Best Wishes

Our assistant pastor and his family were called away from our church.  They are a beautiful young couple and will be missed.  This is the Christmas/Going Away card that I created for them.  I love this sentiment from the "Make it Count" stamp set.  It was so fitting for this situation as this family was with our church for a season and now they will start a new season of life in Indiana.

The papers are from one of last year's DCWV paper stacks.  I love the colors together.  I'm such a paper hoarder, so I've vowed not to purchase any paper unless I need a specific color for a particular layout.  Of course when I get to see the new CTMH papers this vow will likely have an exception...

Last of Evensong Cards...

I don't believe I have very much of the Evensong paper packet papers left.   Most of the paper was used for Christmas layouts from 2008, but I had a few pieces of paper left that worked great for the Christmas cards I made this year.  All of my cards were kept simple and this one is no different.  I stamped the baby Jesus image in bamboo ink and then the Scripture in barn red ink.  The snowflake is from a Cuttlebug die.

Snowman Love

This is another card that I made using papers from the 2008 CTMH Christmas paper packet called Evensong.  The snowflake paper is just cardstock randomly stamped using a stamp set called "Let it Snow" (at least I think that is the name).  I kept it simple, but still am pleased with how the card turned out.  These are cards I will use as thank you cards for gifts our family receives.
