Been busy the last month or so. As some may know, my hubby had a couple of surgeries which left him in great need of recovery. I had to learn some medical things, being a nurse, etc. We are hoping the upcoming surgery planned for Jan. 7 will help these challenges come to an end.
Hence, there have been no posts showing what I've been making. In between fixing meals, doing extra laundry, changing dressings and lots of etc. I have made a few cards. I would like to show some of them to you and maybe you can try some if you haven't done so already.
Tree" stamp set from Stampin Up. The right one also uses SU stamps, but not sure the name of the set. It is a gate style folded card. An oval was cut from the middle. The same shape for the bird to sit on in the inside. The yellow one uses the same lattice die as the card above with the cross. This time in yellow and the whole design is used. A die was used to cut out the shape, the lattice glued underneath and a piece of vellum under that. Ribbon was tied around at the bottom.
I hope you enjoyed the photo show and will try maybe a new technique or just revisit one you haven't done in a while. Most ideas come from videos on YouTube and can easily be found in some version. There are a lot of talented people out there who share their talent. Thank them for that.

Matthew 1:21 "She will give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus, because he will save his people from their sins."
The angel was speaking to Joseph telling him of what was to happen. His fiance, Mary was to have a baby boy who was conceived by the Holy Spirit. This baby will grow up to be the Savior of mankind. We celebrate this baby's birth at Christmas as the most precious baby ever born. I pray that if you haven't asked Jesus to be your Savior, that you would not put that off. It is the most important event in your life. May you have a blessed Christmas and remember the reason for the season.
