Three more Christmas cards

Three more Christmas cards for our upcoming class. the first one has a battery tea light behind the fold which shines through the vellum-backed sentiment. the card folds flat for mailing. The second card is a quick and easy one using the "Country Landscape" Memory Box die. The "Peace" stamp is an old wood mount that someone gave me a while ago so it's not available for purchase, however you are welcome to stamp off a few while you are here for class if you like.
The last card is a new stamp from "Our Daily Bread" designs and is already out of stock. I'm placing my final order on Thursday, so if you would like one of these, please let me know ASAP.

Funky Christmas

I used a stamp set called "Funky Christmas" for the first two cards shown here for our next class. As soon as I saw this set I know it would look great heat embossed and I really like the results. My picture taking is horrible today so I apologize for that ...they do look much better in real life, honest!
The last card was made using Memory Box "Grand Merry Christmas" die. This is a good one if you need to do a bunch of cards in a hurry. The die is the exact width of a standard card. I also used the elf hat from the mini hats set and an ornament border die. You can see I was rushing to make this sample because it's a little crooked! I need to get busy making some birthday cards as November is a big month for birthdays among my family AND friends. I'll be placing the last order (before I move) for Memory Box dies on November 15th, so please let me know ASAP if there anything you need. I just unpacked an order yesterday and half the dies are gone already!!! Only five more weeks till the big move ...YIKES!

E-mail issues

I received quite a few "undelivered" e-mails after sending out the monthly newsletter this week. All of the were from Yahoo or Rogers addresses. If you didn't get yours and would like to ...let me know and I'll try again. Here's the message I got:
