give thanks!

give thanks!  

Well today was very restful.  
Hanging out with family and watching movies.  
We look forward to sequestering ourselves 
home as much as possible!
Which means a lot of cooking for me.
The trade off is worth it!

I hope your weekend is the absolute best!

CASology CUE Card #72: SHOP!

CASology CUE Card #72: SHOP! 

Happy Holidays!!

Well the season is definitely upon us now.
And this week's CUE is SHOP!

This weekend I spent some time re organizing and readying all my 
Christmas Cards to address and mail out.
My goal is to mail them Thanksgiving Day.

My tradition is to celebrate the actual dinner on Saturday.
This was because way back when, I would see both sides of the family scooting from house to house.
Then it was because one of my brothers always worked the day after, 
and the travel to come to the Eastside would be too short so he would come Friday nite and spend the weekend.
Now it is just the tradition.  

We have a totally Great Sponsor this week!!
Sponsor:  Sweet Stamp Shop

As for the shopping, we keep it simple around here. A few gifts that are really wanted, and needed.
Not a massive display.  
So shopping is a minimal thing really.

(You will see my digital card design this upcoming Saturday on Unscripted Sketches, so tune back in SATURDAY if you want to see our family card this year!!)

---also, don't forget to see my previous post where I show a Card Parade of my recent card club cards, and this year's Festive Friday Cards!!!

Yay!!!
Now my card for the Cue: Shop
Show us your take!!!

Supplies:
Hero Arts Sentiment Happy Holidays
Hero Arts C2941 Three Presents
Memento Tuxedo Black Ink
DP: Carta Bella "Hello Again" by Kaitlin Sheaffer
Copics: R37 Carmine, RV42 Salmon Pink, YG07 Acid Green


Sponsor:  Sweet Stamp Shop

Final Festive Friday!: PARADE of CARDS I Promised!!!

Final Festive Friday!

My Final Festive Friday for this year!
I made this snowy city scene tag late last night (I am so late in posting so now it is the other night....)
for my card club, and knew it was perfect for the final challenge.
The final challenge is pick your favorite!

My favorite was SNOW.

Well I have a Parade of Cards for you, First of all I have all of the cards 
that we made at our recent Card Club -And my Festive Friday Cards too!

My husband's friend's from High School are Rob and James McDaniel.
All three came from Missouri to settle in the Eastside (East of Seattle in Washington State)
Their wives are card makers too!  
Wow, what a surprise to find this!!!
Of course we quickly came to form a card club and meet at least 
every 5-6 weeks for the last 3 years now.

I post this to snow, and list ALL of the Card Club Cards for this Month -
Followed by the Festive Friday Cards I have made all year!!!

MY CARD CLUB CARDS:!!







Loved this card so much from the recent CASology Triangle, that 
I had hoped they would love it too!
Ok, it was a hit I think...I LOVE IT!!


And Now: 
Presenting the Classic Card Designer: Liz McDaniel!



And now on to Kerry McDaniel a Fun and Whimsical Card Designer:
(I ADORE that she mails out 33+ cards for EVERY single occasion, and I thank my lucky stars I am on the list as a receiver!!!)







And now Linda Isenson!!  She can pull of fun and Elegant both so wonderfully!!




And now we have Alexandria!  Alexandria is a hard working
student that is pretty busy and joins us when she can.  She can also do fun and fresh!


I apologize this is so blurryyyyyy.... Did not want to cooperate. I will try again.



And now the FESTIVE FRIDAY PARADE!!
