Hello everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas with your families and friends, I know we did. Even with all the running around and holiday stress it was good and everyone had fun.
I was looking back over all my cards from this past year and picked out a few of my faves, they are in no particular order (I am not that organized this year!) but they are all cards that I loved making, with stamps from my favorite companies, and still love looking at. I hope you enjoy them too!
If you have any questions about the cards, just let me know and I will let you know what was used.
I have to work today, 12 -8 and then plan on having a quiet New Years with Lee and the boy’s. As you know I haven’t stamped much in the last couple of months (I will explain all of that soon), maybe I will get up the energy to do a little bit this evening.
Thank you for all the kind comments and support over the last year, I really do appreciate it and love all of the amazing people who I have met through this fun hobby. I hope you all have a wonderful and safe New Year’s. Here’s to 2013!!!
