A time for giving

For these Christmas cards, I dug out my Birthday Whimsy stamp set. I was over at AC's house the other day helping her get her cards ready for our card club next week, and we started talking about all the "stuff "we have that we have never used. So, we decided to start using our stuff instead of always buying more stuff-we'll see how that goes! Anyway, I thought I'd begin with this set. I really like it, and forget I even have it. Christmas is a time for giving and we received the biggest gift of all- our Savior! I thought the gift stamp would be great for a Christmas card. I added dimensionals to the middle kiwi kiss present to make it stand out. You can't tell from the photo very well, but I used stickles on the presents,too. By the way, AC's fall card turned out great, I can't wait to post it next week!

Those look great! The bottom one is my favorite...I love that scallop circle punched out. Great cards! And good luck continuing to use things instead of purchasing more...my husband probably wishes I'd join you in that commitment.
