Angela's Birthday

Hi everyone, well, I told you I was not going to be very good at keeping this blog posted.  I keep forgetting about it. We celebrated our Ladies Night Out at church on Monday and it was a hugh success.  It is a a night that the church puts on to celebrate the women in the church. We want to make sure that all the women in the church have some sort of christmas so they dedicate the night to not only the women in the church, but a local women's shelter is also supported.  The church  showers the women in the shelter to a day of spa treatment.  Makeovers, hair cuts, nails, lunch, dinner etc.  They also give them a gift at the actual banquet.  They also provide gifts for the single mom's and widow's of the church.  It is a very lovely time for everyone to share their love and faith with each other.  This year we had a beautiful woman speaker, Lynette Lewis, that shared her  testimony.  She was just awesome......
Anyhow, the card that I am sharing today was given to my dear friend Angela.  This is another Elizabeth Bell stamp.  As you can tell by now, I just love her work... Hope you like the card.

Well, I told you all that I would have a hard time keeping up with this blog.  I have had my grandson here for about 10 days while his father went deer hunting and his mother went home to to go work.  We celebrated Thanksgiving last week because my son-in-law has to work on Thanksgiving right in the middle of the day so we would not be able to celebrate with him. But as it turned out, my son left the morning that we were going to celebrate so now Angelo and I and Sharna are going to my son's to celebrate with him on Thanksgiving Day.  Angelo has been pretty sick with some sort of virus this whole week so I have been very busy taking care of him, taking care of my grandson, coordinating our Church Christmas Party that is November 28th, and preparing a Thanksgiving dinner.  Wow, I am getting old. I had to make about 100 telephone calls for people to help with the Christmas Party and boy oh never use to bother me as much as it does now.  I really don't like being on the phone that much anymore..
I am posting a card that I made for a friend of mine as a Thank You card.  We just met her and she invited Angelo and I to her beautiful home on Higgins Lake.  She waited 25 years to get this particular house and she finally did it.  She was raised on Higgins lake and still has another home there but she always wanted this particular home and when it became available she bought it.  I am so happy for her because it is her dream home.  Anyhow, I hope that you like the card and I will try to be better at posting but you all know me...Probably not going to happen....

Just Because

Hello everyone and Happy Thursday to ya.  I am going to post a card that I gave to my youngest daughter a while back.  There was really no reason for it just to say that I love you.  This is a Elizabeth Bell creation which by now you all know that she is my all time favorite artist.  Just love her and her talent to death.
I am going to celebrate Thanksgiving with my family this weekend as we are not all able to get together on the actual day (which happens to be my birthday this year. He He. I was reminded of that today)..Anyhow, waiting for my son and his family to arrive from Ohio.  I wish I could spend more time with them as I really miss them (especially my grandson, Mikey)..
Hope you enjoy this image......

Happy Birthday Anne

Happy Tuesday to all.  Well today I went to my Ladies Bible Study that was awesome but as soon as I left I started feeling crummy.  By the time I got home my head was pounding , my throat was killing me and I ached all over.  I came in the house and laid right on the couch and fell asleep.I slept for about 2 hours and tonight I feel a little better.
Well, My girlfriend, Anne celebrated her birthday Sunday so I am going to show you the card that I made for her.  I hope you had a wonderful birthday Anne and you were the best assistant ever........ I love the expression on this little one's face....

Anniversary Card

Happy Monday to you.  Today I spent the day at church starting to get ready for our Ladies Night out Christmas Party.  It is becoming a hugh success.  Each year it seems like more and more people are attending.  It is a very nice way to spend the night with other christian women sharing their faith in the Lord.   We have so many talented women in our church that contribute to making it a hugh success. Our own Amy J. Mitchell is so talented and creative and comes up with all the visuals for the night. She works so hard at being creative and making sure that all the ladies enjoy themselves.   Of course our pastors wife, Pastor Connie, is the back bone for this and all of the women's ministry events.  Pastor Connie's heart is making sure that all women, especially the single mothers and widows have a blessed christmas. We are so very fortunate to have her.  All of us appreciate her so much..
Well,  today I am going to show you a card that I made for Angelo for our anniversary this year.  It was a fun card to do but not sure that I appreciate the fact that it shows that we BOTH are getting older!!!!!!!
Hope you enjoy it..........

Hope that all of you had a good weekend.  I spend time with my husband's family Friday night which is always a good time. Went to dinner at my daughter's house tonight and had a lovely dinner.  Always love being able to spend time with my children.  All of my children are always so busy as they are all professional people and it seems like they work all the time.  I spend time with my son and daughter-in-law and only grand son last week which is always good.  Angelo and I were able to spend Halloween with my grandson, Michael, and celebrate my son's birthday.  Alway's a good time.
I met a wonderful christian woman, Marilou on Make It Crafty, and she helped me tweek my new blog.. Do you like it?  She was sooooo sweet and patient with me.... I so appreciate all the time that she took helping me to get it where it is now.  She redid my arrangement and redid my header for me.  I love it....
Don't you just love the fact that we can come in contact with people from across the world and not ever meet them yet, we become friends.  That is the one great thing about social networking isn't it???
Well, I am going to show you my attempt at pleats and maybe in the near future you will see a better  job as I am going to continue to work at it..... Ha ha.........I am a work in progress!!!!!!!!!!

....Here is a card that I did for a friend of mine on her birthday.  You cannot see the front really well but it was suppose to be a Angel on the front and it says "On Your Birthday... and on the inside it is a little devil that says "Which One Will You Be....  It was a fun card to make...  I hope both images show up so you can see them..The horns, tail and shoes  have Diamond Glaze on them and it is really thick so it really pops....
....I would like to shout out a big THANK YOU to NORA for all her help.  She offered, mind you, to help with my new blog and boy I am sure she regretted it.  Not as sharp as her on this computer stuff but I muddled through it with her help and learning how to put "blinkies" on my side bar.  That was my soul reason for getting a blog..Ha Ha..  Anyhow Nora..I owe you big...BIG KISSES COMING YOUR WAY♥♥♥♥♥♥♥.
I am posting my new version of swinging by that I merged to show you that I actually did it....No cutting out this time.. Thank Goodness.....

Swinging By

....I wanted to merge a couple of images together and could not figure it out so I did this image seperately and cut them out.  Wooziers... Not going to do that again... Well, I actually don't have to do it again thanks to Zoe of "Make It Crafty".  She helped me learn how to merge my images and could not be happier.  Thank you again Zoe for all of your help with everything..  So here is my first attempt before merging...

New Blogger

....Good morning everyone...I am attempting to get into blogging so this is my first attempt.  I may mess up some as I am going at this alone but you achieve success by trial and error, right?  Anyhow, I am going to post this to see if anyone is comes onto this blog and if I did it right.  I am not quite sure why I decided to create a blog but it seems like the thing to do right now, KWIM???  Anyhow, if you are out there and read this, please let me know.  I of course will have to learn how to download things, etc but this is step #1....
