My Besties Christmas Cards

Hi everybody!

Are you as busy as I am??  By the time I finish decorating the house, Christmas will be over and I certainly won't be taking it down right after New Year's if that's the case lol.  The tree is finished, although it doesn't have a tree skirt because Megan, the cat, likes to lay on the tree skirt and mess with the tree but I learned yesterday that she doesn't want to lay on the concrete floor so now I don't have to worry about her messing with the tree.  I have several glass ornaments and they shatter big time when they hit the concrete floor.  I'm used to having carpet. 

I have a question, do you like these crafty blogs to be about crafty topics only or do you like a little personal info as well, such as pictures of my Christmas tree, etc.  Just curious. 

I'm finally getting around to making cards using the Besties images I colored.  I'm making the Besties cards for close family and/or my card making friends who will appreciate them.  Well, let me ask you this..... does it matter to you if you make a card for someone and they don't say anything or act like they appreciate it?  It does bother me but some people say you should just make your cards for yourself because it makes you happy.  Well, it does make me happy to make cards BUT a thank you or oh that is so pretty would be nice, that's all I'm saying.  I don't expect them to do cartwheels and shout it out to the world.  Anyway, just wondering how you feel about this.  Hope you like my cards.

Do you think I went overboard with the green and polka dots?  I never hardly use green so I have no idea what got into me today.  :)

Here's a link to the My Besties Store online and Sherri Baldy's Etsy Store.  

I used copics to color.  Would anyone be interested in knowing what color copics I use when I post these images?  I used the Martha Stewart punch for the greenery by the greeting.  I love that punch!  I used Carta Bella paper called Merry & Bright.  The greeting is from Gina K Designs from a set called Joyful Holiday.  

I love this image.  I think it is so cute!  Here is a link to the image, Snowman and Bestie. 

Sometimes I like to make Christmas cards in non-traditional colors such as the red and blue colors.  I still think the colors look wintery and festive.  I used copics to color and some stickles on the snow in Crystal color.  

I hope you liked my cards and I hope the recipient does as well.  :) 

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!
