Grow Your Blog and Roses of Inspiration

Yes I have been absent a lot on this blog.  Still I want to keep it open and post on it so once agian I am joining Vicki (2 Bags Full) for her
GROW YOUR BLOG event.  You can find the details HERE:  It's a great way to meet new people, find fun blogs and make friends.

Edited to add that a new meme has started up called,  Roses of Inspiration on Stephanie's blog (The Enchanting Rose) today.  So I'm linking up with this card there as well.

Leaving you here today with one of the 3 designs I made for the few Christmas cards that I sent out this past year.  The stamp set is from
Verve Stamps and is called,  Weary World.  You can find it by following the link.

I know it's late to be posting Christmas cards but I was so behind this past year with getting them made and sent out that I didn't have time to post them.  I'll post the other 2 designs later this week.  It will give you a jump start on ideas for this year!

If you have any questions about how this card was made feel free to contact me by e-mail.


  1. Absolutely gorgeous Ida. Love this design...and I have this stamp set. Posting a card with it for the first time tomorrow so we can use each other as inspiration. Happy New Year!

  2. Good evening, Ida! Thank you so much for participating in Roses of Inspiration. The card you share is simply beautiful. I love how the edge is punched out with snowflakes :)
