Tis Christmas Eve...







are you all ready? I think I finally am...got the DH's card done (after waiting until next to the last minute!), and made inserts for the girls' cards. We have been to Christmas Eve service, and now are watching "A Christmas Carol"...the BEST one, with George C. Scott as Scrooge. Most excellent! Here is a pic of the girls after we got home tonight...ain't they purty? Not that I'm prejudiced or anything...lol!




Also, here are a couple pics of DH's card...a front view and a more sideways view to show some of the glitter. This was made using a napkin that I bought last year, just for this purpose! :) I hope he likes it! Anyway, to all my friends out there in blog-land, Merry Christmas! May you all be blessed with peace and joy, and remember the reason for this season. Toodles!

Three more wonderful cards!







I have just recently received these beauties in the mail from the following awesome ladies:
The snowman came from my Paper Craft Planet friend, Marion. What a lovely lady she is! All her cards are fantastic, and when I specifically asked for this one, she agreed to send it to me! Thanks Marion!
The holly card is from another CoC friend, Annette. She colored all the leaves and berries, and the branch so very well! Thanks Annette!
And the cute little mouse came from CoC member and friend Suzy. Isn't he adorable all bundled up for winter? Thank you Suzy!
Well, only (almost) 2 more days to go until the BIG DAY! Are you all done with your preparations? I finally got DH's secret presents wrapped, but still need to wrap the ones he already knows about, lol! The girls' presents are all wrapped and waiting...too bad they have to wait until after I get home from work that day, sometime after 10 AM. Stinks, huh? Such is life, I guess. Well, until next post, toodles all!

Christmas cards...























I wish I knew how to arrange this better! Anyhow, here are the Christmas cards I have received to celebrate the season. That gorgeous iris folded tree up top is from my friend Robyn from Circle of Crafters . The cutie patootie card with the caroling trio is from Dolly, another friend from CoC. The adorable snowman is from Jill, yet another CoC friend. I have made alot of friends on that site! Hmm, now that I think about it, all these cards are from CoC friends...DUH! Ok, so on with it then...the angel choir is from Mary; the snowmen plate card is from Janet; the dove is from Cathy; the bunny and birdie are from my bestest bud Carol; and last but not least the Christmas Cheer card is from Pat. I cherish all these wonderful cards from my wonderful friends...in case I don't get back on to blog before the BIG DAY, Merry Christmas to everyone! Toodles!

Long time...




no blogging! I just wanted to pop on to show you my latest cards.
The snowflake card was requested by my boss, for a winter wedding in her family. I saw one similar on the Cuttlebug Challenge blog fairly recently, and thought it would be perfect for such an occasion. My boss really likes it anyway! As for the Thinking of You card, I was inspired by the totally awesome Jennifer McGuire for this one! Her style is so crisp and clean...I just love it! This card was also requested by my boss ( I think she's one of my biggest fans!), for a friend who's going thru a rough time. Well, thanks for having a look, and I hope you stop by again! Toodles!
