update and Xmas card

Hello all!  So sorry for being MIA.  I have been avoiding lengthy write ups on the computer because of an eye injury (or should I say a painful eye?).  I am heading to the optometrist tomorrow for an in depth look at my eye.  Initially I thought it was the onset of a migraine but it has been lasting for at least 4+ days now and is getting worse along with symptoms of nausea and dizziness.  I am ok if I am laying down but don't last too long moving around or exposed to bright lights.  I will keep you updated once I know what is going on.

So I am going to be brief today and share another one of my Christmas cards with you (remember I am creating them year round) as I may be taking a few more days off from long computer times.One thing I wanted to share is that I am LOVING my silhouette.  I couldn't resist sharing some cards using the die cuts too.

1. Create card base.  Stamp lower part of the card.
2. Create layers and snowflake die cut .
3. Punch border. Stamp sentiment.
4. Adhere layer, button and ribbon.

Stamp Set(s): sentiment and dots from Communique Curves by PTI, Tin Types by PTI
Cardstock: Vintage Cream bu PTI, Hawaii Shores by PTI, Kraft by PTI
Patterned Paper: Cosmo Cricket
Ink: Dark Chocolate by PTI
Accent: Snowflake from Silhouette die cutting system, button by PTI, ribbon by PTI
Tool: Punch by Martha Stewart

Have a super day!

Adorable Christmas card! I love the use of Hawaiian Shores, very non-traditional but perfectly lovely! I really enjoy your posts and have missed them lately. I hope you start feeling better soon, and I will keep you in my thoughts!
