I’m back baby!!

No I haven’t actually really gone anywhere but I think things are possibly back to normal now…I hope.

First good news is that my father in law came home yesterday from the hospital, after a long five weeks of recovering from bacterial and viral pneumonia. So that’s awesome to have him home again.

We all survived throught the christmas holidays, the weather was pretty decent for travelling and we have some snow now so the girls and I were out yesterday playing in it. Still a bit too fluffy to make a snow man, but we tried. It looks more like a hill, lol.

There’s some boxing week sales that I would love to get too. Like Michaels’ has all their storage stuff on for 50% off. So I’m sitting in my craft room brainstorming, but I don’t think I have the space for anything more…so then I thought of my mother in law and she has a room downstairs just waiting to be transformed so she no longer needs to work at her dinning room table. Well, she still could but this gives her a spot so she can leave her “mess” 😉 out and no one needs to worry about it. Plus I’m dying to transform that room.  It would be sooo much fun.

I have lots of cards that I wanted to post before christmas but then time just got out of my hands. So now that I have a bit of time again here we go. Starting with some CC Designs.

Sorry if these pics are kinda all over the place. I’ll post some more tomorrow maybe. Or maybe even later today…we’ll see how the day goes. 🙂 Thanks for stopping by, hopefully you all had a great Christmas and are ready to bring in the New year.

Where have I been…

Good morning my friends. I feel old saying this but wow, where has the time gone?!

We’ve had some illness in our family, everyone seems to be doing alright now. But it was kinda scary for a bit there. It’s not pleasant at any time of year to have loved ones sick. But especially at Christmas it makes it a bit tougher.  Were hangin in there though. Lots of supportive friends and family, thanks everyone for your support.

So I have been very busy making lots of cards, 40 to be exact and I would like to get another five done. My hubby took them over to the post office this morning. Did you know that it cost more to mail the square envelopes…I did not. So if you get a square card this year you know you must be worth the extra postage. lol 😉

This is one of the many styles of cards that I did this year. I used this High Hopes stamp that I got from SGD back in the summer. I remember colouring these one day out in the back yard while the girls played. So they have been done for quite some time.

I added a flourish and a snow flake with a small gem. The paper is unknown.

So be sure to check back soon I hope to post all my card that I have made this holiday season. There are lots.

Have a great day.

Hello everyone, I’m falling behind on my posting. It’s a busy time of year so I haven’t had much time to play. Sad isn’t it. I ‘ve been working on some Christmas cards, but don’t have nearly enough made yet. Hopefully I’ll get them done in time.

So today’s card is what YOU could be making (free!) Saturday afternoon at SGD One year Anniversary Party. You don’t want to miss it.
