A Cozy Weekend of Christmas Craftin'

This past weekend I traveled to Ohio with my Husband, my sister and her husband to a hunting retreat.  Sounds fun doesn't it?  Actually we had a wonderful time.  I came prepared with paper, stamps, inks and pretty embellishments to play with while our husbands were out looking for the BIG MONSTER buck.  We were staying in a GORGEOUS cabin with a beautiful warm fireplace (2 fireplaces actually) that was decorated for the holidays.  This provided the perfect atmosphere for our little card making projects.

I brought along two different paper packs, or so I thought I did.   In rearranging my bag that I packed with crafting supplies, I must have taken out the Pear & Partridge paper and forgot to repack it.   But I did have lots of last year's popular Christmas paper - Believe (now retired).  We created 15 cards each so I was really excited to use up some of my stash.   I'm going to share a few of the cards with you over the next couple of days.



Recipe:
Silver Shimmer Ribbon (Z1799)
Believe paper (retired)
Red Merry Christmas Ribbon (from my stash)
Stamp - A Very Merry Christmas - October Stamp of the Month
Bling Assortment (Z1466)
Crystal Blue Ink (Z2177)
Artiste Cricut Cartridge (for Ornament Shape) (Z1790)
