woohoo it's *MORE* xmas cards!

are you sick of these yet? well, that's a pity because i am only about halfway done!

today's entries again feature the bigger (...& some might say gaudier...) frame cards with the sparkly-gold enhanced ornaments. it took me a few tries to figure out how to use these effectively. you can't be too subtle, or the design gets overpowered; however if you go TOO crazy, you're into an unpleasant overload of warring patterns and colors. (it's dead tricky, this design lark!) i think i have more or less hit a happy medium with these babies:

(patterned paper: dcwv, basic grey, vintage sheet music; chipboard tree: ki memories; brads: queen&co; holiday magic tag: fancy pants; sheet music flower & holly leaves are my own design; candy sticker: dcwv; rub on letters: making memories, american crafts, scenic route; rub-on curlicue stitches: doodlebug; straight stitches i drew with a white uniball pen; other: colorbox ink, jewelcraft gems, foam tape, crop-o-dile for making holes in chipboard)

ps: LHJ says "hi" and "thank you very much" for all the wonderful birthday wishes! we spent his birthday (and thanksgiving) visiting his sister and her family. them what spawned LHJ...aka his parents...were here too, so it was a 50% bergoldian reunion. we are heading home--turkey-stuffed & in a pleasant tryptophan haze--later today.
