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 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 Few Christmas Cards Done With Kraft and Red Mirror Paper

Hello everyone! I hope you are having a wonderful week! A BIG welcome to my new followers! I have "met" so many wonderful people from all over the world from blogging, I hope you will visit often. I am looking forward to getting to know you. Thank you Kelly from Orange Park, Florida for the sweet comment. We have all been new at one time or another, so please if  I can be of any help to you, don't hesitate to ask. I love to share what knowledge I have with others. If you have a blog, I'd love to visit and follow you as well, if you would leave a comment or email me with your blog link, I will be sure to visit you.
Instead of getting ready for our trip north, I am finding myself in my craftroom every chance I get. I'm loving the combination of kraft and red mirror paper. Here's a few cards I've done with that combination. When I saw the Z-fold card The Other Patti Sue made, I knew I was going to have to copy it. Here is my take on the card she created in late September. Be sure to visit her blog, you will be amazed at her work, she is truly an inspiration---
The best part about this type of card for me is it forces me to finish the inside. For those of you that know me, you know I usually wait until I get ready to send it to finish the inside. By that time I'm scrambling for matching paper---
 Here's a card I did with my new favorite tool...dies from The Scrapping Cottage. After I seen a card that my  blogger friend Eunice did using the Shih Tzu Peeker, I knew I HAD to have them. In addition to the ones I had gotten for Halloween, I have gotten a bunch more so be prepared to see them a lot---
Here is a quick and simple money holder I did for our bug man---
Oh yes...I forgot to post the Halloween card I did for our Disney loving friends Kathi and Bob. It didn't photograph very well...with the flashback from the glitter on "the moon" you can't read the circle word very well but it says "Minnie Halloween Witches"---
That's it for now...Thanks for stopping 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,  leave a comment and I'll be sure to stop by your blog to see what you've been up to. Til next time...have a wonderful week!

such beautiful cards. you are so talented

Oh my, I love the kraft and red mirror combo too. It's very elegant and screams Christmas like no other. The snowflakes are the perfect touch for the paper you used on the Z-fold card. The Scrapping Cottage dies give so much detail. I might have to get me some too. I wondered about the Halloween card for your Disney friends, I thought I just missed it. All of your cards are perfect as always.

Love your Zfold... so awesome! I know what you mean about finishing the inside. I always make myself... it's actually easier while you have all the stuff out! Your other cards are equally as fabulous!

Beautiful cards, Kelly! Z-fold cards are one of my faves to do...and yours turned out so elegant! Glad to see that you are having fun with your CottageCutz dies...gotta love 'em for their intricate detailed cuts! Time consuming to put together, but as your cards show, well worth the time spent!
