Thanksgiving Cards

Here are a few Thanksgiving cards I have made.

This one measures 5 inches by 7 inches. I used some what monochromatic colors for this leaving the image uncolored.

This one has the same image only colored. Once again, I have used DCWV paper pad, this one is the fall one.

this one I used just the paper to enhance the card with a saying that was included in the paper pad, I just cut the saying out and matted them. This card measures 5 inches by 7 inches.

This card I used the scraps left over from the card above. Worked out pretty good. Monocramatic colors used in this card measuring 5 1/2 inches square. The greeting for the card was from Close to My Heart's Say It In Style stamp set.

Once again I like to thank you for stopping by. May God Bless.

The penguins are here!

And they are bringing in some holiday cheer!

I found these adorable guys in a DCWV Glitter paper pad. So I had to bring them to life. What do you think? LOL.

Here is what I did to dress up the insides. Pretty cool wouldn't you say (play on words here) I used my winter embossing folder on my cardstock.

This guy is ringing in some cheer! I really liked this stack of papers.

Here is the inside again same as the other. Why fix something that isnt broken? LOL.

Thank you for stopping by to check out my blog. I hope you have a blessed day.

Penny Black cards

Here are some Penny Black cards I made. I think these are versatile.

these can be used as birthday wishes, or for other occassions you may want to include a gift. This one is more feminine.

Not to leave the masculine popularity out, here is one for the guys.

Thanks for stopping by and visiting my little corner of the blogisphere! We are still in the thresholds of a tropical storm, so my day here is rain, wind and more rain. May you have a fabulous day no matter what mother nature may be throwing at you.

There's a mouse in the house!

Well actually 4! Here are the start of my Christmas cards for this year. House Mouse has these cute little mice with a Christmas flavor.

I have the first three the same images, only the papers and the coloring is different. I like the not so traditional colors, but had to see how the traditional red and green would look. I must say I do like them. Arn't they cute little buggers?

This is using the traditional colors.

I must say I love the shades of purple (love that color)!

I also like the color blue with my christmas cards. I think these came out very cute.

Ok, so I have these 4 done, now only 246 more to go! Oh dear, must go for now. I Think I need to put a pot of coffee on! Where's my trimmer? I know I got a pad of DCWV christmas paper, but where is it? Excuse me folks for now. You all have a wonderful night, and may you all be blessed!


Here are some girls I have been working on. Arn't they cute? LOL. Here are the four of them together.

Here is one that is my favorite thing to do . . . go shopping! Although my stuff would be scrappbooking supplies and embellishments!

Here is another cakeabella. Which reminds me, I will be baking a birthday cake for Emily soon. She will be 4 years old the 9th of October! I wonder what theme it will be? Maybe I should ask her, or perhaps I shall surprise her. Whatever it will be it will be chocolate, as this is what she has asked for!

Here is teachabella, in celebration of all the teachers all over the world! Hee hee. Love school and the quiet times at daycare! Especially when the little ones are napping! Now if I could get them to nap at the same time!

Here is underthe hoodybella. I need this desperately! Dottie! Get better fast! My hair needs you! I need you! Excuse me folks for that plea. I will try to get a grip. LOL.

Now how do you like my glitzy girls? Please leave me a message and let me know.

Hope you all are having a wonderful day.

Rainy Saturday

Another week has gone by the wayside already! An update on my tooth, the swelling has gone down, however, the pain is on again off again. Still have a few more days on the meds. Will call the dentist on Monday to set up an appointment for the tooth to be removed along with all the other teeth that is broken. I really have a hard time with visits such as these and tend to put them off way longer than I should. Hence the reason I had an abscessed tooth to begin with.

I have made several cards this past week and will take pictures of them when I can work out the lighting for my camera, so you can see the glitz and glitter. I love getting ready for Christmas, from the card making to the gift giving. When I start early enough I have enough cards to box up and give as gifts as well. And that makes everyone happy!

May you day be merry and bright, weather the sun is shining in your world or not. Thanks for stopping by and may God bless.

Saturday September 20th, 2008

Don't you just love the weekends? I do! But maybe not this weekend, as I have an ulcerated eye tooth. boo hoo. The things I could have gotten accomplished! I am not able to work on more cards as the medication I am on makes me dizzy, and even sick, not to mention downright tired! I hope the penicillin works fast as I would like to go to church in the morning without this swollen face.

I hope all of you out there in the blogosphere has a great weekend, filled with family and lots of fun.

thanks for stopping by.

More pictures of Labor Day at Dad's

I found more pictures of Labor Day, 2008 of us at Dad's. This one was taken just before Emily told Dad that she liked her nose! LOL. Not sure if she was referring to his oxgen tubes or not. She had us laughing on the floor!

Here the girls and I are with Dad.

And this one with the girls and Dad with Patty.

Not to be left out is Scott and the girls enjoying some rays!

Once again I want to thank you for stopping by, and have a blessed day.

More family pictures

here we are going to the playground, it was a little walk.

Now we are at the playground, Destiny has found the slides and dried them out.

Emily is on her favorite the swings. She needed help getting on but not a push like Les is giving her. That gal can pump! Had to tell her to not go so high a few times.

Destiny had to climb this thing and when she got to the top she froze! Les helped her down (of course I was taking pictures of it).

Here is the picture my darling hubby took of me finishing my ride on the slide. Only more proof in the fact you can be immature forever!

I thank you all for visiting my blog. I hope you all have a blessed day.

A day at the campground

Sunday we went to Lake St. George campground to visit with the family. We had such a wonderful time there. First we chilled and chatted.

Then we chatted and chilled some more.

All of us chilled and chatted for probably the first 2 hours we were there. I have proof as seen here in these photos. What is that you say? Where am I? Why my dear, I am taking the pictures! LOL. Yes I know taking pictures can be hard work, but believe me I was chilling and chatting along with the rest of them.

and if you don't believe me, ask my hubby! He will tell you I can chill and chat along with the best of them.

Ok, so we did play too. We took the girls to the playground and we had a great time there! See I am up high on the playground equipment when I took this shot (see above photo).

We even went down the slide! LOL. Yes I had to try it myself. It was fun, even though I didn't fit like I used too! LOL. We had such a great time. I am feeling it today however, as my body is telling me I am no longer a child and will have to pay for all my fun.

Tiger Woods had filled her belly and decided to take a nap under the chair.

We all had a good time, and there was plenty to eat.

a weekend to remember

My husband's brother Jim and his wife Ellen, and sister Bea and her husband Harry were up this weekend. What a great time we had! The only one missing was Norma. She was missed. The girls had fun with them as well. Harry showed them how his camera worked and even let them wear his watch.

From left to right is Jim, Bea and my hubby Les.

Here is Jim and Ellen. Arn't they the nice looking couple?

and here is Harry and Bea. Look at the smiles on their faces! Cannot believe how long it has been since we have seen you all! I miss you guys!

I hope we can make this a yearly thing, where we all get together. Maybe even Norma can make it next time. Hint, Hint. LOL.

All I can say folks is we all had a super duper time! Thanks for comming up!
