Here are some more wonderful homemade cards I received this year.
From Teresa Kirkwood – this card is beautiful and notice that Teresa also beautifully decorated the back to tie in with the sentiment on the front – very clever and lovely!
Isn't this adorable? It's from my friend and downline Debbie Tompkins (Port Alice). Debbie used the Scallop die from the Big Shot and I just love the way the circle makes the swirl in the snowman look more frantic. The swirl of snow is covered in glitter, of course!
This is a very pretty card from my friend and downline Barb Marples. Barb used some designer paper and colours from last year's In Colour line to create this elegant design. Love the snowflake cut out and popped up in the center of the main image. This is so fresh – really feels like snow.
From Jennifer Miller, my friend and downline in Kelowna. Jen used the Season of Joy stamp set (thankfully not retired!) along with some pretty designer paper from last year. I love the way Jen used the markers and the direct to rubber method to create a multi-coloured main image. So pretty!
I love this card from my friend Leslie G in Whitby. Leslie used the tree from Mr. Twigster and the Torn Edge technique. Doesn't this just feel like a little "Charlie Brown" tree? Love the colours and the whole look and feel of this card – another winner from Leslie!
This stunning card is from my friend and downline Dayanna Donng – sorry it's kind of blurry. The center image is a series of scallop circles formed into a 3D circle – this is really pretty in person and so different. Very elegant!
Lastly here is a Hannukah/Christmas card from my friend and downline Jessica Devlin. I sure wish it looked like this outside now! The sentiment "The season of friendship lasts forever" is so true especially when it comes to Jessica – such a great woman and friend to me!
I hope you've enjoyed sseeing the cards that my friends have sent to me this year. I have a fairly small house and it's decorated with lots of garland and figurines so there isn't a lot of space to display my cards. I came up with this way to show them off…
I strung some hemp across the window (I have four huge windows in a 500 square foot room – crazy!) and then attached the cards with little clothes pins.
