My freckled Cowgirl!

My new Sharpe poster pen leaked when I was putting dots on her face and I didn't know how to fix it. I finally scrapped some of it off but it pretty much ruined her face with big dots. I loved the rest of the card and don't want to throw it away. I learned not to push more than one on it to bring out the paing.

For a Friend

This card is for one of my dear friends on SCS. I always draw some names from a large group of friends on SCS and send at least 10 to 15 Christmas cards out. I can't send more than that cause I have to have 36 for Grandkids and great grandkids and then another 30 to 50 for family members so don't usually have time to make more. I know if I would make a few Christmas cards every week I would not have so much to do in Dec. I always say "next year" but do not ever seem to get it done. I should never have started sending every grandchild an Easter, Halloween and Christmas card and then their birthday cards but I did and most of them expect them now. I have lots of cooking to do tomorrow as I am sure everyone else does too. I hope everyone has a fabulous Thanksgiving. I know I have so much to be thankful for.

For one of my Grandsons

This is one of my favorite Penny Black images. It is for one of my Grandsons or Great Grandsons. I am not good at embellishing cards for men or boys, especially Christmas cards.

Another Christmas Card

Here is another new Magnolia Christmas card. I love this one and hope one of my Grandaughters will like it. I'm not sure which one will get it yet. Nothing new going on here, just trying to get the house ready for Denise and Scott, my oldest son who will both be staying here during Thanksgiving.

Made with Secret Sister kit

This card was made with a kit I received for our November Secret Sister swap. I don't know who my SS is but she has great taste. I loved my package and I'll have several more cards made soon out of this kit. I have another kit that I have already made 2 cards out of to put on here later. I hope she likes what I did with it. After I took this photo I added three small red rhinestones to the sentiment.

Fall card and Baby Jade

A photo of me and baby Jade the night before I left for Oregon. The other is a fall card that I made before I left. I am coming home from my trip today. It has been a wonderful 2 weeks but know I need to get home. My Mother and DH need me there and looking forward to seeing them and my other children.
