Cutting Cafe Blog Hop

Hooray I have drawn the wining name: Margie of Bellabug Creations. I will have Regina get you the printable set immediately. Congrats...and thanks to all that participated in The Cafe's Blog Hop. Regina, that sweet sharing Regina, is offering up a free set of printables. We designers were allowed to select the set we wished to design with AND offer that set to any visitor who leaves a comment on each of our blogs. This is a blog hop so be sure to hop along to each designer and leave your comments. Here's the Cutting Cafe blog for your inspiration.

I chose "You're In My Thoughts Inside and Out" printable. There are mega choices on this set. Here is my card. I cut a Nestie opening on the front of my embossed blue card stock and I set the Nestie cut inside that has the sentiment. I surrounded the opening with sweet flowers and a butterfly, and a few pearls to enhance. The sentiment has been embossed as well.
Regina will post our designs on Wednesday, and I will do a drawing my comment section on Friday. So check back after 2PM on Friday and see if you are the winner. Thanks for looking.

Merry Christmas

To all of my design team sisters, for all of my wonderful bloggy friends and to each follower who visits here...I wish you each a Merry Christmas and I pray that your new year will be healthy, happy and prosperous for each of you.
My son and daughter in law share my Thanksgiving, and they spend Christmas with her family in Connecticut. For 21 years I have always fixed a family recipe of my mother's called "Stacked Tacos" and this meal is shared with my Uncle Jack. For the first time in 21 years the tradition has been halted due to his passing on December 6. Tomorrow I will sew, and my day will be filled with memories to soothe my sad sad heart.
My Lorelie Lap Quilt is finally finished. I started this early last year but last week I finally picked up the blocks and created this small lap throw. It's a bright and cheery fabric with darling Lorelie designs that I toned down with black and white fabrics of all patterns. I love this little quilt....

Merry Christmas one and all...

Cutting Cafe/Rain Rain

It is me...back again. I took a wee break to get myself settled down and take care of things that I had to get through. My Uncle Jack passed away December 6th and life has been a series of weeping, anger, a struggle to understand all things .. In addition to feeling the void of my Uncle not being in my daily life, I felt the loss of mojo to create. Our Inspiration Post for Cutting Cafe on December 19 is from The Cafe's Rain Rain Go Away printables. Such a cute cute set to work with and as it so happens, I woke to rain this morning. Here is my card for the post.
I put the base card layer and the white mount through my Cuttlebug embossing folder as well as the Cafe's printable and the darling little rain boots. I added a CK Edge Punch, and some cute little red jewels for the flower centers. Hope you will take a peek on Wednesday to see the design team's contributions for this inspirational post at The Cafe.

Neglectful me...

I don't think I have ever neglected my wonderful blog like I have recently. My cherished Uncle Jack passed away on December 6th and I am busy doing all the things that a niece can do in such a sad time. I'll be back, my friends.... don't stray from me.
