Winter Wonderland

Hi all!
Well, I am SO excited to say that I have almost all of my Christmas shopping done!! (and wrapped and under the tree!) That doesn't usually happen in this family! I know that the next four weeks are going to be very hectic at work--as we are short handed with the other clerk still off--so I have done most shopping on-line this year!

It is Monday and we all know that means it is time for a new Squigglefly Challenge--this week the challenge is: Winter Wonderland. I have used one of  the newer images, found over at Squigglefly: Trimming the Tree -by Rachel Goble. I added some neat ribbon I purchased recently, and here is my card....

Thanks for stopping by! It always makes my day....sorry I haven't had the time to get around much and say HI---I hope to soon!!

What? The weekend is over already?

Well, this weekend (as all others) just flew by! I did manage to get 30 some cards made....but not a pic of a one of them---can you believe that? I made lots of cards for mail carriers....using the cute mailbox that is found on the Jolly Holidays Cricut cart, very cute!! Emily stayed at a friends house on Friday night then I picked her up at Roller Skating after I got out of work on Sat.
Today we went to the local Library and they had games and crafts, and they showed the new Winnie The Pooh movie--Emily won the Movie while we were there, how cool is that?!! Now she is at a Thanksgiving dinner and craft get together with the Girl Scouts. The program is called Little Sisters, and has been very cool/and fun  for Emily to be involved with!
Is everyone ready for Thanksgiving? In case I don't get back before then...Hope you all enjoy the day with your families!

                                                       HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!

Please Pray for my Best Friends Husband

My best friend and her family just found out that her husband Chris (age 41) has lung cancer. He is in the ICU at a hospital in Cary N.C and on a waiting list to be transferred to Duke. They are in shock --as he has never been a smoker, or exposed to any danger that they know of. Please keep them on your Prayer list--it would be much appreciated. Thank You!

New Squigglefly Challenge

Time for another Squigglefly Challenge--this week the challenge is to make a Birthday card, it is Marlene's week to pick the Challenge and since it is her birthday this month --she picks Birthday Card! I have used one of the Squigglefly images--this one is called "Bored Beatrice"  and is by none other than Marlene! Beatrice comes with a sentiment too, but I used my own for this card.
As you all probably know the Post Office was closed on Friday for Veterans day--so I went with a couple of gals to a craft crop-there were lots of vendors there and I purchased lots of new papers and crafty items-fun to see all the goodies available out there!!
Well, hope you all have a great week!
