A little more Christmas.

Everyone enjoying the Olympics?!  We watched quite a bit of the action yesterday, it's so exciting!  Hunter was over the moon when the Canadian girls soccer team won yesterday! (she's obsessed with Canada!)  I also spent the day doing some stuff around the house that needed some serious attention.  Moved lots of furniture around, purged old stuff from Maddie's room, etc.  Feels good to get those projects done.  Now, I need to seriously paint some walls! (yuck)

When I decided to do the Christmas challenge over at Anyone For Anya, I pushed myself to make a few more Christmas cards.  

This was a tree stamp from Rubbernecker.  It's a nice rustic looking card.

I stamped the tree twice, then cut both out and added a little brown distress ink around the edges of it.  I popped up the top one with 3D dots, then gave it some liquid pearls accents.  This shouldn't be too bad getting through the mail.

I love this little tubby snowman!  This is a Unity stamp
Roly Poly Winter Joy, given to me last winter by 
my stamping buddy Kim!

This card was made with more fun, whimsical colors.  When I finished coloring him up, I used some red chalk on his cheeks, makes him look nice and cold!  The sentiment is from a Xmas set I picked up at Michaels last year.  Another simple card that should make it through the mail a-okay!

Made these last night-

    Congrats on all you accomplished yesterday. Seems like a lot to cross off.
    Olympics rock! All except for the dumb questions some of the reporters ask. O and the fact that when you log in to the internet the results are already posted. Other than that, it's awesome! hahaha!
