Christmas is coming!

Happy Saturday! I'm still riding on cloud 9 after passing my CCRN on Thursday. I can now put all these initials after my name, RN, BSN, CMC (Certified Case Manager), CCRN (Critical Care RN) and now am starting to study for the CNRN which is the Certified Neuro RN. I take that test some time in March. Another MAJOR hard one. Doesn't matter how much you study they are HARD! But once done as long as you keep up your CEUs you are good forever!
Well to share today I have some cards for you first and then a little Core'dinations reminder. My first card is for The Sweet Stop - my term is coming to an end this month with them - one last card after this. Guess I will need to be looking in a new direction. The image is from the Sweet and Sassy shop and the papers are from Graphic 45.

The next card is for the sketch at Unscripted Sketches this week. For this double challenge to use no patterned paper I went straight to Core'dinations papers - you can emboss them or use them as is. This from the new Core Couture collection. I used some digital images for my ornaments and printed them out on the cardstock and then "hung" them.
This last card I did for Faith's birthday over at Designed 2 Delight. We all surprised here with cards made using some of her digital images. I went way back here and used some old Scenic Route which in my book never gets old - just better.
Last of all want to remind everyone to get over to the Core'dinations blog - we are having a 12 days of Christmas technique show and there are some fabulous prizes being given out each and every day you stop in and leave a comment. Think I've got some cards that will be up there this weekend or next week.Thanks for stopping by - hope everyone is getting all ready for Christmas - now it's my turn! Got to get cards out and things ready for next week.
