Mojo Monday 167 Still Has Me!

That's right ladies The Mojo Monday bug bite still hasn't gone away & due to the side effects of the bite, I just HAD to create another card. So here is another card for the Mojo Monday 167, this time it's a square...

Now, that I have that one out of my head. Maybe I can get some rest, instead of dreaming about this card. lol I also was thinking, I might just do this card in other sizes like the Baby Shower cards I did for Ave. Just to see how they turn out! Plus, since I'm really digging this card I think I just may use it as our Christmas card for the family this year. So, I need to make the other sizes to figure out what style I want for us to use! Plus, I can also enter again in the Triple Play, Project Parade again. Of course I'll post them for you as soon as I have them done for you! Watch for added photos to this post, coming soon!!!

Ave's Baby Shower Cards

Okay, Okay, everyone I know, I promised to post these cards on Monday. But, if I haven't fallen asleep yet it still counts as Monday right? RIGHT?! lol

So, on Sunday time got away from me & those darn Baby Shower cards never saw the day of light. It takes time finding everything that I put away for Thanksgiving  so that the table would be cleared. After pulling everything & messing it all up the way it belongs. I was able to create, & here they are...

Tada! Hope y'all liked them! I thought they were really cute. Ave hasn't seen them yet (she's in bed already) or rather she only saw the first one I posted, she loved that one. Let's hope she feels the same way about the others. That way we can get these darn cards out of the the way! So, the 1st one is the invitation to the Baby Shower, the 2nd one is the Thank You card (as you may well have guessed, since I stamped Thank you on it *wink), & lastly the 3rd one is for the Birth Announcement. Let's see what she says & because I had to make three coordinating cards. Guess what?!!!! Now I'm also able to participate in the Triple Play for the Verve Project Parade at Verve Stamps!

Well it was Monday & I didn't do the Mojo Monday but, no worries. I'll be right on that tomorrow after the house cleaning. Of course I'll be posting it for you to see, I've already seen the sketch it's a good one can't wait to get right on that. See ya tomorrow!!! Now it's off to bed with me!

Let The Count Down Begin!

Good Morrow My Stampin' Friend!!!

It is another wonderful day here in Houston. The sun is bright & the weather is perfect! I just absolutely LOVE these types of days! So, for the last few days I have been recovering from the cooking extravaganza that was Thanksgiving.

Now, that I am well rested & almost everything is back in it's place. I am now going to sit down & create! Create what? You ask, well as I have mentioned before my daughter is pregnant & she is hounding me to get all her invites done. I've already made her Baby Shower invite, now she wants me to make the Thank You cards & Birth Announcements. So, alas that is my task for today finish designing those cards for her. So, that we can then finalize the menu & all the other decor pieces that I will be needing to design for her Baby Shower Theme. But, for today! I'm focusing on her cards only. So, hopefully tomorrow I'll have those cards ready to for you to see.

For now enjoy these Christmas ones...

Happy 2 Days After Thanksgiving!

Thank goodness that in my last post I had the good sense to tell y'all that I might or might not post something for y'all on Thanksgiving day. As you may well have guessed time got away from me & I had started a whole day early just so that I would be able to do everything I wanted & no dice. It seemed that every time I thought I was finished BAM!!! There was something else for me to do or rather that I forgot to do. Needless to say I never got that Family banner done for y'all to see!!!

Never the less I do have so pics of Christmas cards for ya! Here they are...

Hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving with there families. I know I did! I love to be surrounded by my friends and family!!!

Happy Day before Thanksgiving EVERYONE!!!! Are ya ready for the hog down day?!!! I'm in the process of getting ready right now. Can't wait for all my friends & family to get here & for us to be all together as a united family. Isn't that what it's all about? FAMILY!!! What are you Thankful for?... I am Thankful for everyone in & around my life that help make me be the person that I am. But, most & fore most I am Thankful for my FAMILY!!! My kids, grandson Memphis (apple of my eye), my daddy, brothers, & My Pauly!!! Who with out I would be nothing.

Now, on another note as I mention yesterday I participated in the Monday Mojo. But, like I also said we don't necessarily have to do it on that Monday or week! So, here is what I made Monday from last weeks Mojo. I posted this weeks Mojo yesterday. Here is the sketch...

Aren't they cute?!! I totally LOVE this layout, I think I'm going to use it often until another one comes along that I love just as much. lol I think I'm going to make a Valentine's & Baby Shower card in this layout & of course I will post them for you! Just not today!

I will try & post something for you tomorrow on Thanksgiving Day but, I'm not making any promises! Some time in my schedule today I am planning on making a Thanksgiving Banner for the fireplace mantel & that is what I'm planning on posting for tomorrow.

Hope Everyone has the BEST Thanksgiving EVER,
