Card Writing and a FREE Quick Page!

This is my 900th post!  I can't quite grasp that.  I might need a nap now *snort*

First thing, my little ladybug has vanished!  Alas after coming home from school last night, all excited to plump a raisin for my new friend and after having Valinda "name" it,  I seeked high and low and fear that Lovey has found some little crevice to climb into.  I will keep you posted  though if there is a sighting in the future, and I will plump up the raisin - just in case. 

Card Writing Time!

Its that time of the year again - to send out greetings to friends and family.  I'm reminded of this each time I open my mailbox and recieve cards from all over the place - for instance, I recieved a lovely card from Betty in Paraguay just yesterday.  Thank you for thinking of me all the frosty way up here, my friend.   A card will be zinging its way to you, too, when I get my act in gear here after I post.  :)

Our house has something I just love - an old fashioned fold-down ironing board, and though I don't use it to actually iron on (do people do that thing called ironing any more?) I love to pull up my special high chair (its just like one my Grandma used to have in her house when we were growing up - has two steps which fold out)  and tuck it up to the ironing board and lay out all my card supplies and address book.  Its a wonderful little corner to while away a few hours as I send seasonal wishes out to those I love. 

Where do you write your cards? 

And as mentioned, Valinda created this fun and frisky 8x8 inch Quick Page using my Artistic Christmas Kit which is available at SBE!  Just click here to purchase!

I would love to see your layouts - and feature them here too.  Just send them to lalalime(at)hotmail{dot}[com] putting Artistic QP in the subject line.  Enjoy!

PS - Thanks Valinda!
