Curtain Call 58

This was a fun card to make.
I used my Simply Charmed cartridge to cut this ornament on my Cricut.
I didn't think i would like these colors together but i really do.
This card is so much cuter than the picture shows. I need to get better at taking pictures.

I embossed the Holly Jolly Christmas to the side. First time i have done a side stamp like that and i really like how it turned out. It's fun to try new things.  The stickle glitter doesn't show up too good in this photo but it is on the ornament.
Have a great day.

Curtain Call 57

I really like these colors together.  I wanted a planner for Christmas to keep all my notes and ideas together so i made a little notebook cover instead of a card today.
The pictures didn't turn out the best but you get the idea.
Enjoy the Holidays
Happy Thanksgiving.


There is a little pocket you can add your receipts, or coupons.
Just right for the holidays.

Curtain Call 56


Another fun challenge:

I needed to make a baby card and thought these colors would work.
Here is my card.
Let me know what you think.

12 Days of Christmas

Working on something fun for some of the younger grandkids.
A little booklet made from envelopes. Cut in 1/2 and decorated.
I am going to add a picture to color, A concentration game to cut out and play.
stickers, candy, gum, jewelery, cars, bracelets, hair clips, sheet music for those who
play certain instruments and tiny toys.  I think this should be fun for them.

President Vaughn J. Feathersone

I have been in a slump lately. Probably because i can't find a job and i am constantly worried about how i am going to make my next house payment.  Then to top things off i had to go to the Dr. for some minor issues.  Waiting for the test results.  That is always worrisome. Seems my faith is being tested more and more each day.  I found the scripture mastery site i posted just below this post and thought that would be a good thing to work on each day. A new scripture to TRY and memorize.  I add President Vaughn J. Featherstone's pattern for memorization here:
1. Memorize the material.
2. Repeat it every hour for a day.
3. Repeat it every day for a week.
4. Repeat it every week for a month
5. Repeat it every month for a year

I have used this with numerous scriptures and it is true.  Those that seem to be our favorites, we can memorize and rattle off with ease.  I am going to try and make more of these scriptures my favorites using his memorization technique so i can rattle them off with ease.  I hope you will too.
