Postcards and Christmas Cards





Here's todays postcard from home - the gingham stamp is from Impression Obsession and the other stamp is SU -Elegant Ornaments set


(retired i'm sure)


and here's the one from yesterday





I am sure i picked up this foam stamp in Michaels - i've long since forgotten who made it. When i saw it I thought it reminded me of Matisse's shapes from his later years - here's a sample or two.





see what I mean? Anyway.....

I've been working on my Christmas cards for the past week. I'm done with all the scoring and still have a little cutting to do. I have to stamp the main image. Yesterday i spent stamping and cutting out the sentiments. I'll take a picture of my little assembly line once i've got all the pieces ready. In the meantime I want to pass along this request. A friend sent me an email about this and I wanted to pass it along here.When you're doing your Christmas cards, make an extra one and mail it to this address:
A Recovering American soldier
c/o Walter Reed Army Medical Center
6900 Georgia Avenue,NW
Washington ,D..C. 20307-5001
Isn't that a great idea?

I like the quilt/gingham pc, and the funky matisse-style too. I can't wait to see your Christmas card assembly!
