Miss You

Today the challenge at Phindy's Friday Challenge is to create a card or other papercrafting project with animals so we are calling it All Creatures Great and Small.  You must use a Phindy image on your project but there are lots of animals in her store if you don't have anything suitable.

The Christmas Eve challenge will be our last challenge for 2010 and will run for two weeks.  Make sure you come back to check it out because we are going to have some exciting changes to announce that day. 

I sent my husband to the post office with my Christmas cards a couple of days ago and he called when he got back to his office to inform me that he had to stand and add more postage to each card.  Needless to say, he did not sound happy.  As it turns out they weren't too heavy but they were too thick because of all the embellishments so they were considered large envelopes and as a result they cost $1.34 CDN each to mail.  As a result, I have vowed to try and make at least some of my cards in a more clean and simple style and this is one of them.
