oh JOY

Every other Saturday I try to split my time between my two favorite scrapbooking stores. Some folkes don't have one store close to them; I consider myself blessed to have TWO specialty stores, not to mention three large chain stores nearby (JoAnn's, Mike's AND a Hobby Lobby)! This weekend's trek was to Karen's Creative Stamping where I'd missed the last couple make-'n-takes (hey, it comes with the season - weekends get BUSY, right?! LOL!) so they saved my kits. I met up with my stampin' buds - Pat for b'fast, then we met up with Kim at the store - and we got busy stamping. Here's my fav card of the 3-1/2 that I made there. I'm altering the 4th to be more in my style. It had a bright red poinsettia but I favor dark reds and dark greens for Christmas ... like today's featured card!

Today's card also coincidentally works for Saturday's sk121110 sketch layout at Paper Craft Planet. I'm just glad they were all great Christmas cards, as my inventory was slacking. I'd only made 5 Christmas cards so far this month; dunno whazzup w THAT (though, sure, I know that I made some in November too)?!

No deets today - all supplies provided by Karen's. But isn't the tree great, Kim?! It reminds me of a SWEET Tim Holtz die ... sigh ... and apparently the DP was of various similar-themed small pictures (think a couple different reindeers, a close-up on the packages pictured below the tree, etc.) that you could cut and use. Naturally the store ran out of the DP - it was all gobbled up by those who'd attended the make-'n-take that I'd missed, I'm guessing!

"Oh Joy" says Sue as she looks at a tree stamp! LOL
