So very nice of you to stop by! What a fun and challenging hobby to have!

May you always have work for your hands to do.
May your pockets hold always a coin or two.
May the sun shine bright on your windowpane.
May the rainbow be certain to follow each rain.
May the hand of a friend always be near you.
And may God fill your heart with gladness to cheer you.

Sending You the Joy

This is for Speedy the Cat's Friends Challenge #66 -- Anything but Ribbon.(Here is the website.) Since I have been working on making Christmas cards I decided to use Mark's Christmas Postage Due stamp set and I used Musical Holidays for the sentiment on the inside. I used MFP white cs and GKD key lime cs with the We R Memory Keepers dp and Doodlebug dp. I stamped with Black Tuxedo Memento ink on the front and Ladybug and Cottage Ivy Memento ink on the inside, colored with copics, Sakura glitter pens, added some Polar White Flower Soft for the beards and Ranger Glossy Accent for glasses. AND since I couldn't use ribbon...added some Mark's red twine in 3 buttons from Oriental Trading. And sending you Christmas wishes....with Postage Due!


  1. Wow! I love all those postage stamps together to form a collage of sorts. The buttons are PERFECT for this card, too! THanks for playing with Speedy's Friends this week. :)

  2. Barbara--this is so cute!!!! I love how you put the various stamps on the card!!!! You really were very creative with this! Thanks for playing along with us this week at Speedy the Cat's Friends challenge!

  3. Barbara what a fun Christmas card. I like the peppermints on this and the great layout. Thank you so much for playing along with Speedy's Friends Challenge. Hope you can play with us again this week.
