  1. Cute! I used the same cartridge for my attempt at making cards. I just started making cards, if I run out of time some peeps will get store bought. Really I just started, I just got a cricut a couple of weeks ago. You can check out a few that I made and posted on my new blog:

    I will make another one for the contest, thanks for the chance to winQ


  2. Fun card! I have not started making cards yet myself. We normally send photo cards, but I'm debating making cards this year. I guess we'll see how soon I find the motivation and can decide on a design! :-)

  3. love the card. this is my favorite cartridge.

  4. I am sooo far behind on my Christmas cards. Having a baby and making all the birth announcements and thank you cards really set me back. i need some inspiration!

  5. Laurie this is DARLING! I LOVE that reindeer!! - Was he from Winter Wonderland? I see it listed.. I MUST peek.. I have that one.. gathering dust.. must check! :)
    Have a GREAT day!

  6. Super cute card!! I've also only started a few Christmas cards, and I'm making ornaments also, so I better get off here & get crackin! Thanks!

  7. Yes as usual I am behind at getting my cards out or getting them made. I have a few done, but will start working on them more often now. Thank you so much for the chance to win Disney cuttlebug---TFS-----Nancy

  9. Cute card. I plan on making my cards this year. I have already made a few samples. A few of u swill be getting together Dec 4th to get some made.

  10. Cute card! I am planning to make some cards but we will see how it goes. It seems like I always have good intentions then run out of time. I am also a fused glass artist (when I am not at my full time "real" job) so I am in the big push to get some holiday gift items produced for the consignment shop where I sell my glass work. Laurie, your cards are always great inspiration.

  11. Such a cute little reindeer! I entered and linked! ;o)

  12. I ususally send holiday cards but this year we have friends that own a "filmstrip" style photobooth and they offered to take some family pics for us.....serious ones and silly ones! So I think I'm off the hook this year for creating my own!

  13. I was at a weekend retreat with my sister last week and I made 75 Christmas cards!!! I just have to write in them and put them in to the envelopes now!! Maybe this weekend in front of a good movie!

  14. gorgeous reindeer! And let's face it, everything looks good on blue! I love his darling little face! I'm a new follower and look forward to seeing more of your projects!

  15. I usually send out a picture postcard of us to people we don't normally see a lot through the year. This year we moved to a new neighborhood with very few neighbors so i decided to make some treat Box Cards to give them. I am new to the blogging world and am looking forward to following along, awaiting my cricut for Christmas! It's killing me to wait!!!!!!
