Another notepad and a card!



Good Morning Everyone! I woke up to a beautiful but a cold morning! At least the sun is shinning! We will take that after having so much rain! I have been busy making my Christmas gifts this past week. I want to get a good head start...because before you know it Christmas
will be here. I do not like to feel stressed out at that time of year, as it's suppose to be fun
making gifts, not stressful! So if I start early..I should be ok. Right now, I am in the beginnings of making my niece a beautiful quilt, totally inspired by my quilt card! So that may take me away from making cards for a couple of days. I will definetly post it when I am done.
Today I made a card and a note pad to match from the Whipper Snapper Design Stamp called Spirit of Christmas. I coloured with prismas and lyras and yes...I added lots of glitter! I like to stitch around my cards as I think it gives it that nice finished look!
Hope you have a great day and have sunshine where you are!

  16. Wow, sounds so cozy at your house....cold weather, making a quilt, making this adorable Santa card and notepad,....I love it! We finally got temps in the 40's and I'm loving it. I can wear real shoes instead of sandals, and jeans instead of capris. Yay! I, too, am trying to avoid the last-minute holiday rush and getting a jump on things early. Hope it works. My card-making has taken a set-back and I feel badly about it, but I can only do so much, right? Love your post! Have fun!
