Joy Fold Christmas

Beate reminded me of the joy fold in a post last week, so I played around with the idea on this card...

Top Note Box

Splitcoast featured this tutorial as part of their holiday tutorial blitz and so here is my interpretation...

We had stamp club this past Wednesday, and it was fun to get together with the 'girls' - especially since I missed last month. Here are a couple of the Christmas cards we made.

One more...

This is another sympathy card I made last weekend. It's more than sympathy...more like compassion...or my heart goes out to you...(sigh) once again - I just don't have the right words..

It's never easy...

It's never easy to find the right words to say or the right card to make when someone looses someone dear. I guess you just do your best and wrap them in prayer...

A2 Card Box

I've been looking at the Christmas Blitz tutorials on Splitcoast over the weekend and only had time to try this one. I'm not completely happy with the tags inside... I tried using a colour that I just don't seem to use. I guess I'm just not a big fan of 'bermuda bay', so I made myself use it in this project;)

Sympathy Card

A friend of ours had a death in the family on the weekend. I always have a hard time making a sympathy card. Words frankly just do not convey enough - so on this one I just tried to use colours and images that would hopefully be something my friend would choose....

Happy Anniversary, Les!

7 years ago today, I married the man I love...and today, I'm more in love with him than ever! Happy Anniversary, Les!

I tried to capture the feel of Paris in this card since for our anniversary we were able to go there, but without necessarily using any of the icons of Paris... The buildings have this yellow hue of aged plaster that my husband and I both liked, so that is where the colour inspiration came from...also clocks are a big part of architecture there and seemed fitting for anniversary card celebrating a marking of time.. All supplies were from Stampin Up except for the ribbon and charms. I picked up the charms (there's one inside too) at my LSS and the ribbon was a find on ebay, that I've had in my stash fover (big bolt!)

Dear Reader,

I'm not sure if I was missed, but wanted to apologize for how long it's been since I've posted... A dream came true and my husband and I went to Paris! We got back a bit ago, but then our daughter got sick and so crafting hasn't been happening lately...and I miss it! But I LOVED Paris! Our 7th anniversary is tomorrow, and each year in October we usually try to get away, just us two, usually somewhere within driving distance of here. This year, by God's grace, we were able to do Paris:) I'll be back tomorrow with the anniversary card I'm making for my husband...thanks for visiting my little blog!
