Merriest Wishes to You

I've been trying to keep up with my blog since returning home from overseas and I must confess that I'm having a tough time.  Everyday something fascinating happens to me and I tell myself, "you must share this with your blog visitors!"

Then something happens once I get home… My thoughts become jumbled (is that even a word) and they overwhelm me.  I feel as if you will not feel the same excitement I did when I write it (am I going bananas?)… LOL.

As I start to re-live the excitement, I feel like I'm writing way too much (like right now).  So let me get to  my quick & easy cards I made after I ran out of my batch of original Christmas cards.


I used most of my left over scraps to make these cards because as you know I throw nothing away. The Tag It stamp set was perfect too!  I stamped the tag twice… first with basic black ink and then real red ink.

I then punch Santa Clause with the Curly Label punch.  I love anything with a 3-D effect.

Now, I'm going to tell you about an amazing lady I had the pleasure of meeting last week.  Her name is Linda (her real name too… LOL) and it's amazing how I met her, but I'll save that story for another day.

I was simply picking up a handmade pen a friend of her husband made for me (does that make sense)… one thing led to another and we sat and drank coffee and chatted up a thunderstorm for a little over three hours!

It was met to be and I made a new crafting friend… I'm still giddy from her friendship.  I accidently dropped my identification card in her living room and I had to swing back and pick it up (I wonder if it was really an accident or just an excuse to go back and chat some more)… LOL.

Linda even made me cookies when I returned to pick up my ID card… I'm so thankful and blessed to have made a new friend!
