Some cards to share!

If you are taking part in the myStampBox Blog hop, please scroll down to the next post down! :) Thank you!!

If not, thanks for stopping by anyway! :) I spent the morning creating today! I got 1 LO done, which I can't show you until the LCTS reveal tomorrow!! :) I also got 2 cards done and have another set of Barn Stars to show you from the other night! I kept these simple too... and am hoping to get the pics for a tutorial this weekend! :) Sorry to keep you waiting! :)

So, here are the cards! Now if you know me, you'll KNOW I'm not a card maker.. so be gentle with me! LOL! They are not bad. but I am so uncreative when it comes to them!!

For this first card I used some Bo Bunny papers, some Zva bling and a nice prima flower! I also used myStampBox stamps for the Merry Christmas! :) Love this repeated look! :) The set used in both cards is the Merry Mr Snowman set!

For my second card, I also dug into the myStampBox stamps! This time I stamped the snowman using a Sepia ink and cut him out! The Merry Christmas is from this set as well, and i heat embossed it in Gold.

And finally, my second set of barn stars... much like the first! Once again, using the MSB stamps. This time I opted for Green paper and a button for embellishing! Gotta pick up some more hemp tomorrow for the tie! :) I'm HOOKED on these things! I want to put them on cards, LO's, EVERYTHING! LOL!!!

Stay tuned for that tutorial!! It's coming soon, i promise! :)
Until then, I hope you are enjoying getting ready for the holidays!!
Happy Scrapping!

*********************** My PARTY Idea!! ***************************
Hostess Gift: Barn Star Ornament/gift tags

How many Christmas parties do you go to each year? Ever get ready to go out the door and say"Oops! I ment to have something to give the hostess!!" I do it ALL the time! Good intentions, right? Well, Here is a quick and simple project that you can make up in about 20 minutes that your host is sure to enjoy!!
Barn stars are all the rage this year! But did you know they are SUPER easy to make? I created this simple set of 3 in about 20 minutes!!
I used the Merry Mr Snowman MSB stamp set! I stamped the Merry Christmas sentiment all over the stars before cutting them out and folding them! What a beautiful rustic look it gave them! They can be used as Christmas tree ornaments, hung on a garland or used as tags on your beautifully wrapped gifts!

I hope these stars find their way onto your tree this holiday season! And just maybe take a set along to your next party as a little thank you gift for your hostess!!

Check back to my blog next week for a dressed up version and some detailed instructions on how to make your own!!

Would you like to win a set of these cute little stars made just for you, by me? If so, leave a comment and become a follower of my blog! I'll do the draw on Friday and one lucky gal will get a set of these for their own!! :)
