'Tis the season!

Hi all!! My posts have been sparse during this holiday season.  So much to do, and so little time to do it!  I am sure everyone knows what I am referring to.  I wanted to share with you another Christmas card I made.  We are one week away from celebrating Jesus' birth, and I honestly I am trying to get in the true meaning of what Christmas is, but it is being masked by having to tend with work, buying presents ( with lack of funds I might add), paying bills, etc.....I know they are all excuses, but I speak the truth! :)  Nonetheless, I have made several Christmas cards this year, and have sent some, and personally given some.  I think all that have received one is appreciative.  This one was given to my nail tech.  She does a great job tending to my nails every 2 to 3 weeks, and I wanted her card to be special.

The stamp I used and embossed in gold is from Hero Arts.  I added some gems to make the "strings" come alive, and added some self adhesive trim I purchased at Hobby Lobby a few months back.  She loved it! :)

Here are a couple of others I made and sent or gave to someone....

My hubby is always telling me that I should do cards during the holidays that are the same, that I don't always have to make different ones, but you know I did do that too, but I also want to give "special" ones too.  He is supportive either way it goes :)

Before I go, I wanted to share with you all that I received my Gina K. Designs cards back from the card swap I was involved in.  A month ago I share with you the cards I made, and now I wanted you to see what cards I received back.  The hostess gets to keep 1 card from each "spot" - so she kept 3 of mine since I signed up for 3 spots, and one of the cards is displayed at work.  It folds into a "Christmas Tree", so that one is not pictured, but here are the rest...

Ok - that is all from me this evening.  I will try to post once more before Christmas, but if I don't Merry Christmas to all my followers, and readers.  I appreciate you all, and interested in seeing my projects that I create.  All of YOU inspire ME!!  :)
