Christmas Card workshop

This last weekend was our 4th annual Christmas Card workshop that Anita (my sister consultant) and I organize. We focus on a different technique for each card and different stamp sets so that there is a nice variety :)
Here are the 4 that Anita designed The first one uses the Holiday wishes stamp only available in Nov.
 this one focuses on embossing and glitter with the tannenbaum stamp set.
 This cute Santa is from the Believe workshop on the go and uses the Kraft borders (retired) and spray pen.
 This beautiful snowflake was stamped with the "snowfakes" stamp set and cut out with the cricut machine.
and here are the 4 that I designed. If you have any questions please feel free to email or comment :) My first card was inspired by another consultant and uses the remarkable wreath stamp set and liquid applique.

 This card uses the Glory to God stamp set and features the cracked glass technique.
 This card uses the shaving cream technique to create the background! Lots of fun :) and the Winter Joy!

 This supper cute reindeer is from the stamp set Bundled Buddies. We coloured him with water colour pencils and used liquid glass on his nose, eye, hat, hoofs and bum dots :)
What do you think? Which ones are your favorites?

My "other" hobbie

Like an onion I have many layers :) One of the things I do and read about other that cards and scrapbooking is money management! One of the Blogs I read regularly is Enemy of Debt and sponsored by Life Insurance Finder the life insurance comparison experts” They have a $500 giveaway for posting your "Debt Free bucket list" Sooooo here it is :)

1. Go to Hawaii during Ironman and assist (one day I would love to race)
2. Run the Great wall of China marathon
3. Not have to work shift work so that I can focus on training more
4. Go See the Tour de France
5. Buy my honey a sailboat
