Christmas Wishes

Hi Everyone

I had a fun day today. First I had the Women’s Bible Study Class today and then we went out for lunch. We ended up at Cracker Barrel. Oh my, it was sooo good. I had this new item – it was fish cooked in a pecan crust thingy. Oh Wow – my mouth waters just thinking about it. It was really delicious.

I think fall is finally here. It’s getting cold at night and warming up in the day but not getting hot anymore. The leaves are turning and falling off the trees. I love the colors of fall – especially the trees, but I hate to see summer leave. I get cold really easy – so I don’t like cold weather. Once I get cold, it takes forever to get warm – not looking forward to the cold weather. I love Christmas though and that’s what kind of card I have today. If any of you are Stampin’ Up Demonstrators. This is my case of the the card in Stampin Success (a magazine for Stampin’ Up Demonstrators only) page 27.

Merry Christmas

Hi Everyone

How’s it going for everyone? I’m doing just peachy keen. I love that saying – peachy keen. I think I got it off of Laverne and Shirley or maybe Grease for you that are old enough to remember those shows. They were great fun shows. 

I have two cards for you they are the same but different. The layout slightly varies on each one and I used different colors on each one.  I like the first one better and my husband likes the second one best. Which one do you like best? Anyways, I hope you enjoy them.

Happy Holidays

Hi Everyone

 

Oh my – it’s Friday already. Anyone have anything exciting going on this weekend? I get to have a fun-filled crafting weekend. I get to craft to my heart’s desire. Woo Hoo. Weather is supposed to be nice, too. In the 70’s both days. Mmmm, that sounds like good days to do some outdoor stuff – like a picnic in the park. I love picnics. My hubby has never been on a picnic where you sit on a blanket and eat off paper plates. I have tried to get him to go on a picnic (he says he would like to go on a picinie) but he just won’t go. He seems to always come up with an excuse. Wow, we did that growing up – it was sooo much fun!

My card is no where close to making you think of nice weather. In fact, it will make you think of cold and snow – but fun. Originally I made this card for the Church Craft Nite, but I  changed my mind about it. I thought it might be just a little bit too advanced for a beginner stamper and I don’t know – if any – of the people that sign up will know anything about stamping or not.  Ok, here’s my card 🙂

Watermark Portrait-001

And ……….. like the other cards ………. this card has retired Stampin’ Up products and products that are non – Stampin’ Up. That means – no product list.

Well……   That’s it for today and I hope you enjoyed my post. Please leave me a comment and let me know what you think about my post. If there is anything you need or want just email me at: cynthia.hawkins999@gmail.com

Hi Everyone

Woo Hoo ……… got another card today. Did you know that this Sunday – 13 Oct is Pastor’s Appreciation Day? You know what – I sure didn’t. I found out during our Bible Study Class this week. This is the card I am going to give to my Pastor and his wife for being sooo awesome. I chose the colors based on Mary’s Colorful Saturday Challenge. Please stop by Mary’s blog and do the challenge with me and see all the eye candy she has. 🙂

Hello

Hi Everyone

How’s it going today.? Wow, the weather here today is just gorgeous. It’s 69 degrees and the sun is shining. Just beautiful. Perfect for a picnic or to play in the park.  Great day for going to the zoo. Any outside activity would do as long as you don’t have to sit on some cold bleachers. 🙂

Today’s card reminds me of a pretty spring or summer day.

A Very Merry Christmas To You

Hi Everyone

Woo Hoo!!

I made another card yesterday. This is really really fun. I know you have missed a lot of Stampin’ Up specials since I have been gone. I promise I will get  back to posting them. But today I have another card for you.

A Very Merry Christmas

Now this is embarrassing. I totally forgot to write down the products I used for this card. I will do better tomorrow. 🙂
