Crafty Girl - Happy Day!

I did it! Today I finished all 75 of my Christmas cards! A big thank you to my friend Nola - we helped each other with our cards this year; she tied ribbons and I was in charge of cutting lots of paper! Hooooooray! Now I need a family photo and a Christmas letter!

Here they are all lined up in a row. Since most of you reading this are getting a card, I am not showing them to you!

Here they are again from a different angle!

Here is a little sneak peek!

Christmas is past, so here they are!


  1. i'm excited to see the rest (i hope i'm one of the 75). i will say i'm confused as to what those other absolutely AMAZING christmas cards were that you posted. those were beautiful too. i don't believe they were from past christmases. i keep every card i send you and your blog is making me understand why. you really are gifted in this area and i love seeing what you create. side note - there seemed to be a stamp set with the words "joy" maybe "peace" was another. where did you get that? or was that just your beautiful handwriting. i remember one day i spent a lot of time trying to imitate your cursive "r"s from a letter you sent without much success.

    good luck on sunday. i did respond to your news in the comment section of my blog.

    p.s. how's the weight watcher's thing going? i've regained 10 of the 15 lbs i lost this summer. time for me to focus again; although, the week before thanksgiving isn't exactly the ideal time to start.

  2. Hey April! The other cards were designs for the November card class that I teach for Enrichment. The stamp set is called "Small Script" from Stampin Up.
    Weight Watchers could be going a lot better. I have gained back 12 pounds since I starting traveling this summer!! I am still down about 10 pounds, but I need to get back on track. I know, Thanksgiving is next week and I am doomed. Any helpful hints you might have would be greatly appreciated!
