A week?

Seriously, someone must have hit the fast forward button- you know the 8x one. It seems like I have been losing time since August. (Yeah, I am still trying to find the couple of days I lost while staying at the hospital with Hailey- in August!!) It has been almost a week since I posted, and what have I done in that week??? Well, just a whole lot of little things. Nothing huge, just TONS of little things.

Tuesday night I did get in a little work time. I almost finished 18 Christmas cards. I need to find the perfect ribbon to finish them up, and then I can share them with you. I have one Masculine Birthday card to do yet this year. My goal was to send B-day cards to my dad's side of the family. Well I have almost made it. That was almost 50 birthday cards for the year. Wow!!

This is my heat and dry embossed card. The Metallic green paper was dry embossed with the Big Shot and a texture plate.The Cars image and the word "cars" was heat embossed using black ink and clear embossing powder. A little bit of black card stock and a thin green ribbon finished this one. DH thought this one was pretty cool looking- in other words it was more to his liking, he prefers it to the more girlie cards I make. LOL

My Aunt had her surgery last Thursday. The kidney was removed, and she will not need any Chemo or Radiation. The surgery went well, and she is recovering nicely. Thank the Lord for watching over her.

Until later~

Great card! I'm always on the lookout for some great masculine cards.
Thanks for making me feel closer to normal. I'm still trying to catch up from August too and really, when you think about it, the whole year will be over soon. Lord willing I'll be caught up by then!
