Happy New Year!

In the words of writer Phyllis Mcginley,
"Stir the eggnog, lift the toddy;
Happy New Year, everybody!"

Wizard of Oz Note Cards

Someone contacted me and asked if they could buy some Wizard of Oz cards similar to the ones I made last Christmas. We had several conversations about it and I made two sets of eight blank note cards so they could choose which one they liked best. Then that person flaked and even ignored my emails. Just tell me you don't want them, geez.
So I shared photos of them with the Oz club I belong to and sold the top set! It really gave my crafting ego a boost. And the person who bought them is the founder of a major Oz convention, so, extra booster. I'm so appreciative for the sale, it came at a good time.

Card-making Frenzy

I've been making cards like ca-razy!

This is for one of my beautiful nieces. I did a lot of detailing on the paper doll because she's worth the extra effort.
The next two are for my daughter's co-workers. I love the little dress my other daughter cut with her Silhouette.
And that bow!
This was for my brother, one of my favorite people in the world.
I was excited to use the confetti pieces I embossed and inked up.
This was for one of my closest friend's parents. They celebrated 65 years together, can you imagine that?!
I helped decorate, and when I saw the colors I went directly to a craft store and bought paper especially for it, even splurged on some confetti vellum and pretty blue ribbon.
Topped it off with a bow on the envelope.
My daughter Dawn made this sign, by request, for the basket of goodies my friend laid out for the kids who attended the celebration. She used paper left over from my card and foam stickers. Isn't it adorable?
I use these dresses every chance I get.
I always pop them up with pop-dots.
I love the simplicity of these. And the pink ribbon with a fine line of gold trim? My new favorite.
I have so many, I'll make another post so this one won't be never-ending. ;-)
