This past week has been BUSY around here. I entertained both GDs on Veterans Day, we painted, glued, glittered and played outside. Hannah (who is 8 yrs old) wrote a book about Fairies, which I made a hard cover and bound together. Megan played dress-up and danced around in her tutu (which is an old net slip square dancers wear).
Thursday Megan was back to keep me company, as that was the day her "other" Grandma had her lump-ectomy. All went well and the doctor was really pleased with the surgery and feel like he got it all. Once the biopsy is back on the lymph glands, they also removed, the doctor will decide how they will progress with the end treatments. Carol (the "other") is in good spirits, now that the surgery is behind her. Thank you all for the good wishes and prayers.........they were ALL needed!
What else did I do, besides play with the kids???? Well.........once I rested for a couple hours I came back to the craft room and Betsy and started working on Christmas cards. I think I spent most of Saturday working on them. One idea after an other popped into my head to I kept at it until I had quite a pile of cards made. Here are a few, that don't have much glitter on them. I find that glitter does not scan well, so the ones that sparkle will have to be photographed.......I'll post those later.
The one on the left I made 10 of, quick and easy. I love this Santa image and made him a little more vintage.
These 5 all have the sentiments that were bought at the end of last year, on clearance! The top right came about because of the background paper that somebody sent me years ago. The bottom two have background paper that really is muted and worn looking (so it's not a bad scan....LOL) I thought the store bought sentiments were really a great idea.......last year! I wasn't really crazy about using them on cards, once I got started, but I needed to use them and not "stash" them. I am very proud of myself for using them and for the fact that I whittled down my stack of Christmas stash to almost nil............grin. I think I totaled out at about 30 cards!!!! The 10 of the light pole were started before Saturday and having all those scraps cut-to-size, before I began, really did help cut down on time.......Oh, BAD pun.....LOL
I also did some journaling and doodling, but all that can wait for an other post, as I am rather late for tea this week. Mr. Sandman had other ideas about me posting before bedtime last night.........grin!
Have a great week and thanks for stopping by for tea or just for pleasure.
Let me know you came by!
Inky Hugs and glittery kisses (that glitter is still EVERY WHERE)
