The first card is one I made at Liat's request; she wanted to give a card to the couple for whom she babysits. Since I had enough of everything, I made two of these cards, and the second one went off to California to a friend of mine. The ornament stamp is part of a Duet by Posh Impressions. I used alcohol inks for the teal background and the purple for the ornament. The ribbon is something I bought in 1995 I believe, when I was shopping for things to use on a Purim costume for Liat. It wasn't what I needed (I made her a Little Red Riding Hood costume) but I thought it was too pretty not to buy. So you see, I sometimes do use those things I hoard for years and years!
I know I (and probably everyone else) always say it, but I really do hope to get an earlier start on Christmas cards next year. There were so many people I wanted to send cards to, and I just ran out of time. I actually know people who make a few every month and by the time December comes around they are pretty much all set. I can't decide if I think that is wonderfully admirable or irritatingly efficient!
I am just about done showing photos of things I have done lately, so I'd better get busy making and doing new things to share.
