If I don't post between now and the new year ... it is because we are going to Boston from Michigan by way of the middle of Florida. AND ... we are doing it in the middle of a snowstorm with a husband, 2 cats, 3 birds, and a dog. I am taking my stamping stuff along and will be ready to post a bunch of new cards and such in January.
Anyway, this is the card I made to tuck in Mike's briefcase on his last day of work in Michigan before we head to Florida for the winter.
Gotta love this bird! But it sure does show that I cut him off at the ankle because he was too long. I think I will go back and stamp another foot and raise it on dimensionals. Then I will want to stamp another beak and raise it up. And another tail. And another wing. And now my foot will need to be raised even higher ...

The scan doesn't show the bright orange carrot noses... and ..Is the red a little much? Trying to decide if I should keep the red or not.
No kissy face at our house, I have developed a whopping cold and am sneezing and snurfling... but when I saw this tag I had to make one like it. This is a direct case, copy and steal everything , and I have absolutely no creative genius going but isn't it the cutest thing you have ever seen! GO see this lady's blog, her name is Ellen Kemper and she does darling stuff. If you go to see the original, you will have to scroll down to Dec 11th ... but you will enjoy the scroll because this lady does some CUTE CUTE stuff.
I was featured as a pick of the day for Dec. 13th on Miss Boo's blog! She chooses her favorites off Splitcoast every day and complies a list that makes it easy to see the best of the best. And Gosh, I was included with all the rest!
Isn't this just the cutest idea! With my new cuttlebug folder it was quick and easy. Not that I want cards to be quick and easy, but when something simple is this cool, I gotta try it. Here is where I got the original idea --
Here is a direct quote from Donna C but I love the sentiment and can't say it any better than she did ...
