1st Post

Of the New Year. I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and a Happy New Year. I had a wonderful holiday. Got a lot of goodies and laughed and played games with my family. Next week I will start doing Thursday Technique's again so make sure you come back to check that out. I'm am hoping that I will be a better blogger this year. I'm hoping to be able to post at least 2 times if not more a week. I wanted to stop by and share a few cards I made over the last 2 weeks. I made several but I thought I would show you some of the cards I made with some of my new stamps I got on the day after Christmas. I also wanted to show you a card I made for Abraham Lincolns 200th Birthday. I'm not sure if every city paper ran an article about the Abraham Lincoln Bicentennial Commission wanting people from all over to send Handmade Cards wishing Lincoln a Happy 200th Birthday. The article was ran in the Indianapolis Star I think it was in Mondays paper. If you would like to make a card and send it, the address is: Abraham Lincoln, Old State Capitol, 1 Old State Capitol Plaza, Springfield IL. This was reported by: Associated Press. Once I get all my pics downloaded onto my computer I will be back with a few more pics of the Christmas Cards I made (goofy me forgot to take pics of all the ones I made). Hope you all have a wonderful evening and weekend. Until my next rambling :)
