Cards Galore!

On the Ninth Day of Christmas, My True Love Gave to Me...

Nine Drummers Drumming
Sandi: Maximum Embellishment
The 9th Day of Christmas ATC comes from Sandi at Maximum Embellishment.  It is amazing.  I have no idea how she created this card, but the rectangle within the rectangle in the middle, is raised with some sort of texture material that kind of glistens.  I know I am not describing this well, but trust me, it is truly beautiful.  This is definitely one of my favorites.  I love it.  BTW, Sandi's blog is beautiful, too.  You should check it out.

I received two more sets of cards in the mail yesterday.  First, my daughter drew and painted (watercolor) a fish several months ago at school.  This artwork was sent to a company in Colorado where it was converted into blank note cards.  I can't get over how awesome the cards turned out!  On the reverse, my daughter's full name, her school name, and the date is printed.  What a truly fabulous way to preserve and showcase her art. 

Charlotte's Fancy Fish
I also received Penny's card in the mail.  The theme for December's Blissful ATC Swap is "Angels."  Penny's interpretation is beautiful.  She also sent me an ornament for our tree as well as a fantastic handmade card.

Thanks Penny.  I knew your card would be great!

As promised, here is a photo of my new/old $10.00 Goodwill desk.

I thought I'd better get a picture posted before it gets too out of control messy!  Is it awesome!!!  It is gigantic..obscenely huge..I love it!  (Still hate the horrid chair, though).

Please remember to sign up for a chance to win the Valori Wells wallet pattern.  You can click here to jump back to read about that Hot Potato and SIGN UP please!  See how close I am to 100 followers!  I'm going to be picking the winner on December 20th!

Toodles for now!
