Going for the Gold.......FMS201






Turning that calendar page to September made me think about the holidays - time to start the Christmas cards!  I decided to go glam with my first card of the 2015 season! Winter Wonderland Vellum just shines with its golden design! The bough image from Wonderland is embossed and flipped for fun. A tiny star from Holly Jolly Greetings tops the pinecone. Gold cord, a gold button and a gold embossed sentiment from Happy Scenes completes the look!

But in the meantime we are holding on to the last golden days of summer!  Here are the two youngest members of our family saying hello at the beach yesterday! According to Emma......"Corduroy is my best friend"..........


Emma - Age 3
Corduroy - Age 3 months



Ourr talented team member Amy has a wonderful sketch for us this week at Freshly Made Sketches!  Hope you join us!

I love this elegant card! It's crisp and clean, and so very pretty. This picture of Emma and her dog is so sweet. May they be best friends for many, many years.

Wow love the card. I got the vellum pack and now you've given me a great idea.. thanks
I'm trying to get "at the beach yesterday" in my head with our "crazy cold one day hot the next" temps we have been having in MI. But Emma is still just a cutie pie.
Have a great Labor Day! Hugs.
