Pin It
Hey all, the Christmas season is really upon us now and i though i better make a post here and get my head out of Great Keppel's sunny skies and clear blue water......ahhh stop rambling...lol..no seriously here is a card you might like to try. i seen this done in a Big Shot machine with stampin up dies by sizzix called movers and shakers (click here to what the video)and really liked the concept, which got me thinking how i could make this in my cuttlebug.....so heres what i came up with... ill post some more Christmas cards soon...Valita



and a last thought

As long as the earth endures,
seedtime and harvest,
cold and heat, summer and winter,
day and night will never cease.
Genesis 8:22

This card was made By Carol ! another idea using this method so think outside the box and use some of your other die shapes! thanks Carol :)

Valita, So happy to see you posting great ideas again. I am very new to card making and just love all of your ideas. I even went to your site to see if I had been missing your posts last night. It had been awhile, and I was beginning to worry. Darlene J. in Tennessee, USA

Hi Valita,

I wanted to stop by to say thank you for this tutorial. I found you on YouTube a few weeks ago. Following this tutorial, I managed to create a Halloween card! Very pleased with the results. You've been a great help.

Besides your tutorial and cards being wonderful, I find such comfort in the Verse you chose to end with...Everytime I see a sprout in the earth, I realize another day will dawn...
