Pictures removed because they're being stolen by Polyvore!
I got such wonderful responses to last years Seed Paper - Pressed Flower - Rubber Stamped - Christmas Cards , I thought I'd go ahead and do them again this year.

Somewhere along the line I seem to have gotten stuck on a star pattern with the ferns.
Last year, I left the edges ragged/torn and this year I straightened them up. I really like them both ways.
Of course, there would be a bigger variety if I had remembered to collect and press more flowers. Oops!
The youngest daughter thought she'd make a few for her teachers and friends this year. Yay! I'll happily involve her in anything crafty. :)
Here are a few finished examples (yes, they got rubber stamped inside, but you don't get to see that. lol):
At least I had something to occupy my mind for a while. DH is getting laid off next week (which also means we won't have any insurance. Please, please, nobody get sick!). The whole second shift will be gone. Two weeks to Christmas - could the company have timed it any worse? UGH!
Things were as tight as they could already get around here. I don't know what we're going to do now. How do you pinch pennies that no longer exist? ~sigh~
Christmas sure isn't going to be all that happy. There is no way I will be able to buy gifts as the little I had saved will have to go towards food instead.
This totally sucks . . .
If I keep saying it, it might eventually come true: "Next year has GOT to be better!"
Anybody want to buy some four-leaf clovers? Cause they sure as hell don't work for me.
