 Hello! Everyone ready to mail out your cards ? I made so many this year. I sell my cards at my church craft show, so need lots. This one was a favorite at the craft show, good thing I took a photo before I went as this one sold out. It's a sort of frankenstein card, top of the globe is SSS, base is lawn fawn, trees, Taylored expresions... you get the idea. I'll need to make more of this one Thanks for stopping by today and happy crafting.

 Hello! Welcome back . I am enjoying pulling out my embossing folders to add texture to my backgrounds. I feel it makes the whole card look better with a bit of texture or demension. This darling Santa die is from Spellbinders (October small die of the month) and i just love him . My mom collects Santa ornaments so I'm going to send her this card. Thanks for stopping by today.

 Hello! Hope you are doing well and working on your Christmas cards. I've had this die since last fall and finally got around to using it on a card. I'm trying to make different themes/colors form what I made the previous year. I'm not a big fan of patterned paper , so I've been pushing myself to use it more often. Thanks for stopping by today.

 Hello! I've been hard at work making plenty of Christmas cards for my upcoming craft shows. I found this darling Pooh image and had to have this stamp. I'm sure it's going to be a popular one. I like to make multiples of Christmas cards to build up my supply,so I spent an evening coloring a bunch of these. It was really relaxing. Thanks for stopping by today.

 Hello! I hope you are all doing well. I've been hard at work repianting my craft area/ basement. I've wanted to brighten up the area so a fresh coat of paint helped greatly, did a good clean up during the pocess. It feels nice to be back in the space and my mojo has gotten a slight boost. I've been reaching for embossing folders more lately, anyone else? I just think they add a little something special . Also loving the classic Christmas colors right now. Thanks for stopping by today.

Hello! I'm back with another Christmas card. I had fun trying different things to achieve this background . I love snowflake cards because you can change the sentiment and make it a thank you or a winter card. I hope you all are doing well. Be back soon.

 Hello! I'm hoping this year to actually use all the fun new Christmas card supplies I bought before septmeber when the new stuff starts coming out..... but then I say this every year. I wasn't as bad this past year as in years past. Mostly because I did a mini make over of my crafting space and I purged out a bunch of stuff I wasn't using any longer. I'm going to challenge myself to a 3 month no buy (better stock up on adhesive first , lol) and see if i can use the stuff I have more. Has anyone else done this?

 Hello! I'm back with a fun snowmen card to share. Diecut is Taylored Expressions and sentiment is SSS. I'm a sucker for any snowman stamps or dies, so this was a must have for me. Making my Christmas cards all year long gives my more time for some of these more detailed cards with lots of dies. I try to make 5 or 6 of every card I share. I do 1 craft show a year at church and do pretty well and do sell some to coworkers too. Thanks for stopping by today.

Hello and Happy New Year! I'm back after a short holiday break with a Winnie the Pooh Christmas card.  The image is from Unity stamps. Recently they have released several Pooh stamps, I picked up a few. I'm still trying to figure out the best colors for Pooh, not thrilled with the end result. I hope you will join us and get a kickstart on your cards for next Christmas.
