Snoopy and New Blog Banner!

Come and take a look at my new banner. Beth, my very talented friend once again created magic in the form of a new banner for the The Card Castle.

Here is a card that is fairly simple, but I really like it. The card is made from brown card stock which is different for me. I usually make all my cards from white or cream card stock.

I started my card making addiction by making cards featuring Snoopy and the Peanuts gang. I used to draw Snoopy back then and each card took forever! I wish I knew someone who had saved one of my cards but that was close to 30 years ago that I made the first one. (which can't be since I'm only 26.) I'm curious to see what it would look like now. It shouldn't surprise you that my first stamp set was of the Peanuts gang mounted on those foam blocks. I remounted all of those stamps on wood and I still use them occasionally. I'll have to do a Snoopy week sometime because I have a collection of Snoopy (and Peanuts) stamps.

I need to get going to the post office to mail a couple of things this morning. A few members of my hubby's family are flying in and will be here later today. I think I might finish decorating the mantle... just for fun! Have a blessed day!

Stamps: typewriter Snoopy (Stampabilities), Thinking of You(Hero Arts)
Paper: Making Memories

Happy Holidays from an old friend!
I stop by occasionally, but I dont leave messages, only this time I want to wish you & yours all the best for the new year. Lets hope it wont be as bad as they predict.
You still make the loveliest cards, and still have a heart as big as the great outdoors. Blessings to you and yours!

Love the banner... so perfect! Also that darling card. DH bought on Ebay for me for Christmas a box 12" X 12" x 6" FULL of wood mounted rubber stamps! No Snoopy stamps though. Lots of others for me to play with....
To aa great New Year!

And another great banner! Nice to have talented friends.

(And I am very glad you did not finish your mantle, I so did not get my decorating finished!)

Oh how I love Snoopy! And all the holiday movies. It saddens me that my kids just don't 'get it'. :-) Thanks for carrying on the memory with your adorable card.
