A Merry Little Thursday

Greetings friends! In the spirit of the upcoming holidays I thought I'd pick out some of my favorite holiday cards from the gallery! I can't believe it's December already... the countdown to the New Year has begun. If these cards don't get you in the mood for the holiday, I don't know what will. haha.














 
By Randi Mermaid Princess

Time to bust out the xmas music now! DO DI DOOO! Ok also I know many of you have been waiting for this...


Daniel and Odette

More info on these later. Have a great day!

Today's question is: Is your tree up yet?

We don't have a tree yet. Maybe I can get a tiny desk on and perch it on top of the boxes...

The card samples were pretty but.... I want those two images!!! They are oh so ever cute. How do we win them?

Our Christmas tree has been up before Thanksgiving already. Hehehe...we all couldn't wait.

Jeanet said...

Oh no, first we have to celebrate
Sinterklaas (a Dutch tradition with presents for everyone)

Carisa said...

Cute new images - Um, I was just over there, not exactly sure where you could possibly set up a tree....Maybe on the little deck? haha

Kris said...

Awesome line up today!!! beautiful Christmas creations... yep my tree is up... it has been up since the weekend before Thanksgiving and then we decorated it Thanksgiving day... wish i could keep it up all year! =D

RiNNE said...

Cute cards, everyone! And I love those images! Our tree is up! Two days after Thanksgiving!

Fran said...

Thank you for picking out my little ornament from the gallery, I was so excited to see one of my creations on the blog with all the other fabulous work.
My tree has been up for nearly 2 weeks but it only got decorated several days ago, I was trying to get my boys used to the tree before I put decorations on in the hopes they would not pull all the decorations off. It had sort of worked :)

Amy said...

Beautiful cards!
No I don't have a tree up yet but I'm hoping to get the place all decorated this weekend when I have some time.

Now Marie... you know you can't go and tease us with two new "Twi" Sprouts and not give us any way to complete our collections don't you? Does this mean there might be another limited weekend digi sale? hint... hint... hint... ;)

:)

Ruthie said...

Nope - our tree is not up yet - it goes up this weekend. Cant get into the spirit until its up!

Angie said...

Great holiday cards! I really REALLY need to get mine done (ahem, started). I love Daniel and Odette! Our tree is up. It's a little 3 foot one, on a little table... but it's not all decorated yet.

Tracey Feeger said...

Oh man I love both these cuties. Cards are super too.

No tree up yet. We wait for after my little girls birthday on the 17th before we put up now. It will be one of our new christmas traditions.

Angie said...

Um, did I miss the grand prize winner from the Blog Hop? I saw Gabby's winner on her blog, but was the Grand Prize winner supposed to be announced on here yesterday? Maybe in my sickness I just didn't notice it? My mind hasn't been quite right since I got this sinus infection, lol!

Craftyanny said...

noooooooooooooo hopefully it will be by the weekend though.
Gorgeous work this morning ladies:)

Randi said...

Love the holiday lineup today! Mermaid princess..that has to be my fav!! Love ya Marie!

Oh, LOVE the new digis!

Yikes, is it December?!? ;o) I'll be getting my tree up this weekend. A faux one. I'm allergic to pine!! How sad is that!

☼ Cheryl* said...

ooh the cards are great!!
My tree is not up yet. I'm trying to hold off for a little bit longer, my 1 year old will be on it so fast when it's up, so I don't want it up yet!

Caz said...

My tree is going up tomorrow evening and I am writing cards (mostly handmade) and will start to wrap some pressies as I am fed up with leaving it all to a mad panic in the final week.

Tink said...

Rachel said...

Thanks for highlighting my card! All of them are adorable, I just saw Randi's yesterday and they are fantastic. Those images are adorable too, I especially love her hair and outfit!

Yes, we got it up on Black Friday and got it all decorated. Love having it up as long as possible :0) Though now we have cats that like to climb it so that may change!

KymKreates said...

We are going away this Christmas so it will be a hard sell to get my husband to let me put up a tree this year so the answer is no. That little couple is adorable!!!!

Tanya said...

The cards are awesome, what great inspiration!! Good job girls!

Our tree went up on Saturday and we are almost done decorating the rest of the house.

Angela said...

Wow, I love all everyone Christmas Cards! Just beautiful. And I am so loving these two images. I wish I had all the images! My Daughter would die. She is a big Twilight Fan!! Aand she loves looking at everyone elses creations with them. My tree has been up since Thanksgiving night and decorated. It is a tradition in my house to put it up the smae time every year! And my children make sure as soon as we get home from Thanksgiving Dinner at Mamaw's we get the tree and all the decoration down and get it put up! I hate put it up, well mostly just the lights!
Hugs,
Angela

I have a two foot tree and a six foot tree and I havent put either of them up in 4 years. I live alone, so I still have all my ornaments at my parents and they put them up on their tree.

Anita Hovey said...

Fabulous cards. D&O are very cute...I'm curious as to who they are :)

No, our tree isn't up yet...but it is going up this weekend.

Mary

Jessica said...

