Have A Question On How I Did Something? PLEASE READ!

I love to share what knowledge I have. I'm finding it more and more difficult to respond to your questions because some of you are not leaving a way for me to contact you. I am not ignoring those of you who have questions, but the majority of the time no contact information is given so I am unable to respond to your inquiries. If you are serious about me answering the questions you ask and do not have a Blogger account with an email address linked to it, please leave your email address or email me with your question at knmic1012@aol.com and I will get back with you. If you email me, be sure to put "blog question" in the subject line so I won't think it's SPAM and delete it.

A Couple of Christmas Cards

I'm back...This will be my last posting for awhile. I will be taking a short break from blogging to tend to some things that I have neglected starting with CLEANING my craftroom!!! After my break, I will only be blogging on a part time basis. I want to take this opportunity to thank all of my loyal followers and friends for their continued support. I have met so many wonderful people from all over the world through my blogging and hope to continue contact with those of you whom I consider my friends. I will continue to monitor my email for those of you that have any questions regarding the recipes or supplies that I have used in my postings. With that being said...I'd like to share a couple of Christmas cards that I made with you---
Because our Internet has been up and down, I haven't been able to visit my favorite blogs but will try to visit you one last time this weekend. Until next time...Enjoy your day!

These are GORGEOUS!! They are so classy. =D I just love the sparkle and the ribbon on the holly card, and the scallops with pearls is the perfect touch to the comfort and joy card. I will miss seeing you around on Blogland, but I know we all need a break now and then. =D Have fun, and I'll look forward to seeing your posts whenever they come around! ((hugs!))

Both of these cards are so very beautiful. The first on with the rich tradtional colors of Christmas and such a beautiful bow. The second one is very elegant and shows the true meaning of Christmas. I love how you put the pearls around the circle. Enjoy your time off but know we're going to miss you.

Love the embossing on the holly card and also how you shaded the center to blend it into the red. It give the holly leaves an even more 3-D effect. The gold card is perfect. I love the lacy look to the circle and the pearl accents, the layers of gold - everything about it. I know I'm going to miss your regular posts but now it will be even more of a treat to surprise us with your amazing creations at random. Rest, relax, rejeuvenate! Enjoy!

Hi Kelly, just when I return you leave, lol. I have missed visiting all of my wonderful blogging friends, so many things happening in life. I wanted to get in before you shut down. Love these X-mas card and all the wonderful added details. You know my favorite is the gold and white, you can send it to me for X-mas, lol.
