Well, I got my mojo back this year and whipped up several designs of magnetic coaster calendars.  These coasters are 4" x 4" so the space to create is a bit small.  But this cute panda was the perfect size to go along side the table with a tray of sushi.  

Sharing with you today is my first set.

Wishing You a Tweet Christmas

Over the next few weeks, I'll be sharing the Christmas cards I whipped up.  Here's the first set.  Rats, I made 10 of each design but while trying to be "efficient" I mailed some before I took the picture.  
Duh, LOL. Hope you're all enjoying the Christmas season.

Sweet Birthday Wishes

Hope you're all enjoying the weekend.

Recently, my dear cousin and son's girlfriend celebrated their birthdays.   Since they were just a few days apart, I made 2 identical cards.  In more ways than one, this bunny image turned out to be perfect for both.
