Christmas Cards....

Happy Thursday Everyone!

Bianca did pretty well yesterday with her extraction....she has to go back in 2 weeks though for the other side! Poor baby. She's not hurting too much but she's taking it easy. These removals should help her permanent teeth come in nice & straight....we hope!!

Onto my post.....these are for a Christmas Card Swap that I'm in. We were required to use something new so my new item is the fabulous dotted grosgrain ribbon! I loved it when I saw it in the book so actually using it was a toughy......I didn't order any new stamps or DSP so I HAD to use it LOL! My layout is pretty basic but I like it & hopefully the other swappers will enjoy these as well.

I need to try & finish up some mini books that I'm working on so I better get to it! Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great rest of the day!
TTFN,
Hugs,

Supplies:
Snow Swirled ss; Garden Green, Real Red & Whisper White cs; Garden Green & Real Red ink; Flock Together DSP; Wide Oval, Scallop Oval, Small Star & Scallop Edge Punches; Real Red Dotted Grosgrain Ribbon; Gold Brads & White Gel Pen

  20. Good to hear Bianca did well with her extraction. My daughter had to have some teeth pulled a couple months ago...I think it was worse for me than for her!
