It's That Time of Year!

Are you feeling overwhelmed?  It's that time of year!  I am so behind this year!  Who am I kidding?  I am behind every year and doing things at the last minute on a regular basis!  Marianne and I were discussing this today.  Why don't we do these things in the summer or fall instead of waiting until last minute.  Although, I have to say, I have been working on my 6x6 calendars a little at a time for several months.  But I like to do 2-3 different calendars.  Today I spent most of the day working on the calendars that I give out this time of year.  I am going to have to send them to Office Depot to get printed though.  I tried printing them on my printer and got funny yellow lines going up and down - not pretty!  Don't have time to figure out the problem with my printer either. Tonight while watching TV, I worked on some little punch art reindeer tags that I am going to take to my Mahjong Christmas party on Friday.  When I finish those, I need to start on the gifts I want to make for the bridge party on Monday.  And then work on the projects for Stamp Club next week! We are going to do tags and gift cards and I will be using the Oh What Fun Tag Kit from the Holiday catalog.

Yesterday was the Duplicate Bridge Christmas party.  It was rather bittersweet.  We had a huge void with Sharon not being there this year.  She loved Christmas and we usually had our Christmas party in her home.  We all felt like she was with us this year in spirit; looking down on us.  We also welcomed two new members .... well, they aren't new since they have been subbing for us for the past year but now they will be regular members of the group.

Here's a picture of the group - minus Kathy since she was taking the picture.  We did a gift exchange and Kathy got a Selfie Stick but we couldn't figure out how to use it so we just took turns taking pictures.

At lunch, Diane had napkins on the table that were folded to look like a Christmas tree.  She gave us instructions on how to make them, but mine didn't turn out so good.  Here is the one Diane did:

Be aware that Stampin' Up will have more products on CLEARANCE for their Year End Sale starting December 10 - January 4, while supplies last.  They will be offering discounts up to 60 per cent on select products.  So make sure you check them out starting Thursday.

Also - more good news!!  Because of the popularity of the Woodland Embossing Folder, it will not be retiring!!  It will be available in the next annual catalog!!  I am so glad!

Shoebox Cards from Quarterly PLUS Weekly Deals!

Finally getting around to sharing the Shoebox Swap cards I made at the Wilmington Quarterly.  I finished a little over half the cards Friday night (stamping cards for Marianne also!).  So, when Margaret was visiting, while she worked on the club projects, I finished up these cards.  Hope they give you some inspiration.

This week's Weekly Deals are great!  I have already ordered the tree framelits today!

Sonny is getting along pretty good.   He pushed himself a little too much on Sunday with taking a shower that morning (his first since surgery) and then going to Big Al's to watch the football game.   He was wiped out and hurting a little bit when we got home.  Plus, he didn't like the fact that he had to pull the Steelers through without a beer!!  But we got a win .... as usual, in the last seconds!  Yesterday the Physical Therapist came and worked with him.  And today, we had to go looking for a new refrigerator so he has slept a lot this afternoon.  When it rains, it pours!  We had noticed since he came home from the hospital, that the cold packs he puts on his hip were not freezing totally.  (I change them out every 2-3 hours for him.)  I pulled out the bottom piece of the 'fridge and vacuumed the coils but it didn't seem to do much.  So, I have taken most of the food and put it in our outside freezer and put what I can in our small beer refrigerator in the garage.  I called Sears yesterday about getting a 'fridge from them, but their delivery date was going to be Nov. 19!  So we went to Lowe's Home Imp. today but the one we wanted was not in stock.   I ended up going online and found one at Home Depot and it will be delivered on Thursday!!  Yay!

I lost one of my best Lake Norman friends yesterday - the "good Sharon" as she always told me.  Sharon has been battling a blood disorder (similar to what Robin Roberts from GMA had) for about five years.  For the past year or so, she has been doing great.  But she started feeling bad in August shortly before they were supposed to go on a cruise.  They ended up canceling the cruise and she had several blood transfusions and platelets over the past couple of months.  I visited her in the hospital last Sunday and she was did not look good at all.  It scared me. Wednesday after Sonny's surgery, I went to see her again and she looked so much better.  But that evening, I stopped by her room as I was leaving and she was not in the room.  I was told that she was moved to Critical Care where she stayed for a couple of days.  She was taken to Hospice late Friday.  I went to see her Saturday morning, knowing I was saying my final good bye to her.  She told me she just couldn't fight any more but she wanted to make it through Sunday since that was their 40th wedding anniversary.  She died Monday at noon.  Luckily her children were able to get here in time.  Sharon was the first friend I made when I moved here nine years ago and I will miss her terribly.  We played bridge together every Monday.  We will have a big gap at the bridge table now.

