Well, it's the first snowy day of the season... and a great day to sit on the couch, wrapped up in a blanket, with the laptop. We've had a busy week with Thanksgiving and all. We got to go to mom and dad's brunch... then went to Dave's parents for awhile that afternoon. I went shopping on Friday... and I don't think I'll ever do that again! It's not worth trying to fight for the deals... especially when you find the exact same thing only cheaper @ the next store! I did get a lot of Christmas shopping done... but, I was exhausted Friday night! We went to a friend's wedding last night in Springfield. It was beautiful (but, what wedding isn't?) and we had a great time. Most importantly, I wore the cutest shoes... and they weren't even that uncomfortable! I work with all these girls... let me just say that there is never a dull moment! I love 'em!
Over the past week I have had some time to work on a few cards... I made this one for a home gathering make and take... it is so easy. It's a 3x3 card that would be perfect for a gift tag... If anyone is wanting to save some money this season, one way to do that is to make your gift tags. All you need is 2-3 colors of cardstock, one ink, and a small stamp. I just added the ribbon as an extra touch, but this would be cute without it.
I had a baby shower earlier in the month, and there is nothing more fun than to make cards for a baby! One is 3x3 and one is 5 1/2x4 1/4...
And finally... I made a card for the wedding that we went to and for my nieces birthday. Everything is Close To My Heart, except I used a different company's stamp for a couple of the flourishes (on the wedding card)... but I absolutely love the way they turned out! Same idea and sketch for both.
Hope this finds everyone well and hope everyone is getting prepared for Christmas! It's right around the corner. Also, as well as wishing a happy birthday to Lexi... Happy 39th anniversary to mom and dad!!! Blessings and thanks for looking!
