Sympathy cards

Here's an addition to my Calligraphy Cards.  Unfortunately, I've needed to use far too many sympathy cards this year.


All stamps used here are from Inkadinkado

A Christmas Collection

It's that time of year again.  Time to think about Christmas.  Time to turn on the twinkle lights on the tree as dusk creeps in.  It's time--well, past time, really--to start drawing on this year's Christmas card, for the days go by faster and faster each year. 

This time of year also calls for lots of special little notecards for thank-you  notes and such.  Here's a collection of some of my past favorites.

These snowman cards are offered on my shop at

Here's a snowman from Inkadinkado on a glittery white card.


Here's my favorite from last year...


A whole gift set!

This was the first card made with my new Cricut machine, a 2011 Christmas gift from my brother, Mark.


This was an accident that turned into a favorite, using the winter trees stamp from Hero Arts

Thanks for visiting!
Make it a Merry Christmas!

Calligraphy Greeting Cards

A few days ago, I decided to combine several loves of mine...writing, calligraphy, painting and cardmaking.

The first is inspired by my aunt Nancy.  She always says, "Love you more," as we say our goodbyes on the telephone.  If I beat her to it, she counters with "Love you MOST!"

So far, this is one of my favorites.
