Christmas Craziness!

Well, I haven't been as crafty lately as I'd like, but my Christmas shopping is pretty well done and I've been busy filling custom Christmas card orders. It is, after all, that time of year! I participated in my first craft sale last weekend with my friend Helayne. It didn't go quite as well as hoped, but it was okay. We definitely have some ideas on how to improve for the next sale!

A bit of sad news . . . The gingerbread house didn't even get an honourable mention! I'm still glad we made it, though, as it was a great way to stretch and expand my quilling craftiness. Hmm . . . I should go turn on the tealight and turn the overhead light off so I can enjoy it while I have "custody." lol

It's a simple card (below), but a popular one, so I thought I'd share it with you. And one of my favourite Christmas cards! The double slider card below features a QuicKutz die-cut snowflake, a silver mini brad, turquoise Stickles, Autumn Leaves stamping (Flourishes V:I) in the background (and more Stickles!), Tim Holtz distress ink (broken china), a Hero Arts sentiment, and white ribbon, all on Bazzill cardstock (simon and coconut swirl). It takes some practice to make the card, but it 's such fun to make, give, or receive. And, on that note, I must go and make some!
