Thanksgiving Is Over

Aloha Crafty Friends!!! 

Now that Thanksgiving is over... it's time for the Christmas RUSH! LOL... honestly, I finished most of my Christmas shopping online for my family n' friends, done the day after Thanksgiving. Now, just gotta do the finishing touches of some of our family on the mainland, my boys n' my parents. So glad that I got majority of it done. However, that doesn't mean that I'm free to do anything... actually, December is the craziness and busiest for me as a wife to my hubs. Because he is invited to Christmas Company's Parties, and we are blessed to go and show our appreciation for their business. It's fun. We always see the same peeps every year, and look forward to the next year of seeing them again. :) God is GOOD!!!!  So, unfortunately, I won't be hosting any Crafty Sessions until' January, 2018. 



^This is a pic of our turkey that my hubby made for Thanksgiving. He always blesses us by cooking up a feast for Thanksgiving. I have never made a turkey in my life. Which I'm sad to say, because I so want to make one. But he insists on making it every Thanksgiving, so just gonna be happy n' enjoy the blessing that the Lord has given me... my hubby!!!!  We usually host a big gathering, but we decided to take a break and just have a quiet Thanksgiving together, as family. It was really nice to have a lot of left overs this year. LOL!!!

So today, I am sharing with you a few cards that I had made, starting with these cards that I made to complete the Birthday Card order I had. I am no longer taking card/project orders for the rest of the year, because I'm working on Christmas cards for myself. LOL!

Here are the 2 cards that completed my Birthday Card order:

Here's what I used:

  • Pineapple Image: LSHD Digitals
  • Hula Girl: Create In Me Stamp (Colored w/Copics)
  • Pennant Die Cut: Lawn Fawn (Used on FSJ Platinum Machine)
  • Twine: Amazon
  • Cardstock, DSP, Sentiment: Stampin' Up!
I also decided that I was gonna make and send out handmade cards this year. Thanks Ali for the encouragement n' push to create handmade instead of photo cards. I gotta make at least 50. Have already made 16? But here are a few I worked on... 




I'm working on 4 at a time. Praying that with this goal, I'll be done way before Christmas.

Here's what I used to create the cards above:

  • Moose, Stars & Stripes: LSHD Digitals (Moose is a Print2Cut on my eClips2 machine).
  • Twine: FSJ
  • Cardstocks: Stampin' Up!
  • Sentiment: My Stash (unknown)
I'll be sharing more of my Christmas projects so stay tuned!!  Thanks for visiting. 


With Love In Christ,
Jen
