I just had to make 6


I went in my craft room yesterday in search of my mojo. I pulled out my Christmas file stash and spread it out on the floor. I had exactly one 12x12 of this snow flake paper. I start thinking," Okay, that will mat 6 cards. Where are my snowflake heavy metals?" I search my heavy metals storage container and found 6 MM snowflake eyelets. Then I think, "Let me find my rub-ons." I search my rub-ons bag and found a package of MM with "merry christmas (snowflake)". Can you guess how many came in the package? Yep, 6! Then I thought,"Now, for coordinating cardstocks...reds are hard to match and this is a funny red...no luck in the dozen or so reds cs shades in my stash...let me check my DCWV cards & envelope box (digressing for a moment... I love these DCWV cards & envelope boxes! I'm on my third box. Michael's sells them and I they put them on sale at 50% off quite often. I've used all the black, white, brown, yellow, but I have A LOT of this red color from previous boxes; yeah, more than 6. LOL!)...unbelievable! This hard to match card base matches perfectly :) The green cs is called "tropical green" from ACMoore open stock cs. Oh yeah, and I used my SU! ticket punch on the corners.
Stay tuned for my belly band card I'll post tomorrow...I just finished it. I came up with it in my little head last night.

These are lovely. I can't make the same card twice - it drives me potty. Sometimes I really wish I could as trying to make 60 Christmas cards and make them all different can be a bit of a challenge! :-)
