Star bright...

first star they saw that night
I am aware that this love is for me
and the greatest of gifts is free...

Good morning friends... only nine more days until Christmas, are you ready for it?
Christmas prep is moving right along in the ol' casa de Amy and I'm hoping to have a baking day this weekend 'cause I've got lots of goodies to make like chocolate malt cookies, cut out cookies jello popcorn balls... all for gift trays of course (though I might sneak one or two for myself, yum yum!) ;)

So I was able to use another Gorjuss Girl on my card today (man I wish Sugar Nellie would add some new ones to the line, they are so cute) as well as this cool sentiment stamp that is practically a focal point all on its own. And I was so proud of myself for pulling out the ol' Slice machine and putting it to use to make some die-cut flourishes... I really need to make the time to use that thing more, LOL!

Well I should go get ready for the day, smooches! :)

paper- Pink Paislee (Mistletoe)

Beautiful card, Amy! Maybe you and I should start a electronic die cutting machine support group (for people who have them and need to get more use out of them!) I am getting several Cricut cartridges for Christmas (picked out myself at Joann's big Black Friday sale and then wrapped by my DH!) so I really need to make use of them! :-)Traci

I agree, we need more Gorjuss Girls! I love to use them, and actually - I just made two cards with them, one with the same image as you did here... ;o)
