Sweet December

December is here and with it is the close of 2009. This year has flown by, I can not wait and hope for a better New Year. This year is one that I will gladly put behind me. I am already thinking about what resolutions that I can make. LOL!

Please tell me your plans for the New Year.

December is starting off with a bang! Here is the template that Melinda created, now this is the woman that always whines when there are circles. I believe that she is paying us back.







I used the circle as my opening, I really enjoyed trying to figure out what to do with this sketch. Melinda had me stumped for most of the evening.
This is the Ordinary Greeting set and the Swirly gigs.

Ami's sketch is great and very versatile. I flipped it on it's side to create a Thanksgiving card. Fall is my favorite, and I know I say it all the time. So, I wanted my card to represent all the things that I love about the season. From the decorations, to the leaves, and finally turkey.
Can you believe next week is Thanksgiving? Oh, my where did the time go? Well, I hope each and everyone of you have a wonderful Thanksgiving filled with joy, family and great food.

Celebrate!

I saw a card in a advertisiment last year and I finally got around to copying the sketch. I loved the circle, which I usually struggle with, so I jumped on this one. LOL!
So I got to work using the bazzill greens, the designer collection A little whimsy, linear sentiments for the background, little cupcake set. Then on the inside it says" I just read a report that said birthdays are good for you." and that is from the great greetings set. I also used my scor-pal along with my scor bug.


Let me know what you think.

Holiday Time

Can you believe it? The holidays are almost here! I just got used to writing 2009. Now, I am going to have to start all over again.

This may have been the hardest year yet, aside for losing my parents. I think we have struggled more in everything. I mean is it just me or did a switch get turned that said everything this year had to be difficult??


I love the fall, so as it starts to pass it makes me reflect on the year. I am thankful that my family is healthy, happy, and have enough. My wish for the coming year is that I am able to help my friends and family more. I just feel like I have really been lacking this year. Now don't get me wrong I am always busy with work, kids, school, home and volunteering. I just see many families struggling and that is when I wish I could do more.


Well, this card was inspired by my friend Melinda who is always helping me. Mindy, I wish I could wrap you in a hug everyday. You are a Rock Star! She is a helping hand when you do not even realize that you need one. She is an angel, and she means the world to me.

Angie's sketch is perfect, it really has a lot of possibilities. I came up with a holiday card using the Artsy Owl and tag tidbit sets. Can you tell I am trying to work ahead? LOL!

This week's sketch comes to us from Melinda. I think she did a great job of confusing me. Let me know if you are too? LOL! I was like what??? Then I thought how?? And here is what I came up with, not super creative. Hope you like it anyway. I am sure when you go peak at Melinda's you will be happy, she always rocks the sketches.










This card is made using the fancy curls and everyday events stamp sets.
