I miss the sun….

I’m am so tired of rain. I actually like rainy days most of the time… especially if I can stay at home in my pjs. 🙂 However, last night Matt and I were trying to figure out the last time the sun was out … and we could not remember! I’m lucky that today is my day off so I don’t have to go out in the windy, wet world today (actually I do have to go to the dump later — such fun!), but I had such a hard time getting up this morning. If a VERY loud truck hadn’t stopped outside the house about an hour ago I might still be sleeping! And you know what… on these rainy days I find it very difficult, though, to stay away from the afternoon nap! 🙂 Anyway, I selected a bright, cheery card to share with you today. This is one of the cards I made at the crop a few weeks ago. I used my big shot and the flower burst embosslit to make the flowers. I also cut my Old Olive striped ribbon in half so the edges would fray — I loved how it looks. There’s actually

Hmmm… what to share today?

Happy Sunday morning with an extra hour of sleep to you! I am very thankful it was daylight savings time last night as I stayed up until 2 a.m.! So that extra hour came in very handy this morning. 🙂 I’m excited that I have a workshop with one of my dearest friends today. It should be lots of fun. We are doing Christmas projects of course, but I thought I’d share this little cutie I made at the crop a few weekends ago. It uses the Pun Fun stamp set — it’s an oldie, but really is a good one. This cute little lamb image says “Thank Ewe” — cute, huh? I of course had to add some glitter to his wool and layered on some fun Rich Razzleberry cardstock — I’m not usually a big purple fan, but this card really struck my fancy. I sent it to one of the lucky online shoppers last month. That’s just one of the little perks of ordering from my online Web site… I send you a little thank you card and guess what? I don’t even write in it — I usually write on a Post It note so you

‘Tis the Season

Greetings blog friends (that sounds like I’m a martian or something!)… Anyway, I hope the morning of mid-week Wednesday finds you doing well. I am busy, busy, busy preparing for LOTS of upcoming events! I’m talking workshops, scrapbooking crops, classes, and craft fairs! All within the next three weeks. It’s all good. I’m so happy that my business has really been booming this year — I hope it continues into 2011. Believe it or not, when I was deciding what to post today I found myself thinking, “Oh I should post these Christmas cards soon because it’s getting late in the season.” Really? It’s only Nov. 3! As I mentioned in this post, though, I tend to get way ahead of myself with the seasons…. I’m already thinking about Valentine’s Day! Oh well. Today’s card is one of my favorite of this year. It includes our new Deck the Hall fabric (the scallop edge under the ribbon). It also has lots and lots of layers, which is always fun. I used the Winter Post stamp set (another one of my favorites!) Colors on this one are Cherry Cobbler, Always Artichoke and Very Vanilla – classic, I think… what about you?
