Greetings from rainy, and attempting to sleet or snow, Missouri!'s pretty windy, and that makes it seem even colder!
Here I sit, though, warm and cozy with a cup of cappucino, so I am certainly not complaining!
I do love living where the seasons change! (Remind me of this in late February, okay?)


The cards above are all new stamps from Inkadinkado.
I'm preparing for a class, and these are just a few of the prototypes that I'm thinking about using. Our LSS carries only Inkadinkado stamps, so that is what I use for classes.
The theme for December's class will be 'easy to mass produce', so must stay very simple!
Would love some feedback! (On the easel card, I plan to use a Ghirardelli chocolate square where the button is!)
Feel free to critique through comments or email, and if you have any 'quick and easy' holiday ideas that you think my ladies would like, feel free to share!
Well, have a great evening - I'm off to set up the sewing machine. DD is coming to learn how to use it!
The weekend is approaching!

Food for thought: Is it okay to use an AM radio after noon???

What wonderful cards!! You're a busy card maker!!


I like all the cards, especially the first one (blue). I don't know why but I tend to gravitate toward blue and silver for Christmas cards. Poor DH loves the traditional green and red, oh, but wait, exactly who is making our Christmas cards?!?!?

I want to come to your class! All of your cards are wonderful! I especially like the easel card... I'm just drawn to those! I love your "new" look for your blog! So festive!

Nikki Schmaltz said...

Wow! I'm so excited for you to do a class. Your girls are going to love these! Especially the one with Chocolate! Of course, if that is how you hold up the easel that may not work. Atleast not on will be gone! Thanks for the lovely comment on my blog. You made my day!

Dawnll said...

Oh these are beautiful sweetie! I would love to come and make some cards.I also read CHOCOLATE how can you go wrong. Missed hopping by lately so I stopped to stay HELLO!

Lisa Hjulberg said...

Hey Patti! I've been thinking about you daily... I'm just so far behind on blog visits and emailing, it isn't even funny. Have I mentioned that I need to retire??? Ha!

Looks like you've been quite prolific in the beautiful card making category. All are so lovely, Patti, and obviously made with love.

I'm so glad you had a great Thanksgiving and got to spend it with your son. Christmas will be here before you know it, and he'll be back for more of his mom's love and apple pie.

Please email me when you can and give me THE NEWS.

Love and hugs,

WOW, Patti you have certainly been a busy, busy crafter. Each of these cards are wonderful. I especially love your easel card, but truly, all of them are wonderful.

Gorgeous cards, Patti! How clever to use a chocolate square on the easel card! Wish I lived closer so I could take your class.
