Christmas Cards

I decided to send out homemade Christmas cards this year, not realizing what I was getting myself into, and have finished the first five. I got them sent out-I don't know how many more I have to go, but I hope I get them all done before New Year's Day! These are two from the first set I did. I varied the tree a little, one has little rhinestones for the decorations, the other has stickles. I hand-colored the lights around the card with Bic pens.

Chayce sent us a picture of him from his cell phone. He has really slimmed down and looks great. He said Missouri is so cold, he hates it there. The weather starts out cold and just gets colder. Plus the base is in a mountanous (sp?) area and gets all the wind so they get the wind chill, too. He misses everyone and wishes he were at home. He loves the army, though, and is thinking of going regular army when he's done 6 months in the reserves. I'm not sure how I feel about that-there's a lot of traveling involved and I have already missed him so much with him being gone just this short amount of time. I don't know about having him live away from me.........

Anniversary card

I FINALLY broke through my fibro-fog and came up with an idea for my dad's anniversary card-before the anniversary. I was starting to think I was just going to have to buy a card and send it. I used the George cart to make the heart and outlined it in stickles to make it standout. It's simple, but I think they'll like it.

Forever Yours..........Faithfully

I love this song by Journey. It is kind of bizarre that while I was making the layout and before I had made the title the song came on the radio. I had already decided to use it for the title, but it was weird hearing it play while I was already singing it in my head. I really like this layout. i think it is probably going to be my favorite.


I did this page about when Frank and I started dating. I used SCAL for the shoe-I used it since the shoe shop was involved in our meeting.
