Window with a View

I have a friend in the hospital, in the city. I have made several cards for others to send to him, but I made this one so I can send it. I imagine his view is more cityscape than landscape. So, I'm sending this to give him a little touch of home to look at.

Warm Winter Wishes

I started out just making a card with the sled on it. Then, one thing led to another and before I knew it, I had four cards! Actually, it took a couple of days to carve out enough time to create all of them. Cutting those little pine cones took a bit longer - but so worth it. Also, because I wasn't sure how the items were going to be placed on the three remaining cards, I cut each of those images.

Wonderland Greetings

I am so happy with everything about this card! I had a vision and I was able to put it to paper. The brick wall was a bit of a contrast with the trees, so I decided to stamp it with Hardwood. Can you believe it? The separation between the wood planks line up perfectly with the separation between the bricks!

I printed "Greetings from Lake Tahoe" from my computer and cut it using the Washi Label punch.

You're the Friend

It's been a while since I've posted anything. Between having a mega-cold, going on a fun vacation, then getting another mega-cold (yep, two times), I haven't made the time to upload anything. I have been making cards, but slacking on the upload.

Getting back into the swing of things, I'm posting this card I made for a wonderful, giving woman, and friend. She is truly going above and beyond, unselfishly, helping someone else in need.

I found the box design at addINKtive designs.
