Christmas Card Weeks 8&9

Yep... I've fallen behind!! But this post will catch me up with my Christmas Cards. I missed week 8 because I was out of town from Friday till late Sunday and I was too tired to care about posting my card. The I dealt with dead camera batteries... with no idea where my charger went. Yesterday I created my week 9 card and was able to photograph everything but the camera didn't have enough charge to upload to my computer. Today I went out with my daughter and we picked up some new batteries- although I'd rather use my rechargeables!!

Here are the two cards I made for weeks 8 & 9:

I'm not sure if I mentioned it- but I'm extremely sick of my Christmas stamps! I keep very few sets on hand for any given holiday and always sell those that retire so that I can limit how many stamps I have (even though I still have well over 100 sets even with selling all the retired sets!!) But seriously- I need new Christmas stamps NOW if I'm going to continue the weekly Christmas card feature - so hopefully soon you'll see some newer images featured weekly!

This card uses the following supplies:

{Supplies: White Daisy, New England Ivy and Vineyard Berry cardstock, Magic Moments patterned paper, Vineyard Berry ink, HOliday Joy stamp set and Seafoam Ribbon with a clear rhinestone on the top of the ribbon knot.}

Week 9:

{Supplies: Life Delights Paper Pack, Crystal Blue and White Daisy Cardstock, Crystal Blue ink, White Daisy Grosgrain Ribbon, January Word Puzzle and Feathery Flakes stamp sets, Clear Sparkles (self adhesive rhinestones}
Both cards were designed using paper from my scrap bin- the patterned paper on the snowflake card actually has flowers but for some reason it made me think of snowflakes- and that was about all I had left of that paper so using it helped deplete more scraps :)
I have a few more cards to share this week and I'm going to set them up to auto-post- otherwise you may not see them for another week. Things around the household are getting busy as we prepare for our new baby's arrival in approximately 2 months! Plus next weekend is my sister-in law's baby shower and I'm working on the centerpieces and favors so I'll be busy each night working on those!
Be back as soon as I can :)
