long time no posts...

This super cute card came to me from Sandy I've had it and the cards below for some time now and just got around to photographing them all yesterday.
This one was an Christmas RAK from kitty at scs.
This one is another SCS RAK card from Linda ( Studbo )
These came to me from Meg, Nancy and Deb ( Ladies we have been swapping atc together for a few years now)
These cards came to me from Ladies at the Stamp Shack. ( In case your wondering i only took pictures of the hand made cards) :)
These cards came to me from Ladies at two peas ( stampers )
These cards came to me from ladies at the sunroom scrappers library.
This cute stamp was in my stocking, so its just on cheap white cardstock with olive ranger archival ink with some red stickles on the heart. there is some clear stickles on the red cardstock scallops and they are about 3 inches square. ( going to have a head start on Christmas next year haha)
This was the first card made from scraps of the cards below. there are some challenges at peas ( a week ago?) that were to use things you hoard, and to make Christmas Thank-you cards. ( these cards have been done for a week but, no they still have not been mailed)
This one i may set aside as an "Christmas Card" for next year. its 5X7. the Joy is stamped on curious iridescent cryogen white cover stock with versafine satin red then heat embossed with clear detail powder. the ribbons from May Arts, the PP is from SEI Holly Lane Sugarplums. it has a bit of gold bling on it. I tend to hoard shimmery papers and cardstocks.
These were the first 3 thank-you's i had done, i ended up liking the fourth card best and ended up with 7 like that.
the pale green shimmery cardstock is ( i don't remember) haha but, the same store that sells the cryogen white sells it. ( so does paperzone in Portland) The Thank-you (SU) is stamped on an mini die cut from an red sizzix die with 12 little tags on it. ( I have never used that either) the red ribbon is offray and the gold thread is SU.
the green cardbase is bazzill cardstock.
Okay so since the last time I posted, i started getting really itchy, then on monday am ( New Years eve) i woke up to my ear being swollen like a balloon, the ear dr.'s here are on Vacation (or in surgery all day) and the surgeon in Portland was also on vacation. so i went to a walk-in clinic and that diagnosis was a) I'm either allergic to the antibiotic ointment, or b) may be infected) or c) both. this was not too productive, but i left with an prescription for antibiotics and by the third dose my ear was looking like an ear again. its still tender at the very top of it and not as itchy. I think its growing all new skin. the only part that still a little sore and tender is the part where your glasses would sit on the top of the ear. I haven't been wearing mine much, but i may have started too soon with them. who knows. Two more days... we go back to Portland for the hook up on tuesday the 8th. :)

Awesome collection of cards! I love looking at all of them....
They ones you rec'd, and the ones you made!

Cute new stamp, too. About that square scallop (red cs) - is it a punch or did you get the nestabilities??????
