wishing you a joyful christmas...

Caardvarks...another challenge site that I've been behind on....I had to join in on the fun for their latest challenge:

Some of you Target fans might recognize the glitter snowflake..oh wait, aren't we ALL Target fans? Anyways, I picked up a couple bunches of the snowflake ornaments last year at Christmas. The paper and epoxy embellies are Basic Grey Eskimo Kisses...sheesh, I love that name...just makes me chuckle. The snowflake epoxy sticker is stacked on top of a button for a little more omph..or is that a little more postage...more on that later.

Check out my latest happy mail...all the way from Croatia!!!!

These have got to be thee most darling fimo buttons...Thanks Jane!!!!

{speaking of Jane, the girl is on FIRE...check her out at Squigglefly!!}

Okay back to the post office convo....why is it that most of my cards are considered parcels...darn embellies...any bumps and bam...up goes the postage...I spent some 'quality' time at the post office on Monday...$15 later and I was on my merry way...sigh. On a postive note, I actually did NOT have to wait in line...wwhhhaaattt???? I know...karma...

Have you popped over to 365 Cards? We're celebrating with Paper Popsicles week!!! I'll be back tomorrow with my Paper Popsicles project...

  6. Way cute Amy. And yes we do all love target, well except for the 6 month ban I put on then a few years back. They wouldn't take something back from my registry and there for they received my wrath in the form of a six month ban. I think it was worse for me.

    pretty card!
    and I know about the post office...they said that when my envelope won't go through the letter slider/opening thing, it causes problems...blah blah blah...so it turns into a package. hahah
    darn embellies!

  35. oof! telling *YOU* to make a card "with pizzazz" is like telling birds to fly!!! have you EVER made a pizzazz-less card??!?! ummmmmmm... NOOooOoOOoOOOoOOOOOOOOO! :)

    having said that, this one *IS* particularly cool...and the snowflake emphasizes the round-card design SOOOO amazingly well; not to mention the awesome color palette of silver, pink, red & black!

    (ps: i HEAR YA, bigtime, re postage! and don't even get me started on SQUARE CARDS or shape-based pricing on packages!!! arrrrgh! i'm goin' to my happy place...)
