Wow! Making tamales takes a lot of work, but in the end… they are MMM MMM good! Just finished wrapping four dozen pork and chicken tamales for the weekend. I’m beat, but not enough to post a pretty card I made as part of my first showcase a few weeks ago at a local vendor fair.

Christmas is filled with bold beautiful colors like Santa suit red, or traffic light green, but I love working with non-traditional colors. This soft green has been my favorite this month, but next month I know it will change… LoL. It literally took me 10 minutes to create this card from scratch. I put the last one in the mail today. It will be a day late, but Christ is never late, and I think the recipient will enjoy it. I grew up with my mom’s belief that the holidays start on Thanksgiving Day and end January 6th of the New Year. I’m sticking to that theory… LoL.

I must send a special shout out to my little brother Frank! This blog would not exist if it were not for him. He drove seven hours and spent four days putting this site together. I am forever indebted to him and his awesome family (who let him venture out alone). I have a special something for him, which I cannot post until he receives it. Can’t have him peeking to see what it is. But in the meantime, I wanted to share a card that debuted at the Vendor Show on Dec. 10th.
I also introduced two new products that will come out in the Occasions Mini Catalog that starts Jan. 4, 2012 and the Sale-A-Bration catalog that starts Jan. 24, 2012. Send me an email if you’d like to see more and set up a FREE Make & Take class. I have product from these two catalogs in my hot little hands. =) Please feel free to share my blog with your family & friends. I love to read your comments and suggestions of what you would like to see. I’ll back real soon with more cards and projects.

I used the Simply Scored tool to score the card to give the paper a little depth. (Taught to me by my upline, Ms. Mary Fish).