Sami said...

Great cards - just wondering if you have thought of doing a cross between the Xmas Sweeties set and the Cake Topper set... Like a Merry Kissmas????

Clare (Littlebear) said...

What a beautiful selection of Christmas cards.
I'm not putting a tree up this year, I will next year when my son is a bit older.

What lovely cards! I can't believe it is December either! Where did the year go?! I do not have my Christmas tree up yet, in fact only a few items I am done shopping for, but I am hoping to fix that this weekend!

Tanya Rudd said...

Our fake tree is up, we go get the real one this weekend,
Hugs

Mary Giles (OhioMary) said...

Wow! I'm defintely feeling Christmasy now after all that fabulous inspiration.

Tree is up, lights on(story behind that), still need to put the decorations on.

Oooh love the digis. Can't wait to see the rest fo the info for them.

Debby said...

Beautiful cards! Love the new images. We put two trees and and outside lights. We take em out of the box and my daughter and I power through them. They were up the day after Thanksgiving :-)

Lisa McDowell said...

No mine isn't I have been painting some crafts and haven't had time...

Jennifer S. said...

I love everyone's creations! They are gorgeous!!! :D

Tree... it's up but not decorated. We bought a pre-lit one this year and we need to take it back to the store because the bottom row of branches don't light up. :(

Larisa said...

Love, Love, Love the New digis sooooo cute! I must have them for my Twilight collection!

Erica said...

I love these images!!! The cards are great too! My tree is not up but it will be soon.

Michelle R said...

Yes finally. My 9 year old daughter kept asking everyday when we were going to put it up, because normally it's up the day after Thanksgiving. So we put it up last night and hse is a happy camper.

Tracy.H said...

Love these new images!

Yup! Our tree went up this past Sunday. Always goes up the weekend closest to the 1st of December. :0)

laos348 said...

Fabulous holiday cards! Yep, our tree is up. We always put it up for Thanksgiving and enjoy it all month long.

Jodi Collins aka Kharmagirl said...

Holy hannah montana! I NEED these two for sure!!! Can't wait for more info!!
My tree is up and the house is 99% decorated...just have to do the village scene which makes my head hurt to think about! LOL!!

V said...

Love all the sparkle in today's cards! Gorgeous!

Our tree went up on Saturday. It took me a couple of days to get it completely decorated and the train up underneath. Now it just needs a few packages tucked under the branches. :)

JessicaK said...

No tree, but I do have a christmas wreath with bells.... :)

Gwen said...

I don't put up a tree this time of year. I put up snowflakes and snowmen all over the house. I can leave them up all season and don't have to worry about taking them down until spring.

margie c said...

What sweet holiday cards!

Our tree was up early this year! Black Friday has turned into decorating day for us :)

OMG! Daniel and Odette! Perfect match to Carlisle and Esme!!! It's all complete now! You sooo ROCK, Marie!!! :)

Farida Rone said...

My tree is up since october because these days are passing so fast that I want to spend more time with my christmas decoration.

Jennifer said...

NO tree for me yet. I love the new couple.

PaperCrafty said...

My tree will be up this weekend!!

Tammy said...

Love the cute mermaid and flutter altered for Christmas. All the cards are beautiful! Got our tree up on Thanksgiving and the kids each have their own mini to put in their rooms. :)

kadie said...

OMGOSH!!! I LOVE ahem, Carlise and Esme, I mean Daniel and Odette...our collections are in dire need of these cuties to complete the set!! :)

BEAUTIFUL line up today!! I'm so inspired for my Christmas cards now!! Thanks, everyone!

Carol Meadows said...

Since I am out-of-order from surgery I don't think I will be getting one up this year. I am lucky to make it around with crutches. Carol M in TX / carolswingster77@aol.com

Gabby said...

Love the line-up! Sp Merry & Bright! :D

No tree up yet...no decorations... Seems this year there's not too much spirit in the house. Even my kids have cried and let me know they are NOT looking forward to their first Christmas without their grandma...I feel 100X's worst because I've NEVER missed a Christmas with my mom. BUT hubby says he's still gonna get at least a tree for the kids. *shrugs shoulders*

Stephanie Wright said...

Well you have made the collection complete - just need to get my hands on them - please put us out of our misery! Keep up the great work - i am now a fan of digi's after the twilight ones from the other weekend! Thanks and no tree here - our tree doesn't go up until after the 8th.

Dani said...

I want those new digis!! So cute!!

Yes my tree is up but 2 of my kids are trying to take it down!! LOL!

Blankiefinder said...

Well, our tree is up... technically... lol- I don't know when we will find time to put up lights and ornaments though!

Jessabells said...

wow, everyone's cards look great! Daniel and Oddette sure are cuties.

We don't have the tree up yet. We are actually supposed to put it up tonight. I have to go run and get some eggnog and find the Christmas music.

Crafty Num Nums said...

Nope no tree yet :( I am trying to decide if I want to buy a BIGGER tree this year or just put up the one we have already, ummmm, have to decide quickly tho I want to decorate this weekend :)

nonapearl said...

it sure is! love the new peeps!

