Never to early!


In my humble opinion it is never to early to start making Christmas cards. This year even more so since my sister is taking me on a cruise in the middle of November. This is the card I made for the color challenge this week. Red, Chocolate Chip and kraft. The one thing on this card that is worth mentioning is that I bleached the mans sweater. I love the look, to me it looks like a fisherman's knit sweater.

It's been awhile




Haven't posted for over a month but that doesn't mean I haven't been busy in the cave. I've actually knocked out about 35 cards in the last month. Today I am posting this one, I was looking at the SU spring/summer 2009 catty and on page 94 I saw a card I liked the layout they used. That's where I started but it really is a different take on the card. I like how it turned out, especially how the friend to friend sentiment sits right above the heart to heart sentiment. This card took about 5 minutes to put together, that's my kind of card! Let me know what you think.
