Cedar and Pines CardMaking Workshop

The Cedar and Pines Cardmaking Workshop features this cute manger scene. It’s a perfect way to get started on your Holiday Cards (because somehow, Christmas is only a few weeks away). Check out this cute card my friend, Mary, from CardzTV:

Here is what’s in the kit:

And a few more projects you can make with it, if you use CTMH’s instructions:

The Cedar and Pine Cardmaking Workshop offers some beautiful cards to get you started on your cardmaking for the Season. They are easy to adjust if you you want to add more or simplify. Need help? Let me know!

So Grateful

Life has been super busy the past two weeks, with Jeff gone, I’m so grateful for all of my blessings. Life shows now signs of slowing.We are headed out for two back-to-back scrapbooking weekends! Then it’s Thanksgiving!

Here’s a card to send off, to let someone know how grateful you are for them. Below is the card before you add all embelling. It looks wonderful. The stamp set is S1911 Family Time, the November Stamp of the Month (SOTM). You can get it for $18.95 or $5.00 with a $50.00 purchase from my website.

The background is made with the stamps. I love 2-step stamping. Have a base flower with the top flower. It’s beautiful, right? And so versatile. While I used the autumn colors, you can use Spring or Summer colors very easily.

Don’t forget the Kit of the Month that’s free when you get the Stamp of the Month for $5.00! =)

I’m so grateful for all of you as my customers. So many of you have become friends and family in your own right! =)
