Wishing You A Merry Christmas!

Christmas fun with Work of Art!  It's almost September and I am now able to start thinking about Christmas cards.  It's still a little early but I think most people have purchased their cards by October so here's an idea for you that can be done in 15 minutes.

How have you all been?  I'm glad to see that the weather is starting to be a little less hot.  Yesterday my friend Chrys & I went to KC for a scrapbooking crop and had a wonderful day.  Lunch at Stroud's always helps with that, too.  Yesterday was my monthly shopping trip to Walmart.  Thankfully that is out of the way.  Today is physical therapy and will get to find out my therapist's baby gender.  I thought my appointment was yesterday so I showed up and found that I was wrong which made the necessary trip to Walmart much easier.    

Thanks to Shannon Cole for sharing her design.

God Bless America

Today I am feeling blessed to be able to create as much as I want.  I have the most wonderful friends and the best church family anywhere! May God bless each of you.

On tap for today is physical therapy and a trip to Dollar General and then home to do the dishes - ugh!

One of my goals is to declutter so I have come to the difficult decision of taking my scrapbooking and cardmaking magazines to be shredded.  I have several recyclable grocery bags ready to go to the car and taken to the shredder.  I'll have just one more load after that.  Yay!

Have a wonderful weekend everyone and may decluttering be a part of your weekend.  :)

I talk a lot about color because it is an integral part of my craft but I don't want to be repetitive so here's some BREAKING NEWS for you! This color combo today is sooo out of my comfort box. I'm referring to the Coastal Cabana with the more traditional colors of Real Red, Whisper White and Night of Navy.   Keeping the Coastal Cabana to a minimum makes the design more appealing to me. I hope you like it.

Thanks to Michele Reynolds for sharing her design.

Thank You For Your Kindness

I think I probably design most of my cards with a thank you sentiment of some sort, but I am so grateful for the small things and big things that I receive.  I appreciate my friends and family so much.

A fairly relaxing day was had here, a little frustration with a spreadsheet I wanted but it is mostly done now.  Woohoo!  I'm looking forward to creating tonight and some light housecleaning.

My physical therapy is going really well, yesterday we amped it up a bit.  Love it!  Soon, we will be hitting the driving range or the Putt Putt course.  I am so looking forward to that.

Enjoy your weekend & I will be back Monday, God willing.

Bon Voyage

Shall we fix a picnic basket & set sail for the afternoon?  I'm in if you're in!  It sounds wonderful, doesn't it?

Yesterday was a rainy day here, but I often enjoy those.  I worked on a couple of projects, today I have spent cleaning up my work space trying to find space to put things - and no I didn't.

Saturday, before church, I delivered some handmade gifts to my friend Jayna.  I left them on her desk so that she would get them Monday morning. I am really enjoying sharing with my friends!

Today's card was another fun card made using the Work of Art stamp set.  I hope you like it.
