February Christmas Cards

Ok, I KNOW it's now March but, I tried, really tried to get them done. Uh, Feb is a short month. I'd be right on time if there were 31 days in Feb. Ok, that's my story. These are a stamp-lift from Kristina's MACM 12/3. I thought this was the cutest idea and I decided my 10 cards this month would be this. How hard could it be? Well, parts were harder than I thought, other parts were easier: Tying 30 tiny bows w/sucky fiber (DMC Light Silver Thread --from my cross stitch days. As soon as you cut it, it separates into 4 thin fibers. UCK!) was enough to make me give up. But, I persevered. The easy thing was the Heat & Stick powder. I have had this stuff for YEARS and could never figure out how to use it. The glitter never stuck. And my sucky demo had no idea how to use it. Well, Kristina made it look so easy that I vowed to try it again (I also vowed to try the glue pad again & still haven't messed w/it; maybe tomorrow). I did it just as the video showed & it worked. Soooo cool!!
