Family and .....

 Happy Saturday!  I can not believe how fast the past few days have gone! I feeling like sometimes it just goes to fast!  My sister and her family just left, I went and dropped a few things in the mail and now I am sitting down to read and relax.  I love spending time with my sister and her family.  It is sad we live so far apart and can only do it a few times a year.  There are times in my life when I wish I lived closer to her and my Dad.  Well maybe some day!  We had a great Thanksgiving!  Lots of eating,playing and talking.  I have not had any craft time this week but sometimes I think family comes first!   Here are a few pictures of my week and a tag too!  I hope everyone has had a wonderful weekend!

These are two pictures of me and my nephews that we took with my computer's iphoto booth. We took so many it was hard to pick.  My older nephew was hard to keep still so this is the best I can show! The four year old was easier to get a good picture with.  This is one of my favorites! We made lots of silly faces!!

Here is another tag!  I love Papertrey's word dies! I hope they keep coming out with more.  All products are Papertrey except the pearls.  They came from my stash of stuff!  Thanks for stopping by!  More tomorrow!

Happy Thanksgiving Eve!!  I hope everyone has been having a wonderful week and you all are getting ready for the big day tomorrow!  We have reservations at 12:30 so there is not lots to do here!  Yay me!   I am spending the week with family and friends!  What a great time!  This evening I had dinner with a friend from High School!  We had a great time!  Tomorrow my sister and family arrive!  Today I am sharing another Christmas Card.  
This card I made using the window dies Poppystamps Window die. I bought both the small and large one.  I love how this came out!  I used the Papertrey Tree die.  I used a piece of plastic against the window and used flower soft for the snow.   I then used pop dots to pop it off the page.  This is a one of a kind.  I think I will send it to a friend who does not read my blog.  I think she will enjoy it!  Well I am off!  Have a great evening!!

Greetings!  Happy Tuesday!  Today I am sharing one of the tags that I have made for gifts this year!  I really love making these.  I love that I can use any shape die for tags.

For this tag I used Paper Trey's Christmas Label Die, The Tim Holtz Flower thingy( yeah not the really name sorry!), The button is Papertrey and the stamp set is Tim Holtz. I used glitter around the edges to make it pop.  I like that I can make these fast and quick!  Thanks for stopping by!  Have a great day!

Good Monday Morning! I hope everyone had a great weekend! I had a really low key one. After being up way late Friday night it took me all weekend to recover!  Boy I am so not in my 20's!  Those were the days when I could stay up until 1am or later and get up and go all weekend!  Today I am sharing one of the Christmas Cards I made this year.  I tend to make a few of each design to send out.

I love how simple this was! When I start to work on Christmas projects I die cut and gather all my embellishments ahead of time. I also try to have my paper cut and ready to go.  That way when I have a few minutes I can throw together a card, tag or something!  This is the week I really start to get into the Holiday time!  I am now looking forward to getting my house decorated for Christmas! Well I am off to workout and this afternoon I am headed to see Skyfall with my Dad!!   Have a great day!
