Late Parade entries

Cammie has been busy travelling and having internet issues so I just received her cards today after the original Christmas card parade so here’s the late parade entries.  Some are repeats since we are sisters we have some of the same friends but want to give credit to all those friends and family members that continue to make handmade Christmas cards.

Beautiful Blizzard


I love the Beautiful Blizzard#148562 stamp set from Stampin Up and am sad that it will  retire on January 2,2019 along with the coordinating Blizzard Thinlits #147902. The sentiments in this set are perfect to last the whole winter season.

2018 Wall Christmas Tree

2018_12_29IMG_3828 Today I am posting my annual wall Christmas tree of all the Christmas cards that we receive from our friends and family near and far.  The tree is a nice blend of traditional, photo and handmade cards.  I will do a handmade card parade in the next couple of days.

Penguin March

2018_12_29IMG_3742 For today’s post I used the Making Everyday Bright #148813 stampset and the coordinating Christmas Bulb Builder punch #148013 to create the string of lights.  The sentiment is from the Making Christmas Bright #148046 stampset.  The Snowflake Swirl was cut using the now retired Snowfall Thinlits from Stampin Up.  I used the Subtle Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder for the background layer.

Winter Woods

2018_12_28IMG_0820Walking through woods in the winter is one of the most beautiful experiences and Cammie  recreated it with the photo realistic trees in the Winter Woods stamp set #147658 from Stampin Up.
