Week 7

Hello Everyone,
   Can you believe that Thanksgiving is almost here?  I hope you all have a wonderful and safe Thanksgiving and get to eat lots of turkey. 
   I managed to catch the 7th Harry potter this weekend  and it was awesome!  I really enjoyed it. My hubby on the other hand isn't really a harry Potter fan but has been to all of the movies. He liked it but he's not into it like my son K.J. and I are. We got tickets  early because we were afraid it would be packed and there is nothing worse than having to sit in a movie theater in the first front rows. We went in about a half hour early and there were quite a few people already there. We didn't end up in the front rows we were somewhere in the middle, which was o.k.
   Continuing on with the 12 weeks of Christmas, I finally got my 7th week of Christmas card done. Here it is.
Stamps: Bells and Boughs
Inks: Always Artichoke, crumb cake, Early espresso,
Cardstock: Crumb cake, Deck The halls DSP, Very Vanilla,
Accessories: Chantilly Ribbon, Decorative Label Punch, Gold Cord, scallop border trim, Punch, SU sponges. 
Have a good  evening and thanks for dropping by. Til next time.
Happy Thanksgiving  everyone!

Hello Everyone,
   Well here it is Wed, it's the middle of the week for most of you or what they say over the hump day, unfortunately it is the beginning of my week. It wasn't a very good day today everyone's emotions seemed to be running very high .  people ended up crying another group ended up fighting, I think we were all pms sing. lol
   Anybody getting ready for the 7th harry Potter movie? I know I'm looking forward to seeing it. We won't be going until the 2cnd weekend because the first weekend will be way too  cahotic. It will be kind of sad when we come to the very end of this. I was sad when all the books were done and I read them.
    Another note  anybody watching Dancing With The Stars? Last nights results were pretty surprising sort of. I can't believe Brandy and Maks were kicked off. I mean Bristol  has improved a great deal and she has been beautiful but  Brandy shouldn't of been kicked off. This is just an opinion.
  Anyways I have a craft fair or show going on Thurs, here in Leominster and these are my book mark paper clips that I've been working on. my friend and I are hoping to get some new contacts and maybe book a couple of workshops or classes plus we'll be selling some items also. These were a lot of fun to make.
Supplies I used are
various stamp sets from SU : Tiny Teacup, Tart and tangy, Just Buzzin By
Inks: Basic Black, Daffodil Delight, Early Espresso, Real Red.
Cardstock: Daffodil Delight, Baja breeze, DSP Candy Cane, WW,
Accessories: Lg Oval Punch, Scallop Oval Punch, Scallop Circle Punch, 1 3/8 circle punch, 1 3/4 circle Punch, also the owl punch and turned it up side down cut off the ears and made it a penguin, Gingham ribbon and Daffodil Delight taffeta ribbon, Dazzling Diamonds on the wings of the bee, and gold Stickles on the antenae
Thanks for visiting, have a great evening. Til next time.

Hello Everyone,
  Brrr. Its cold and damp out there today. Haven't been feeling up to par recently, I think I'm coming down with a cold. 
  My husband and I went to this beautiful wedding Sat, night. It was in Portsmouth NH. which is about an hour away. The wedding started a 6:30 pm. It was very different from other weddings I've been to. The food was out of this world and the variety was unbelievable. There were 6 different stations of food. One was filet mingon and potatoes,another was just all sorts of salad, then there was a pasta station, a sushi station and a seafood station. needless to say,  that people kept going around to all stations. It was really a fun wedding, the band was excellent  even got my hubby to dance a fast song and one slow song. The wedding cake was 23 Kt. gold. really! I wanted to take a pic but my camera said my memory was used, so I wasn't able to. Sun. I took off from work so we could stay over night. which we ended up not doing.
