Christmas and Valentine's...all in one post! Hey, the retail stores can do it, why can't I?? LOL :):):):)

Hi everyone :):):):):)

I wanted to scrap Brookie's Santa picture, but never got around to it in December, so I decided to do it now :):):):):)

I used Nikki Sivils Gingerbread Land on my layout! :) I always love love love Nikki's Christmas lines! :):):):)








And I also wanted to share today that through Leintje I found a woman named Winter that is hosting a Valentine's Card Drive benefiting Children's Hospitals!!! :):):):):):) I just LOVED this idea and got right on it! I made 32 cards for the kids on Sunday Morning...and they went out in the mailbox on Monday! :):):):) And Winter is having prize drawings for people that contribute too! I didn't really need that is an incentive...I just wanted the kids to have Valentine's Cards... but that is still really sweet of Winter to offer to people as an incentive for participating :):):):):):):):):):):)

If you would like to participate in this AMAZING cause... go see Winter's blog post all about it :):):):):):):):):):)














And keeping with my mantra this year of using up A LOT of my scrappy stash when I cleaned out my scrappy closet space ;) I used ALL stash for these cards!! I used Nikki Sivils Sugar Cookie line and SEI's papers for all of these! :):):):):):):):)



Thanks so much for stopping by! I appreciate it! :):):)

  6. You made 32 cards in one morning and I've set myself a goal to make 12 cards this year! Maybe I need to reconsider my goal. Such a great cause and a Valentines day card actually sounds like fun. I LOVE the Nikki Gingerbread house line and I just love, love, love that base paper you used. I must get some!

  7. Julie, I can't believe you made all these cards! I guess I'd have taken about two months to make an amount like that, hehee! But they're all beautiful of course!

    Love the page too, I gave a lalallopsy doll to Bibi on Christmas, I'm not sure she like that, though :D :D

  9. Cute Nikki papers, and your model is as adorable as ever :) The LO turned out super fun.

    Woot woot for using up old stash AND putting it to good use! Your valentines are really sweet. As usual, I am amazed at your ability to create quickly. My new theory is that Edward Cullen turned you into a vampire ;) Your fast and you really don't sleep lol.
