WOW…is time ever moving fast!!!  November tomorrow!!  I figured I had better get busy and get working on some Christmas cards made.

Here are two I did last week.


The image for this one is from Bonibleaux Designs. I love this image!! LOL!


DSCF1398-kimr I used my mini bells I got from Stampin Up.

The second card is made with a free digital sentiment from the newest issue of Paper Crafts Magazine.  The flower I made using a new flower punch from EK Success. Because if the depth of the flower this would not be a card you would want to mail!


Close up of the flower.


Hope you are all having a great Monday!

Bye for now!

Welcome Baby

This weekend I worked on this baby gift container to put a baby gift in  for a friend of mine. She had a sweet little girl a few weeks ago.

Here are some pictures.



I used a coffee tin to make this and covered it with some dp by K&Company.  I used a Spellbinder label die and put babies initials on it.  I put ribbon bows below the handle on each side, added flowers and other trims. It was a lot of fun to make.

Thanks for dropping in!

Then Saturday about lunch time out daughter, Holly, husband Brad and out two Grandkids Avery and Quinn arrived. The house went from very quiet to LOUD very fast!!! LOL!

Sunday my brother, Brian and his daughter  Jen came to join the fun!  We had our Thanksgiving meal with all the trimmings !!  Needless to say we were all stuffed and not moving very much!!!

There is nothing better than good food and good company to make a day very special!

The last of the family left today and now we are back to a very quiet house…….just Harry, myself and our two fur babies………….hmmmmm…………Christmas……………..
