merry christmas to all, and to all a good night!

Christmas is almost over! it comes so fast, and leaves the same way!
i hope all of you were able to enjoy some quality family time, happy memories and good food too, perhaps!! :)

my parents are up visiting from florida and we're having an awesome time! to add to our own personal little griswald christmas, my husband's parents and brother are flying in from california and michigan (respectivly) tonight!! bring on the madness! lol!!

anyway, my parents needed two cards for the visiting 'menn' so i made these two little cards is record time!! and they're still sort of cute! i guess i don't need to agonize over every choice of every color, stamp, embellishment, etc! :) ha ha!!

here's the first card i made, which i'm also entering in the simon says stamp challenge: bling it on! :)

this is almost a one layer card - what? it's not though, so whew! i thought i was really overloading on the christmas cheer for a minute!!

the stamps i used are from the mama elephant stamp set: winter wonderland! SUCH a pretty set!

it was all stamped in some wet cement hero arts ink and then i added a free cut snow bank from my glitter tape. then i used the same glitter tape and my circle punch to add the 'glistening' snow!! :) the grey snow was also colored with my wink of stella pen! lots of glitter and lots of bling, right?

the next card was created just for fun for my brother in law, who, admittedly is, a cool dude!

i just paper pieced the snow man from paper smooches freezy fellas and popped him up over some layered washi tape! easy! and super fun!

i hope you're all having a VERY merry Christmas!! 
i can't wait to hear if you got any crafty goodies in your stocking! ha ha!
