Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas Bloggers and Facebook Family, it's ridiculously early Christmas Morning, but I am still up with my usual insomnia, merrily stamping away the early morning hours, even procrastinating getting those last gifts wrapped and under the tree. Just a few more Christmas Cards to share: One more using Candlelight Christmas DSP, yep, I am still using the same half a pack I started with ( I think I am up to 12 so far, but I have seen one stamper who gets 35 from half a pack, I have some work to do, although I am still working at it)

The second card is my version of a Blue Christmas, or maybe even a white Christmas, which we will rarely have here in El Paso, don't get me wrong, I am not really a fan of the snow, If I could have a white Christmas and have it merrily melt away Christmas Night, that would be the perfect scene for me! Anywho, I digress, I got a little carried away with this blue Christmas card, a little too much going on here, I know... I started with and idea and just got carried away, trying to add dimension to it....  The good news is, I have some ideas using what did work and I will get rid of the rest... Live and learn right...

Now, off to get those last couple of gifts wrapped.. or.... maybe I will just stamp a few more cards... at least two of my three heathens are still up and digital, got stay up awfully late.. or is it early? to stay up past my kids to wrap those last few gifts..

It's Christmas Eve and the kids are all plugged in as usual, so I am happily stampin away while watching "A Christmas Carol" on the tube. I am so loving pinterest, I could spend all day on there getting inspiration for cards I will never create ;) I am still using my first half back of Candlelight Christmas DSP and loving all the inspiration I am finding. My craft room is a disaster and my sweats are all inky and glittery and there is nothing I would rather be doing, whilst my children are busy with their own passions except maybe spend some time with my special someone, who is out of town with family this week and so, this is the best "me time" I could ask for!

 All cards were created using Candlelight Christmas DSP, which of course, is available here. The top right is rolled DSP punched with various sized circle and scalloped circle punches, the top left is simply scalloped circle punches wrapped around a hand drawn tree, the quilt card to the left is a Top Note die and the bottom card was just a simple bunch of squares, all of these cards were inspired by others seen on pinterest.
