Merry Christmas!

Hi, there!

I hope you are all doing well on this fine Monday afternoon!  How's all the Christmas preparations going?  I'm doing my best to keep ahead of the game.  I'm just hoping that the weather cooperates for a church program that I participate in this coming Sunday.  We could get either rain or snow.  I'm hoping we get the rain this time around.  

Last weekend I spent Saturday with some friends and made more Christmas cards.  I have a twofer for you today.  They are new and with the above card a lady offered to let me borrow the wonderful candy cane die from Hero Arts after she looked at my peeking snowman card from Hero Arts as seen below for inspiration. 

I'm entering my card over at NBUS Challenge.

For the above card, I added greenery from Spellbinder's and the sentiment dies are from Elizabeth Craft Designs.  Both the greenery and the candy canes are new.  Gems to finish the card.

Next up...

The adorable peeking snowman die is from Hero Arts, also.  The pierced snowflake plate is from Pretty Pink Posh.  I colored the snowman with copics.  

Ok, well that's all for now.  Thanks so much for dropping by!  Have a great week!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving to all my USA friends!  May you all have a wonderful blessed Thanksgiving!  So grateful for all of my family and friends!  

We'll be leaving this afternoon to go to our son's place a few hours away.  All I'm bringing is pumpkin pie and some soft sugar cookies.  We'll help him prepare the meal.  I just love his sweet potato casserole and creamed corn, yum!  Anyways, whatever you are doing for the holiday may you have a great time!

I have a very simple card to share.  I made this using Echo Park paper and added dots.  

Well, that's all for now.  Thanks so much for your support of my blog and your sweet comments!  I'm so grateful for all of you!  Take good care!

Merry Christmas!

Hi, there!

How are you doing on this fine November day?    I'm doing well here watching the leaves fall while looking out the window.  Soon the leaves will be gone and snow will be falling.  I won't try to think about the snow yet!  But, I am thinking of Christmas and would like to share with you two stitched cards that I made.  I do love the stitch dies from Spellbinder's, so fun!  I'm sharing one of the cards over at NBUS.

Next up, I'd like to share a couple crochet hand towels that I made.  My sis wanted a couple and so did a lady that I visit from church.  

I made these two with cardinals and I made several with a coffee theme.  I'm trying to get a head start on Christmas this year with gifts and baking.  Yesterday, I baked five dozen soft sugar cookies.  I will freeze them and frost them later.  I know I will be baking more, but at least I got started.

I did have a wonderful birthday last weekend with a wonderful dinner in Columbus with my husband, son, and his friend.  It was also a special stay at the one hotel nearby where my niece works.  She gave me a discount and my one sis had a special surprise in the fridge with perrier water and a meat/fruit plate, so sweet!  I see my sisters this coming Friday for my birthday get-together.  I'm looking forward to it!  And, thank you to my sweet friends here in blogland for the birthday cards and wishes!

Ok, friends, thanks so much for taking the time to drop by!  Take care and have a great day!

Coffee Lovers Blog Hop-Fall/Winter! (2023)

Hi, Friends!

I'm back again today with another card, but this one is for the Coffee Lovers Blog Hop Fall/Winter 2023!  I recently purchased the Holiday Mug Additions die set from Pretty Pink Posh.  I just love how you can make a reindeer mug or a Santa mug with the wonderful cute dies!  My favorite coffee drink is Starbuck's peppermint mocha...yum!  And, that is exactly what this reindeer mug is holding today!  All stamps and dies are from PPP except for the frame die, which is from MFT.

Here is a closer photo...

You can see the pierced snowflake background in this photo.  The die is from PPP, also.

I had tons of fun making this card for the coffee blog hop and it's great seeing all the wonderful creations!

Thanks so much for dropping by!  Take care, hugs!
