Amy Butler is my hero.

yay! yummy snowflakes, rhinestones, pearls, and ribbon...

okay, remember back to THIS post about my "non-traditional" Christmas cards? i'm posting the other cards i made with the wonderful Amy Butler paper... i think the card below is the closest out of all of them to a real Christmas color scheme, but paper crafting is all about trying something new and different, right?

i really love the satin ribbon... ahh, such great bows! :D

well, today is busy busy busy for me... i'm coaching a swim meet today starting at 3pm, then going to a stamp night (i miss the first part, but get there later :D), then spending the night with a friend before going to church the next morning. whew, do i have a lot to pack for!

oh, and i also got some coupons for frames that are SUPER cheap, just TODAY, and i'm going to be using frames for Christmas gifts this year... so i may have to fit in some shopping, too... hehe. wow.

anyway, thanks for looking, and let me know what you're thinking of this round of cards :D
