Christmas Cards and my Crazy Friend

  My scrappy girlfriend Tracy and I have been busy these last couple of days making oodles of Christmas cards.  We've probably spent more than 24 hours combined on them, and if that wasn't enough......After another late night of crafting (I think she left around 11pm), Tracy went home an decided to spend the entire night coming up with a few more ideas for us to create.  She felt bad that we had been unable to make all the embossed cards I wanted to make when she was here, so this morning she came over with all the supplies and her designs to make these beauties:
 And these:
 I can't imagine how creative I would be by 6 am (when she finally quit to go to bed), but somehow this seems to be the time that she is most inspired.  So thanks to my crazy friend, I have a few more stunning cards to send to my friends and family this holiday season! (Only 30 more cards to go....sigh)


  She used the Big Shot and Cuttlebug folders to create the embossed images, and the cricut to cut everything else. The cardstock is a combination of Bassil and Close to My Heart.

Enjoy!