Sponged Silent Night

I have been having fun using the Sleigh Ride Edgelits.  There is a bit of a learning curve with them as far as how to cut them out and place them, but when you figure that out, they look great on your card.  I totally CASE'd this card from one I saw on Pinterest and love the way it turned out!

I sponged the panels with Night of Navy, Mossy Meadow and Bermuda Bay.  Next I spritzed the pieces with water and let them dry.  I think next time I will use Alcohol so it will dry quicker.  I cut out the Trees Framelits and adhered them at the bottom; matted the piece on Mossy Meadow; wrapped a bit of silver cord around the panel and adhered a snowflake in the corner.  It was a really easy card to make and I love it!

Last night the Steelers played San Diego in California.  Neither Sonny nor I picked the Steelers to win in our football pool but we were very happy that they won in the last second!  I was afraid they were going to run out of time but they scored the winning touchdown with no seconds to spare!  We are going to Pittsburgh this weekend and would love to see them win again.  BUT, I do not think that is going to happen against Arizona and with our quarterback still injured.  Oh well, we will have a good time anyway and will be meeting Ashley there.  We have not seen her since last May when we met her in San Diego.

Gotta run - meeting my sister for breakfast this morning and then Stamp Club this afternoon.  Here are the Weekly Deals.

Sleigh Ride Edgelits

I have been having fun with the stamp sets, framelits, punches, DSP, etc. from the Holiday Mini Catalog.  There are so many great sets and bundles in this catalog.  But one item I do not want to ever be without is on page 43 - the Fine Tip Glue Pen.  OMG!!  It is fabulous!  I used it earlier on a swap I am making to run a fine line of glue and put glitter on a flower.  So much easier than anything else I have used.  I suggest you put that on your list of things you have to have from this catalog!!

Here are a couple of cards I have made using the Sleigh Ride Edgelits (pg 12).  They were on my list from the beginning and I love them.

For this card, I cut the Santa apart and adhered it under the Vellum that I embossed snowflakes in sliver.   The "jingle" sentiment is from Jingle All the Way which is bundled with the Sleigh Ride Edgelits.

On this card, I sponged the Tip Top Taupe with white ink to tone it down a bit.  I did the trees in Mint Macaron and the embossed sky (using a new embossing folder - Softly Falling, pg. 24) is Pool Party. I mounted the whole card onto Lost Lagoon.  I like the varying shades of blue and green.

These are the bundles available in the Holiday Mini:

Stamp Club for June

This is the third week of the month which means it's Stamp Club.  I had my first group over yesterday and the rest (that are in town!) will be coming tomorrow.  These are the cards we made:

This Blackberry Bliss beauty uses the flower from Garden in Bloom - a new two-step stamp.  I love the new Brick Wall embossing folder.  It is a bigger folder than the usual embossing folders.  I used the white gel pen to color in the "mortar" on the bricks.

This card was actually a CASE from my friend, Allison.  She did a card very similar to this one in our New Catalog Swap last month.  I wanted a chance to use the Layered Alphabet stamp set and this was perfect for it.  I gave the gals a choice of color - Cucumber Crush or Watermelon Wonder.  They both look great paired with Basic Black.

I love this little koala but haven't used it much.  I think I was trying to color him in and it just didn't work.  This little guy, I stamped with Early Espresso and didn't color anything except for the flower and added a few tiny dots around the flower and the sentiment.  I used the Score Board to score vertical lines on both sides of the bear and backed it with Marina Mist that I added lines to with the gel pen.  Since this was a square card (4 1/2"), we also used the Envelope Punch Board to make an envelope.

We also made the Slider Card I shared HERE.

I really enjoyed having a new member join us and a guest who I met for lunch last week.  Barbara is visiting her son in Mooresville and lives in Florida.  She is also a SU demonstrator.  I was glad she was able to come to club and have a creative day with us.  My new member is Gayle who just moved here from Florida too.  It's funny - she found me through either my blog or contacting SU directly.  As it turns out, she moved in to the same neighborhood as me.  And to make it even more coincidental, her back yard backs up to my front yard so she was able to just walk over yesterday.

Some good deals this week - I have my eye on the Sweetheart Punch and you can always find a use for White Ribbon - use it white or dye it to match.  Here are the Weekly Deals for this week:

Paper Craft Crew Card

I finally finished off my Feb. Stamp Club today.   I can do those 4 cards in my sleep!!  But I think everyone liked them and we had a fun time making them.

Our weather has really been funny.  Monday it was almost 70 degrees and today I don't think we got past 40.  Sure hoping spring is coming soon. 

I got my 10 Year pin in the mail last week from Stampin' Up.  It's hard to believe I've been a demonstrator for 10 years!  I have enjoyed every minute being creative with Stampin' Up products.

