MY 2012 CHRISTMAS CARDS...using jots

for the records, we are having our first 2012 snow day here in the neighborhood. i woke up to a fine dust and as the day goes, the flakes are getting a bit bigger. they are expecting 1-3 inches of it. we shall see. 
nah, it did not happen on my area anyways. :P

remember the poinsettia i made here? i used the christmas noel for that one but, i found this other one in the joys of the season (jots- after watching a you tube video) and i wanted to try it. the image is #38 on the overlay and i used the blackout feature for it. i cut two of them at 4 inches, one at 3 inches and one at 2 inches. oh! and the pretty leaves are also from jots: image #34 using the layer and shift features and i know the double sided paper is from k&co.
 all my papers are from my stash and if i recall there is some basic grey, dcwv and mme. i went and bought the small beads for the center at acm. 

i already had made the base for my cards and i just needed an embellishment for the focal point.

Just for You
5.5" x 4.25"

these are my card bases that i had previously made and below you will see the computer printed sentiment. i got this sentiment from a greetings card cd i have.

i hope you like my christmas cards for this year. i am not done with them and i won't be making too many either because the extra postage. the ones i make dimensional will be delivered by hand with their gifts. the postal ones will be having a flat poinsettia. :)

anyway, i wanted to blog about Webster Pages Sprinkle Monthly Box. I ordered the november box and my package somehow got delivered to someone in washington state. anyway, i complained about it (after i checked the delivery confirmation), and their customer service couldn't be more helpful. 
they are awesome and i wanted to give them kuddos here on my blog.
 the link above will show what the sprinkles box is all about and how inexpensive it is to get one!

and with the good.... comes the bad too, lol

 another kit i ordered but with this one i got totally burned :D. it was a halloween kit from well known designer. i couldn't be more disappointing. not only i paid a fortune but the extra goodies she sent for the immense tardiness did not make up for the burn. i was very impulsive with this purchase: well, never again.
i won't be mentioning any names here but i will say some "details" are not worthy. and that is that. hehe.

and now i retire to my studio where i will be finishing some more christmas cards.

hope you all had a great thanksgiving. 
i know i did: my son came home and we had such a great time.

take care now, and i will see you soon!
