SO Much Talent!

I am totally surrounded by talent when the gals come to my home to stamp. Their talent never ceases to amaze me! Thursday evening Leah was working on her Christmas cards. Oh and did I ever tell you how smart these gals are too? Starting their Christmas cards now!!!! VERY smart!!! She used the Stampin' Up! "Petals-A-Plenty" folder on the white background and the "Ornament Punch" on her bulbs. I do not know where the decorative paper came from but I think she said it was from one of those big packages of paper at Michaels. It's SO pretty and absolutely perfect for the card! She wasn't real thrilled with the bulbs so Ann told her to try adding the bulb cut card stock behind them and that was exactly what the card needed. She had two different pieces of decorative paper and used the other one to make the same card. I think both of them are great.

The words were done using the Merry Christmas from the "Teeny Tiny Wishes" set. After stamping the words she punched it out with an oval punch and then used the oval scallop punch on red card stock and layered it.

I wish I would have taken a picture of the envelopes she did. She used the red and green ink and a bulb from the "Delightful Decorations" set. It was just stunning! I told you I am with some pretty talented gals, didn't I? Aren't these just wonderful Christmas cards? I always feel so fortunate to be amongst such wonderfully talented people!

Thank you Leah for allowing me to share your wonderful creations.

And thank you all for visiting my blog today,
