I'd like to share with you my creations.  For a busy mom like me, I'm showcasing Close to My Heart's Dimensional Elements- In Color Holiday and Pear & Partridge Complements Glitter Rub- Ons. 

First up are the cards using the rub ons:

Isn't it great how cute your card can look using rub- ons!

How about a card using non traditional colors and the circut:  (Stella and Pear & Partridge paper):

And here are my cards using the Dimensional Elements:

(Pssttt- this one is my favorite!)  YES, that is Avonlea Paper!  That is just another cool thing about ctmh- you can mix and match all of their papers!  I love Avonlea's paper!  This pattern is so rich!  Perfect for Christmas!

Of course I have to share a page I completed too:  I have a Christmas Album and this will be perfect for the kids santa picture or our family picture this year:

Here's another secret- that pink/red paper in the background is from Stella :)
