non-traditional Christmas

hmmmmm, yummy! have i mentioned i love satin ribbon before? it's just perfect. like, everything about it is perfect. it's bow-ability *yes, just made that word up* and it's elegance.

these cards basically remind me of my friend Paulina--very girly and sweet.

doesn't it look scrumptious on this non-traditional Christmas card? i love that pink, and it matches the Amy Butler paper so fabulously :D

loving the Martha Stewart snowflake punch. i bought it along with the other snowflake punch (you'll see it later) in the off-season Wal-Mart clearance isle for $4 (or was it $2?) either way... such a great deal! and the pearls and rhinestones are a fav too. definitely addicted--you'll be seeing LOTS of those coming up :D

here's another one--same layout, different papers/ ribbon. can you tell i'm gearing up for Christmas? this year i've been tossing around gift ideas, and i've come to the conclusion that almost everyone on my list will be getting a handmade gift--whether it's cards ('cuz Lord knows i have a HUGE stash to de-hoard), or framed paper art, or some type of cookies in a cute tin. we'll see... but i'm definitely planning.

do you have any lovely gift ideas that never fail to please? i'd love to hear about them. (oh, and i'd also love to know what you think about these cards :D) i'll be posting some other sweet cards later too... this layout was so simple and easy that i couldn't resist just using these papers 1x. plus, they were double sided, so i had to show you both options (: hehehe.

anyway, thanks for looking, and i hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend!
