Still Thinking of You!


I'm just getting into the mode to make Christmas Cards, LOL! I did this last year too. It's just something about the Holiday that brings it out in me. Much easier for me to make my Christmas cards right after Christmas so that's just what I'm working on this week. It sure helped last year to get all my cards designed and pretty much finished during December and January however, I still had cards to make this November for my Mom so this year I hope to do both of ours for next year. This sketch is from H2H Challenges from this Summer. Of course, I'm still playing with my CTMH Jingle scraps! Supplies: Paper: CTMH Jingle, Stamps: CTMH Merry Pursuits, CTMH Bitty Sparkles, Misc Ribbon and Snowflake

Happy (Almost) New Year!


Oh Fun Memories....this was last year's CTMH Holiday Paper - Jingle! It's still one of my FAVORITE papers and I love using it although I cringe a little as I'm slowly using it up...LOL! (Roll Eyes Here!) BUT I KNOW you KNOW what I mean. There's just something about using your favorite paper and wondering if you'll ever find more? I do like this years, Mistletoe but it's more traditional colors and although it's pretty, it's just not this bright and colorful Jingle. A few of my friends are getting this CUTE Happy New Year Card from me. I think the sketch is from Cute Card Thursday and I apologize I didn't write down the date. Since it snowed here today with more coming tomorrow, it seemed only fitting to use my CTMH Snow Friends stamps. I'm sending a Shout Out with this card to my stampin' friends over at Heart2Heart Challenges Blog as they have a fun challenge going until Jan 3 to upload your favorite Holiday Cards! Supplies: CTMH Jingle, CTMH Snow Friends Stamps, CTMH Sparkles, Stickles, CTMH Tulip Big Brads, CB Snowflakes Folder

Home for the Holidays!


Whew, I can't believe it's been over 2 months since I last posted! I got busy in October with new responsibilities for work and somehow that "sucked the life" right out of my MOJO! I've tried, I've seriously tried but nothing seemed to work. I did get my Christmas cards made and sent out and have just started working on some Happy New Year Cards so I'm hoping to report I'm back....I just wanted to post tonight for Christmas Eve and wish all of you Merry Christmas! Life seems to be more back to normal pace so I plan to be back to posting regularly in January. I hope you enjoy your holidays! This card design came from MOJO Monday #164. Supplies: Paper: CTMH Mistletoe; Stamps: CTMH Snow Days, Holiday Commentary; Stickles, CTMH Bitty Sparkles, CB Dot Folder

I've Arrived!

In my usual fashion, late but with a GREAT story to tell. I didn't join the bloggers of the world until now because what would I have to share, at the time, I didn't think anything...well...I've changed my mind. I do want to share with all my friends and family-- my thoughts, creations and ideas. So, welcome to my World.

We'll Live, Love and Laugh 4 Life together!

Looking out the Living Room Window I realized today was a good day to get those projects I've been putting off DONE! It was beautiful to look at but I sure didn't want to get out in it this morning! Good thing I was on vacation.
