Special Wishes for a Christmas Birthday

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Ours was very enjoyable. We went out to eat with my sister and then went on a hike at Arabia Mountain Park. It was more of a stroll than a hike but at least we walked off some of the calories. This starts the season of eating and I am going to have to really watch myself. I love sweets…..who doesn’t? J

Today’s card started out as a sympathy card. I was working on it and my DH came by and said “What a pretty Christmas card.” What???? Can’t he see it is a serious sympathy card? I slept on it a realized he was right, it is a little “over the top” for a sympathy card. It was easy to make a few changes and now it is going to a Christmas Birthday girl. I hope she enjoys it. I have a ton of cards to share as I have been mass producing cards all week. I just can’t seem to get pictures made. Maybe today…… Thanks for stopping by.

 

Going Green

No – I am not color blind! This is really a purple post.

I have made a commitment to “go green.” Do you have as much stash as I do? I am going to do my best to use as much of my stash as possible. This may mean you will see paper and embellishments that are at least 3-4 years old! I hope I will save some money this way and I know I will have to get creative as I use up my “dated” papers, etc. I had in mind to use this snowflake paper and make a blue Christmas card, but I could not find one piece of blue card stock in the right shade, so I went with purple. I used Amy’s sketch to create this card…..

 

Here is my purple angel. I sell most of my cards at church and I am sure someone will love her and give her a good home. Thanks for stopping by today.

 

Your Sleigh Has Arrived

I made this card for Beate’s challenge. It is a Flourishes stamp. I like the fact that you can change the images on the sleigh and it changes the whole look of the sleigh. Of course I had to add glitz to Santa’s Sleigh. I know he likes the Liberace look!

Today was such fun! I went to a stamping friends house and we stamped and talked and snacked all morning. Everyone needs days like this. I will have some more samples to share later. Thanks for stopping by today!
