A Little bit of the holiday spirit!

It seems like my sparse posts have involved a lot of Christmas cards. Well, there is a reason for this. I do this raining cards thing as part of a Magnolia group, and I have to use Magnolia images to make the cards. Since most of my Magnolias are just stamped images of Christmas or winter themed ones, these are what my cards turn out to be!

I did have fun playing with my nesties on this card. I couldn't wait to finally get my hands on the curved rectangles!! I love them, and they are perfect for making a card this size!! The image is Alva, who is just darling! I love the Magnolia stamps...maybe it is because they are super cute or from Sweden, I don't know!

Thanks for sticking by me in my seeming stamping rut! We are up to our eyeballs in getting estimates for a kitchen remodel, so my mind has been elsewhere. Luckily, I don't have to deal with my daughter going to kindergarten...that's next year! I'm slowly getting back into the swing of things!
