M is for Merry

Another card to share...this one is from my sister Jill.  OK - you just have to know...my sister doesn't like bows.  So this is huge that she has a bow on this card.  Didn't she do a great job?  Thanks Jill!

'tis the season

I'm receiving some wonderful holiday cards from my downline, club members & customers.  I thought I share a few with you today and tomorrow.  Enjoy!

I received this cheerful card from my downline - Laurie Z.  It made me smile!

Working on Big Project...

I'm trying to finish up a major project for the holidays.  My daughter and I are making 8 scrapbook calendars for various family members.  Our goal is to have all of the months scrapbooked with space for a picture of Max.  All she'll have to do is send a picture each month to everyone and they can adhere it in the reserved space.

Wanna sneak peak?  What am I saying...of course you do!

April

This page uses the soon to be retired "Creative License".  It's a level one hostess selection (you only need $150 is sales to earn this great Simply Scrappin' kit). 

Also - you might be wondering..."Is that a new punch she is using?"  Nope - it's not.  It's a quick and easy technique I'll be showing at my new Catalog Kick-Off on January 5th.  You won't want to miss it.  Sign up for your free stamping time 9:00, 10:30 or noon.  See here for more details!

As usual - leave a comment for the final drawing at the end of the week.

Enjoy -Dawn


Fond Farewell Countdown #10

As some of you know, I became a Grandma this year.  I'm just lovin' it!  His name is Maxwell and he is such a beautiful baby and has brought such joy into my life. 

My daughter and I made his birth announcements with the retiring stamp set "Bundle of Joy".  Tip on mounting the announcement wording...I split the image in two.  Mounting "Introducing our Little Bundle of Joy" on the end of the stamp.  I love that I have that option with mounting my own stamps!

So here it is...

And now...

Max6mo

In this picture he is 6 months...isn't he adorable!!!  He's eating his first cookie (teething biscuit).  My husband refers to it as "cookie gravy".  Which is a good description of what it becomes as he sucks on it.  I just love this picture...it makes me smile every time I walk past the fridge. 

We get to babysit today!  He'll be here in a few hours, so I better get off the computer and get everything ready.

Thank you for indulging me today - Dawn

Fond Farewell Countdown #9

OK - I've reached waaaay back into the archives for today's farewell..."Flakey Friends".  This was my very first winter holiday set.  The cards I made with this set really make me smile.  So sit back and relax - cause I guess I must have really liked this set a lot!

This last one is my favorite.  The greeting I added to the inside of this card was "Mittens warms hands, Friendship warms hearts".  It is such a perfect saying for this card...don't ya think! 

So now that I've shared with you - you can share with me.  Leave a comment to let me know which card is your favorite.  (Remember...all comments are included in my weekly "Fond Farewell Drawing".  So share away!)

Thanks - Dawn O
