Krafty Christmas Trio

Pin It

Such a productive week it has been!  I'm giddy with all the things I got accomplished.  It's rewarding to actually be able to cross things off the to-do list.  Even better that some of the things DH and I got done this week are visible accomplishments!  Among the to-do's that are ta-done, DH put up some gorgeous shadow boxes in our bedroom and I got more Christmas cards made. :)  These are a few more from this kit I got at my LSS.
This trio uses MB kraft cards for the base that was stamped with an SU background stamp.  The set is one that came in a goodie bag from one of the awesome secretaries at my school gave me.  She had a whole bag of old SU stuff and wanted to know if I wanted it 'cause she wasn't going to use it.  Does a corgi like food?!?  Of course!  I've got some goodies in the making as a thanks to her. :)  The joy sentiment came from a set of letterpress cards I got at PaperSource.  See all the flowers on the middle card?  I'd love to say I planned this, but I smudged the sentiment and had a "make it work" moment.  Happy accidents are awesome sometimes. :)

I off to get "krafty" with these folks:
Catered Crop- Seeing Red
Stamping for the Weekend- Bingo- Ribbon,Sparkles, Flowers
Moving Along with the Times- Lots of Layers

Imagine my surprise and delight when I stopped by Carol's Ink Spot to discover she was listing lil ole me on her Liebster Blog Award!  *blushing*  Thank you so much and right back at ya Carol!!!

I've copied what she had to say about this award so that I wouldn't mess it up. :)

Liebster is German for 'dearest' and this award is a 'share-the-love' arrangement. It is given to inspirational bloggers with less than 200 followers.

Here's the to-do list of any Liebster award recipient:

1. Thank the giver and link back to the blogger who gave it to you.
2. Reveal your five blogger picks and let them know by leaving a comment on their blog. (I got to Carols blog before I saw her comment on on mine. LOL!)
3. Copy and paste the award on your blog.
4. Hope that those you award forward it to their favorite bloggers.
 So in no particular order, places I stalk...
1.  Lynn at From My Bungalow she has an amazing eye for CAS cards- I struggle so much with those
2.  Isabelle at Inkerbelle's  a friend who pre-dates the existence of blogland, she is the most talented colorist ever!
3.  Lisa at 78 thistles another pre-blogland friend who can make the most amazing creations with punches and various teeny paper scraps- she's been recuperating from a skiing accident, so she hasn't been able to post much but maybe when she is better...
4.  Shilo at Paper Meets Glue such luscious colors and photo vignettes!
5.  Gloria at Paper Blessings she even makes Fimo creations to match her paper creations- awesome :)

So thanks for the inspiration Ladies!  Who inspired you today?

    Your cards are wonderful and your 'cover up' is wonderful!
