CARDS November 2009 Publications

Hello my friends! Sorry I do not have a new card to share with you today, it's been busy around here. I may have to slow down a tiny bit on the blog postings, at least until after Christmas. I do hope you don't mind too much. After the holidays I plan on going back to posting daily.

However, I do have a link and a couple published cards to share with you today. Check this out, over at the CARDS Blog they are showcasing one of my Christmas tags. Here are a couple cards that were published in the November 09 Issue of CARDS Magazine...
This one was created using a dollar stamp I had picked up at the craft store. The polka dot pattern paper is from PTI Raspberry Fizz Mix and the sentiment is from Green Thumb.
This one is a mix of Making Memories (pattern paper, felt letters and ribbon from the Noteworthy Collection) and PTI (cardstock, buttons and With Sympathy stamp set). The little butterfly is a Cuttlebug Die Cut. I really like this layout, one of these days I will have to give it another try.

So, unfortunately (even with the best intentions) my Christmas tree is not set up yet. This is unusual for me, my tree is always set up right after Thanksgiving. The tree is buried too far into the garage for my hubby to get to right now, so this weekend he will dig it out for me.

Glad you stopped by today!
