Weekend Ramblings Etc...

It's been months since i last posted..not suprising...I just can't get myself to sit down and post..it's not really a lack of something to post..just taking the time to do so...anyway..maybe I will make that goal yet again this year...

I noticed the last time it was October and we were having some great weather..well..I wish I could have some of that back..it's been in the 30's all day..and with the windchill it's even colder..brrr...I am sooo ready  for warmer days and not what we are going to have this week..which from the forecast it looks like this could be the warmer of the days..snow is in the forecast...not sure how much..hopefully if any not very much at all and not enough to stick to the roads.

I have cards to share...I know Christmas is past but since I didn't get on here intime to post my Christmas cards I will do so..and here they are...




I made them usingmy Joys of the Season Cricut Cartridge..with glitter paper for the ornements..Simple cards..but I made around 30 of them so it took some time..and lots of glue on my hands...

I also am in a Secret Sister Swap over at http://simplyscrapping.ning.com/ and am playing hostess while our dear Christy is taking some time off to enjoy her new lil baby boy..anyway..if you are looking to be in a great Secret Sister swap that is the place to be...we do 3 month rounds and just started a round in Janaury..so if you haven't joined already then check it out and let me know and I can add your name to the waiting list...but what I wanted to share were a couple of things I made for my last SS..just a couple of things that I had been wanting to try out and decided this was the perfect time..I can also post these since she has already received her last package from me...

I made covered a lil noteboo for her and added her intial..then I took a clear desk top photo holder and did the same thing with and made it a sticky note holder..and then I altered a bullnose paper clip as a recipe holder..instead of putting an actual food  recipe card in it I added a recipe for life quote I found on the internet..




Still on http://simplyscrapping.ning.com/ I am doing one of their weekly challenges. This one is for CAS which stand for Clean and Simple..something sometimes I have an hard time with.. I always want to add extras to my cards...Anyway, along with making it CAS we also had to make it a thank you card..so here is my card for that...followed by one I made before it because I forgot that it had to be a thank you card..I was more worried about it being CAS...taught me to read and remember all the rules...I used a butterfly and heart punch for the diecuts..a white pen for the fuax stitching and the sentiment is in my own handwriting...couldn't have been easier..I tell you it took my longer to get a descent photo than it did to make the cards...I will be doing this again with differeant color of cardstock..




I think that is all I have to share today but I do want to share a link with you..Over at Sweet Magnolia Rose she is giving away a Cricut Expession with 3 cartridges..plus if you follow some other instructions she's added the chance to win a Cricut Cake Machine...

Hope everyone had a great weekend and the week ahead even better...

Hugs!
