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 email me, be sure to put "blog question" in the subject line so I won't think it's SPAM and delete it.

I'm Back With Some Christmas Cards

Good Morning...Thanks for stopping by. I hope you are having a GREAT week. Here are the Christmas cards that I said I would post. I hope I have inspired you enough to leave a comment and sign up to be a follower if you aren't already. YOUR comments are MY inspiration to keep posting! I have been having SO much fun but I really need to set the Christmas stuff aside and get busy on my Thanksgiving cards!!! This first card is for our vet using the Scrapping Cottage Shih Tzu die. I had first seen this die on my good blogger friend Eunice's blog and knew I had to have it. I left off the goofy eyebrows from the one to make it look like a Maltese then cut the top knot off the other to make it look like a Peek-a-Poo. What a great likeness to our dogs Charlee and Triskett---   
 Here is the card I made for the twins using The Cute Christmas Collection from Digi Stamp Boutique that I colored with Copics, added a few snowflakes using the 2x2 Cuttlebug Snowflake die and added some Liquid Applique---
 A mitten card using Spellbinder Mitten die---
 Another mitten card...using the Cuttlebug Snowflake Embossing folder. This is a Z-fold and try as I might I couldn't get a good picture of it opened---
And finally a card using the Go Kreate Snowman, Cuttlebug 3x3 Tree die and Swiss Dot embossing folder. The sheet music is Frosy the Snowman that I found on-line. Because of the bells, I had to make an envelope box---
Super EASY and it fits like a glove. I used a 6 1/2" by 11" sheet of card stock scored at 1/2" on each side then scored at 2", 2 1/2", 6 7/8", 7 3/8". Then added a scallop border, some score lines, Scor Tape and an elastic cord for closing---
That's it for today...I've got a few Thank You cards to make than I've GOT to get busy on my Thanksgiving cards!!! Thanks for stopping by..and as always if you have any questions on the recipe or supplies that I have used in my postings today, please feel free to email me. Even though I am no longer actively blogging, I will stop by your blog if you leave a comment to see what you've been up to. I won't be adding these to my Slide Show...it's my understanding that the site that I use for the slide show will be discontinuing it after the first of the year at which time I will remove it and see what I can come up with to replace it. Have a wonderful week..I'll see you next time!

A Great collection of Christmas cards Kelly! I love 'em all but my favorite is the for the twins. Love your coloring!!! The bears look furry and cuddly. It really makes me want to start on Christmas cards but I am still struggling to finish my Halloween cards...and I've only got 3 of them to do. I don't know how you can turn out so many fantastic cards in such a short amount of time!

Kelly - The card for the twins is perfect - so sweet! I love that paper, it reminds me of snowflurries. Both the mitten cards are adorable but the blue/green is my favorite. The simple silver cord really sets it off and the snowman in the contrasting red and white is great too. Love that little flower on the stovepipe hat. But really . . my favorite is those darling puppies. I'm thinking it seems it might be true that the puppies are starting to look like their owners (or vice-versa). It's always a great surprise to see your new additions. Thanks for sharing!
