Gingerbread Men

Morning everyone.  Quick post this morning before heading off to work.  What a morning!  Worked last night.  So hubbie was in charge.  Somehow the little guy didn't get to bed on time. He was still awake when I got home just after 10.  What a grump this morning.  I sure was glad when he walked out the door to catch the bus.
So at 10:30 last night when I got home I sat down and whipped up a card.  Love this little one legged gingerbread guy from Graphicats.  The sentiment to go with him is so cute.  On the outside I put "everyone loves the gingerbread man cute and sweet with a golden tan", and on the inside "and if he gives you any flack, you can have him for a snack".  So cute.
On the run now.

Oh Christmas Tree

Afternoon everyone.  I've finally made it to the computer to get my card posted.  Yesterday was brutal.  I have not been so sick for years.  I couldn't even get out of bed.  Feeling better this after noon.  Body aches are almost gone. 

On the weekend I dusted off my silhouette for this one.  Took me awhile to figure out how to separate the images, but I got it done.  This is a cute whimsickle tree. So simple, I started with masking off the outside frame, and inking with my favorite blue and purple distress ink.  I then glued the image on and stamped the sentiment.  Voila.

Goodbye to our Dear Fenn

It's  been a sad weekend at our house.  Friday evening we had to make the decision to put our dear Fenn to sleep.  It's been a long struggle to try to heal her.  Trying everything, pills, cream, food change.  There was nothing else to do. Her hole just would not close up.  And finally when I could see it getting smaller for the first time in a long time, it blew open again.  There was nothing else for us to do.  You could see she was in pain again.  She is now at peace in the side yard, watching over her family.  And she will always be in our hearts.

Evening everyone.  Well we woke up to snow again this morning.  I knew we were to get it, but expected a little sciff.  It was actually big fluffy, and it's still on the ground.  I'm hoping it's not here to stay.  It's way too early.

My cards tonight are a couple of my favorites that I've made in previous years.  I just love the embossed tree on the silver paper. And blue jewels just add that little touch to it.

Snowman Poop

Good evening everyone.  A quick post before I run out the door to Parent Council Meeting.  Last night I managed to complete six tags.  The stamp is from graghicats.  I just love their stamps.  I actually bought it last year and never had the chance to use it.  So I thought it would be a cute idea for the craft sale this weekend.  I pieced the snowman, stamping the image several times on different dec paper.  This was a great job for in front of the TV.  My craft area is downstairs, but the main TV that we tape on the PVR is upstairs.  So I was able to watch TV while I cut out all my snowman pieces.  Off to my meeting, hoping for the dishes to be finished when I return.

happy stamping

Jolly Snowmen for Jingle Bells Challenge

Good afternoon everyone.  Well after being home for a week it's back to work today.  My first shift and I'm there till 10 tonight, and back in at 8 in the morning.  But we do what we have to. 
Yesterday all our snow was gone from Friday and it was clean up day.  Actually Saturday and Sunday were spent outside picking up the pine needles and all the summer stuff.  Reorganizing the shed, pulling all the winter stuff out and packing the summer stuff at the back.  There was alot of complaining from the kids because it was quite cool out, only +3C. 
Last night I managed to put this card together.  Love the sketch, nice and simple and clean.  Join in the sketch challenge over at Jingle Bells.  And I just noticed as I was retreiving the sketch pic that I missed the 3 embelishments on the top of the card.  Forgive me, but I don't have time to add it now.
  Here is the sketch.

Christmas Card Class

Evening everyone.  Here it is Saturday night, and two more sleeps till I have to go back to work.  A week goes so quickly.  And I have accomplished nothing.  Relaxed and had alot of me time.  Babysat my little man's new lizard.  He is the proud owner of a baby leopard gecko.  I didn't realize when I was researching that you had to feed the food too.  Finally today we got him to eat for the first time.  I think I'm as interested in the lizard as my son. 

Wednesday I went to a card class at the local craft store.  We completed 10 cards in 5 hours.  What a rush.  Last night I did some finishing touches to them that I didn't have time for at the class. It was a very enjoyable day.  Catching up with an old friend, learning new techniques, and brushing up on some old ones.

Here's a look at my cards.
