‘Tis the Season

Greetings blog friends (that sounds like I’m a martian or something!)… Anyway, I hope the morning of mid-week Wednesday finds you doing well. I am busy, busy, busy preparing for LOTS of upcoming events! I’m talking workshops, scrapbooking crops, classes, and craft fairs! All within the next three weeks. It’s all good. I’m so happy that my business has really been booming this year — I hope it continues into 2011. Believe it or not, when I was deciding what to post today I found myself thinking, “Oh I should post these Christmas cards soon because it’s getting late in the season.” Really? It’s only Nov. 3! As I mentioned in this post, though, I tend to get way ahead of myself with the seasons…. I’m already thinking about Valentine’s Day! Oh well. Today’s card is one of my favorite of this year. It includes our new Deck the Hall fabric (the scallop edge under the ribbon). It also has lots and lots of layers, which is always fun. I used the Winter Post stamp set (another one of my favorites!) Colors on this one are Cherry Cobbler, Always Artichoke and Very Vanilla – classic, I think… what about you?

This card here is a sample from one of my upcoming holiday card classes. The first one is on Wednesday, Sept. 29. There’s still time to RSVP if you’d like to come … just e-mail me ASAP. It will be held at the Chatham Community Center from 6 to 9 p.m. Each guest makes 10 cards (2 each of 5 designs) for $18… and a head start on the holidays… priceless! 🙂 I’m really excited about this fall. The new holiday mini catalog is fabulous with lots of new product including fabric, which works great with our Big Shot die-cutting machine. Keep an eye on the old blog-o as I will be featuring a fabric project that I
