How long as it been????

It's been a long time. I still stamp but not has much as I used to so I haven't blogged that much. I also have become a facebook addict so that has also taken away from blogging. At any rate, I am going to try it again. Look for photo's of cards coming soon.

It's been a long time.....

And I keep hoping I will get back to blogging. I now have time to stamp and create - - just need the motivation. I am now retired and have the time so hopefully, I will get in the mood to stamp and create and blog!

Just wanted you to know I haven't fallen off the face of the earth.

Merry Christmas!

Wow, it's been a long time since I posted anything on my blog. I discovered facebook and have been spending a lot of time there and neglecting my blog. I am going to make a new years resolution to come back to posting on my blog. I have made a few cards in the past month so in the new year I will start posting more cards. I will try to blog weekly.

In the meantime, have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Here's looking ahead to a fabulous 2009!

Happy Friday....

I look forward to weekends! Always something to do now that Pat is off on weekends. I am posting a card I made for my monthly swap. I really had a creative block this month. I made this card very slowly, first coming up with the fold (it's a tri-fold which doesn't photograph very well), then I decided on the paper (two different designs to make the 10 cards - I only had one piece left of each), then after looking at it for several days I added the snowflakes. So here I am with a card and no stamping...I added the sentiment after looking at it another few days. There is also a nice sentiment on the inside (didn't photograph the inside). For a simple card, it took a while to make. I hope the swappers like the card. They are a pretty creative group!

Weekend plans include having dinner with high school friends of Pat's, Kerry's classes and rehearsals and Girl Scouts! We will be busy. I am now on facebook....if you are a friend, add me!

Have a great weekend everyone!

Trick or Treat

Happy Halloween everyone. I know you haven't seen Penny recently on the blog so I thought I would share a photo of Penny in her Halloween Costume. Can you guess what she is???

Penny is recuperating from her spay this week. It's been difficult to get to relax. She wants to play but the vet said she should take it easy for a week. She won't be going trick or treating but she wanted to at least dress up for her first Halloween.

It's been a relatively quiet week based on how busy I have been lately. I am working the polls next week. It's going to be a long day. I have to be there at 5:30 a.m., which means I will have to get up around 4:15 a.m. I haven't seen that hour of the day in a very long time. To top it off, I stay until the polls are closed. I am going to be one tired chick on Wednesday.

Don't forget to get out and VOTE!!!

Caramel Apple Kits

I love weekends! There is always something to look forward to. Now that Pat is finally off on weekends we not only get a lot done, we do things we haven't done in a long time....socialize. Meghan is home for the weekend. We had a wonderful dinner last night at home. Today we went out to breakfast. This afternoon we are having our family portrait taken at church . Tonight we are all going out to dinner on Meghan's last night (except for Kerry who has rehearsal).

Here is a little project that I make every Fall. It's a caramel apply kit. It contains about 9 caramels and a popsicle stick. There is a recipe card on front and a topper.

Here's a close-up of the topper. I was so happy to see the stamp - caramel apple kit - in the Spooky Treats II set from Papertrey Ink.

I made a few more cards for swaps that I will post soon.

I think it's been forever since I had blog candy. I will have to think about doing that next week. Check back!

Another busy week....

Another busy week after a busy weekend. Patrick and I celebrated our 27th anniversary with a fabulous dinner at a wonderful restaurant. I had a night out with friends (buffet dinner and comedy) that was a lot of fun. It was homecoming weekend for Kerry - she had a wonderful time and looked beautiful in her new dress. This week I bowl on Monday (as usual), Dog Park Meeting on Tuesday and on Wednesday a fun night at bookclub. I think I have an idea for a costume (our book club hostess is having a prize for best costume). Then, I have to get ready for a weekend visitor...Meghan is coming home...yeah! We are having a family portrait done at church on Saturday.

Here is a card I made for a swap.
