Guess what? I was featured on the Fresh Brewed Designs blog because of this card. I'm so happy. Thanks Heather.
For this card I used a slider from Paulette's shop - TLC Creations. You can't tell from the picture but the slider is hanging on the string of peals like a necklace. It moves when you move the card.

If you have never been to her store, you should. There is ALWAYS something good there to see and get. Her blog is very active as well and you will definitely get a lot of wonderful ideas there. I can't wait to get started with Paulette and the design team!

I am making Christmas dinner, taking pictures of my daughter opening gifts and trying to get some moments of rest. (yeah, that's not happening) But I enjoy every moment of it.
We took Christmas photos this year - YAY! On time this time...but I still haven't mailed any out. Sorry. They're coming.
I hope everyone has a wonderful day today. I sure will.

Xavier weighed a whooping 11 lbs. Momma and Baby are doing wonderful and should be coming home today.
That's Auntie's baby! I can't wait to kiss those cheeks.

This is the last challenge for 2010 with AiFactory and it's an "ANYTHING GOES" challenge. The challenge will run until December 29th, so you have plenty of time to get in your entries.
I'm done with Christmas cards so packaging is still on my to do list. Yeah, I haven't even begun to wrap presents. Maybe if I get enough bags finished I won't have to. So here is my gift bag using a cute fairy image from the store. Be sure to check out the store and the fabulous freebies available.

I am still working on packaging. I don't like wrapping things (it looks so messy when I do it) So gift bags are the way to go. This year I am really dressing them up with digis. If I had more time I might have even pulled out those long forgotten rubber stamps. That's a little too ambitious right now.
This week's Stretch N Bubbles image was a swirly Christmas tree. I put it on a gift bag. I really like these non-traditional colors.

This image is from Deedee's Digis - Little Things collection. I used only scraps to create my card.

Also at this time there is a bonus Prize to win. The AiFactory store has just received a lovely holiday digi pack called Holiday Celebrations. One lucky winner will win the entire collection. All you have to do is enter a challenge and post a blurb or picture of the new set on your blog.
Here is my Christmas Holiday card for this week's challenge. The DT got to play with a another new set in the store filled with holiday birds. This was pretty cute.
I hope you will hop over to the challenge and also check out the store. There is even a great freebie section.

Hello! It's been very busy here in my household, how about you? Christmas is really rushing forward and I feel like I have not even begun to get done all that I need or want to. I still have some photo holders I need to get made and of course we still need to take the Christmas photo. Yeah, we may not make that deadline, so Christmas photos after the holidays (again).
This week's Stretch N Bubbles image was an abstract Nativity image. I think it colored up wonderfully. My mother will certainly love getting this little pillow box with a GC tucked inside.

For her birthday card I used the Beary Happy Birthday image from Deedee's Digis. I think she's going to love her card.
