Beautiful RAKs And A Unique Site




Is the above scene just too grand!! Well, if you like it, click on it and go to a site that has wonderful glitter images for every occasion. Most are free too! I fell in love with it and spent a lot of time just looking. Wow! Be sure to get one small enough for your sidebar, if that is where you want to put it! I wanted the one above and it was too big, so as you can see, I did find a smaller one. Have fun! This special site also has a lot of food for the soul and things to think about!



The RAK below was sent to me by my friend Barbara Riefner and what a treat~ Santa himself wishes me holiday greetings. Thanks so much Barb for the beautiful and sparkly card~!


The next one is from Connie Thorson and her friend Judy Kleinrock, local friends. Connie used an American Art Stamp and I love them. How pretty and slim. I need to pay attention to that! Thanks so much, Connie and Judy for the beautiful card.


What a great week for cards, as you all know. This next card is from a friend I made at the last stamp convention I attended. Thank you Darlene Green for this beautiful Poinsettia card. I am so sorry it doesn't scan well. It is the most beautiful color of red with a green leaf and it doesn't show well at all.


I loved my mail box this last week. This next card is from a Technique Junkie friend, Jackie Kalchert. It is done with the Pleated Paper technique and had the most gorgeous die and ribbon on it! Thanks so much Jackie for your thoughtfulness and great card!


This next card is special and precious too! It is Spirelli and definitely a work of art. It is from another local friend, Joyce Powel. She is special and has been under the weather lately. If you would please say a special prayer for her. Thank you so much Joyce for thinking of me when you have enough to do. Special thoughts and well wishes your way.

The last and definitely not the least is from Vaudene Tanaka. She is another Technique Junkie friend and has been very busy recovering from some surgery, and here she is sending me a card! Thank you so much Vaudene. I have been thinking of you too!


I want to thank all of you again for making the Christmas season all that much more special to me and for sharing a part of you with me. They are all so elegant and so wonderful. Hugs to you all.

Thanks to all of you for stopping by 'the blog' to look and share. I know I will post again before Christmas, but then again........ As the time draws near I wish all of you a very Happy, Merry, Healthy Christmas and New Year!!
