Mr Cardinal

Now that Christmas is over, I am not sure what I want to post. We don't make anything that is Happy New Year and it is too soon for hearts and flowers for Valentine's Day. So I thought this cardinal would be good.

Merry Christmas

One Christmas, Jim made one of these for my mom except hers was all bevels. She liked it so much that she had him make one to give the priest the following year. He no longer makes them in bevels, but makes them like this one in colors. Merry Christmas to all my friends and family.

Christmas Eve

I couldn't decide which color to use on this card so I did one of each. The red one is so Santa but he would be flying in the sky which is blue. Which one do you like best?

Santa is about done checking his list as his big night approaches. Do you have any plans for Christmas Eve. Our neighborhood lights luminaries so we will be doing that. After ours are lit, we walk around the neighborhood looking at all the lights and candles.

Christmas Cat

This card was made using the Crazy Cat stamp set. I also have Crazy Birds and will one of these days get the Crazy Dogs too. If I sent cards to family cats, Judy's cat Maggie would get this one. She is real live crazy cat.

Happy Hanukkah

I know I am a little early, but I don't want to forget to write this blog post.  The first night of Hanukkah is December 24.  Happy Hanukkah to all my friends who celebrate.  My Wednesday night community band will be playing a concert this coming week at Beth Am temple.

Snow Village

To make this card, I used four different dies and an embossing folder. To get the layers of snow, tear the card stock and make sure some of the inside of the paper shows.  The houses are a SU retired die from last Christmas.  The sled and tree are new this year.

A Golden Christmas Card

I don't like to rush the seasons, so I have been holding off posting a lot of Christmas cards. So now that Christmas is 12 days away, I am going to be posting more often, maybe every day. This one is very non-traditional colors.

December Arrives

Where has this year gone?  I can't believe it is already December and Christmas will be here in a little over three weeks.  We will be working on getting our tree up this week since we are hosting a Christmas cookie exchange and breakfast for a bunch of our fellow retired math teachers.  Jim put up the outside decorations so that is a step in the right direction.
