You've Got Mail

Since I haven't been able to get my mind wrapped around making any cards the last few days, I thought I'd show you one of the Christmas cards that I made for this year and sent out. 




The main thing I liked about this was that it was easy to mail - no bulk and no extra postage.  You just gotta love those kinds of cards.  The image is from Just Inklined and I think everything on the card is pretty self explanatory.

I'm really hoping some kind of inspiration hits me in the head in the next day or so.  I just seem to be in a huge slump around here. I do have some exciting news though!  I'm now officially a Belli Girl design team member!  Come check out the Creative Belli  blog and join in on all the fun.  We have a new challenge every two weeks - and you still have time to enter the current challenge themed Merry Christmas.  Also, be sure and pop over to all the design team members blogs....I'm very honored to be on the design team with these fantastic artists!

Sorry I haven't been around to everyone's blog lately......just still too much going on with kids and grandchildren popping in every day.  Will the holidays ever officially be over with!!!  I'll get back in the groove in the next few days and will be by to visit.

(Edited 1-1-12 - This card is a CASE from I card I saw on Linda's blog.  If you get a chance be sure and check out her wonderful blog.

Thanks for stopping by........

Another beautifully colored creation! Very pretty! Congrats on the DT and glad they recognized your talent! I think we all went into temporary shut down for crafting after Christmas! I have some ideas floating around and new supplies to play with, but there seems to be too many other things taking my time away!
