  1. I love the 4th card shown – clean and simple. And I absolutely LOVE how the bow sits on there nice and flat!

  2. Sharon Wendling

    Very difficult decision choosing a favorite here…but, I guess I would say the tri-fold card & the snowman mini card! But..I love them all!

  3. Mary I just love all of those projects and it’s very hard to pick a favorite. I love everything you create but since you want to have a choice I will pick the red one with the circles and the snowflake. Thanks for sharing your creativity!

  4. They are all so beautiful, I remember them well. Some are in my favorite file. I couldn’t begin to choose just one. Hugs,

  5. Thank you for the trip down Stampin’ Up! memory lane…gorgeous cards.

  6. Love the DVD tin with the holly berries. It has a vintage groove, and I love that!

  7. Your designs are always so classy and clean. Love them all. Thanks for sharing with all of us and may your holidays be filled with lots of warmth and laughter!

  8. I loved the Bermuda Bay “Peace” Card. I CASEd the layout today for the PPA challenge. The Serene Snowflakes stamp set is awesome. Can’t wait till next Sunday to see more of your Christmas creations!

  9. Heidi Kimmerly

    I like them all but love the DVD tin. I think if would make a fabulous card too….

  10. What a tremendous collection!! I am CASE-ing a few of these!!

  11. Hi Donna: Thanks! The “b” is the first letter of the recipient’s name. It was a holiday gift certificate I created specially for her. Hugs, M

  12. All of the above are beautiful but that tin cover is just so pretty. I also love the tree with the snowflakes ~ ingenious.

  13. I love them all but am really drawn to the snowflake in circles on the stamped tree.

    Love your blog and check it every day.


  14. Top note box is my favorite. I love anything done with the top note. Ho Ho Ho…we are going to get a bunch of snow here in Ohio. Hugs, Becky

  15. I choose the first card with the “b” on it, the tri -fold card. That is because of the Holiday Lounge paper, one of my favorites, because it has Taken with Teal in it. You know me, if it’s teal, I’ll take it.

  16. I especially like the first card, but i wasn’t sure what the “b” stands for. Thanks for sharing so much on your blog. It is so generous of you. Love you wow videos.

  17. i love love love the traditional green and red merry christmas! so pretty and classic.

  18. Each one is beautiful and I especially like the green and red Merry Christmas card – especially the matching envelope.

  19. Wowzer!

  20. HI Mary!

    I think the top note box is my fave, but I also liked the merry and bright magnet project. TFS
