"A few of my favorite things!"

I apologize for my inactivity, but I have been busy, busy, busy what with the holidays fast approaching. I have been stalking the Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge for a whlie now, but never had a really GREAT idea to put into a card. But this week the inspiration is from one of my most favorite movies of all time, "The Sound of Music". I can not put into words how much I adore this movie, my mom used to sing the songs to me ever since I was a little girl. So, it is without further ado, that I reveal a few of my favorite things...

"...brown paper packages tied up with strings..."

This was so quick and easy, but I think it turned out really sharp. I am really starting to use my stamps more effectively too, check out the fancy pants stripes I colored... :)

"...snowflakes that stay on my nose and eyelashes..."

I wasn't sure if it looked silly or simple, but the more I look at it, the more it grows on me, see thw glittery snowflakes, too cute!

and they land ever so lightly on the eyelashes...

I so enjoyed making these cards and they were SO easy!! There is just so much inspiration from that movie to put into some fun Christmas cards... And yes, I am still working on Christmas cards, I am making them for family and friends, and I really do love Christmas... Sigh... back to work!
