Almost there...

There's something enjoyable about the "hustle and bustle" of this season when you know you're not in a rush, and can sit back and enjoy it all without the stress part getting in the way! Today I had to stand in line for 40 minutes at the post office, and it was okay.  All of us in line were laughing about it, and making small talk and jokes, and the time flew by until it was my turn at the window. The Christmas roast is ordered, and the logistics of getting everyone together for the day are finally starting to take shape. There's still a bit of decorating to finish around the house, but we'll make it in time to enjoy the season to its fullest.

Are you tired of Christmas cards yet? Hope are the last of the designs from the Korner for this year. :)

For this group, I used a Spellbinders snowflake die and embossed it directly to the front of a cream-colored card, added a small bit of course clear glitter accents, and changed the accent in the center for variety.

Next up, a fun reindeer card using the last grungeboard reindeer left in a set of Tim Holtz seasonal pieces from a couple years ago. The antlers are covered with bronze German glass glitter, and the patterned paper over the grungeboard is coated with Rock Candy Distress Crackle paint. Spellbinders' Labels Twenty-Two shape was embossed with a Cuttlebug Distressed Stripes embossing folder and accented with white acrylic paint around the edges. The "merry & bright" background paper is from My Minds Eye Lost & Found Christmas collection (6x6 size).

This card was made with Simple Stories 25 Days of Christmas papers, and a WRMK "Joy to the World" clear sentiment stamp. Spellbinders' Classic Postage Stamp Edgeabilities was used on the bottom edge.

On this last card, I combined Authentique Wonder collection patterned papers for the background, but pulled the "peace and joy" tag from Simple Stories 25 Days of Christmas collection and matted it onto a Spellbinders' Labels Eight die cut background for the sentiment.  The small reindeer was cut from Ranger Claudine Hellmuth adhesive canvas on lightweight chipboard using the Tim Holtz Mini Reindeer Movers & Shapers die.

Thanks for stopping by...I hope your week goes well and you have some time to stop and take in some of the fun parts of the holiday season!
