I have a lot to tell you about………….

First of all, I finished my Pazzles Design Team Project and got in the email on Wednesday! I was anxious to play with my new software program for my Pazzles Inspiration that I received on Monday….it’s the new Funtime 2009 and I love it! Needless to say, I spent Thursday playing with it and then yesterday I pretty much spent the day designing cutter files and designing this Christmas card for my youngest son and his family.

The beautiful glittered snowflake is a design by Monica, aka/Silene at the UK Scrappers site! I designed the twig/branch file and the bells using my new software. I made the “holly” paper piecing file using clipart from the Graphics Factory. I just signed up with them for a year. You can download all kinds of neat clipart! The upper left twig was punched using my Martha Stewart punch, but the others were from my design and were cut using my Pazzles Inspiration. I used four layers of embossing powder on the snowflake. I used liquid appliqué for the red berries on the holly and then I used Glassy Accents to make them shiny. I used my computer and printer for the sentiment. This was another one of those cards that was very difficult to photograph. I used silver and gold mirror like card for the bells and that mirror card never photographs well!

Well, after being ill so much for the past two months, I now have my work cut out for me, as I’m way behind on making Christmas cards and don’t know if I will be able to catch up………but I’m going to try!!!

Sorry to hear you have been sick Pam. I hope you are well on the mend now. Your Christmas card is so beautiful- really like the bells you designed. If I don't talk to you between now and then, I wish you a Merry Christmas and a blessed time with your family.

Hi Pam,
I came to your blog from MrsDB's (My Inspirational Journey). What a pretty blog you have!
I struggle with photographing mirror board too, but I love using it in the Cuttlebug and it seems to photograph better then.
Love the card though - it's nice to see green with white for Christmas - a very fresh look!

Quick question. Why did you chose the Graphic Factory for you clip art. I just purchased the new Funtime software and was wondering if that would be another good investment? Thanks
Could you email me please
