christmas in the heart

Happy Monday to all who are visiting the charmed life blog today. The day really seemed to get away from me and I didn't accomplish all that I wanted to.
I need to finish my Christmas cards and get them addressed and mailed. My goal is to work diligently on them tomorrow before I head out to my son's to meet the boys school bus.

On another note. I added 5 new blog buttons. I had them designed by Leelou-the woman who designed the blog template. The new buttons are "about me, blog archive, my splitcoaststampers gallery, email me, labels".
What do you think?

So for today's post I am showing one of my Christmas cards. What else this time of year, you may be thinking.
I bought these super cute die cuts at a rubber stamp show that I went to this summer here in Pittsburgh. The penguin and the christmas tree are the die-cuts. The sentiment is also a die-cut. They are from darcie's stamps. They are called u-cuts because you have to cut them out.
I thought they would make a great kids card.
There is no stamping on this card but lots of cutting. The layout is the sketch 242 from splitcoaststampers.

Anyway, my dp paper is from memory box- farmers market collection and bo-bunny holly jolly stripes. I really like how the colors co-ordinate. I didn't realize until I uploaded my card that it was 2 different companies- lol.

card recipe:
paper: gp white, farmers market collection (memory box), holly jolly stripes (bo-bunny)
accessories: darcie's die-cuts
