Simply Soft Thank You


I had some time after finishing my Christmas card project for this year to make a couple of other cards.  This one is to replenish my thank you card stash.  I love the color combo of the ocean-like tones of Island Indigo, Pool Party, and Soft Sky.  I used SU markers to color in the image.  This card fits with this week's Flutterby Wednesday 218.

Stamps:  Simply Soft, Beautiful Borders
Paper:  WW, Soft Sky, Island Indigo, DP
Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black, Old Olive, Island Indigo and Soft Sky
Accessories:  Punches, Sizzix Die, Cuttlebug, Ribbon, Stick on Gems

Waiting for Snow


This card was actually made last month but I didn't get to photograph it until now.  Winter is here but where is my snow?  The weather in my neck of the woods has been very mild; some days I can go outside without a jacket.  I am hoping for a white Christmas this year, even if it is only just a dusting of snow.  I have to work Christmas night so if we get a nice storm of several inches after I get home in the morning I would be very happy!  This card fits with the Freshly Made Sketch challenge 65.

Speaking of Christmas, all of my cards for this year are stamped, assembled, stuffed in envelopes, addressed, and packed up to go out to the post office tomorrow morning.  I will post the photos next week.

Praying Tree


This card was made for the family of a dear man who went home to the Lord recently.  At his memorial service it was so wonderful to hear numerous people speak of his encouraging faith and his long service history.  This man left quite a legacy that impacted many people for Christ.  I am glad to have known him, even though it was only for a short time.

Going back to school has kept me away from my craft room.  I have made a few cards over the weeks, including a large batch of Christmas cards, that I will post later.  The service I use for photo editing has been giving me problems so that has added to my posting delays.

Stamps:  Thoughts and Prayers
Paper:  WW, Really Rust, Soft Suede, DP
Ink:  Soft Suede, Summer Starfruit, Really Rust, Cherry Cobbler - SU Markers, Antique Linen - TH
