Mini Christmas Cards

I have been such a bad blogger that I don't even know where to begin. Unfortunately bad blogging isn't the only area I am falling short on lately. I really have not created ANYTHING. The only exception being this little set of cards and I'm not finished with the box I am putting together to package them in. The tutorial I was using was off on the measurements so the lid is way too big. That may not bother some but it will drive me crazy. Very frustrating. Rather than not continue to neglect my blog, I chose to share the cards anyway.............

The stamps I used is my brand new set from PaperTrey Ink called 2008 Holiday Tags. I absolutely love this set and it has been so much fun to work with. The 15th of each month PTI releases all of their new sets, ribbons, papers etc for the month. With that date looming ever closer, I realized I would never be able to justify ordering another new set if I didn't ink up one of the two sets I had purchased in October..................

If you haven't guessed by my silence as of late, I have been working full time since last week. Just so happens that is also when my hubby left for a few weeks. Soooooo between working all day and not having the extra help, I really haven't had much opportunity to get into my "Studio ;o) I am sure hoping that I am not overwhelmed with the feeling of a dirty house tomorrow, I NEED to unleash some creative energy, although I am not sure I have any at the moment.

Check back with me because I am determined I WILL COMPLETE SOME PROJECTS WORTHY OF SHARING (wish me luck). Thanks so much for checking in on me today

(ALL THAT BEING SAID, I have the COMPLETED project to SHARE. This computer has taken on a mind of it's own and try as I might, I could not get the original image to load. I think this was worth the wait)

Bad blogger????? Hey, these little cards were well worth the wait not that I was waiting or anything. I really love these! These sure made my day. I am sure the box will be just as marvelous! Thanks for taking the time to show us!
