Jump on Christmas 2012

Good morning! I hope everyone had a safe and wonderful weekend! I sure did! Except the heat! YUCK! So funny or maybe I should say NOT so funny you get all cleaned up to go to a few picnics just to sit there and sweat! UGH! But that is okay because we had tons of fun.

So I thought I would think ahead for Christmas ~ TOTALLY different type of weather. Before you know it I will be complaining about the cold weather! Can't seem to win! So I wanted to share with you a real quick card I made with Emma's new release! I will put all my information at the bottom of the post of ALL the products I used. Nothing fancy but fun to make! I did use some cereal boxes to make my ornaments a tad sturdier and decided to tie some crinkle ribbon around the tops for the hanging part! But I just wanted to show you all how quick and easy you could do some Christmas cards ~ which I turned into money cards! Thank You Glora for the idea!!!

I also wanted to let you today is Tuesday it's time for the "Show Me Your Technique" segment! So every Tuesday some very talented MCT design team members will be sharing with you and me their technique. Some you may already know about ~ some might be just a different way they do something or maybe you have seen it but never knew how to do it! Listen there are so many techniques out there to learn about! I am super excited for this! Many times I have said to myself how did she/he do that? This week the 3 VERY talented ladies are:
