Christmas Card

Happy Sunday everyone!  I hope everyone has had a wonderful weekend!  I have had a low key weekend of cleaning, crafting and cooking.  I started making Christmas cards and  I am sharing one I made last weekend.   I have made almost 50 cards over the last two months.  I am hoping for another 50 to finish out 100 total.  I also finally took pictures of the ones I made.  I made this one with a shaker.  I had gotten the stuff to make them years ago and had not made one.  I am really happy how they came out.  
 I wish everyone a wonderful week and if you are up North I hope you did not get lots of snow and still have your power!

Good Saturday morning!  I am posting a Birthday card today.  I made this card back in Sep for my friend Kim's Birthday which was this past week.  As you see she turned the big 50!  We had fun celebrating her day at work and the party continues tonight as we get together again to celebrate! 
I am addicted to my Papertrey Die. I love using them in most of the cards I make these days!  I find them easy to use and they are really versatile.  You can use them for anything!  Well I am off to finish laundry and head to the gym for a yoga class! Have a great day!  Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Friday my friends!  It has been a busy work week for me!  Today I was happy to finish my work week by taking a class!!  So I was home a little earlier than I am usually since class was out a little earlier than my normal work day.  That has to make you smile on a Friday!
I have been doing a lot of crafting in the past few weeks. Here is one of the cards that I have down load to the computer. I used my Bloom Builders # 3 die and Fillable Frames # 5 die from PTI. Which I seem to be using a lot these days! I just love these flowers are so cool! This card just makes me think girly girl!!
Thanks for stopping by!  Have a wonderful weekend!!

A long weekend of fun!

Happy October!  I hope everyone is enjoying the first days of October!  I have had the past four days off and it has been wonderful!  I needed a few days to recharge my batteries and get a few things done at home. Of course that turned into lots more time in my craft room.  I managed to spend at least an hour a day in there!  I was so happy with my results!  I also had fun with friends and just hanging out at home!  I did also get some canning done as well.  Below are the results of my weekend!  
The top picture is the peach butter and pickles I canned today.  Can not wait to see how the pickles came out!  The peach butter is wonderful!!  The bottom picture is a card I made for part of a gift.  I used  the sentiment from MFT and the wine glass from  Gina K.  The ribbon I have had for a while and the DP came from Archivers.  I hope you have a wonderful week!  Thanks for stopping by!
