Christmas Minis

Good morning! This weekend I didn't get very much crafting done (I made one card for a challenge that I will post on Friday). Instead I spent Saturday shopping and then putting my daughter's new bed together (well new to her I bought it off Kijiji our local online classified ads for $50 plus $150 for a new mattress plus $18 for sheets and a new pillow at $5 for a total of $223 not bad) It's a captains bed with a bookshelf headboard and two drawers and two cupboards. I had to sell my dresser to make room for the bed as it is much bigger then her toddler bed she had, thank goodness it has the storage space so I was able to put my clothes in it. Now just to sell her old bed!! Anyways I have some mini Christmas cards that I made a few weeks ago, I made 3 of each for a total of 6.

What I Used:
Clear Dollar Stamps : Year Round Bitties
Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps : Primitive Christmas (sentiment)
Memento Ink: Tuxedo Black/Cottage Ivy/Rhubarb Stalk
Prismacolor Watercolor Pencils
Spellbinders Shapeabilities: Flower Creations Three
Cuttlebug Embossing Folders: Snowflakes/Candy Cane Strips

These cards measure at 2 3/4 x 2 3/4, I was able to cut 3 cards out of one piece of 8 1/2 x 11 card stock. I wanted them to have the same design but different elements. I will probably be using these for the daycare mom's presents.

I will be posting a card on Wednesday but it will be a scheduled post as I will be leaving before 7a.m for the hospital for my daughter's surgery. Please keep us in prayer (she has had the surgery 3 other times but she is now older and more aware of what is going on plus it is a different hospital same doctor). For those of you who had read my post about what is going on my daughter has to have her 4th set of tubes placed in her ears, praying this set works as everytime she gets an ear infection she looses hearing!!

Have a Great Day!

God Bless!