This is my card for Paper Craft Crew this week.  I got most of My Digital Studio files downloaded onto my new laptop and made this card:

Isn't this a pretty baby card?

More of the White Stuff!

Would you believe we woke up this morning to more snow!!  It was just snow this time and no ice mixed in so it did not bother the roads as much.  But Sonny's skeet shooting got canceled and I decided to stay home instead of meeting a group in Davidson for lunch.  Sonny and I escaped in the afternoon and drove into town to get a sandwich.  It hasn't gotten above freezing today but tomorrow's high is supposed to be in the mid 40s!!  Yay!  Maybe I'll be able to have my Stamp Club on Thursday after all.  When I looked at the long range forecast, looks like we'll be in the 60s next Wednesday!!

Sonny and I spent a couple of hours today going through old photo slides that we had.  Ashley bought us a converter for Christmas.  We did pictures from 1982 and 1983 today!  So you can see, we have a long way to go!  Plus in the years before that, we had a movie camera and have those reels somewhere.  I'd like to find them and get them converted also.

New Items Added to Sale-a-Bration.  Starting March 1 and running through March 31, there are four new items you can earn during Sale-a-Bration – and they are all GREAT ones.  Earn one of these with each $50 order – OR add them to a Starter Kit when you join my team .

Adventure Bound Quick and Easy!

If you have seen the paper stack in the Occasions Catalog called Adventure Bound (pg 40) and wondered (like my sister did) what in the world would you do with it, let me just share a few cards I made with it last weekend.  It makes great masculine cards.

I used the "hello" thinlet and cut one from Soft Suede and one from Very Vanilla, added a little Tombow glue to the back and shadowed them.  "Just Sayin'" is from the great set, Crazy About You.

How about a nautical look?  I used the Circles Dies to cut my "porthole" and stamped the boat image with Staz-On Black ink onto Vellum paper.
What about a sweater on a cold day?  The buttons are made using the Simply Pressed Clay and Buttons and Blossoms molds (pg 208).  I used my Blendabilities to color the buttons.  The sentiment is from Sheltering Tree.

This may be my favorite!  I stamped the sun in Crushed Curry in the corner with the stamp from Kinda Eclectic.  I stamped the sentiment (Feel Goods) in Gold and embossed with Gold Powder.

Super simple on this one.  You Rock (from Crazy for You) was stamped on Vellum and cut out with the Word Bubbles Thinlets and backed with Gray card stock.

These cards are so quick and easy to make!!

Well. we got the "big" storm last night ... ha ha!!  A mixture of snow and sleet started falling about 3:30 - as Mom and I were leaving the doctor's office.  I had hoped to make a few stops after taking her home but decided I'd best get on over the bridge and home before the streets got slick.  We had a mix off and on until I went to bed around midnight.  I was hoping to see a winter wonderland when I woke up today but this is all I saw!

Nothing to get excited about!  It is pretty slick - at least that was what Sonny told me when he walked up the driveway to get the newspaper this morning.  I canceled my Tuesday Stamp Club and Sonny's Tuesday skeet shooting was canceled.  So now we'll see what else comes our way.  This is our forecast for now:

TODAY - Mostly cloudy. Highs in the mid 30s. Northwest winds around 5 mph.
TONIGHT - Mostly cloudy. Cold with lows around 19. Northwest winds around 5 mph.
WEDNESDAY - Partly sunny. A chance of snow showers in the afternoon. Snow accumulation around an inch possible. Highs in the lower 30s. South winds around 5 mph - increasing to west 10 to 15 mph with gusts up to 25 mph in the afternoon. Chance of snow 50 percent.
WEDNESDAY NIGHT - Partly cloudy. Colder with lows around 4 above. Northwest winds 10 to 15 mph. Wind chill values as low as 7 below after midnight.
THURSDAY - Sunny. Cold with highs around 19. Northwest winds 5 to 10 mph. Wind chill values as low as 9 below in the morning.
THURSDAY NIGHT - Mostly clear. Cold with lows around zero. Wind chill values as low as 10 below.
FRIDAY - Mostly sunny. Cold with highs in the mid 20s.
FRIDAY NIGHT - Mostly cloudy with a 40 percent chance of snow. Cold with lows around 15.
SATURDAY AND SATURDAY NIGHT - Rain or snow likely. Moderate snow accumulation possible. Highs in the mid 30s. Lows in the mid 20s. Chance of precipitation 60 percent.
SUNDAY - Rain or snow likely in the morning - then rain likely in the afternoon. Little or no additional snow accumulation. Highs in the upper 40s. Chance of precipitation 60 percent.
SUNDAY NIGHT - Mostly cloudy. A chance of rain in the evening - then a chance of snow or rain after midnight. Lows in the upper 20s. Chance of precipitation 50 percent.
MONDAY - Partly sunny. A chance of rain or snow in the morning - then a chance of rain in the afternoon. Highs in the upper 30s. Chance of precipitation 30 percent.

