Whew! I've been busy!

Yay!  Only 2 more days until Thanksgiving.  I'm so ready to hang out with family and friends and eat yummy food!  I've got all the name cards done (all 22 of them).  I did cute turkey ones for the kids, haystacks for the guys, and pumpkins for the ladies. 

I've got hostess gifts made and a fun Thanksgiving bingo game ready to go for the kids.  Feelin' good!

Yesterday I mailed off a box full of homemade Christmas cards for the Caring Hearts Drive...52 cards in all.  AND, I mailed off my homemade gift for the Holiday 2013 Handmade Gift Exchange!  Here's what I made for the gal I was paired up with:

A frame and jingle bells from Hobby Lobby (both half off, thank you very much), a sheet of pattern paper and my Sihouette and some vinyl and voila!  I love it!  Hope she does too!
And now...ready for card #4?  It's 4 of 5 cards I'm entering in Simon Says Stamp's Wednesday Challenge to use Heather's Sketch:

Once again, I'm using Simple Stories "Handmade Holidays" paper and stickers.

Go get your craft on!


  1. Your card is very cute! Love that tag! As for that Jingle frame... I think I need to make something like that! I LOVE it! :) Thanks so much for playing along with the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge!

  2. Hi Jingle! Thanks for your comment! You definitely need to make yourself a Jingle frame! It's a Kerri Bradford design, though I didn't use her "jingle all the way" phrase. (I bought it but couldn't figure out how to get it transferred to my Sihouette Cameo). I just wrote my own phrase with one of the fonts on my Silhouette. Here's the link to Kerri's post: http://www.kerribradford.com/2013/10/20/jingle-all-the-way/
