February Christmas Cards for Hjertebodens

Greetings to up really early this morning. My dog sat next to my bed whining, pretending he has to go out when all he wants is MY BED!!! As soon as I'm up, he's on it!!! Tooo funny!!!I know his tricks, but I let him get away with it.

I finished my Christmas card entries for the month of February and I am submitting them to Hjertebodens Jule Blogg. We were required to follow a BINGO format for at least one of the cards and I chose the diagonal which required me to include the following: charm/flower/glitter.
I decided to make another book card featuring Tilda with Candy Cone from the Sweet Christmas Dreams collection, available at Diana's Magnolia-licious Store. Tilda is showcased on a Nellie Snellen die and the papers are from BG's Nordic Collection.

The next two cards feature a Toppled Christmas Tree. Thank you to my sweet friend SANDY for that adorable whimsical stamp. Loooooove it!
Also featured is a vintage card using fabulous Pion Design papers. The gorgeous lace was a gift from a dear friend. The die peeking out is Memory Box Catalina Wreath.

Well, I tried something new, but I don't think it's working! I have no idea how my cards will post.....never in the order I download them!!!!! This time, I tried typing the text first and then download one this case, my book card.
I can't seem to solve this problem.
Thank you, dear friends, for visiting my humble blog. Your continued support means the world to me. Love and hugs, Christina

    I really love the vintage one. The second one is oh so funny and the third one Oh so sweet and it's another box

  9. Again you have made wonderful projects Christina!! The cards and your book are beautiful.

  10. My Dear Christina! How in the WORLD do you get so much done so quickly?! You need to come on over here and teach me some time management skills in crafting or something, cause I've got some major problems! hahahahaah!

    Well, these are just GORGEOUS! And the first one, ahhhh yes, that lace is so STUNNING! I love the vintagey feel to the top card, and that middle card image is just so cute! Then your box is amazing as always! You are a pro at making them! And I love how the inside you can place like a little tag in there too!

    I seriously giggled when I read about your dog! hahahaha! That is just way too funny! Maybe next time just scoot over and have him crawl in next to you so you can still get more resting time. hehe. :)

    Much Love,

  11. These are gorgeous Christina! I love all the sweet images you are showcasing today! My favorite is the book with candy inside, I have to find the time to make one of these. Everything is superb as always sweetie! big hugs, Angela

  22. Let's see here what can I say that no one else has alredy mentioned? Phenomenal sums it up on all three cards. When your teaching management skills please sign me up. You're amazing not to mention your art and baking too! Love it all. Oh by the way when your baking maybe you can have a class on that to and also create cards.
    Hugs, Cathy
