Are you all thinking about holiday cards yet?  If you can believe it, we have less than 12 weeks to go!  Make sure you are signed up for my newsletter, so you can get the next 11 weeks of my 12 Weeks of Christmas Inspiration Campaign!  Click here to subscribe and get your free gift!



I decided to use this week’s color combination to make a Christmas Card.  The inspiration for this color combo came from pages 6 and 7 of the Stampin’ Up Catalog.  If you do not already have a copy and would like to purchase Stampin’ Up goodies from me, send me an email and I will get one in the mail to you.

This is a bit different combo that I have used on a Christmas Card and all the while making it, I was thinking BLAH!  I don’t like this!  Has that ever happened to you?  But when I finished and it all came together, it’s much prettier than I thought it woud be!  What do you think?

    Sick and tired of obtaining low amounts of useless visitors for your website? Well i want to let you know about a new underground tactic that produces myself $900 every day on 100% AUTOPILOT. I could truthfully be here all day and going into detail but why dont you simply check their site out? There is a excellent video that explains everything. So if your serious about making simple cash this is the site for you. Auto Traffic Avalanche
