Growing up we had a spinning Christmas scene powered by candles. I forget what they are called but they are from Sweden/Germany and such areas of the world. I always loved the beautiful carved people and the pretty colors they were painted. The next few cards feature the Scandinavian Season set, and the beauty of my childhood can be seen here.
I have sent aout about 40+ cards so far this year. I did send out many of these becuase of the simplicity and ease to make. You could make about 6 of these in about a 1/2 hour which is fast!

SO, it's been a while, ok a long, long while, but I have a camera, it's working. I have time. . .ok, well maybe not a lot, but some, and I have pictures. . .
The next two cards use my favorite holiday set, A Cardinal Christmas.
This card uses the Heard from the Heart set and takes advantage of the big shot.
What do you think?

Whew! It's been a long time. I've been busy planting a huge garden ( I'm talking over an acre that we do mostly by hand), moving my mom to Ithaca, and spending time with my brother who is from Oregon. Life has been busy and crazy.
I did make a card for my new friend, Kristi from Honolulu. She sent me this adorable Post-It Note holder. She even created a tutorial to help me learn how to make them. You can see them HERE.
Thank You Kristi!
This is my Thank You Card I'm sending you!
Bye for now!
I will post again tomorrow!

My boss and my coworker are both getting married (not to each other, but both weddings are soon). I love weddings, the romance and happiness that surrounds not only the couple but each person who witnesses the event is amazing.
Here is the card my coworker will receive.
I printed the saying on Vellum on my computer and overlayed it on my stamped cardstock. The pear is from the SU Level 2 Hostess set, Infinite Wisdom. I used Old Olive ink and cardstock and watercolored the image using my inkpads and aqua painter.
