I actually created yesterday!

It has been so long since I created anything that
yesterday I just took the time , sat down and got started.
I made a few (Jeanne de Arc inspired) Christmas cards
and had fun doing so.

I didn't get as many made as I would have liked to
because I ran out of this gray paper with the script
writing. I haven't got a clue where I picked it up
either. It was in my *stash* and my brain just
can't remember everything these days.

I really should take the time to snap *pretty* pictures
for you. Seems that most of the time I am in a hurry so
I just take your basic photos!
{here's to the next year being unhurried
I will let you know how that works out.lol.}

Remember my two rosemary plants that I prayed
that I could keep alive? Well...one is doing great...
the other not so much, so I whacked on it and made
some greenery bunches to decorate with.

I just love the smell of fresh rosemary. Every time I walk past it I run my hands over it
and then inhale the wonderful fragrance.

I found this ribbon in my *stash*. I had bought a spool
of it at Home Goods sometime in the past and forgot all
about it. I think it works well with the rosemary.

Praying you all have a beautiful week.
I am anxiously waiting for the birth of a wee little
granddaughter...due date was Sunday.
Come on little gal...we want to meet you and shower
you with love!!

Blessings~

Such beautiful Christmas cards you've created and the touch of rosemary is perfect. Wouldn't it be so fun to receive one of these beauties in the mail, almost like being back in time.

Best wishes to you this Holiday Season.

Wow! When you create, you create! Your cards are fabulous! I love um! Where did you find those images? I trimmed back a huge Rosemary bush in my yard, took some into my booth, but no one bought any! It made my booth smell very good! Have a great weekend sweetie!
