I have discovered that life is a roller coaster and I'm learning to enjoy the ride! I am a married mom of 4. I work part-time outside of the home and, of course, more that full time as a wife and mother! I do classes from my craft room in the basement...which is why we call it the "Craft Cave."

'08 Peek #4

Don't have any Christmas stamps? (Not that I would believe that of ANY of you!!) Well, try thinking out of the box and use something non-traditional.
We all have some regular everyday stamps. It's time to start multi purposing our supplies, especially in these days of recession where we all have to watch how we spend our crafting dollar.
This card uses the Welcome Home set. Not really a Christmas set, huh? Well, it's all in how you use it... decorate it... color it... embellish it!!

Barb, this is just so darn clever. Welcome Home is one of my favorite sets and now my mind's awhirlin' thinking about neighborly Christmas cards. Thanks for the inspiration.

I love using non-holiday stamps to create holiday-specific stuff! It really makes you feel more creative.

Great idea!!!

Sorry I've been MIA in our Sisterhood. Life has been crazy - and this time of year is filled with craft fairs for me. I'm so glad they're done.
