Happy Holidays & Some Accepted Cards

Today I thought I would share my annual "family" Christmas Card photo. If I sent you a card and it didn't have a picture, it's because my printer ran out of ink!! The Black & White Border Collie-ish dog is Daisy - she's ~13. Of course, Dusty is the Pembroke Welsh Corgi - stealing the show - she'll be 12 on February 29. And Callie is the old Shepherd Mix - she's almost 15 - I got her from a shelter 13 years ago and they told me she was 1.5 at the time. And that girl in the back is me!! Thanks to my neighbor Beverly for getting a good photo - it's not an easy task to get dogs to all look the same way at the same time!

Thanks for stopping by and Happy Holidays to you and yours!!

Since I shared my Christmas reject cards yesterday, I thought I would share some of my published cards today. 

These first two cards were in the Autumn Take Ten issue. 

This card was in the Stamper's Sampler December/January 2012 Issue - Newspaper Challenge (it's a more vintage type magazine)

This card was in the November Card Maker Magazine - "Thanks" Color Challenge Section

And finally, here is my Paper Crafts Magazine one hit wonder - it was in the September/October issue in the Circus Section. It was also featured on their blog twice so I think they really liked it!


  1. Donna, I am so happy for you that you've been published quite a bit! And I do remember that circus card; loved it then, love it now.
