Hello!  Almost didn’t make my post for the day lol…I prevailed and ended up making 2 cards!!  I am so happy with how they turned out and it was nice to sit at my desk! I’ve been standing at my countertop for weeks because my desk was piled with months worth of stuff. It’s all nice and spiffy now for me to sit comfortably and craft away 🙂


I mentioned in a post the other day about trying to use some of my stamps in ABC order…lol.  This is the first one, A Banner Christmas, one I just *had* to have from the SU Holiday catalog and then never inked it up!  I used three stamps from the set tonight and will keep it on my desk until I use the other four. For both cards I used yesterday’s sketch posted at Sketch Frenzy Friday
