Getting Ready!!

What a great weekend.  I have gotten so much done.  I have one Christmas gift finished and another one,  well, don't know if it's a gift or a first draft.  I am going to look at it again tomorrow and decide.  I would post pictures, but they are Christmas gifts silly!! 

We went to Pizza Ranch and celebrated the 5 November birthday's in our family.  Wow!  No wonder I get a bit wired this month.  For my mom's birthday, we go to the craft bazaars the first weekend of the month.  We have been doing that for years.  I love it, but I do find myself spending less and less every year.  I don't know if it's because I am doing so much of my own crafting, or because I want to get stuff out of my house, not in to it!! ha ha

I did become aware of the fact that I haven't posted any pictures of the clear Christmas cards we made for National Card Making day on October 1st.  So, without further adue .... our cards:

It was interesting to work with the added dimension of layering inside and outside the cards.  I think the one with the deer is my favorite. 
Sorry about the glare. 

We made 4 circle cards and 4 rectangular cards.  This was a great class. 

And now, I am off to finish up the Wonderland cards we will be making in club this month.  The page is adorable - I am sure I am going to LOVE the cards.

See you soon. c

November Already!!

I can't believe that we are starting November already!  I haven't finished the things I wanted to finish in June!  I am sitting down and working on my holiday time lines and trying to make sure that my time and commitments don't overwhelm me and ruin the holiday spirit for me.  The way I function best is to know what is coming and plan for it, so I begin now.  I already realized that I need to get my holiday baking done early, and I need to get the deep house cleaning done over the next few weeks or my crabby alternate personality is going to come creeping out.  Not good. 

I am excited to share with you the November Stamp of the Month from Close to My Heart.  This is an awesome set and works right in with all the grunge and vintage things that are going on in the industry right now.  And even one step better, our Cricut Cartridge ART PHILOSOPHY will cut out the little tags.  Check it out : Cherish the Day
Isn't it AWESOME?  I love this set and can't wait to add it to my projects.

The other November surprise, An early gift from Close to my Heart.  If you purchase $25 in Stamp sets in the month of November, you will receive a D sized holiday stamp set for only $5.00!  That is a huge savings!  And this set will make beautiful Holiday cards.  It also works with the ART PHILOSOPHY cartridge.  How cool is that?! 
If you would like to get this set for only $5.00, just contact me and we can make it happen!  In the mean time, have a super week!  c
