Christmas Inspiration and THANK YOU!

Hello!!! Happy Friday!

First of all....I want to say THANK YOU so much to all of you who commented on the Echo Park paper page on Facebook for me. I won a Cricut Expression because of all of you! I am so delighted to finally own one of these. To celebrate: fun blog candy will be coming soon. Just have to wait until I can get my hands on the fun new paper I want to include and then I will post it!

Here are two Christmas cards I created with Jillibean Soup. First, a Christmas tree: I used one of Jillibeans Green/Quartz star picks for the top of the tree (it is inserted between layers so that the pin part doesn't poke out.). I cut out the little flowers and attached them to the tree. I added some yellow rhinestones to coordinate with the pin. I also used a SRM holiday sticker on this one.

Next is my JOY card:
I used JB corrugated letters for the sentiment, painting them with white acrylic paint. I punched the snowflake and added some of the designer paper to the middle of it. I finished the card off with some stitching along the side panel.
Hope you have a GREAT weekend.
Thanks for stopping by!
