Keeping holiday cards simple but elegant...

When working on holiday cards sometime simple is the way to go! Most of us send out numerous cards to family and friends; keep in mind when creating your seanonal holiday card you should keep them simple but elegant! Above is a sample of a elegant but easy card. I chose to TAC's train collage. I also used TAC's Reese Paper Collection.

Hoppy Everything!!

Hoppy, hoppy, hoppy days! For the last few months my life has been consumed with my son's illness. I would like to thank all of you that sent kind words and prayers our way. Jonathan is still dealing with his illness. He is doing much better and was allowed to return to school this fall. We are all very thankful for doctors who just kept on moving forward each time a treatment did not work for him. I am grateful that they were able to find a treatment that is working and hopefully someday soon his body will be free of the virus that is causing the attack on his platelets. Last week was the first time he did not get an injection and I keep praying that his treatment will be over soon.

I need to apologize to all of you for not keeping my blog updated weekly. During this time my creativity was drained! I just was unable to open my mind to my artist side. I am looking forward to getting my blog up and going again. I hope that I will be able to share my love for paper crafting with everyone!

This card is dedicated to my son. Even if he is turning twenty-one this September he will always be my little boy and will always have special way of making me happy!

I use a wonderful TAC set call Summer Boys Summer Boys,

I also used a great paper collection called Kaleidoscope Boyz.
