The weekend is almost here! I am excited to dive into my weekend and finish up my preparations for Christmas. This year I have told myself over and over not to make a big deal out of the gift giving thing. I only have a few gifts to buy as Tony and I rarely exchange gifts. If we want something, we will usually just go get it so it is pointless to try to think of something to buy for each other. I am really looking forward to making Christmas dinner, cooking turkey dinner is my absolute favorite meal to prepare.
Okay no more gab… Here’s the card I have to share with you today…..
Simple but pretty… I have mailed all my Christmas cards and for once, I really feel that I am ahead this year!
I am changing jobs in the new year and that is very exciting. I have been at my current job for 6 years and I feel it’s time for a change. I am really going to miss my current co-workers but we have vowed to stay in touch!
Okay, I am off to get ready for work! Hope you all have a stress free day!!!
I have been busy with work this week, I am in the process of changing jobs so I have had a lot of things to finish up before I move on to a new office in just under 2 weeks. I have a few little set of 4 x 4 mini Christmas Cards to share with you this morning…
Lots of heat embossing and Tim Holtz distress inks were used to make these. I thought it would be fun to string some beads and add them as an embellishment.
I hope you all are having a great week! Thanks so much for stopping by!
We are into December and now I feel more like trying to get ready for Christmas. Not that I have a lot to get ready for, my Children are all grown and I don’t really have that many gifts to buy and I like to keep the decorating down to a minimum because the clutter drives me insane. Actually, in truth, I can be quite a bit of a Grinch! LOL! The insanity of shopping for a bunch of stuff that people really do not need makes me crazy and stressed out. My friend Carol says that I have such difficulty buying gifts because I try to hard, but it just kicks you in the butt when you see the gift you give someone at their spring yard sale! LOL! I am a big fan of homemade gifts so I think I am going to try to go with more of that this year.
Okay, enough gab from me….
For once, I am totally ahead with my Christmas cards! I have been crafting up a storm and have quite a few ready! I am finishing up a bunch for my Mom to give to our family as well. This snowman got a lot of use this year Unfortunately it is discontinued but I am sure something equally beautiful will come out for next year.
I am off to get ready for work! Have a fantastic day and thanks for stopping by!
Good Morning All!
Happy Friday! I thought I would take a break from posting Christmas cards and post a pretty card that I made using my Hello Doily Stamp….
This is one of my go to cards, I make these in several colors and keep a bunch of them in my stash for birthday cards for my special friends. I have several card designs that I keep for this purpose. I made these in purple as well and I also like to make them in blue.
Well I am off to get ready for work! I hope you all have a great day!
I have a quick post for you this morning before I head off to work. Kim got in some lovely new stamp sets this week and one really caught my eye. I love beautiful sentiments and this she got a set in that would work perfect on the longer cards I have been making lately. This card measures 8 1/2 by 4″.
Sorry about the quality of this picture, I have trouble getting a good shot of the all white cards in my light box so this one was taken in my dining room.
This is a very quick and simple card to make up when you are in a hurry to get your cards done. Just a couple of score lines, heat emboss the sentiment and pop on the poinsettia and a few gems and you are done! I added some pretty sparkle shimmer mist to give it that finished touch.
I hope you all have a great day and thanks so much for stopping by!
Hey Blog Friends!
I have been posting so much for The Cutting Garden, I am getting behind with posting to my own blog! I am heavy into class mode for Kim at the store! The Christmas rush is on and everyone is asking for classes because they want to get their Chirstmas cards done! Here’s another class that I am putting on at The Garden….
This is a really simple mini stamp a stack where the ladies will go home with 5 of each of these cards. I hope some of what I post here gets you inspired to get crafty!
Have a fantastic day and thanks so much for stopping by!!!
I have a fun Friendship Christmas Card to share with you this morning before I head off to work….
I decided to use my Prima Dolls to make some pretty friendship Christmas Cards. Using my Cameo makes it so much easier to cut them out Check out the pretty glitter Christmas paper that My Mind’s Eye has out this year! Kim has loads of this in stock at the moment so grab some up before it’s gone!
I am off to get ready for work! I hope you all are having a fantastic week!
Good Morning Crafty Friends!
I have been such a lazy blogger these days! I have loads of things to share with you buy I just haven’t settled in to set up any blog posts. Here is a peek at an upcoming class that I am putting on for Kim at the Cutting Garden…
This one is going to be a bit of a mini stamp a stack as we will be making 5 of each of these cards. It should be a fun class, we always have a lot of laughs.
Today is day 28 of being a non smoker… Tony and I are still doing great and staying strong! I am off to work again today so I had better get my act in gear and hit the shower.
I hope you all have a fantastic day and thanks for stopping by!
Good Morning! Happy Wednesday!
I have a quick post for you this morning as I am as usual, busy getting ready to head off to work…
This is three cards that I put together for an upcoming class at The Cutting Garden. I have managed to make some extra for my Christmas card stash as I am seriously behind with this!
I hope you all are having a great week and thanks so much for stopping by!
Good Morning! I have been in a bit of a funk, not spending any time in my craft room at all. Tony and I have quit smoking and we are almost 3 weeks smoke free and have been kind of adjusting. I have been in bed early all week feeling quite tired but I think we are just a bit “off” our usual game LOL! Oh well…. I am sure we will settle out soon.
I have a couple of cards to share with you this morning….
These are really fun cards to make and quite easy now that I have my Cameo cutting the dolls out!
I am off to work today so I am off to get ready. I hope you all have a fantastic day and thanks so much for stopping by!
