My DD made it home!

My DD got in at 6:30 this morning! It is so good to see her! It feels like she had been gone for years instead of a couple of months! She looks really good and has survived her first experience of being away from home. She does have to go back to DC for about a month, but the longest stretch is over. When she is done in DC, she has to go to college, about six hours away, but at least she will be closer to home.

Okay, enough about my DD for now. Here is another card I have to share with anyone that looks at my blog...LOL! It is another of the set I am making for my mom for Christmas. Red is one of her favorite colors so I hope she likes these.

This is my favorite so far. I am trying to make them so that she can use them for any occasion. This one I didn't put any greeting on the front or inside. She can use it to write a quick note to someone or she can use it as a birthday card, etc.

Well that's it for tonight. I have a lot of cooking to do tomorrow in order to get ready for Thanksgiving day. If I don't get on here again before Thanksgiving day, have a wonderful Thanksgiving and enjoy your time with your family. We have lost two family members this year that will be greatly missed.

Have a great night!

I want to make a set of cards to give to my mom for Christmas. I actually got one done today! I'm thinking 12 for a set is a good number! Now let's see if I can get that many finished in time to mail in time for Christmas!

Here is the first one I am sharing. I think I like it. I will have to look at it for a couple of days before I decide if this is the finished product!

I have two birthday cards I need to get made before Thursday...nothing like putting things off until the last minute!

My DD will be home for Thanksgiving early Tuesday morning! I can't wait to see her! I knew I would miss her, I didn't realize how much until she was gone! She had her 21st birthday while in DC so I will have some of her favorite frosted sugar cookies waiting for her when she gets here and I will make her absolute favorite, cherry cheesecake, so we can all celebrate on Thanksgiving.

I'm not getting anything done sitting here at the!

Have a great night!

Finally, something to add!

I have finally found my crafting mojo! I lost it earlier this year, and just couldn't bring myself to go into my "crap" room and even try to find it! I don't know if it was losing my dad in May, or my little brother taking his life in August, the move, etc. I should have been really excited because I finally got my scrapping room, but...anyways...

Here is a card I made for my in-laws anniversary...late...but I got it done! I totally messed up the date of their anniversary! I thought it was in November, BUT it was in October! I feel soooo bad that I made that mistake! My mom-in-law loves my cards so hopefully this will make forgetting a little better!

I stamped the word "Always" by Autumn Leaves and colored it with copic markers. I then cut it out and used dimensionals to pop it up. After I had my card all put together I used glossy accents to cover the whole word. I think it turned out okay, especially for not creating for quite some time!

Here's my card:

Have a great day!

So sorry I haven't been around for so long. I have had some health problems the last couple of months that I have had to deal with, so I just haven't had much energy.

I have been spending a little more time in my "crap" room the last week and have gotten a few cards finished. I will take some pictures and get them posted in the next day or so. I have to take my son to the doctor tomorrow. He got bit by a cat last Tuesday night and ended up having surgery on Wednesday. I have been around cats all of my life and never knew such a thing could happen! He is doing well, thank God! He goes for a check-up tomorrow and hopefully everything will be okay!

Hopefully I have gotten my crafting mojo back and will start posting more often!

Have a great night!
