A Special Gift

Hi everyone!

How are things going with you all?  I'm blessed.  No major illnesses or catastrophes in my immediate family that I know of, so I'm happy.  Oh, I forgot, there is a little setback in one of my son's life but with prayer I think things will work itself out.

Can you believe that Christmas is just around the corner(are we forgetting about Thanksgiving. I've already started making my Christmas cards.  I  can no longer send out store bought Christmas cards.  People expect handmade cards from me at all times.  Does anyone else have that dilemma?

Below is one of my first Christmas card that I will be sending out (I don't know to who yet). I thought this image from QKR-Special delivery was so appropriate for the sentiment.  Tell me what you think!

Materials used:
Sentiment is a Rubber stamp by Stampendous
Design Paper is from My Minds Eye Christmas Pack
Digi stamp by QKR (Special delivery)
Copic Markers
Bazzill card stock for card base
Bow made using WeR Memory Keepers Envelope Punch board
Adhesive Cut out borders by K&Company

Tote bag time

Hello fellow crafters,

My interest is turning back into sewing and quilting.  Here are some of the things I have been working on.  Sewing has always been my first love.  Paper crafting fulfills my need for immediate gratification.

This is a Tote Bag.  I think it turned out great! 

Love making this Baby Quilt. (not finished photo) I think I'll be making more!
