Silver Bells border from Crafters Companion

Here are more cards. I used the Crafters Companion border dies. They are listed Die Sire. The one right above shows two versions of the Bethlehem die. Couldn't help making that shaker card!

Thanksgiving week!  Al & I went to Ralph Jones again this year. Love the Christmas displays. Took lots of pictures, although I am not sure they liked it. I had always asked in the previous years and they said yes. I don't think they meant it, from a conversation this year . She asked what we were going to do with them, and added that she hoped we wouldn't open a store! Have you been there and seen the inventory?? Anyway, do take a trip downtown and see all the pretty displays. We got to visit  this week with family and friends from out of state. Actually played a board game one night. It was 'really' late for us, but totally enjoyed the time together. I know, we need to get out more!
Black & Gold was very striking!

  the North Country paper  again, and below is the greeting inside.

Memory box Merry Christmas background die and the Bell and tree are from Elizabeth Crafts. They are called Icons. There is a gingerbread man, a dove, and more. Really nice.

Our month of November is halfway over for 2015. Wow! I try to post, but I keep on surfing, so I don't get as much done as I should. Love Pinterest, Google and all the wonderful artists I visit for inspiration. Since this is the month of Thanksgiving, "I thank you beautiful artists, bloggers and crafters now!! "
I still am making cards for the nursing home. Just a little over 100 now. Usually we try to do 150 & several years we have done 250. Kind of depends on how many patients are in residence. I know I could do more that one home a year. But then I do cards for a church ministry. And I have ideas for kids in hospitals. Just need to work that out.  Here are the last 7. I used the same paper as I managed to buy it two different times! Ever do that?? I could do ALL the cards with this paper I think. It is called North Country. So the 'deer family' is memory box. The tree did is Joy crafts, and the verse is from Kaiser Crafts.
Thanks for looking!
