Christmas Card Swap

On October 23 I am hosting a Christmas Card Swap, kinda like a cookie exchange.  There will be about 20 gals gathering to make Christmas cards, eat, chat, and just have fun in general.  I have prizes and challenges to go on.  There will also be a Stampin UP! demonstrator there as well.  I can't wait!  
So here are a couple of my example to show the gals to help get there creative juices flowing. 

 This card I used a heart punch to make the wreath, some ribbon and a hand written sentiment.  That part didn't turn out so well cause I used textured paper.
 This is my non traditional card.  I love to used non Christmas colors on my Christmas card.  The sentiment is from Close to my Heart, as are the snow flakes. Really all product is.  I added a little BLING on the snowflakes to give them a little dimension.

Last but not least.  And definitely not last on my list of too do's.   This I think is my fave.  I stamped a couple of charistmas balls on to a sheet of paper then scanned them into my pc, so that I could resize them to fit my card.  Then stamps are both from CTMH as is the paper.  The border punch is from Martha Stewart.

Have an awesome night, and thanks for stopping in.
