Happy New Year!

new-year-four

I hope you had a fabulous Christmas and that you got to spend the holiday with family and friends.  There’s nothing like that warm feeling of being surrounded by the ones you love to make the season brighter.   Now that the presents have been opened.. it’s time to look back at 2016 – and reflect on events past.  It’s also a time to look forward to 2017 with wishes of all good things.  Here’s a toast to 2017!   My card features lots of sparkle and shine.  I’ve added silver glitter paper and sequins […]

Prince of Peace Christmas Card Set

Wow! Christmas is coming up quick!  While I do love many things about Christmas (especially the real reason for the season), the abundance of red is just not my style. So, going with a completely non-traditional color scheme of blues, browns, and golds, I created this watercolor Christmas card set: Since I was creating a card set, I did everything assembly-line style.

It’s a pretty simple card to execute, but what I love most is the texture:  The trees […]

Fall Thank You

Hello: We had a wonderful time at Thanksgiving and I made this card for my son and daughter-in-law with whom we spent the holiday.  I used The Twinery twine in the place of a ribbon on my card.  This was a fun one to make.  Check out The Twinery store for all your twinetastic needs.     Here is a close of up the matching envelope.   Hugs, Anita

Take A Hike

stag-three

Did you know it’s National “Take A Hike” day?  This time of year a walk in the woods is a feast for the eyes.  The colorful foliage in every shade you can imagine looks amazing!  If you’re lucky you might just catch a glimpse of some wildlife too! This Graceful Stag die surrounded by all the beautiful colors of nature seemed like just the thing for Take A Hike day!   I started with a panel of cardstock that was just a little bit bigger than the window opening of the die cut.   I […]
