Well my day didn't go as planned....but then again it never does.
If you remember my plan, it was to have a Christmas Card making Marathon all day.
Sadly that didn't happen :(
But I did get a few cards completed :)
It takes me forever to make a card.
I had these images coloured already and used some pre-made card bases from Michael's from the cheapy bins.
I usually don't make cute cards for Christmas....but this one turned out cute (well at least I think so ).
I thought this paper was a fun one to use, especially since little reindeer here was stringing some lights :) This paper is probably at least 10 years old :0
Here is the inside of the card.
I got this idea to stamp the inside from Kim of Prairiepaperandink...another crafty Canadian girl :)
I embossed the sentiment.
Here is the inside of the second card.
I added sparkle to the lights and again embossed the sentiment.
Now this card was easy as I had this front done from last year, lol.
It may have been easy, but still not fast....what is wrong with me?
I embossed the angel in gold embossing powder.
Masked the moon off and inked the paper in blue.
I just had to add something, so I added the sparkle twine. I am loving this twine.
Look what I got in the mail today. It came in a huge box.
It didn't have a return address on the box, or a card inside it.
So after I admired this beautiful wreath, I checked the postage label.
It came from Whitehorse, Yukon.
I have a high school friend that lives there. I remember on Face book, we were going to do the hand made Pay It Forward that was going around on there. So I am thinking that is who made it.
I tried to contact her but haven't been able to yet.
Isn't it so pretty :) So sparkly.
Onto My Day:
I received a few business calls this morning, so I worked all morning.
At lunch I picked up Kristy and her boyfriend Blake. I needed Kristy to help me with a gift for her daddy :) Then I treated them for lunch.
Ashley came home for lunch. So as we chatted as I wrapped gifts.
I was in the swing of it, so I didn't stop until I was finished.
I didn't get to making cards until after supper.
Made a young girl happy with some goodies I sent her :)
Spending time with my daughters.
Completed wrapping the gifts that I have so far.
Made 3 cards, I guess I am proud of that ;)
What have you done today to make you feel proud?
