Christmas cheer.....

I've been such a bad blogger lately so this post is full of this and that. First, I would like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! Christmas day can't get here soon enough for my kids. We still have some last minute shopping to do. I enjoy it though. My hubby and I have fun shopping for our munchkins. Our gifts will be wrapped with love and placed under our "evergreen" tree. :) I replaced our skinny tree with this one last year. The new one is beautiful! Well worth the $$!
I was able to get the kids still long enough to shoot some Christmas photos. I just used a cheap table cloth and my point and shoot camera to capture these. I used to edit them.

I had our Christmas cards printed at Wal-Mart this year. They had a better variety than Sams Club. I think they turned out pretty good. Considering, we bought seventy photo cards for $30.00. I was able to get three nice size photos on each card.
As some of you know, I'm a DT member for Zva Creative. Below are a couple projects I've created recently using their products. If you love pearls and bling. Zva Creative has a nice variety of styles and colors. You can find a list of supplies on their website.

Zva Creative Supplies used for snowman card: CR-02CB-101 (clear crystals) eyes; PE-02CB-110 (light blue pearls) hat; CR-01CB-109 (clear crystals) mouth; PEC-02CB-101 (large pearls) buttons; PE-02CB-127 ( pearl flourish) Snow swirls; FL-01CB-116 flower (white felt); pink gem brad

Zva Creative Supplies for owl card: CR-02CB-101 (green crystals); PE-02CB-132 (large flourish)

These projects are wonderful! Love the plaid snowman, and the use of white space with those pearls is striking. Thanks for sharing.
