The 2012 Family Christmas Card ~ "Pin-Spired" Day #12


Ahhhhhh...that's how I feel each year when my Christmas cards hit the mailbox!  Every year I try and come up with some little twist for our family card.  This year I decided to make a big pocket for our newsletter.  I used the "Joy" die cut and the Folk Art Flurries stamp set by WPlus9 Design Studio.  And I MUST add that the snowflake design on my card was totally inspired (if not completely CASE'd) from Maureen Merritt's card.  As soon as I saw her card, I went and bought all of the supplies so I could make the card!



And our yearly newsletter is tucked inside ~ {I'll share that tomorrow}


and here is the whole stack of them {70 to be exact}
ready to be stuffed inside the cool matching envelopes
that I found at Office Max ~ SCORE!!!


 My project today was "Pin-spired" by this Pin
{just click on the photo for the link}





Today I have two returning "Pin-spired" friends joining me ~ Vicki Garrett & Daisy Sparks and one new friend ~ Deb Felts.
  So hop on over to their blogs and see what they came up with for their "Pin-spired" projects! 

Don't forget ~ Weekly Blog Candy!  Each Friday evening I will be drawing a random comment from my blog to give away some cool blog candy.  You may leave as many comments as you'd like each week.  Then at the end of my "Pin-Spired" Celebration, I'll have more prizes to share with more lucky winners!
  

Blog Candy Rules:  Comments that I deem unkind or look like spam will be deleted.  Winners will be posted on my blog each Saturday and must send me an email with your contact information.  Deadline for final blog candy drawing will be midnight (ET) on December 21, 2012.  If you fail to provide contact information to me by December 31, 2012, prizes will be forfeited.

See you tomorrow for more "Pin-spired" fun and happy 12.12.12!!!

Love it, Kendra! Really festive. And I'm so impressed with the massive stack of completed cards! Wowsers!

Also, I received my lovely blog candy package in the mail. I love the ribbons! and the Stamp set is super fun. Thank you so much. I'll send you a proper thank you once I can see daylight. Lots of company/activity right now...and I'm re-organizing my studio...can't even find my desk. LOL!

ShaZAM! I am really starting to feel inadequate here! The newsletter was such a great idea...I would've just folded it up and put in envelope. I would've never THOUGHT of a POCKET for it! You are on FIRE woman!
