Happy New Year 2015

Happy New Year!  Each year starts with such excitement and hope - who knows what this year will bring.

To my friends and family - I wish the best for each of you and I made a card to let you know.  

The paper is from the Capture line from Basic Grey, and the technique for the leaves was designed by Kelly Goree.  I am using the same technique for the "money tree" for my father's birthday - he is so hard to shop for (since he buys what he wants, when he wants it) - so a "money tree" is the perfect gift.

Merry Christmas 2014

A few months ago, I took a Christmas card class from the talented Julie Ebersole. She kept us so busy - we made over 16 cards during the class, and in the end I had scraps from all the cards and a partial bonus card that I started and did not finish in class. 

This is the scrap card -part of it is Julie's design, part of it is just my inability to throw bits away.

May this month be filled with joy and laughter, may you not have to run to the shopping mall at the last minute and may all your baking turn out perfectly  As for me, I still need a recipe for the cookie exchange and cute packaging, so I am off surfing the web to find just the "right" treat!
