Last Chance!

Just wanted to send out a reminder that today is the last day to sign up for my holiday give away, so if you'd like to join in and receive a few hand made goodies, along with some other surprises, please sign up by leaving your comment
Do you send holiday greetings this time of the year?
Do you make your cards?
Do you create a family 'news letter'?
It's been a couple years since I have been up to making my cards, but when I do start early enough (it's usually time that bites me in the butt!) I really enjoy doing it. The above was the last one I did, I think.

This one is from a number of years ago.
Each was made by collaging holiday images from catalogs that were selling Christmas cards and I recycled them into my own cards. I hope I get to make cards again next year - maybe I should start now!

We are battening down the hatches in preparation for the first blizzard of the season. I must admit, though it isn't great news for retailers, or those who were planning on doing belated holiday shopping this last weekend before Christmas (me!) I am very excited!

Let it snow,
let is snow,
let is snow!!


  1. I like the first card. It is cool looking...Your tree is very festive looking..I hope you have a good weekend. In the snow...If you get the snow.

  2. me too, Katelen! They are very different, from very different times :) It's looking like the snow is a sure thing. how much? we'll see, but 12 inches is supposedly a real possibility -
    woo hoo!!! xo

  3. Here's my contribution to snow worship:

  4. hello
    i want to offer you an blog award because i like your blog

  5. I havn't made or sent cards in aeons but I am enjoying looking at yours. Oh for snow at christmas time!

  6. I have a card making kit that I bought, just because I wanted to use a few items on one of my art pieces, so I guess I could make them, but don't know if I can be bothered! Lol. Love your tree! It's every so slightly unusual lol.

    Guess what? We're having blizzards here too! The snow has been falling horizontally, if you know what I mean! It's great cos I'm inside and don't intend going out. So, yay!

  7. beautiful cards! I hope you are enjoying your snow! and that you are feeling MUCH better! Buon Natale!

  8. Hey Karin,

    I love the cards and I especially love your tree.... it's awesome!!

  9. Thumper- Bambi ahhhh! Love your tree- non alergen tree- good idea!

  10. what a cool tree - where in the world did you find it?? I wish I could make something like it, but that's very wishful thinking.
    I like the idea of making cards from recycled stuff - I save all the ones we get and cut them up for ornaments, etc. The gift keeps on giving:)


Thanks for visiting and leaving your thoughts!
