Should old aquaintance be forgot and never more to roam.....

Happy New Year and welcome to 2009. I hope everyone had fun celebrating the passing of 2008, we sure did.

While 2008 will be forever etched in my mind, I am more than happy to see it's passing and to embrace the wonders that 2009 has to bring us.

I have a few Christmas cards that I made left to show you and then I am moving onto other things. Yeah! I can hear you all cheering all the way from here. LOL

This first one I made using the wonderful gifts I recieved from Catherine. This was super easy to create because the DP already had the layout printed on it. All I did was add the stamped image and some embellies and it was done. Easy, peasy!

This next set was made for a gift exchange at work. The basket was filled with some yummy Key Lime Almond Bark candy that I made. That card is one of those pop up gift card holders they had featured in a challenge on SCS and was perfect for the Target card that I gave. My coworker loved it!

This last card was made using my wonderful Just Rite stamps that I recieved from my SBS2 sistah Alana right before Christmas. I had some red cellophane left over from my gift wrapping and thought it would be fun to try and stamp on it with my White Stazon. I really like the results and will have to remember to try this again. The wreath was made with my MS fern punch and red stickles.

Hi Becky!
You are the best person to be Secret Santa for! I always wonder if people will get use out of the things I give - boy you didn't waste any time! And how cute!
All of these cards are so amazing! Red cellophane? Talk about ingenious! Wow!
