Merry Christmas!

It's Christmas morning ... so ... Merry Christmas to everyone out there in blogland!

Today will be quiet at our house. We had our get together with my family last night. I enjoyed spending a few hours with my family and was missing them as soon as we got back home. My granddaughter had a blast playing with my husband; I think she wore him out with all her energy! lol She is growing up so fast.

We will spend some time today with my husband's parents. She doesn't get on the computer, so I can tell everyone that he got her two beautiful robellini's. One is a tall quad that will be absolutely gorgeous in the front yard and the other is a smaller triple. His father does get on the computer so I can't say what he got for his Dad. ;-) I had the privilege of making a pretty box to put the gift in.

Finally! A New Card to Post ...

I hope you can see the picture OK. I'm using my laptop and don't have photo editting software on it.

Anyway! This is a card I made today using the new Vintage Vogue set from Stampin' Up! that will be available to the public on Jan 5, 2010. All the stamps used on this card are from that set. I really like the "vintage-ness" of this set - it will make some awesome shabby chic cards!

  • Stampset: Stampin' Up! Vintage Vogue
  • Cardstock: SU! Bashful Blue, Very Vanilla, Creamy Caramel
  • Ink: SU! Bashful Blue, Close to Cocoa
  • Accessories: SU! embossing folder, pop dots

Excuses, blah blah bah!

I can't believe it has been nearly a month since I last posted! I have been creating cards, I promise!

I've been working on Christmas cards and gift projects. Throw in Thanksgiving and a holiday party here and there as well as getting "stuff" together for a yard sale ... and you have the makings of a busy woman!

My desktop computer is acting up so I have been using my laptop for the past week or so. Of course, all my card pics are on my desktop. Of course. So, I'll post some pictures as soon as I can get back to using my desktop PC.
