to thank my dear friend Leah for this very special blog award. Her friendship means the world to me. Love ya Sweetie! Because I'm feeling really thankful for all you the friend I've met through this wonderful hobby I want to pass it on to each and every one of you. Feel free to copy it and paste it to your blog and say it's from me. I truly appreciate your inspiration and support.
