Merry Christmas!

Yes, I realize it's only August! I am wanting to handmake all my cards this year, so I need to get a head start on them! This is the first one down :) I have some PTI christmas stamps from last year coming to me this week, so I'll be getting busy once those are prepped and ready!

I used FTL #56 for this. I really liked how it turned out. Once I had the idea of what I was going to do, it went pretty quickly! So much easier sometimes when you have a layout (and a few examples) to get one done yourself.

After doing this, I realized that I need more PTI supplies than what are coming in my shipment this week....uh oh! :) The tree stamp is one that I picked up from the Flower Factory for like 89 cents. Can't beat that! Of course, I have no clue who made it.

Supplies (all PTI unless noted):
Paper - Dark Chocolate, Pure Poppy, Stampers Select White
Ink - Ripe Avocado, Pure Poppy, Dark Chocolate, Studio G Orange
Stamps - Christmas Trees ??, Polka Dot Basics, Mega Mixed Messages
Other - Ribbon Scrap Pack Red Ribbon, Marvy Corner Rounder, FTL#56

Very cool!!!! I'm going to a stamping party in Sept and there I'm going to pick out my design for my cards this year. I made mine back in 2007 and they were just okay. This year I wanna knock them outta the ball park.

where is the flower factory?

Cute cards! Hope you are offended by our store bought ones... I wish I had just an ounce of your talent!
