A Few Ultra Simple Christmas Cards…

DSC_0169 DSC_0161 DSC_0164 DSC_0166

Wow it feels like I haven’t made a card in weeks…OH that’s cos I haven’t ha ha!!  So here are a few I made tonight in my newly remodeled craft space (thanks Dad!!).  My Mom and Dad’s last day here is tomorrow…after that I hope to get back to visiting your blogs, leaving some love, and getting some inspiration. After so long away from crafting and with a new space with everything in a new spot I struggled a bit.  Finally I got out my embossing powders and showed Mom how much fun they are….then Dad and I had fun with the light box and the new camera.

All supplies are CTMH.

Hope to be back in the loop here soon.

Enjoy!!

Love the simple and elegant cards. As Cibele would say, "I am G14 with envy". Ask your dad if he would like to adopt another daughter. - grins -

SO glad to see you back! Love your cards and your new craft space - WOW! If I weren't so happy for you, I'd be green with envy. LOL. Hope you're back in the swing of things soon. I've missed you!

Oh I've missed you! I know you've really enjoyed spending time with your parents. Your cards are very classy and I LOVE the embossing! Wow, will your dad come visit my scarp room? Love that room! I also love that warm paint on the walls.
Glad you're back!
Blessings,
Kim xXx

Okay so since Leslie took that one I'll use this one...I'm tickled RV02 that your back and you have an awesome new crafting space. Can you tell I have been spending a lot of time with my copics? Can't tell you how much you have been missed but I am so glad you got to spend time with you parents. Your cards simple but elegant which is always a great combo. Welcome back girlfriend! (BTW RV02=Sugared Almond Pink for those who are copically challenged)

First of all I love your cards. You say ultra simple, I say simply beautiful. AND...your craft space is so nice Sarah! I'm so happy for you...having a dedicated space for crafting will change the way you craft...can't wait to see some pretties coming out of there.

Great cards Sarah. I love the embossing. And your new space looks fabulous. I'm sorry that your visit with your parents had to come to an end. I'm sure you and your family enjoyed every minute though. It is good to have you back in blogland.

Meredith said...

We've missed you!!! I love that space! I really love how much lighting you have--I am a freak about needing things well lit to work!

Jeanne said...

Gorgeous cards, Sarah! Welcome back! You've definitely been missed and it'll be great seeing your wonderful creations on a more regular basis. Although I'm sad for you that you won't see your folks again for such a long time. Hugs!

And I am thrilled for you and your new craft space. What a fantastic treat for you. (I'm also a teensy, weensy envious because I would love to have a space like that INSIDE my house) ~ LOL. Hope you spend many happy hours there!

Been out of the loop for a few days, just catching up... great new room and projects

And here I thought you were blessed with a new fancy camera...just take a look at your new fancy crafting area!!! My word, girl, you must be VERY well loved! ;) It's so awesome that your dad is willing and able to do such big projects for you! Reminds me of my own dad --just about every time they come to town, he's working on something.

BTW, your cards are really pretty. I like the white space, the little pop of color, and the touch of embossing really sets it off. You done good (as my dad likes to say). ;)
