When that Christmas spirit hits

So last night was one of my daughter's 3rd grade Fall Concert. As soon as the concert was done, the Christmas lists were already being discussed. LOL Whatever happened to Thanksgiving? Well, since the kids were so inspired to talk about the "Big Guy" coming to town, I was inspired to make a quick and easy Christmas card.

As I've stated before, I'm not an elaborate scrapper or cardmaker. I'm the type of crafter that is all about quick and easy, but still looking put-together and pretty. For this cute card, I used hardly any papers and "extras". I used Close to My Heart's Workshops on the Go Believe Kit. In this kit, the featured colors are Holiday Red, Topiary, Sky and Sweet Leaf. In it you get:
  • Believe Level 2 Paper Packet
  • My Acrylix® Believe Workshop Stamp Set (C-size)
  • Mini-Medley Accents Olive Collection
  • Dimensional Elements Stars
  • Workshop Guide
With this one, simple kit, you could decorate and complete many of your Christmas cards. All you need are the staples and then little touches of "extra" here and there. By the way, the stamp set that goes with it is absolutely adorable and is great for cards, layouts and even Christmas tags. Isn't that Santa the cutest? For my extra, I popped up a present that I stamped and then added red colored stickles to the card. That's it. Like my kids like to say, easy peasy. LOL

Well there you go, a quick card done while my 3 year old is running around under my feet. If I can do it, you can do it. I hope this card inspires you to start thinking about your Holiday cards and gets you cardmaking and scrapping! God bless.

Don’t forget Close to My Heart’s November Specials too!

November stamp of the month:

Also, there is a Holiday Wishes stamp set that is only $5 with a $25 stamp purchase.

November 2011 Constant Campaign: Holiday Wishes

This set is just perfect for your layouts and especially for your cards. When you place a minimum order of $25 in My Acrylix® stamp set all through the month of November (until November 30th), you can purchase a new D-size Holiday Wishes stamp set for only $5! That’s a tremendous savings off the full retail value of $17.95 US / $19.95 CAN.

Also, if you think that sounds terrific, there’s a bonus as well! Many of the images in the sets coordinate with our Cricut® Art Philosophy cartridge for added cutting and stamping fun! How easy is that!
Okay, since I just threw a lot of info at you, let me summarize: 
*Spend $50 you get the November stamp of the month (retail price of $17.95) for $5.
*Spend $25 in stamps, you get the Holiday Wishes stamp set (retail price $17.95) for $5!
*These two offers CAN be combined. How awesome is that! So for example, if you spend $25 in stamps and an additional $25 on anything else in the catalog or online, you will get both stamp sets for a total of $10 ($5 per set). You save $25.90! Which means the stamps are almost paying for themselves! You can’t beat that!

***Just a Note***  You MUST add the discounted stamps to your shopping cart when prompted by the system DURING CHECKOUT. Stamps cannot be added after the sale is complete and finalized. Also, adding the stamps to your cart BEFORE being prompted by this system will result in being charged full price for promotional stamps

Here’s a look at the Cricut® Art Philosophy cartridge I was talking about:
