Wow! My fingers are finely clean and the heat gun has cooled off. It has been a crazy couple of weeks as I worked on ,and finished last night , the Christmas card orders. I do love my customers and would love to have a few more. A while back I posted the designs offered this year. And the results?

Plus 12 general greeting cards. All stamped, sealed and ready to deliver first thing after Thanksgiving. I want them all to enjoy the family time before having to address all of these cards.
Now…..does any one know anything about starting an Etsy shop. This may be the best way to sell the Dingledodie cards. What are Dingledodies? “Dingledodies are friends or acquaintances who you cannot help but be uplifted,enlightened or cheered up by-those people who put the light in your life. They are the special people who never fail to put a smile on your face, because of some series of strange habits or quirks unique only to them” Erma Bombeck
I was introduced to this by MaryAnne at Scrappystickyinkymess. I have followed her for a long time on her blog and she is the reason I make Kennedy Word books for all of my grandchildrens first birthday presents. There is something about your own name that pleases everyone.
Time to think about THE dinner. I’ll be cooking. It has been a while but maybe I can pull it off. Maybe.
Until next time…Thank you for dropping in and do come back. Leave a comment so I know you were here and please follow…Wordpress likes for you to follow and so do I.
Remember…This is the Lords day…Rejoice! and Happy Thanksgiving to all of us here in the USA.
ps. The Dingledodie cards are the 3D cards made with dies by Susan’s Garden over at Elizabeth Craft Designs.
These cards are at Union Mercantile LLC in Union, Ms.
Also this to encourage buying a hand made card
Those of yu who live close enough would so enjoy visiting Suzanne at Union Mercantile. She has a wonderful selection of home decor/gifts and Christmas is just around the corner. Some things are available on line at https://unionmercantileco.com.
My Fall News letter is going out tomorrow. A little late but what can I say…busy,busy. These are the cards being offered to my customers. Would you like to be one of my spsecial friends? Let me know and you can be on the mailing list too.
My cousin sent me the direction from a magazine and of course I had to give it a go. The Hero Arts Kit used on an earlier card was perfect for this idea. After careful consideration me,myself and I decided to send it to Little Cob. He is the grandson of our own Cobweb and accustom to the crazyness of a crafting grandma.( not that Cob is crazy but I sure fit the mold at times) The tunnel is made up of 4 circles that decrease in size and all of the little pieces were mostly fussy cut. The larger pieces are die cut which helps a lot. The report is that he enjoyed it and that blesses my heart.
the top of the circle says…Way up North there is a small village where it is Christmas all year long. or something to that effect. A few brain cell have slipped making all of this Christmas stuff. I also send Mr and Mrs. Cob a very simple card. Sending Love this Christmas was just perfect for someone so special.

Not sure how this works but here goes. You should be able to click the above link for the news letter. Following pages are the Christmas cards offered for this year. Of course I can always work with you if there is something else you have in mind for “that special person” Orders can be through PayPal if I have your email address. It works really well and I have been very pleased in the past.
They are numbered left to right except fot the bottom picture. It is bottom to left top and right. Photo skills are questionable but if there are any questions…just ask.
Just so you know I have been busy.
