41 days until Christmas? How is this possible?

Once Halloween comes, the time seems to fly by don't you think? I have my Christmas cards all done and I have even started addressing them. I need to do the "family letter" for out of towners so I will start on that soon. Today I made a couple of cards. I don't think I have stamped at all since Chelsea left! LOL I found this bella stamp when Chelsea was here and I colored it 2 different ways. In the first photo, I colored it with my new Koh-I-Noor woodless pencils. I love these pencils, they just go on like butter. I then blended the color with Gamsol. I also sponged the background with a little green ink. I bought some sponges at the $1 store - I saw that on someone's blog. They work great!! On the 2nd card, I used my Copic markers. I also used this "new to me" glitter pen that Chelsea told me I had to get and I'm so glad I did. Its a Gelly Roll Clear Star pen. Love it!! So ... do you like the 2 cards I made?

I have been busy making Christmas gifts and as cute as they all are, I can't post them for fear that those people read my blog and then the secret will be out!! And we can't have that, can we? I am making quite a few things this year and I really like how they are all coming out. I've made 4 different things so far and I think I am just about done so you may have to wait until AFTER the holidays for me to post them so I don't ruin the surprises :). You understand don't you?
