Happy Thanksgiving

This card is a complete design by Sandy Osborn...I just love her work and purchase as much of it as I can afford. I made up two of these...the other one says 'Thank You" on the front. I left the inside blank so they can write what they want to. I cut the leaves out separately and attached them with pop dots and the added glitter. I really like this card the best of all of them..Now I can't wait to have another free weekend to make some more.

Baby Girl Card

Did a super lousy job of photographing this card but I already have it wrapped up when I sat down to check the images on the card.

Thank You Card

These were such fun to make...made me realize how much I miss crafting and designing. I didn't design any of these...I have subscribed to a Card magazine for a couple years now and I just searched till I found some that I thought I could make up and had the supplies for. Makes me really wish I had spent more time learning how to use my Expression. I got things done with it but knowledge would have been a good assistant...LOL. The only thing I really used the computer for was to make my papers and to print out the sentiments. I ended up with 5 cards, so that's not bad for one days work...really I made up 6 but sending one to Tori for her new baby that was born last week. I probably could have got another one done but knew it would take me a couple hours to clean the house back up. I'm a neat freak until it comes to crafting and then I have it spread in every room. I'd give anything to have one big room with all my stuff in it. Right now, my computer and printer are in the family room (lap top is in the living room), the Expression, cutting board, binder and laminator are in the laundry room and most of my supplies are in the hall closet.
I've got a couple more to post and then need to get some supper started and packing done.

Baby Boy Card

This took me over 5 hours to make...LOL....lots of trial and error...don't look too close! My macro lens really shows the glue that I messed up on...the inside is just white with the words:
On the birth of your baby boy. I'm going to make a girl one in the morning. I was planning on making about a half dozen to add to the greeting card house that I bought for the women's gift at mom's but doubt if I get more than 2 more made. We leave early Friday morning and I still have to box it and wrap it, plus pack for the trip. I should have got off my dead butt on Mon. and Tues. but just didn't have the energy to get up.

Christmas 2009

Another of my Santa's . I have quite a collection but I don't put all them out anymore. Some of them were bought for me and not exactly ones I would have picked out. I like the old world looking ones or wood carved. The tree is by Katie Pertiet and the bow is by Claudi Designs. Did you know we now have 4 followers?

Old Santa's

These have been in my possession for as long as I can remember. I believe my mother bought them for me when I first got married. The grands love stacking them.

Icy Trees

I've had this collection of crystal trees for years and I have always wanted more but I can't find any. This year I bought a couple of mercury glass trees trying to make my collection grow. I should have bought more of them, by next year I probably won't be able to find them either.
Used one of Florabella's overlays to make it a little more icy looking.

Holiday Memories

Just might use this for my Christmas card next year....took it this afternoon when I was putting decorations away. I never did get a photo of the house all lit up. Just too tired to do it at night when I got home. One more Christmas...then I'm calling it quits! I'll work next Christmas and then retire the end of November of 2011. (I hope!)

Christmas Eve Mosaic

A few shots of our Christmas Eve this year.
Jessi and her cousins got these adorable hats and scarves from Aunt Pam and Uncle Randy and of course they had to model them.
I think Jason needed some new socks. I had to darn the ones he had on with the clone brush.
Zach was so excited this year he could hardly stand still, but that really isn't anything different he never stands still.
Don't you just love the shot of the trash that was left behind.

Winter Begins 2009

It's no wonder I get nothing done on my days off. This was going to be a quick post and wanted to frame and shadow it....could I find my damn instructions for doing that? No! @(*$&*$@
I have them buried somewhere on one of these two computers and can't locate it anywhere. Course, it would help if I could just remember something for a change. it is...un-adored!

Silent Victors

Just another image I've been working up for a B/W...still not good enough to send in. I can't seem to get them sharp enough and I'm using my tripod but according to Peter, I focus to close but he doesn't explain how to change that. I really like these foggy shots....especially in B/W. We got tons of snow...its been a real challenge to walk out the door each morning. I'm so far behind now that I could leave the left over deliveries on my truck and have a full day of work and not load a single new delivery. The boss is saying no help till next week...ugh!

No playing around with this one. Just did a crop and resize.
Snowflakes from DDE.

First Snowfall - 2

This is the first snowfall for this winter. Didn't amount to much which makes me happy.
I have been wanting to use some of Florabbella's textures and overlays and thought this would be as good a time as any to play around some.
