Hello! Welcome to my blog and thank you for stopping by. I design and create handcrafted greeting cards. I like to call this passion of mine "visual poetry" ....imagery on paper. Please feel free to browse the photos of my cards and leave a comment.

Christmas Cards

Hello fellow crafters! I have not posted anything in almost a month nor have I submitted any projects into challenges. I have been very busy trying to come up with ideas for Christmas cards. It seems my creative juices took a sabbatical and left me stranded. Fortunately, I talked them into coming back and start flowing again. Do any of you have days, weeks or even months when your creativity goes into sleep mode? Please say you do!

I'm posting photos of several Christmas cards that I've made in the last few days.  Each year I have made a different card for each recipient. No two were the same. This year I was planning to make only 1 or 2 types of cards to send to family and friends. However, once I made one, I wanted to make a different one, and then another different one, and so on. So, once again, no two cards will be alike. Why do I punish myself like this you may ask?  Because I love making Christmas cards!!! 

And here are a few of the cards that I've made:

 (the poinsettia was made from vellum, embossed in silver and die cut)

 (love this twig wreath)

 (No, I did not color this scene. It's a desktop wallpaper that I found on line)

 (The die cut layer is a spruce green, although it looks black, and it's matted with gold card stock. 
The sentiment is embossed in gold as are the holly leaves in the opposite corners)

Thanks for stopping by. Hope you enjoyed my burst of creativity. I love comments so please don't hesitate to leave one.

May your creativity never leave you stranded. Have a wonderful day!
