today is a BIG day - for several reasons - 1st: it is my daughters 12th birthday...
she is 12 on 12 - 12 - 12 -
2nd: we will never see a date like this for another 100 years --- spectacular right?
Here is my sweet girl
taken today! 
We had a wonderful day celebrating with her!

also wanted to share our Christmas cards for this year.
I found a cool card in the nov/dec paper crafts magazine and cased it.
A bit different but similar. I love me some simple and easy to make cards.
I had everything in my stash already - so no cost.

I used some fun holiday ribbon used a stamp I got in the dollar bin of Joanne's and a MS holly leaf punch. Those red berries are actually clear bling dots that I colored with my red copic marker. I am also including a photo of my kids in our kids this year.
Nice, complete and - look there - they match or coordinate - pretty cool!

Here's wishing your card making and sending is going smoothly.
I am linking up my cards to the following challenges:
sweet stampin Christmas-- anything Christmas
crafting for all seasons - green, red, glitter, sparkle
the perfect sentiment - must have sentiment on front/ xmas
anything goes challenge - traditional Christmas colors
clear it out - Christmas or red & green
top tip Tuesday - Christmas
