MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!

Just kidding!!!

Happy Sunday, blogging family!!!  I hope all's well and that there's some happy crafting going on!!!

Did my post title catch your attention?  Well, it isn't as if you weren't forwarned that one of my resolutions is to have all the Christmas cards I need for 2011.  So, I hope you're not too-too overwhelmed with Christmas just yet.

To me, there's a lot going on on this card so I hope it's not too busy:


Here are a few close-ups:




Before I leave, the pendants are on their way to everyone receiving them, as well the blogaversary candy... YEAAA!  I would appreciate your letting me know you've received them.  I hope you enjoy them; and thanks so much for always stopping by to take the time to browse my blog, comment, play with me and keep me motivated!!!

Well, that's it for now!  I'll be back, so...

I'll be seeing you!

Oh my gosh, Audrey, how beautiful is that card? I love all of the details-don't change a thing! I'm sorry I've been absent-my family was all hit with that awful virus the week before last and my work is ramping up on top of that. I'm sorry about the change in followers but I KNOW it has nothing to do with you; it must be people just dealing with their own issues-who would leave your blog on purpose?! Hugs, sweetie, and I can't wait to see the pendant, I will let you know when it comes.

Hey there Darlin'! Thanks for your visit. I'm starting to work on catching up since I've been AWOL, and your blog was first on my list. So sorry you and hubby have been ill. But I guess it's a good thing I didn't try to contact you this trip. As a matter of fact, I've been planning to contact you when I know I'll have some time up there. This one was kind of a whirlwind. I just love your latest cards. I, too, get uncomfortable having to make the sympathy cards, but you certainly did a beautiful job. And this Christmas card, though ridiculously early (I'm just jealous), is gorgeous. Not overdone at all. Get rid of that yucky flu. See you again soon!!

Michele said...

Absolutely beautiful!!!! So many pretty details!

Love That Bug said...

Audrey,
What a beauty that card is. I love it.
I will let you know as soon I receive the pendant. Thank you so much
Hugs

Whoa... Made me panic there for a minute. Thought we might have to 'check you in' somewhere there for a minute. :) -- But since you say its for 2011 and are aware its a year away, I'm back to a regular beating hear. Don't scare us like that! This is another amazing Audrey creation for sure. The recipient is very fortunate and is going to flip.

Staying Crafty said...

This is so nice! Yes, there is a lot going on - but I think in this case the special fold of the card allows for you to do more to it without making it look cluttered :)

~BridgetL~ said...

OH MY, I can't even wrap my head around hearing about Christmas just yet, but I sure do love seeing your beautiful cards. :)

Hazel said...
