more holiday cards

here's another "best of" group i like to call, "the ones with words on"! having discovered a bit of a cache of bling, and some older chipboard words that had accumulated, i decided to use them up! again, i used one basic layout, but varied the papers and trimmings on each card, so they'd be easy and quick-- but still a bit creative and fun to make!

a couple of quick money-saving tips i learned this year: 1. buy bling words off season...they're $2.50 at full price, and under $1 in the clearance section at michaels (& there are ALWAYS some in the clearance section!); 2. walk right past the expensive stacks of tiny poinsettias for papercrafting and grab a couple of "stems" from the floral dept; i've used both kinds interchangably...can you tell which are the cheapies?? (no, nor could i, even when the cards were in my hands!) :)

by the way, may i extend all of the greetings on the cards to everyone reading, whether or not you are celebrating christmas on saturday? i wish you joy, love, peace and a disproportionally large serving of merriment, darlings!!
