Hurrah! Time to post the Christmas cards I made this summer! It's so strange to do them then, but I knew with college I didn't dare wait until November!

I love this stamp from Biblical impressions, and it works perfectly with gold leaf. I had a difficult time photographing this card; the light just was not right. The gold leaf mix I used had a bit more of the color of the card in it, for some reason it doesn't come through in the photo. :-(

25th Anniversary

Wow, married for a quarter of a century! God blessed me with a fabulous husband, and I'm grateful!

Unfortunately, I just was not inspired for the card. I couldn't seem to get past the fact that I didn't have a 25th anniversary stamp! Silly, but I just kept putting off the card until it nearly was too late. I didn't want a feminine card, and definitely wanted silver, so this wallpaper print seemed a good choice, with the flecks of silver in it. I was in a hurry when photographing the picture, so it's a bit blurred.

In-a-hurry re-make

Wow, Thanksgiving is nearly here, time to post the other fall season card I made this year. I am really terrible about dates, and although we had already given our October birthday daughter her gift (she live a couple hours away, so when we connected with her for a wedding a few weeks before it, we gave her our gift then), I wanted to have a card in the mail for the actual birth date. Of course, I remembered it two days before the day, no time to create a new card. So, I resurrected this old card from 2006 and covered up the text with cuttlebugged leaves and a happy birthday stamp. It's not a fabulous card, but it looks a little better than what the camera indicates. :-)
