Christmas Card 2002 (our first in Germany)- before Stampin' Up!! I had taken a class in heat embossing. I had the Creative Memories oval cutters, a punch and some fancy scissors..... whew- baby I've come a long way!!!!
Christmas 2003- Ryan's first. A bit more brave- a gate fold with a wheeled background- SU Only Ornaments. The ornament stamp in the front was one from Close to My Heart (ACK!!)- it had all kinds of bands for the middle. The stamp inside, left was from Stampin' Up!- don't recall the name- had a baby rattle with words in a circle as well...... The picture was in the card with clear photo corners. Look at little Scooby- she was our dog that went to live with people with NO kids after Bryson was born- we were ALL happier!! But man, we still miss her a lot at times!!! What a sweetie she was!!! Heck- look at little me and little Rich!!
Christmas Card- 2004 (our first in Knoxville)
Sorry for the glare- it was in a clear envelope!! I did the polished stone technique on this card. The re-inkers I used were- Night of Navy, Bashful Blue, and Silver. I loved this corner punch!!!! I think the stamp set was called- Sleigh Ride....... All SU materials.
