First for this year

Yikes it is already May...where has the time gone.  I can't believe it, but I made my first Christmas card for 2012.  I actually made this card for one of my friends to give to her grandson since it will be his first Christmas. She is spending her time babysitting for him and talks about him ALL the time so I thought it would be a perfect gift for her.  I know she will appreciate it.  I also did a Kenny K card using an image from TLC create of a record and Bearly Mine paper which is perfect with the Rock Chick.  I also got this great ribbon from Ribbon Carousel with music notes and went through the center of the record that I cut with spellbinder circles.  I love all the tutorials that are out there on the Spellbinder blogs and the new dies that have come out and couldn't resist getting one.  I also used the Cherry Lynne small butterfly dies to put on top with this weeks Play Date Cafe colors.  My last card is a Bugaboo image with this weeks Splitcoast Sketch.
