All Ye Faithful

What a perfect card to celebrate the true reason of the season.  This was a favorite of my customers.  Not just the card but the stamp set as well.

Time to Chill

This adorable card could be used for a variety of winter purposes.  It features the adorable Penguin from the Snow Place stamp set.  We love the penguins here in St. Louis at our fabulous zoo so this card really celebrates our home town.  If your not from this area and visit the St. Louis Zoo during the summer, the Penguin and Puffin Coast is the place to go to chill out as it is kept at 45 degrees year round.  Watch for another tribute to our Zoo in the soon to be published 2016 Calendars.

The inside greeting is from the retired classic Many Merry Messages stamp set from 2006.

Global Design Project Challenge

Today's card was a challenge for me.  I couldn't  locate anything to copy in my normal surfing paces so I decided I would try something original–a true rarity for me.  I knew the paper I wanted to use and the color palate but as it happens so often, I was coming up blank with any ideas.  So I looked to the GDP challenge blog for inspiration. The GDP is a relatively new blog and I have been watching it for several weeks.  I didn't get my card done in time to play along but the fact that I even tried it is a miracle within itself.  Here is the design and what I came up with:

Season of Style

The Season of Style Designer Series Paper is really classy.  I love the layering the various patterns in the collection.

Christmas Messages

Sometimes you want to send a card during the holidays to let someone know your thinking of them during the time of year.  A Christmas card just doesn't say what you want to say.  This card is perfect to let someone know your thinking of them in a special way.  I sent this card to my dear friend Margaret who recently had surgery.

Christmas Messages

The card could easily be modified to make it a Christmas card or for someone who has a birthday around Christmas.  At my November stamp camp I had a variety of stamps that would change the greeting that could be used for a different purposes.  My customers stayed with the sentiment that I used because the inside sentiment is what makes the card perfect for someone who is in your thoughts this time of year:

One more thing….This was my swap card at our Gathering Place Regional Event back in September.

Third Annual Christmas Card Workshop

On October 26th, over 50 stampers gathered for our Third Annual Christmas Workshop.  The workshop was hosted by me & my peeps, Judy, Marla & Mary.  It was a great day and I believe everyone enjoyed their day.  Here are some highlights of our group and the cards that were made.  I was particularly thrilled that our Laurie was with us most of the day.  She is a treasure to us all.
