Some holiday cards. . .

Starting to make some holiday cards, you can check out my challenge 8 from Clothing at the Cocoa Daisy crop. We are giving away gift certificates as prizes! Card made entirely from Cocoa Daisy November Bed and Breakfast and add-ons.
Happy Weekend to you! Until Later. ;)

Crop pages

My first page for the Cocoa Daisy fall Crop for challenge #3, involving labels. I love labels, used two on here. I saw that apple on a sign for the elections this week for the district school board, and I loved that idea! I used a heart from photoshop, reverse printed and cut it out. Love this kit (Cocoa Daisy's Bed and Breakfast and add-ons). I also really like cream colored cardstock (included in the main kit.)
Happy Friday to you! Until tomorrow. Will be posting more stuff this weekend. PS Thank you to all the soldiers, The home of the free because of the Brave.

I'm finishing up a few things, would love to see you all there. These crops are the best! And you don't need to have a Cocoa Daisy kit, just use your stash. Everyone is welcome! Happy Tuesday, until tomorrow.

A Sunday drive-by

One last page from the Cocoa Daisy October kit Farmer's Market:
I really loved that kit. Just finished a page and a card with the November kit for the crop next weekend (will post a schedule for the crop here soon). Got a new computer yesterday as my old one is acting strangely and sadly on it's last leg. All photos are backed up though, no worries. I'm fanatical about that. Happy about the new iMac though, and a new version of photoshop to learn. You can't get too comfortable with either your computer, software, printer or camera in this hobby, some if not all are bound to change about every 5-6 years. Hope you have a great Sunday, I appreciate you welcoming me back to blogging again. Happy weekend to you! :)

October Hangover

I never really meant to disappear for the month of October, but it just kind of happened. Nothing bad, we were just outside and busy doing all things fall. We went of vacation at the end of Sept, and subsequently I never really caught up (from laundry either). Then there were pumpkin patches and corn mazes and school field trips and before I even looked up it was Halloween. (This photo was taken outside the haunted house/base Halloween party we attended.) It even snowed the weekend before Halloween. First time in years my dh has been home, I'm thinking it was a biblical sign. :)

I took about a 1000 photos, need to do an October daily in the worst possible way. I have some pages from Cocoa Daisy to share, will have more after the crop this weekend. I am really looking forward to that. There were made with the Cocoa Daisy November kit Bed and Breakfast. You will love all the embellishments in the main kit, good stuff and a cute stamp.

Honestly, the last week and a half have been tough. I've not been feeling well, a lot of joint pain and my stomach is pretty upset. After talking with several family members with this illness, they all tell me how the change in season usually adversely affects them and the arthritis. So, I'm trying to tough it out and just see what happens over the next few weeks. Perhaps it will just get better on it's own without intervention. Going to stay positive. I've got a birthday party to plan and the holidays to get ready for, (and I haven't even started hyperventilating in to a bag yet, so I've got things to do. :) )

Thinking of blogging more, but making shorter, more frequent posts, with or perhaps without photos. Happy weekend to you! Until tomorrow. . .
