What a great experience! (and more of my cards)

I participated in my very first blog hop this weekend and have come away very pleased. There were over 130 participants in Operation Write Home's Card Making Day blog hop. So many beautiful Christmas cards and such inspiration! If you didn't get a chance to see the entries, please check them out here:  (sorry, I don't know how to make the word "here" a link yet.)

You'll need to scroll down to see the 132 blog names listed, I'm # 132 having been moved there after it was found that there was a bad link to my blog and it had to be deleted and I was re-added at the end.  Anyway, I did receive some very nice comments from folks when my blog could be seen after the move and it was gratifying to hear good things from other artists.

As I stated I would yesterday, I'm posting more of my cards tonight but will still have more to follow.  I've spent my time very productively at Hearts N Crafts these last couple of weeks.

So, enjoy..........


  1. Lovely cards, Kathie! I especially like the cute snowmen; and the "time and trouble" quote is a hoot.

    Thanks for your nice comments on my blog. I am trying to come up with more cards for children, as I think there's a need.

    Yes, I would love to know the secret of the knotted ribbon -- it's really unusual!

  2. Kathie, thanks for the ribbon secret! I'll definitely have to try it.

  3. Kathie, thanks for the kind comments on my blog hop card! Your cards are amazing, particularly the first 2!

    My filling for the shaker card was a combination of small seed beads and various sparkly doodads that were bought at Joanne's Fabrics. I will be doing a tutorial for OWH on that card - just not sure when yet!

  4. Can you believe it!!! You won my blog candy!!

    So when you get a chance email me with your snail mail so I can send you your prize.
