Christmas cards!

Hello my crafty friends! Hope you are having a happy Saturday! Here is gray, rainy and feels like Fall! Love it! For today I have a couple of cards I created for Heartfelt Creations and I couldn't post earlier due to my back problems and also my family and I went camping. Yeap! I have to confess I am not a camping girl, for me camping is going to a cabin and have all the commodities you need, but this time we did the real camping deal, LOL and I really enjoyed it, my back on the other hand didn't like it much, but my husband and daughter were really happy and it was nice to have a couple of days without TV or Internet.

Visiting Johnston Ridge Observatory

MT. St. Helens.

Anyway, I have a couple of cards for you today.

  4. Hey Girl - Sorry to hear your back is still hurting, I feel for you and know just how awful back pain can be! Ouch!!

    My camping days are LONG over and my idea of going away is a nice hotel on a lovely warm beach -- hopefully with with room service too! :)

    Hope you'll improve more each day and have more time for crafting!

    Take care and be well!!!
