Loved the sentiment, Mike. Using painter's paper is a great idea! TFS...


Beautiful! I like coordinating cards and paper, too... Yes, I often make my own paper. Lunch bags ( white, craft or colored) make great gift bags. Decorate them with stamps before filling them. You can fold down the top, punch on each side of the folded down top and add ribbon, yarn, twine, etc. We have used these bags often at church...Easter, Halloween (leaves, pumpkins, etc... No witches), and Christmas.

Oh Mike, that is so very nicely done! I love how you coordinated the card and the wrapping paper! Such a great looking card. Thanks for the inspiration!


Merry Christmas Mike to you and yours.
This is a wonderful card!! My niece is also a barrel racer (retired) and has 2 beautiful horses - this card will be awesome for her. CASE, CASE.....
As we go into the New Year I want to thank you for your talent and sharing it with us.
Will you spend Christmas at the cottage?

What beautiful, beautiful paper you have created! I am sure he LOVED it and the card. May you have the happiest of holidays, my friend!


Mike, this is fabulous. I bet your friend loved it. It's so fun to stamp up something for those who mean so much to us. I'm going to have to CASE this for my niece who is a barrel racer and dear friend of mine who's a retired barrel racer and runs 400 head of cattle on her ranch.
