I know you guys like to see my handmade Christmas cards, so here they are.

These are for business people that help me all year...bank tellers, grocery peeps etc. Reindeer Minnie Mouse. Yes, I cut everything out & put it together :)

These are for family & friends. I cut out the tri-fold tree, then I embossed it with the Twelve Days of Christmas words through an embossing machine. I embossed the snow falling on a pearly card & attach the tree over it. When you untie the front tree ribbon, it opens up to a photo charm of baby girl wrapped in a swaddling blanket :cloud9: Then I cut hand torn paper for the inside liner & stamp the sentiment on the right, & die cut another tree message & attach it to the left side. The kids have an adorable all black kitty, so I cut out a kitty out of black velvet & attached him to the bottom of the tree :)

Why can't I just buy a box of cards lol.

An this is a one of a kind made for our baby girl Ruby. My theme for her this Christmas is Penguins, so I found this adorable rubber stamp of a little girl sipping hot cocoa out of the same cup with a Penguin...awww & put it all in a snow globe with her name plate on it. So fun!

:kisskiss::thankyou:That is soooo sweet of you to say! I absolutely LOVE love to give, especially doing the personal touch to the cards. To me, it's really what the holiday is all about. It's also great therapy for me..........like the juice :roflmao::heart: I can't wait for the kids to see theirs.

The cards are really great! Funny and creative and professional at the same time. I'd love to be able to make anything like that. Your friends and relatives are very lucky to receive one of those. :)

LOL!!!! They must be in competition with NM in the naming dept. :D
Yep, NM has the items described like that too. Pitiful.
So goofy.
I know they'really affiliated but what are the odds that they'd have the same type of f-up on their sites. I keep meaning to email them

I saw the salmon (or strawberry, depending on which list of color descriptions you're reading) lipstick isn't shipping until January 6 from Neimans, so I guess that's why chanel.com says the collection hasn't launched. Maybe this is considered a preview on chanel.com.

I checked out the collection at Blue Mercury today. In the pan, the Elegance blush is really pretty but I was so disappointed at the lack of pigmentation. I had to dig into the pan about 4 times just to get it to swatch on my hand and it was still light. I'm glad I didn't like it, I've bought way too much blush lately - both NARS Unfiltered palettes, both NARS Sarah Moon blushes.

overall, this collection doesn't look like it's for Spring. To me, it screams Fall.

It did seem early to me but I'm not the most experienced with the Chanel launches
