*F*I*N*A*L*L*Y a new post!!!

I'm so sorry it's taken more than 6 weeks to come back to this blog. A lot has been going on, but excuses aren't what you're here for, so without further adieu . . . .

Here's the Christmas card from the Christmas Cards in the Mail kit:

This card was "cased" from one of my monthly scrapbooking magazines and altered just a tad. The base of the card is made from creamy caramel, cut from an altered template of the cased card. I used the slit punch to create the scallops, the 1/2" circle punch for the red gumdrops, and the 3/4" circle punch for the center peppermint. Red gingham ribbon ties the card closed.

I'm preparing information on Round 3 of my Stamps in the Mail program, so come back for more details. By the way, the *N*E*W* Stampin' Up Spring/Summer collection is coming out SOON! If you'd like to preorder your copy, please post a comment here with your email address & I'll paypal you an invoice for $10. That includes shipping it to you. All books prepaid by December 20th will be received by the first week of January.
