From my Secret Santa, Heather Bloom!

I hosted a Secret Santa swap with one of my Yahoo! ATC Groups and my Santa, Heather Bloom, sent me all these wonderful things! The idea was to share what you love and Heather was certainly generous. This is only half of what she sent...the rest is posted on my Halloween blog as she included a wonderful selection of Halloween items as well as she knows of my fondness for all things Halloween. Thank you Heather for this amazing treat! ((HUGS)) Kris

Created by Hand Challenge - Hanukkah
I have a custom order for Hanukkah cards from my next door neighbor and was thrilled to see that the challenge this week was Hanukkah. This is my first Hanukkah card I've ever made and I was please with how it turned out. Sure hope my neighbor likes it as well.

More Christmas Cards

These cards were made for a Stampin' Up! Christmas workshop I hosted this week. For a twist, I decided to use unconventional Christmas colors for the cards...I think they look pretty frosty. (All Stamps by SU!)
