It's been so long...

since I posted...and I sure have missed it!! I have missed you, my friends, the creating and the posting!!

I ended my temp job with the staffing agency this past week and I'm so glad, it just wasn't a good fit! So this past Thursday I took the test/all day seminar for my California Notary. I won't know if I passed for 10 days or so and then the FBI background check....I know your thinking FBI!!! Yes the laws have changed quite a bit. I was a Notary in Nevada 10 years ago and it's soooo different. But it really is a good thing, especially for the mortgage industry. Anyway I also have an interview on Monday that I'm excited we will see.

As for some creativity here are just a few cards I made yesterday.....I really need to get these done and sent. Yes I'm a bit late but that job was just killing me!!!!

For this card I used the new Basic Grey set from Hero Arts. I purchased it over  Thanksgiving and this is the first chance I've had to ink it up!!!

For this one I used my Copic's to color the ornament and then I cut it out, and popped it up on a simple white card. These are both quick and easy cards.

This card is one I had done a while ago for a scramble over on the HA flicker group. So...

 I thought I would give it a try in traditional Christmas colors. I think I like the original better.

Well Thanks so much for stopping by.  I hope you are all enjoying the Christmas season. I hope to be back soon with some more to share.

And Dana D. you crack me up!! I loved your 2nd comment on my last post!!! Thank You!!!


  1. These are all so lovely! You are certainly getting back into cardmaking with a splash! I hope your exam went well!

  2. Yes!!! She's back with gorgeous cards. Love the blue ornament Karen. I do like the one you made with the traditional Christmas colors, and the simplicity of the first one. My day is now complete!

  3. Love the cards and so great to hear from you!!
