My Christmas Card for 2008

I always make my Christmas cards for special friends & family. This year I came up with a super easy design. I used pre-made cards by K and Company (designer Brenda Walton.....I love her style)......the embossing was already done for me.....YAY! Then I punched some circles & dotted away with Liquid Pearls "White Opal" (thank you Nora). Then I used Ranger's "Stickles" glitter for some added bling. I topped it off with a little snowflake & tied some pretty ribbon around it from JoAnn's Crafts. Voila! Easy Peasy!

A Big Thank You

I want to thank my dear sweet friend & sis ~ Nora for all of her help making this blog possible. She was so very helpful to me & held my hand through this process all the while being in great pain (we're praying for your healing, Sis).

She taught me how to decorate the walls, hang some purty pictures on the walls & deck the halls! I'm not such a plain Jane any more! Whatcha think?

Thanks a bunch, Sis! I couldn't have done it without your help! You Rock!

Love you!

ps......I just mailed out my Christmas cards & as soon as they land I will share the pics with you all.......pinkie promise. lol

A Brand New Venture

I wanted to do something challenging before the end of the this is it! I'm totally stepping out of my comfort zone into Blogland after some encouragement from my "sisters from other misters" (as Nora would say....LOL) who were brave enough to take the plunge waaaaay before me (I'm the "chicken" sister.....LOL). Thanks Nora, Kathe & Charlene for paving the way!

I look forward to this journey & know I've got A LOT to learn about designing & creating & sharing in this blog.

(I really need to do something with this place! It's looking pretty drab! LOL)

Thanks for taking the journey with me! I look forward to making new friends!

Huggies & Blessings to you all!
