Last few Cards, and Free Digi Sentiment
I had a table at a small church craft fair recently where I sold quite a few of my Lighted Glass Blocks. Amanda and I also made some cards and tags...so I thought I'd show you bits and pieces of the ones I was able to get pictures of.
Some of these you may have seen examples of already, these are my takes on the Button Wreath Card.
You remember the Button Tree Cards....here's a few more of the trees.
I also did up a Coffee Card Card (that's not a typo)....it holds coffee cards.
Quite a simple card. Here is the inside.
Plus the tags...some colorful, and some primitive.
In this last photo, the mittens are attached as a single tag.
I put together a quickie...hope you like it!
How are you doing with all your Christmas preparations? I have 18 friends and family coming for Christmas dinner...which I'm really looking forward to, plus I'll be cleaning, wrapping, and doing more decorating!!
Recently my friend SueJ, whom I met blogging, made up a button wreath card I'd like to show you.
Sue is not necessarily a Scrapbooker, and doesn't have a lot of bling sitting around like the rest of us...but I love this button wreath. It's very festive looking. Sue has two blogs, one is about life around the J's called JWalking The Blog. The other is called In-between Time: Journey Through the Prophets. I enjoy checking out both her blogs, and hope you will too!
I just want to take this moment to thank all of you for coming by to visit me. I love reading all your comments; they so encourage me, and I'm glad to be able to share my fun with you!
This may be my last post for this week, so
Here's me wishing you a Very Merry Christmas!
My hope is that you take a quiet moment this Christmas and reflect on life and what it means. (whoa, heavy). I'm actually very serious.
Life is a roller coaster ride sometimes, especially this time of year! In spite of all the happiness you see here, I have also been through some very difficult situations these last few weeks. I don't know what I'd do if I didn't have the bible to turn to.
-It offers me hope when I am hopeless,
-It makes me feel loved again when I feel unloved,
-It gives me direction when I don't know where to turn.
Without God and His Word, I would be lost in this life. He is the only One who brings meaning and hope to mine. So obviously, I want this for you too, and hope above all that you accept Him into your life this Christmas!
Have a good week!