Erin said...

I love the Christmas Mermaid. Yes my 3 trees are up and I'm done with my shopping. The snow started today and I'm glad I don't have to go out in it!

Isabelle said...

these are all great cards! i love how the santa hat was added to some of the other stamps! Daniel & Odette are adorable, i would love to get my hands on them!

Our tree was put up over the week-end and i decorated it with the kids yesterday afternoon while watching Frosty the Snowman!

resmith said...

Those are wonderful! No, our tree isn't up yet. NOt sure when it will be. I do have a few decorations around though.

Lesley said...

What a lovely showcase of projects!

My tree will go up on Sunday. I take the kids to my dad's office Christmas party and we fill them full of sugar and Santa. Meanwhile, hubby puts up the tree (the awkward bit, that's why we take the kids away, LOL!) When we get home from the party we all decorate it together

Kim Etherington said...

We will get ours this weekend. Too early and all the pine needles are everywhere by Xmas day. Love the cards you picked out!

Dawn said...

Just LOVE the new images. I am so bummed I missed the first ones. I could really use them for a birthday card for this weekend.

No tree yet. Hopefully soon.

T in Etown said...

gorgeous card...
LOOOOOve those digital stamps..oh my gosh need them......
nope no tree up yet but hope to have it up at the end of the day today...

Jenny said...

Wow these card are beautiful! This sure bring the holiday spirit with the Christmas colors. Haven't put the tree up yet maybe this weekend. But I did put a few decoration and wrap a few gifts. Daniel & Odette are just too cute.

NormaJean said...

MommaJess said...

crafty amy said...

What a great line up of cards I love the santa hats.
My tre is not uo yet and normally put it up on Christmas eve but am sure my ther half will win this year and it will go up much earlier lol

Hugs

Amy xx

Tina said...

Funny you should ask, I told my boys we would do it last night, but it didn't work out that way. So, tonight it is ;)

Lisa Hjulberg said...

No my trees (plural) are not up yet. It got to where I had to have two trees... one for the kids favorite ornaments, and one for my fancy collection. hahaha (or should I say, hohoho)

I've neglected my TGF stamps for far too long. To the craft room I go! The samples are inspiring, especially Butterfly Anya with a Santa hat. Too cute!

Sue D said...

Not yet--maybe by this weekend.

Raven said...

Our tree is not up yet. But I really really want these in rubber or digis omg I have been wondering if you would make these they are adorable.

Amy's Stocking Stuffers said...

Ooh, love the new stamps (or digis, as the case may be)!

No tree for us. :-( We have 7 cats and our tree just will not stay up. One cat chews through all the ornament strings, so even though the ornaments are unbreakable, he renders them useless. And another cat climbed up the inside of the tree numerous times, knocking it over. I got tired of putting it all back together several times a day.

If I could invent a cat-proof Christmas tree, I'd be rich!

BaNessa said...

OMG!!! I am so excited. I LOVE Daniel and Odette (Especially Daniel)

Thank you!!!!

Loz (Aus) said...

Oh, I'm loving these cuties too!! Put our tree up on the 1st, let my daugther help, she's nearly 4 - then when she went to bed I put 90% of the decorations above her eye-height! It looked like it was wearing a very Christmassy Tu-tu!!

Sammi said...

Oh lovely...these cards are all gorgeous! Ooooh.... I love the images.. perfect addition to the other "Cullens' digis!! :D
yeah... our tree went up on the 1st December!! xxx

Monique said...

Yes my tree is up! And you should really pick me because, TODAY IS MY BIRTHDAY! :D

As always, thanks for sharing!

beadz said...

I've put up one tree, still have several more to go.
hugs,
Gini

Lacey Stephens said...

So many lovely cards!! Thanks for showing mine!! :-)
Nope, no Christmas tree up yet. We will actually not be home for Christmas. But I still want to put up a tree. We may just put up the pre-lit fake tree with just the lights (no ornaments). It really isn't worth the hassle since we will be gone half of December!
~lacey

Tammy said...

Woo Hoo!! SO glad to see those digis.
Love the DT line up! Fantasitc

Jeanette (Forest Ranger) said...

I love the cards! Cute CUTE!

To answer the question... yes and no! 37 of my trees are up. I still have 1 more to put up and decorate for a total of 38 this year.

Nancy said...

Our tree went up on Tuesday evening! I'm ahead with the decorating but woefully behind on the Christmas cards!!

The cards are awesome...especially the blue Flutter Anya! Love her!

lorena b. said...

No tree(s) yet! Love the new images! I have a December baby so it gets hectic around here.

Kim R. said...

Beautiful cards. The two images are so cute. I have my decorations up but not my trees yet. I'm going to do it this weekend.

sweet craf-tea chick said...

No tree up yet. I can't believe it's December already. Hopefully, I'll find some time to put it up soon ;p'.

Tammy Miller said...

Great cards, yes my tree is up and has been since the day after thanksgiving as it has been every year for the last 22. My kids are older now but still expect the tree up on the Friday after!
