So I think I have my yearly Christmas card!!!! I made the one below first and I liked it but it needed something to make it more vibrant. I made the card on top second, adding red paper to give a border and now I think I have my card for sending to family. The card below has pearls but for sending to people I will add stickle berries like the one above. Not sure what I am going to do for the sentiment. Below I stamped it and above I used a sticker. To make the snow I used a snow writer that I purchased at Michaels. I used Memory Box dies to cut the pine branch and the pine cones. I got the card idea from the Memory Box blog but I used a different pine branch die.
It is almost Halloween and it is miraculously still warm. Some years we have snow by now. So this photo is definitely a rare one for this time of year!!!!!

It says 60 sucks on both sides. A cute craft that can be modified and used for any age.
I want to give a birthday shout out to my mom because she is amazing! She has done so much to help me since I gave birth to my son. She is the best grandma, always willing to babysit and spoil him with goodies. She buys him clothes and books, which I cannot do because I am not working. I know she is a true grandma at heart because she keeps goldfish and snacks in her purse so my son can find them! We had a well deserved day at the spa, a nice dinner, and a wonderful brunch in her honor. Happy 60th Birthday Mom!!!
Hope everyone enjoyed the long weekend!

I took strips of cheesecloth and mod podged them onto the jar. I glued on googly eyes and there it is! So easy!

I used the Bella Blvd. Christmas line to make both the card and the layout. I added some stickles to the card and a little bow.
