Pretty in Pink

Just a quick post today after another busy week. I am sitting here listening to a late November thunderstorm which seems very odd for this time of year. Still....I'll take it. If it's raining, it means it isn't snowing though the cats don't share the same sentiment and immediately ran under the bed when the thunder boomed.

This card is made with paper I have used several times in the past because I really like the colour combination. It's from Anna Griffin who has some of the prettiest papers out there. The ribbon and lace are from my bag-0-ribbon, crystal brads are Making Memories and rub-ons are Melissa Frances.

Happy Weekend and for all my American friends, hope you had a great Thanksgiving!

Where does the time go????

My sincerest apologies for my lengthy absence from the blog world. My life has been so hectic these last couple of months. First of all, I am working tons of overtime; second of all, Christmas shopping takes up what little time I have left and third of all....well, third of all, I just need some chill time now and then.

However, I am back to the cardmaking world as I took off a couple of days vacation to try to catch my breath. Wouldn't you know it, it rained and rained and rained today but, that's OK - it gave me a chance to get some inside stuff done.

I made this first card for my mom's 85th Birthday which was today - Happy Birthday, Mom! The family took her and some of her friends out for Sunday brunch a couple of weeks ago so today was kind of anti-climatic for her but a day filled with lots of good wishes from friends and family. The flower paper is from a company called "Scrapbour", matched with some yellow polka-dotted paper from Bazill. Lace and ribbon is from my overstuffed ribbon drawer, rub-ons are Melissa Frances and the rhinestone swirl is Making Memories.

This second card is for a 50th Wedding Anniversary and is made with paper from "The Paper Company". The chipboard frame is "Making Memories", rub-ons are Melissa Frances and the gold corners are peel and stick. All flowers are from Beatriz Jennings' etsy shop at .

I hope we can talk again sooner than later. Rain, rain go away and enjoy your weekend.
