I just wanted to wish everyone Happy Holidays. I had a great time for Christmas. I got everything that I wanted and then some. Now I look forward to the New Year. I usually don't make New Years Resolutions but here is one that I will try to keep. I'm now making a big one so I hope to keep it. I'm going to try to make 52 cards and 52 layouts. So I pray that everyone had a wonderful Christmas and that you will have a blessed new year.

I just finished making these two using Design Studio and my Cricut. In the penguin card the center penguins are popped out. This card my DS asked me to make for a friend that loves penguins. The snowman card has a free standing front. The snowman swings open. When I make this card again I will edit it by also attaching the front not only by the snow on the bottom but also up higher by a snow flake.
