Christmas Wishes

First day of December! WOW! I can't believe it! I am not sure I am ready! Only 15 days of school until Christmas Vacation (oh movie flashing through my head)! Being December it is time for Christmas cards!!!!! I love making Christmas cards! It is what got me started stamping!!!!! I wanted to make my own Christmas cards. This is my third year making my own! The first year I think back and um YIKES! I have come soooooooo far! That first year I made 30 of the same card and I had to sell the stamp set cause I could no longer stand it! So I learned my mistake! Now I make no more than 8 of a design! This year I am at 6 designs so far! Four of them are completely done! Two are cut but still need stamped and assembled. Of course I make some individual designs here and there! Here is the first of my cards for this year! I started with a red base PTI's Pure Poppy to be exact! When I got my order in November I hadn't ordered for a LOOOONG time and had to catch up on several colors of cs! When I saw the PTI Pure Poppy and Ripe Avacado together...OMGosh! I KNEW it would be used in at least one of my Christmas cards this year! Sorry if you get tired of seeing it! So the red base then layered with Ripe Avacado. The top note is in kraft. I stamped the pine image from SU's Peaceful Wishes, twice on it in white craft in from SU and embossed it with white EP. I added a bow made from PTI's Pure Poppy double stitched ribbon - it is my FAVE ribbon from them! I then stamped Christmas Wishes in Ripe Avacado from PTI's Believe set in the corner! Simple but nice! So there you have it! Card one! Be sure to come back for more!



  1. This is so pretty! I love those PTI colors together! Very rich!

  2. How pretty! I love the way the top note die looks on this. I think I'll get that die too.

  3. Love it! I love that craft paper with the sentiment. It also has a "leathery" look.


Thank you so much for leaving me a comment! It makes my day!

Who is the Krafty Mama?

Hi I'm the Krafty one! :) I'm the Queen to 2 little knights and a sweet princess. I married my knight in shining armor (kevlar) over 8 years ago and I am a REAL mom, wife and substitute teacher trying to be the best I can be! I love "krafting" but tend to buy more supplies than I actually use. I love make up, nail polish, hair products and fashion but have been known to leave the house in sweats a messy bun and no make up! I love to cook and bake but am guilty of feeding my kids McDonalds in a pinch. I love direct sales and have joined too many to mention! I would love to get to know you!
