Merry Christmas

One child down. The second getting ready. Mom and dad heading to the hot tub for a little relax before bed.  Then tuck in so Santa can come. It will be an early morning.
Merry Christmas to everyone.  Hope you all have a joyous day tomorrow.

Beautiful Sunset to End the Day

Good afternoon everyone.  As I sit here at the dining room table, I look up to this beautiful sunset.  What a beautiful picture.  It's been a long day.  Since today was our day for the teachers strike, all elementary schools were closed.  Sleep in, yah.  Not, Fedex shows up knocking at the door at 8am to deliver a package I ordered to my daughter.  Now because she was here she now's I ordered from her long list of on-line Christmas presents. Doctors appointment for a check up.  Shopping for Christmas gifts with the little guy.  He managed to find something for his sister and dad.  When we got home he had a friend over for the afternoon.  We replaced the wood chips in the lizard tank to carpeting.  Made chocolate chip cookies for the bake table at the badminton tournament on Saturday.  A few loads of laundry thrown in.  Hubbies been away for a couple days and will be home later tonight.  So dinner is fend for yourself.  Leftover night.  And early to bed.

First Snow Day of the Year

Good evening every.  A quick post then I'm off to watch some TV with my little man who is sick.  Why is it that kids always throw up all over the floor when they are standing right beside an object they can use to catch the mess.  Last night he was right beside the garbage can.  But instead of lifting the lid and letting it fly, it ended up all over the floor beside the garbage can.
 Through the night we had freezing rain, which cancelled all buses in the area today. Giving the kids a long weekend.  It will be a short week this week for them because it was anounced this afternoon that Thursday is our day for the teachers to walk out.  So schools are closed on Thursday.  I don't agree with what the government did.  But I also don't agree with the teachers taking it out on the kids.  Withholding  all extra activities, and now walking out for a day.  It has been very stressful for alot of kids. 
Enough on that.  The card I want to share today is this beautiful deer.  His antlers didn't cut the best.  Love the look of the black and white.  Looks like he is standing in front of a giant moon. Wish I had more time to play with my silhouette.  I love piecing all the parts together.
Time to go.  Hoping for clear skies tomorrow.

Wondering in the Woods

Afternoon everyone.  What do you do when you need to dust your house?  Sand the window down with a power sander to make a layer of sawdust on the entire house.  What was I thinking? 

Anyway, here is my card for today.  Was I able to finish up the cards I was working on yesterday.  Isn't this little guy just the cutest.  Another creation using my Cameo.

Back to work tomorrow.  Off to the school in the morning to count the money from the Christmas Raffle tickets. And to work in the afternoon. 

happy crafting

Winter Wonderland

Afternoon everyone.  What a dreary day we are having here.  It has rained all day.  So much for the snow we got last week.  It is pretty much gone now.  I have had the day off. Spent some time this morning playing with my silhoutte.  It really is a fun machine.   I'm working on reindeer today. 

I just love the dimensional cards.  Piecing together all the pieces.  Until my last on line order when I purchased this image, I have always just used the foam squares that I pick up at the local craft store.  Well I've always thought them to be too thick, but used them because thats what I had.  At the Christmas Card Class we used pieces of scrap cardstock on a card to lift it a bit.  What a brilliant idea.  Then when I was looking through all the decoupage card sets I noticed they had a thinner foam square.  Not realizing when I purchased just how thin they were.  I LOVE THEM.  MY next order will include more, just so I never run out.

stay dry
