Remember Yesterday?

When I said I had made some holiday cards? Well, I actually made a few, but I don't know if any of these are up-to-snuff for mass production. Sometimes, though, creating just for the sake of creating, is good for the soul. I am now in the mood to get the latest PaperCrafts special magazine. I saw it at the store the other day and I'm pretty sure it was whispering to me, "Take me home!"

The Ho Ho's and Holiday Blessings/October Avocado Arts stamp set has some great fall and winter images. Being the simple gal that I am, I went super easy and made hanging ornaments. I jazzed them up a bit with glitter but no fancy tricks, really, except to use some non-traditional colors. Simple, easy, fast!

I really wanted a card with holiday lights but I don't have any. But, with some creative omitting, I got it. I used the same ornament image but just used a marker to ink the inner part and I used the basket image from Zip N By to Say Hi/August Avocado Arts set to assemble my "lights." In retrospect, I probably should have used green for the strand as well as the lightbulb socket, but it was late and I wasn't looking for perfection. I do like it, though!

Guess what? I've got two more that I hope to share tomorrow, unless I can find time later today. Hope you can find time to stop by again soon!

Fun ornie cards! I love your fresh take on them - especially the blue and pink combo!
