Cards For Christmas

The card above is from a dear Technique Junkie friend, Beth Ullman. Her blog is just wonderful too. Check it out! I just realized I may not have been letting you all know about the blogs of my RAK friends. Beth has embossed the Holly shown with a beautiful Light Pearl Gold embossing powder. She has added gold glitter to the start and end of your words and the star and tree are gold brads. There is a magical charm about her card. Thank you so much for thinking of me Beth!

This card is from Brenda Elliott. She is the owner of Stampers Alley in Mooresville, NC. Her store is just wonderful and if you haven't stopped by to see it you should, next time you are in the neighborhood. She also has great classes for stampers too. Thanks so much for thinking of me Brenda! Hope your birthday and holidays were filled with wonderful things.

Okay, this card from Cindy Motherway, also known as 'Mothermark', is just a hoot!......and so is Cindy! She also has a beautiful blog you should check out. She does cards using a teapot theme. You really need to see it.....and oh, she tells a story as she presents her artistic creations too. For her last card she has also listed the 10 Stages of Stamping Obsession so you can find where you are in your addiction~~~

The above beautiful card was created by a dear local friend, Jackie Parkins, who also has a blog that is great. She also teaches at Stamper's Alley in Mooresville. Jackie is a really creative stamper as you can see. Thanks so much Jackie for the thoughts and the card!

Last, but definitely not least, is this wonderful 'Spotlight' card from Karen Vandivier~ She also teaches at the Stamper's Alley store. Thanks so much Karen for thinking of me. I love your satin ribbon and am going in search of some tomorrow.

I want to thank all of the above again. You each made my holiday even more bright. I hope yours was wonderful and that you have a very Happy Healthy New Year!!! Onward to Valentine's Day and Spring!!!!

Thank you all for stopping by 'the blog' to look and share.
