Top 5

My top five reasons for loving Christmas time:

5. Making meaningful donations.
4. Seeing friends (and family) at holiday parties.
3. Indulging in delicious holiday fare.
2. Giving (and receiving) presents!
and my top reason:
1. Memories (past and future!)

I know I am a scrapbooker... but I seem to be making a lot of cards lately.  They are quick and fun and require no advance planning (i.e., printing pictures).  I can play with artsy techniques and clean up everything quickly.  So, for right now, cards it is!

Here is another one I made recently:

I used an old Hero Arts (and Basic Grey) stamp set for the poinsettia (had to look up the spelling on that one!) on watercolor paper with Tim Holtz Distress Paints - Festive Berries, Evergreen bough, Antique bronze... I added some gold stickles as the berries for some sparkle and tied the sentiments in by stamping with Versamark and then adding some gold "perfect pearl."

Hope you enjoy your top 5 this season!
