Some new cards finally



All my creativity has been sucked dry lately. I haven't played my violin, and although I stare at my craft supplies everyday as I sit here at the computer or watching TV, nothing is happening. Well it didn't help I travelled for work the past 2 out of 3 weeks either.

It was actually a local radio station that got me going today... they do continuous Christmas music starting around now, and they started yesterday. I put it on, and was able to churn out two cards!

Started with the cute house mouse image and then played around with my cricut. The tree is cut with the Christmas cartridge. Then I put tape on the back of it so the sticky side showed thru and trimmed all the edges. Then dumped green glitter all over and pressed it into the sticky. The white snow was cut, then I put thru my xyron to make them sticky and them dipped in diamond dust. The flower is made from two flowers punched from the 5 petal stampin' up! punch. The leaves are from the poinsettia from JOTs, I think. The star on top of the tree is a sticker.

Wow, these were a lot of work. Doesn't Christmas music get us going. I've been listening to the soundtrack to Elf and the Peanuts gang!

Good job on these!

Patti, these are just lovely. I've been playing a lot of Christmas music too. "I wanna hippopotamus for Christmas." And I made a fun "hippo" card. Inspiring music! :0)
Really great cards.
