I can't believe there's only 61 days left in 2011! This year has been all about catching-up for me! I never dreamed that having back surgery a year ago would make such a difference in my life (on October 18th it was one year since I had 3 vertebrae fused together and a metal rod inserted along my spine)! My recovery the past year was well worth it however - I haven't taken pain medication since January!
I finally finished my Christmas stock - the card on the left was the last one (click here to view details and a larger image or to purchase). It has an embossed background of holly and berries which was done with that new Big Shot "toy" I spoke of about a month ago! The embossing is better seen in the larger view of the card. It's hard to believe the Christmas craft shows are upon us - I have 3 to do locally and then this year will be history!
PS - I haven't made any headway on the scanner problem I spoke of in my last post, but I haven't given up!
I am a fabric artisan who found her passion when most grandmothers are thinking of retiring! Creating fabric greeting cards for more than 20 years, I've accumulated many quotes, quips, puns and sayings which give Kalico Kards character! After sharing my handmade cards successfully at arts and craft shows locally I was encouraged to offer them to others on the world wide web! The fabric designs and the messages on my cards are created to warm the heart and tickle the spirit of their recipient. Doing what I love is an inspiring way to work - it means making new friends and hearing their wonderful comments about how Kalico Kards have inspired their lives. It's a huge motivator. Time passes quickly when you're doing what you enjoy! Log onto my website at www.kalicokards.com and leave me a comment - I'd love hearing from you!
