Sorry that I haven't posted in a while, I have been very busy moving!!! A matter a fact, on Christmas Day, I was taking down Christmas decorations and packing them into a big trailer. My hubbys boss lent him his trailer for moving race cars, so we thought that we better take advantage of that and move as much as possible to Estevan right away! So aside from the Christmas meals we were packing, packing, and packing.
The rest of the move will be completed next weekend!! So for now I am packing everything in boxes and setting it all by the door to be moved! Who would have ever thought that in less then 10 years, we would accumulate sooooooo much stuff!!!
I do have a new card for you. My cousin just had a baby, so I thought that I should pop a card in the mail to her in Vancouver. It's her first baby, so I bet she is a little nervous. (I know I would be!!)
I made this card with the Wild about you set from the Stampin' Up Catalogue. I love this set, it is so cute and fun and good for guys and girls! I also used a stamp from the set "looks like spring" and another favorite "seeing spots". I hope that you enjoy my card, and if you have any questions, Please ask!!

Just wanted to let you all know that we sold our house. The deal was finalized today!!!!
So, my posts will probably be more few and far between for a while, Sorry!!
I am going to be packing like MAD for the next 4 weeks, and trying to find an apartment in Melville for a couple of months and then moving to Estevan in April/May.
I will keep you updated on what happens, and make sure you check back every once in a while, because I will try to post something new.
Have a Very Merry Christmas and a Happy and Healthy New Year!

In other news, it was just one of those bad days today. Work was frustrating, I haven't heard anything about my house except....that we may have a crack in the heat exchanger. So what does that mean? I think it means more dealing, if they still want the house, but I have been on pins and needles all day. The best part of my day was helping my Mom make a card for someone who is picking something up for her from Regina, and working out at the gym. Sometimes it really helps to get rid of some of the frustrations!!! :-)
Have a great day everyone, and here's hoping that tomorrow is better!!!!

I just decided that I LOVE watercolor paper!!! You can go over it numerous times with a wet paintbrush and it doesn't wreck the paper. Now if I had done that with any "other" paper...the paper never would have held up.
I don't know about the rest of you, but we are getting ONE BIG STORM out there!! I think it is supposed to snow for a couple of days. Oh, why can't it be spring??
And the good news, I am at least half done my Christmas Shopping!! Yay!! Unfortunately, I will have to wait till I have more money to finish. Hmmmm, which comes first, Christmas presents or more stamps??? I have a great idea!!! How about I just get everyone stamps, and they all let me hold on to the stamps for them! Sounds good to me.
My DH bought me a awesome Christmas gift on Saturday. He bought me the Cuttlebug!! I just hope now that he lets me buy dies for it...lol... Maybe once Christmas is over, when he actually lets me play with it, I will have something to show on my blog!! Wouldn't that be great!! Ok, maybe I'm the only one excited, but I can't wait!!

Here is another new card for you. It has been made using the set "A Merry Little Christmas". I like this set so much too!!
The only thing I would do differently is I stamped all the holly in the background with one of Stampin' Up!'s small background sets, but I didn't think that was enough, so I decided to color all the holly in with my blender pen and Classic Stamp pads. It took WAY too long to do!!
I'm now trying to make lots of cards for Christmas, and if I go as fast as I did for this card, then I will be lucky to have 20 cards altogether!!
Well, off to the gym. I ate a chocolate bar today, gotta go and try to burn it off!!
Catch you later!

Sorry for not posting for a few days, unfortunatly it is going to happen again, I'm sure. I have been trying to post, but too much is happening. First of all, my DH hit a deer with our car. Our beautiful 2005 Ford Taurus (which I just let him drive recently!!!), it has OVER $10,000 damage, but they are going to fix it! YAY!!! I was afraid that if they wrote it off, I would never get a Taurus again, because the DH wants a darn truck. What good is a truck if you are trying to save money on gas so you can buy more stamps??? What's a girl to do??
So I was totally exausted for my card class on Monday, because of the truck incident which happened to be Sunday night. But it went well anyways!! I had 4 ladies attend and they each made 9 cards. 3 each of 3 different cards. I learnt one very important thing during my class, less watercoloring. Take a look above at the cards we made, I didn't think they were so bad, but it took a long time to watercolor, especially the flaky friends set. But everyone loved the cards, and the class helped to sell some Watercolor Wonder Crayons - which are wonderful!!! Ooh, I have a little tip. It was really easy for everyone to use the Watercolor Wonder Crayons, because they could all use them at the same time. They simply scribbled with some of the crayons onto palete paper, and then used a blender pen to pick up the color. It worked wonderful!!
So, I will be away this weekend, I am going to Estevan to go pick up the DH and my dog. And then on Saturday, I am going to Saskatoon. Probably won't be anything new on here till sometime next week, just so you don't keep looking!!
Chat with you later!!
