WOW!  I just looked at the date of my last's been more than 6 weeks.  And to top it off, I haven't even had time to check out and comment on all the creativity going on at the SplitCoast Stampers site.  I'll never be able to catch up!

While checking out SCS yesterday, I realized that I had uploaded some cards there that I hadn't put on this site.

I had uploaded lots of this MFT "Pure Innocence - Box of Love" image colored entirely with Copics, but "Coffestamper" reminded me how much fun it is to paper-piece the little girl's dress.  So I took the stamp out of its drawer and inked it up again.  Here are the 2 cards I made.

One of the gifts I love giving to family and friends at Christmas is a box of my cards.  I always put a note in the box that suggests that they "put whatever money they would have spent to buy each card into a container and to buy something for themselves (when all the cards are gone) with their 'saved' money."  I don't know if they do it, but they all tell me they love having a "stash" of cards for every occasion.

One thing I do know is that with 8 Great nieces and nephews under the age of 11, there are lots and lots of children's birthday parties to go to, so I always make sure those families have extra "kid" cards.  And, as the kids get older, they seem to be on more and more sports teams.  When I found this basketball paper, I knew I had to make some cards for those winter sports fans.

Thank you for looking,
