Ode to the Joy... of cards being done.

Yep, done. Finished.  Completed.  Ended.... not mailed yet... darn!  I was on a roll there for a minute.

Here they are in all there glory.  I played with techniques, I played with color combos, I kept it traditional, I added bling.  You name it and I think I tried it.  Well, not all of the techniques.

I put a number by each.  If you have a favorite, please let me know which one.  Yes, I'm scrounging for comments and this is a cheap way of doing it.  I have no pride but.... I'm done with my cards!!!

I am getting slowly caught up in my real life.  I hope to be chatting with everyone on the PTI forum very soon.  If I am absent from time to time, it isn't your fault.  I have a major project I am involved with at work at it sucks time out of my life like you wouldn't believe.

Do have a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all my Christian friends.  Hope Hanukkah rocked for all my Jewish friends and peace and good health be yours this coming year for all the atheists and undecideds.  Most of all, I wish everyone happiness and joy in your life.

Love ya all!

I love #1, 19 and 22!

Hope you are well and Happy holidays to yo!

Ingrid Danvers said...'ve been really busy. I haven't made that many cards this year. I didn't feel like it because the Dutch mailmen have been on strike off and on. Your cards are beautiful.

All your cards are lovely, Ingrid. I especially like all your Christmas tree cards. I can't select just one. My favorite is a tie between #4 and #26.

I'm sorry, it should read "Patti"

Patti, I know what you mean. I just posted all of my Christmas cards on my blog as I haven't had a chance to do it earlier - too busy!! But I did get them into the mail.
Your cards are ALL beautiful! How could I choose just one?!! Here are some of my favourites:
#2, 4, 6, 10, 11, 13 - Tree images.
#16. I like how you curved the Christmas sentiment.
#19 - I love how you used the dove by hanging it from the bow - so sweet!
#22 - Is this gold embossing? It is just stunning with the Take Three images.
#25, 28, 29 - The snowflakes are so colourful and fun.

They are all lovely, but my favorites are 6 (love the gold embossing and pearls), 22 (the take three in gold is beautiful against the maroon), and 30 (I like the mat stack(?) layers and the ribbon running through the Happy Chanukah piece)!

Wow Patty! You've been busy! I love that they're all different :o) My fave is #15 - what a cool way to combine Wreath and Mat Stack 3! Adore!!

Terri said...

You have been busy! Great job on all of them. I especially like the flowers on #7. What did you use to make those? Sorry you have had to work so much. Hope you get some time off soon.

1, 2 & 22 are my favorites. You have been busy busy. I don't even have my cards started yet. Thinking about changing to New Year's cards since I am so far behind. However, I did get Birthday Binders with 12 cards each (6 binders) done. Whew, thank goodness. Great job.

My goodness, you've been busy! Such gorgeous work! My favorites are 6, 11, 19, 20. Congrats on getting your cards done! I'm still finishing all of mine!

Whoa!!! That's like 30 posts in one! Thanks very much, I had fun looking through all these for the last 15 minutes or so.

My favourites; 2,3,4,5,10,11,19,22,23,25.
I don't think I could pick just one out of this list, these are all so great. I love the big tree images, and the red and white images, and the one where you put fine linen embellishments on green, and the snowflakes, and the nontraditional coloured one with Green Boutique PP... Great job! Beautiful cards!!

Wow! They're gorgeous, every one. Favorite??? Er, how about #8. I'm really partial to that one. And #5 is a close second. Have a great holiday!
