Merry & Bright -- featuring Spellbinders :)

Hi everyone :) 

I wanted to share my Christmas cards that I made this past Saturday night at a crop at my house :)

I first said to myself, "Self, this year let's go 'clean & simple' on the cards."

Myself agreed.

Myself thought, "Yep, we will get out the ornament shaped dies from Spellbinders, and this will be a BREEZE!"

Myself agreed.

Myself after cranking the Grand Caliber for the millionth time -- "Phew! Maybe 'Clean & Simple' -- is NOT so 'Simple' with dies!!"

LOL at Myself :)



I used Authentique's "Joyous" collection, Glitz "Hello December" collection, Bo Bunny's "Elf Magic" collection, "Me and My Big Ideas" goodies,  Basic Grey goodies, Echo Park goodies, Scraptastic Club Stamp, Pink Paislee goodies -- all from my stash ... and with that being said ... I am entering these in the latest challenge at "Clear it Out" Challenge Blog :) 






















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