May Christmas Cards

First of all, does anyone know what is happening in blog land this time? I can't seem to leave a comment on anyone's blog which has google access. I've only heard of one other person having the same problem so far. It's so odd. I don't even know who to contact to resolve the issue. It started yesterday, and I thought it would just be resolved today, but it isn't.

Anyway, I can still post, so here are my May Christmas Cards which I finished on time this month! YAY! As most of you already know, I play the Christmas Card Challenge on Splitcoaststampers. I make 4 Christmas Cards a month so that I'll have about 50 cards by the end of the year. Here are my May cards:

The first three cards all use images from the JustRite set 'Christmas Ornaments'. The paper is Basic Grey 'Jovial Paper Pad'. The ornament and main circle panel are up on dimensionals. I put Gold Liquid Pearls on each scallop. The sentiment is embossed with a sparkly gold embossing powder. For this card, I used an old Midnight Madness Sketch (MMSC74). The paper is Basic Grey 'Eskimo Kisses'. The ornament and the sentiment are up on dimensionals and there is a silver adhesive sticker in the center of each snowflake.

This card uses paper from Cosmo Cricket 'Mitten Weather', and the sketch is JUGS18. The sentiment and the ornament are up on dimensionals.

And finally, my last Wink Wink Ink card you will see for awhile. Melanie, the owner of Wink Wink Ink has temporarily closed her store due to some personal issues that need to be taken care of. Hopefully, she'll re-open her store again soon. This card uses the image 'Season's Tweetings'. The paper is Cosmo Cricket 'Jolly by Golly'. The main image is mounted up on dimensionals. The snowflakes are felt cut outs from JoAnn's Fabrics and Crafts.

Have a great day! Amy


  1. WOWZER!! Amy, these are all really gorgeous Christmas designs!! Love your coloring and your pretty papers!! :)

  2. Hi Amy! Your cards are all beautiful - I love seeing the pretty Christmas papers and images, and your coloring is delightful! Thanks for sharing!

  3. By the way, it seems that lately I have issues with g-mail, google, and blogger every single morning. By noon or so, it seems to be cleared up. I'm so seriously thinking of going to another blog format, but so many times, with DT blogs and things, we must be compatible....sigh....hopefully Blogger will get it's act together!

  4. Oh boy, you've been a busy girl - these cards are GORGEOUS.

    So sad to hear of Melanie's store closing, though. :(

    Do you use IE 9? From what I've heard, people with that browser are having issues with blogger. Apparently they don't play nicely together. (If so, you might want to switch to Firefox or my humble opinion, they're much better browsers, anyway.)
