Cards for Gina

One of our stamping buddies is very ill. Her name is Gina and she is a young mother of three young boys. She has started chemotherapy treatments. She is having a hard time being a mom and wife while being so sick. She really needs some encouragement!! You all did so wonderfully showering Victoria with hundreds of cards. In this season of giving and thankfulness, can we show the same kind of love and support for Gina? :1. Send a card to Gina. It does NOT have to be hand stamped!

Me my favorites is my grandma's sour cream cutouts cookies. they take 2 days to make them. But they are sure worth it as they do go fast. I plan on making 7-8 different cookies this year. I do hope I have containers for them. One year I didn't and had to use a tin can that was really deep to hold them all. Once I get started,watch out. :)

Red cardinal

This stamp is a PSX stamp that I have had for a while. I thought I would him out as i think it just calls christmas. I used colored pencils on it and all the shading is with the pencils also. I stamped the saying 3 times. I love this ribbon as i got it at the dollar general store.

Let it Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snow

This card I did from wired Ribbon. Yes, I loved the ribbon when I seen it and thought it would make a great card. I love the snowmen on it. You can even cut out the snowmen individually if you like. The snowflakes are embossed. Then I stamped the saying.

Snow Family

Boy, it sure has been along time since I posted anything here and I am sorry for that but I have busy taking care of my in-laws place. They get back tonight. :) This card I stamp with a tree from stampin up and then embossed with evergreen embossing powder. The corners are punched from a ticket punch which is from stampin up. I then put on ribbon which has merry christmas and a santa hat on it. I loved the ribbon so much when I seen I just had to buy it.
