Joyeux Noel

Hello and
Merry Christmas to all of you!
Sorry I'm running a bit late on my Christmas card post
but I promise it was worth the wait.
I think this is one of my most detailed and
beautiful cards I ever made for Christmas. 
"Joyeux Noel"
 As some of you know I love everything Louisiana,
which is my husbands home state,
and I wanted to reflect a bit of our Louisiana culture in our Christmas card this year.
 Delicate Spellbinders dies remind me a lot of the beautiful iron lacework in the French Quarter.
 Creole is still spoken in the south and it is on my bucket list to learn
 at least a few simple sentences.
 No Christmas without a Poinsettia.
How did I do?

Wishing everyone near and far
a wonderful
Merry Christmas, 
Joyeux Noel, 
Frohe Weihnachten!
 May your home be filled with joy, peace and love!
To everyone deployed 
thank you for your sacrifice,
and a safe return home!

Diana and Family

Happy Llama Day!

Hello and
Happy Llama Day 
to all of you!
Yes you heard right today, December 9th, is National Llama Day
and what better opportunity to reveal one of my Christmas cards.
People who know me know I'm a bit obsessed with this 
furry absolutely adorable critter.
So when I stumbled upon the Christmas Llama stamp 
at Michaels, I could not resist!!!
Say hello to "Fa-La-La-Llama".

 Llama stamp is Stampendous CUR21 52089 
 Label was made with an old label maker.
Christmas light string to add a bit more bling.
Happy Llama Day to all of you!

Finishing up the other Christmas cards as we speak.
I'm hoping to get all of them in the mail by end of the week
so I can reveal the card.
A little hint about the card
All of my favorite things!

Have a wonderful week
thank you for stopping by!

A little birdie told me...

... it is your birthday!
and happy weekend to you all!
I know the card I'm sharing today isn't very 
seasonal but if you live anywhere around Kentucky 
you sure would think it is spring.
Temps reached almost 70 today and while 
Christmas shopping in town I saw people in shorts and t-shirts.
Don't worry, it will be snowing by Wednesday!!!
And also I made this little birthday card back in the spring but for some reason 
never gotten around sharing it.
A little birdie told me...
 ... it is your birthday!
Lace back panel was cut with Spellbinders "Chantilly Paper Lace" die S5-327. 
 Bird was cut and embossed with Recollections die 508100.
 Bird cage was cut with Sizzix/Tim Holtz "Caged Bird" die 656634
 Flowers are punched and leaves were cut with
Spellbinders "Brilliant Butterfly" die S1-012.

I hope you liked this little birthday card
and I promises my next post will be all about
Have a beautiful week
thank you for stopping by!
