Thanks for not giving up on me while I took a break from blogging the last week or so. I'm still super busy getting ready for Steve's big family party this weekend, so blogging will be sporadic for another week. Then things should settle down a little. In the meantime, I thought I'd try to post a few photos without doing the whole tutorial thing. I'll just list the supplies I used.
I had the most wonderful surprise this weekend. My awesome niece, Mary, and her husband, Steve, came to visit us. Mary and I spent Saturday afternoon making Christmas cards and we had so much fun. (The guys had their own playdate, but we won't get into that here. lol) This is definitely going to go down as one of my all-time favorite weekends.
We made a few of the cards that I've already posted, as well as a couple of new ones. This is one of Mary's cards. I love all of the textures on this card. The card base is Old Olive layered with another piece of Old Olive run through the Big Shot with the Petals-a-Plenty embossing folder. If you want this embossing folder you'll have to hurry, because it's only available in the Holiday Mini Catalog, which expires January 4, 2010. You can find it at my online store here: Petals-a-Plenty Textured Impressions Folder .

While Mary was making this card, I was making another one using the same basic layout. I'll try to post that one tomorrow.
