Christmas Cards & Baby Showers

It has been a busy week. 

Last Saturday was Crop Night and because of scheduling issues it was only Amy and I at crop.  That has not happened in a long time but it was also nice to have one on one time with Amy. 

During my time at crop I was able to finish the last of the cards that I needed to make for the First United Methodist Church Fall Bazaar. 

Fall Bazaar

Saturday October  26, 2013

First United Methodist Church

601 Greenville Ave

Allen, Texas 75002

9am – 4pm

Driving DirectionsAllen is 30 miles north of Dallas off Hwy. 75 N. (Central Expressway).  Take the Bethany exit in Allen, drive east to the 2nd stoplight (Greenville Ave), turn north or left.  FUMC is the 3rd church on the right (green roof).

This year I will be showing example of CTMH’s beautiful products, selling some retired stamps (cheap), giving away catalogs and best of all selling hand made greeting cards. 

I have spent the last couple of months working on nothing but greeting cards just for this Fall Bazaar.  Come out to not only visit my booth but bring cash and get your Christmas shopping DONE at the many other booths that will be there also.   It is a beautiful way to spend a Saturday afternoon if I do say so myself!

Once I finished my last set of cards that I need for the Fall Bazaar I moved on to getting my own Christmas cards started.   This year I am using the

Workshops On The Go® Frosted Cardmaking Kit

$24.95 G1063


I am making enough cards for about 30 people so I bough enough extra paper to make this card workshop stretch to 30 cards.  A few of the cards will have different embellishments but that is ok with me.  Not all of the cards are going to the same address so they can look slightly different and it will keep it interesting for me to work on.

Tonight I was in the process of cleaning up my scraproom when a friend at work texted me that she would like me to make about 15 baby shower invitations for her.

Oh goody this means I can play with a new stamp!


B Is For Baby

$17.95 D1561


I am also going to be using the flip side of

Babycakes Paper Packet

$9.95 X7173B


I love how the Slate patterned paper looks with Blush cardstock.  Why yes she is having a baby girl as her first grandchild.   Her only requirements were to keep it simple and I know how to do that!

So tonight when I should be sleeping because we are having my daughter 17th birthday party tomorrow I am playing with my stamps and cardstock because I am to excited to sleep!

These are going to be some beautiful invitations.
