A Gift For Fran

I woke up around 3:30 a.m. and couldn't get back to sleep. Boy do I hate that. Especially when I have to go to work. Anyway I knew that I had an appointment with Fran (she's a nutritionist) today after work and that I wouldn't see her till after the new year. She loves handmade cards and so as I was trying to get back to sleep and couldn't, I laid there and put this card together in my head. I got out of bed and pulled out my Bella Toile stamp and combined it with the new Vintage Vogue "F" friend stamp (coming soon in the new mini) in Old Olive ink. Added some of the new awesome satin ribbon which will also be available January 5th in the Occasions Mini Catalog. I made four of them and put them in a clear plastic box with more ribbon. Needless to say Fran was touched. And now I bid you farewell as I go off to bed and hopefully get a good night's sleep. If not you may see another card here tomorrow!

Gone to the Dogs!

Today I took Mr. Darcy to be groomed and boy did he need it. I always like to make a card to put a tip in for the groomer and since it was the holidays I thought instead of reindeer, I would stamp a dog from the D is for Dog set in Christmas colors. By the way Mr. Darcy looked so cute when I picked him up. The girls had put a red collar on him with bells!

Trying to Catch Up

I forever feel like I'm constantly apologizing for not keeping up with this blog which I love. These past few months have been crazy with work, stamping, classes, and health issues. I found out yesterday that I have a torn tendon in my foot which explains the pain and swelling I have been experiencing this past year and a half. I just thought it was just my arthritis and that I should deal with it but at least now I can do something about it. Last night I went to my demo meeting at my upline's house. We had a potluck dinner, exchanged handmade stamped gifts and made some awesome projects with some of them from the new mini. Love that milk carton sissix die! Anyway I only scheduled two classes this month because I know a lot of people are stressed and busy and so am I but I hope to play a little this weekend and get some new cards and projects posted for you. I hope you all have a great weekend and stay warm wherever you may live! Check back tomorrow! Smiles. Debbie
