I have a small stack of these Asparagus prints on the table ( because, this was the best thing I tried a while back) and I have been hoping to wiggle them into Christmas cards, so here is another one. ( #8 for this month from me)

Well, I have 18 Christmas cards done, with sentiments in them and envelopes stamped. I need over twice that! So far behind! But I was surprised I had that many done!

I haven't finished my August quota yet, but just made this card for the new Inspiration Challenge and since it has birds on it and since I proposed birds as a theme for September, I thought I'd link it here. It will be number 1 of 10 for September (if I ever get caught up!).

Here's another one with a bird. It's sentiment is "A Little Note" because it's going to a friend who recently suffered a bereavement, and though I want to send her a card at Christmas, it doesn't seem appropriate to say "Merry Christmas" or "Happy Christmas" as it's going to be a sad time for her.
