First Xmas Card of the Season

I took the day off from book stuff to make cards and do laundry. I decided I wanted to make some Xmas Cards.

From Paper Making, Cards, Crafts

I'm very pleased with them. I have no idea if I'll be sending them out or selling them or what. I just know I wanted to make them.

The Cardinal punch design is from Frenchie's website.

Books & Cards

I've been extremely busy lately. We released our book "Undertaker Tales"!!! You can find it at Amazon now.

And we're getting ready for the big Halloween Party on the 29th.

Plus we have plans for a couple of Xmas books that should be quite interesting. It's an ambitious move on our part as it gives us about a month to put it all together. More about that later.

I've been making lots of cards lately.

These are cards from the swap (Top L to R - Jess B, Shirley P, Teresa H, Stacey G) They're all so fantastic!

These are my contributions to the swap. I made two because Drew never makes his but insists on being included. (HUH????)

From Paper Making, Cards, Crafts

These are a couple of experiments. A pumpkin box and a candle shade. By the time I was done with them I was so ticked off that I gave them to Stacey, who adored them. That's why she's a BFF!

This is card #1 for the next swap. It should be a secret, but I show people anyway. I'm very pleased with these.

And this is card #2 (because you know Drew won't do it!) I blatantly stole this idea/design from Lorri Heiling at Confessions of a Stamping Addict. And she got the turkey idea from Lynn Pratt at Stamp-N-Design.

I'm exhausted.

Ginny & Larry's Wedding Card

Our good friends Ginny & Larry got married today. This was the card I made for them. They have a great sense of humor and I think they'll really like it. The design idea was completely lifted from the internet. I should say where, but I can't remember or find it now. My bad.

I will likely make more in the future, but honestly, it was a pain in the butt. One that I am glad I endured because this card cracks me up!

The wedding was beautiful and the food at the Sunset was great. We had a wonderful time! Congrats to a lovely bride and handsome groom!
