xmas fave five

debby at scrapjourney--a cool and new-to-me papercrafting site i discovered this week--is having a blog candy draw for which the entry is a post listing my top five christmas cards that i made this year. so here they are in no particular order:

it's's's got my fave TH reindeer die used on recycled soda cans!

not so pink...but still layery and reindeer-based...this time i gussied him up with some snowflake rub ons (to hide a few imperfections in my flattened can!)

blue again...with a fancy compound flower + snowflakes embellishment...on a transparency base

this one might be my most fave: i used a sketchy thursday sketch as my scheme...and so it's MUCH more sophisticated than i'd've thought up on my own!

and we've come full circle to pink again...on a hambly transparency...with ancient KI memories letters that had to be sewn on because they weren't sticky enough any more!

proud as i am of ALL of the moment my MOST favorite holiday card is the one i made for the very first JINGLE BELLES prompt that debuts this saturday, january first! i hope you'll drop by then and see it...and maybe you'll like to join us in our mission to make our 2011 holiday cards doing one a week??! (did i mention there's going to be a bit of a giveaway during january??!?!)

hope to see you saturday, darlings!!!


  1. Oh, so cool and wonderful reindeer - can't believe they are made from soda pop cans! Love the other cards, too, just so fun!

  2. WOW. I love all of these. (DUH, Lauren made them.) I don't think I made 5 cards this year. LOL.
