Let me say first & foremost, I have been watching the news on all the devastation on the East Coast this week! It is heart breaking to see all the damage & to know there were lives lost! So many people displaced! And many have lost so much! My prayers are with you!
"I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee." Hebrews 13: 5c
My cards were made with: SU- Bells & Boughs & Designer Frames Folders. I used a gold Calligraphy pen by Zig & SU Markers & EK Success Millennium Collection Pens.
This was a FUN SET to make! A few things I discovered, the little embossing folder left the "Made in China" on the INSIDE of the card! Eek! So, I suggest adding a piece of paper to the inside when you emboss, between the backside of the folder & your card! I also used some EK Success Millennium Collection Pens to go over the image after coloring them in so, you could see the detail & they would stand out more!
Just a little Design lesson here: My cards are featuring the "QUIET SPACE." Using the white to make the focal point the thing that draws your attention & nothing else! You don't have to use white either, but other solid colors. This Design Element is GREAT for CAS!
Short & Sweet this week! Have you started on your Christmas Cards yet? I am a LONG WAY from sitting down & doing my FINAL CARDS! At this point, I just want to PLAY!!!!!!!
And then in the play, just MAYBE I'll decide which card to send out this year! I like to send everyone the same card! I also like to try new techniques at this time! (Or at least new to me! ALWAYS trying to learn techniques! Never stop learning! )
HOPE you enjoyed this post this week! Off to PLAY some more!
Comments are ALWAYS APPRECIATED!!!!!!!!!!!!
P.S. Just a little money saving tip for you that I discovered: Do you use a DISHWASHER? Then you'll want to know this! Here's a recipe for
HOMEMADE DISHWASHER DETERGENT!

AND guess what? I think it works BETTER than the leading brands out there! I had an issue with my dishwasher; I'd clean out the filters & I'd STILL have an odor! NOT with using THIS Homemade Dishwashing Detergent!
Hope you find this helpful!
