Thank You Note

I needed a thank you note for a friend who let us stay at their home over the holidays. My friend has a passion for antique doors and her husband is a gardener who is growing lemon trees on his patio, so I was trying to find a way to incorporate a door and lemons in the card. Here is what I came up with - I used a SVG cut file from SVGcuts - Fairy Cottage Gate Card. The stamps inside are from Penny Blacks "Bubbly" and "Heartfelt" stamp sets (colored with alcohol inks). The paper is "Oh My Lemony" from Paper Studio. I used my Cricut Maker to cut the files. I'm pretty happy with the results except for the front. I feel like it needs something but I can't figure out what, so I just quit!

Christmas Crafts

Christmas is a fun time for paper crafts! Here are some of my creations this month. Most of these were made using the new Cricut Maker:

Love this Christmas Paper!

I've been making cards from paper that I got from the local hobby store. I used the Triple Window die for the bottom one and Lawn Fawn stamps for the top. I colored with alcohol inks.

Edwards Christmas Village

I have to brag on my brother, David Edwards, and his wife, June. They live in Lewes, Delaware, and put on a very nice Christmas Village celebration FREE to the community. All they ask for is a donation for the local food ministry - Jusst Sooup. I am so proud of these two! Here are some photos from this year:
