You know... I like basic, simple things. And I happen to L-O-V-E craft paper (the look of it)! This... is what I started with. 

It's TIME to make Christmas CARDS!!!!

Remember MISTI? She's my new best friend. She makes all those off-centered or imperfect cards that I used to make look like...
And then I had to drag out CB... She hasn't played in a while (Cuttlebug, people... Not an actual person!!!)
And I cranked through over 30 times! Let's get real... I lost count...
I thought the edges needed a little deco... So I cropped them with one of my Crop-A-Dile Corner Chompers. (This one is "photo.") Obviously, I did the same with the craft cards, too...
And Santa came a little early and brought me these Spectrum Noire Sparkle Markers (I call my UPS driver Santa... even though "I" pay for it... YES! I ordered them off HSN...) They still came BEFORE Christmas and in time for my Christmas Cards!
Aren't they so pretty? (I used clear. Actually I had my friend pretty them up while I worked a swim meet... I think she had fun!)
So pretty! Simple, too! I love the look!

And there you have it! MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!
 Up next is Alicia, who has something magical for you, as well!

Here's our line up in case you get lost:
