Non-Christmas Cards This Time

Good Morning Folks! I created these cards last night watching a DVD last night. When I craft, I always take the opportunity to watch television. It's the only time I have the time to do so. Watching TV while crafting also keeps me from getting bored. I get bored easily especially when I'm sitting down. The papers I used to create this card is by K&Co. The flower images are by Stampin Up and the sentiment is by Studio G. The card is basically a whole lot of cutting and layering! It was fun making this card.

Yesterday was a busy day again. We went shopping at Costco and bought a few Christmas decorations. I'm going back today after I blog because there are a few more items I want to get. They have really pretty Christmas decorations.

We did a little bit of Christmas decorating yesterday afternoon. We're doing little by little each day. Last year we did everything in one day and I was too tired afterwards to appreciate all the decorations.

I love striped paper. I use striped designer paper all the time. I love it because it doesn't take away from the image. Sometimes when the paper is too pretty, it can distract from the message or the primary image. I find that stripe paper doesn't distract but compliments a design or primary image.

The papers are from K&Co and images are by SU.
