  1. Beautiful card. You are right, it is striking. I've never heard of this cart before. Thanks for showing the images on the back and how well they coordinate with your stamps! My fav thing about Christmas is all the lights. I could sit in our den with the tree lights on and stare at it for hours. LOL Hugs! :) Janis

  2. Wow I don't think I've ever been the 1st to comment. My favorite thing about Christmas is of course the Baby Jesus being born and then having family over to celebrate.

  3. What a beautiful card. So simple, but stunning! My favorite thing about Christmas is actually Christmas Eve. My family has a what we call a White Christmas. Everything we eat is white... and Swedish! It is a tradition that I grew up with and will continue now that I am an adult. There is nothing more special that being with family. (But the food is so good too!)

  13. Really beautiful card! I love the colors together. I just love spending the time with my family. I host Christmas every year at my house- so it is always a themed menu and games- my son comes from Colorado and my sister and family come from California. My Daughter lives here with her husband and my granddaughter, who is 21 months. I just enjoy being together- there are usually about 18 of us at my house- great fun!

  21. Mary,
    Your card is beautiful. I think my favorite thing about Christmas is getting my kids new pj's that they get to unwrap on Christmas Eve. My parents used to do the same thing for us on Christmas Eve and even though you knew what it was already going to be, it was fun to see what Mom and Dad had picked out for us. I try to do the same thing with my kids. I don't just walk in and grab the first pair I see. I spend a lot of time looking for just the right thing. My oldest son is getting Oscar the grouch pj pants and a Oscar t-shirt. My oldest daughter in getting cookie monster pj's. (He's 22 and she's 20 years old) My husband and youngest son are getting a matching pair and my littlest girl and my beautiful daughter-in-law are getting matching hello kitty pj's. Thanks for the opportunity to remember a wonderful Christmas memory.
    God Bless

  47. Mary, another wonderful card in your 12 days of Christmas cards series. Just a great colour combination. My favourite thing about Chrismtas is celebrating with friends & family. It is my MOST favourite time of the year so it is hard to pick just one thing because I really, really enjoy it all.....picking out presents, wrapping them and seeing the joy on their faces as they open them, the carols and the decorations....and mostly the reason for the season....the birth of our Lord.

  53. Mary:
    Just a beautiful card. I love this color combo. I have never seen this cartridge. Quite unique. Love the dove. It has a nice shape and easy to cut. I am a nurse, so just being off for Christmas is a blessing. Last year was the first time in over 20 years I was off for Christmas day. My brother in law is a doctor. My family actually celebrates on Christmas eve just because we are both usually working on Christmas. We love all the traditions our family has made over the years.... baking cookies, driving around looking at Christmas lights, shopping, visiting with friends and family.... I love it all.
    Thanks for sharing card #5

  95. Beautiful card Mary that everyone will have fun to make - novice to expert.
    My favorite thing about Christmas: putting the freshly cut tree in a stand on Christmas eve, decorating it after the kids are asleep in bed, and watching the wonder in their eyes when they wake up on Christmas morning to find the tree all decorated with brightly colored lights and ornaments and under the tree- baby Jesus in the manager. May each of you find your own Christmas joy this year. Donna dlbenn56@gmail.com

  98. Your card is lovely. Christmas is my favourite time of year because it's normally when I manage to get all my small family together. Unfortunately, we are scattered all over the globe but at Christmas, everyone travels for miles and across the oceans just so we can all be together :-) It's just absolutely wonderful!

    ReplyDelete
  99. Hi Mary, this is a beautifully simple and elegant card. The dove for me represents the Holy Spirit, and He is very important to my life. My favorite thing about Christmas, is the real reason for the season. To remember all that Jesus did for us! It also means family in the best ways possible.

  104. My favorite thing about Christmas is the birthday party we used to do for Jesus with the neighborhood kids. The gal I used to do it with moved away and I need to start up my own party, possibly with the kids I do crafts with at the Veterans of Foreign Wars Post under our Ladies Auxiliary. We used to sing happy birthday to Jesus, have cake and ice cream and then do carols. The neighborhood kids loved it!

  117. I love this card Mary!! I think I have found my card to mass produce! lol I will have to use a dove from another cart as I don't have this one. My favorite thing about Christmas is Midnight Mass, I just love the feeling of going to Midnight Mass on Christmas Eve. Although we don't go every year because it is so hard to stay up to go, it's not the same when we don't go at midnight and go on Christmas morning.

  132. Hi Mary-

    My favorite thing about Christmas is going caroling at the end of the busy day. As a child my siblings and I went around the neighborhood singing. As an adult, my friends and I drive to various friends' homes to surprise them and their guests with a moment of our Lord's love.

    Thanks for sharing all of your special cards!

  138. I was so excited to see this video. I saw this cart on the Cricut website this past week when ordering another cartridge, but couldn't see exactly what was included---now I'm so anxious to get it. I am of Scandanavian heritage, but no matter what, this has beautiful images for Christmas. My favorite tradition is gathering my 10 grandchildren around me (w/adults present)and reading some version of the Christmas story to them and singin a Christmas song together followed by their opening of presents.

  159. Such a simple but elegant card, very pretty. My favorite thing at Christmas time is my Mom's cut out sugar cookies. Every year when I was young she would start baking them early and put them in the freezer unfrosted thinking she was collecting quite a stash. When my Dad would come home from work he would sneak down and get some for all of us(I have 5 siblings). The next time she would bake a batch and go down to the freezer she would see we had been sneaking them. That poor woman made hundreds of cookies every year.

There is nothing like a candle light service at church, nor the memories the songs of the season stir up. Our home is full of excitement yet at the same time there is peace. The kids are joyfull and expectant, but also awed that God would send a Saviour as a baby. I love the feelings that Christmas brings. (except stress. lol)
