Hi Everyone

100 lashes with a wet noodle for me for being gone so long. I am really sorry about my absence. I have no good reason, and I do thank all of you for not abandoning me.

Did everyone have a great Thanksgiving. I know I certainly did. We went to a friend’s house (that I met at church- woo hoo)  and spent the day with her and her family. We just sat around and ate good food and talked about all the nothings in the world.

Today’s cards I cased from Connie Stewart. She has a video showing you how to make 4 cards with 3 pieces of paper (2 neutral and 2 half sheets of color). Isn’t that awesome. She is a wonderful lady and has such enthusiasm. You can see her cards and video here. Here’s my take on her cards.

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.

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.
