The Toile Tidings Designer… Continue reading More Cardinals – Toile Christmas
Don’t you just love a play on words? I spent this past week-end crafting for almost 16 hours a day.....at a Home for the Hoiidays Retreat in Northern Virginia with about 20 other crafters. I made 27 cards and 3 fancy box treat holders, all with a holiday theme. Four are Halloween Cards, twenty six… Continue reading A Card(inal) for Many Occasions