Mini Treat Bags

I really love these Mini Treat Bags and they are so easy to make and decorate.  I think they would be perfect for a little Valentine goodie!

This one I made at Allison's Stamp-a-ganza last month.  It uses the DSP from Sale-a-Bration.

This one is one that I made to give to my Club gals last month with a few candies in it.  I used the DSP Back to Black in the Annual Catalog.

I am feeling better but decided to go to the doctor just to make sure it wasn't anything serious.  I hate hearing the rumbling in my chest.  He listened and said it was just a touch of bronchitis but mostly this bug that is going around.  He said it was the worst he has seen in ten years!  He felt like I was on the road to recovery and didn't need an antibiotic unless I get to feeling worse in the few days.  Today was the first day that I didn't have to pop a couple of Alieve to get through the day.  By evening, I'm starting to fade but not like I was over the weekend.

Clearance and Weekly Deals Plus Christmas Trivia!

It's Tuesday and that means new Weekly Deals from Stampin' Up!  The Deals include one of my favorites - the Chalk Talk Framelits Die set.  Also, be sure to check out the YEAR END CLEARANCE items at my online store.  Items are only available while supplies last.

Here are some random Christmas facts that I got from someone!  Enjoy!

The Popular Poinsettia
Holiday Past
Poinsettias were first introduced into this country in 1828 by the U.S. ambassador to Mexico, Joel Poinsett.
Holiday Present
Poinsettias are now grown in all 50 states and represent over 85 percent of potted plant sales during the holidays. Over $220 million worth of poinsettias are sold during holiday season!
Kisses in Color
Holiday Past
Hershey's started wrapping their Kisses in red, green, and silver foil for the first time in 1962. The success of the holiday-wrapped Kisses led Hershey's to dress up their little chocolates for the Easter, Valentine's Day, and Fall Harvest seasons.
Holiday Present
Hershey's now wraps up to 1,300 Hershey's Kisses a minute. That gives them the capacity to make approximately 33 million Hershey's Kisses a day, or more than 12 billion a year!
A Tree of Lights
Holiday Past
In 1949, the tree at Rockefeller Center was strung with 7,500 bulbs.
Holiday Present
Now more than 25,000 bulbs are strung on the tree - that's more than 5 miles of lights!
Artificial Trees
Holiday Past
Artificial Christmas trees were on the market by 1900. They were available by mail from Sears, Roebuck and Company, and cost 50 cents for 33 limbs, or a dollar for 55 limbs.
Holiday Present
Most artificial trees are now manufactured in Korea, Taiwan, or Hong Kong and contain non-biodegradable plastics and metals. They usually range in price from $200 to $2,000.
Holiday Mail
Holiday Past
The first Christmas card, created by a London businessman, was printed in England in 1843. Three years later, the first commercial Christmas cards were available to the public. One thousand cards in all were produced and they were an instant success.
Holiday Present
The holiday season is now the busiest time of the year for the US Postal Service. Last year, over 20 billion cards, letters, and packages were sent, causing the USPS to hire nearly 40,000 temporary workers and put thousands of additional trucks, trains, and planes in service.

New Photopolymer Christmas Stamp

We had a great trip but as always, it's good to be back home and sleep in my own bed!  We left home Wednesday morning and drove to Ft. Belvoir to pick up Ashley for our drive to Pittsburgh on Thursday.  Thursday started out a little rough - Ashley was supposed to meet up with her classmates to go to the State Department.  She thought they were meeting at 6:30 but turns out, they were meeting at 5:30 a.m.!  Sonny got up and took her to the Metro and as it turns out, she arrived before anyone else!  After she finished up for the day, we hit the road for Pittsburgh arriving there about 6:30 - just in time to find a parking spot downtown and a short walk to the Consol Energy Center to watch the Penguins for the first hockey have of the season.  It was a great one - high scoring.  The final score was 6-4 with the Pens winning.
I didn't get the message that we were supposed to be looking to our right!

Final score - 6-4 PENS!

This was a cool mosaic of Mario Lemieux (former player and now owner of Penguins) of a collections of photographs that have been pieced together.

The Pittsburgh PENGUINS!

No Neck Sharon!!

Stampin' Up has released a beautiful Christmas stamp - as seen below.  Gentle Peace Photopolymer stamp was designed to work with the Blendabilties to create the stained glass look.  Just when I thought I didn't need any more Christmas stamps!  This image is just gorgeous!

Here is a LINK to the flier with details.

Here are the Tuesday specials for this week.  They will be available through next Monday.
