And His Name

Hi Everyone

Glad to be here today. Ugh, We got snow last night – not much – just a dusting. I thought the weather man was kidding, or wrong as usual. No Way – he hit the mark last night.

You know I used to live in South Dakota (10 years) where we would get snow anytime from October through Memorial Day.

When I moved here to Indiana 2 1/2 years ago – just outside Indianapolis – I thought my snow days were over, at least until the months of January or February. I really really dislike snow.

If you had to scrape your car windows every day – before and after work – basically anytime you needed to go somewhere and shovel snow off your sidewalk and driveway – – I think you would get tired of the snow and dislike it as much as I do. I didn’t have to shovel my driveway as I had a gravel driveway, but I had a big deck 10′ x 20′ that had to be shoveled. Anytime the snow plows would clear the streets – they always left snow piled up at the end of the driveways.

Now imagine – single lady with a snow drift 7 feet high and usually 3 to 5 feet in depth covering the end of your driveway. There is no way I or anyone else could shovel that much snow away. My son spent 3 days shoveling the snow drift to no avail. Thank god businesses were closed because of the weather as there was no way my car was going anywhere. I finally called the trailer park owner and asked if something could be done for me. Woot Woot – would you believe he sent a guy with a bobcat to open up my driveway.

Imagine this scenario happening on a regular basis – Ohhhh – I soooo dislike snow even if it is just a dusting.

Well, on to better things…….

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
