Show Me~ Thursday 12/9/10

I got 3 wonderful packages in the mail since last week. First a large box filled with great scrapbooking supplies. It is called a surprise box, you take out what you want and replace with things you do not need!! So many choices, I can't decide!! I also received a Christmas card from my Scorpal yahoo group, and lastly a package of 3 Cottage cutz dies. One of the dies is a snowman that will fit in my snow globe die...I can't wait to try it. Maybe today, my day off!
After I was rushed to combine an image....I finally got it combined, and posted it on my blog...scroll down if you didn't see it...and would like to see a close up. It was a lot of fun...definitely a challenge. I am so sad that this week is my last week as a guest designer for Sassy Cheryl,
Loved it..... Have a great day, JanetlynnePosted by Picasa

Sassy Cheryl's Show Me Thursday!!

Well let me tell you....I was up till 2am yesterday making cards!! I made the card you see with the snowman....double pocket card, inserted a packet of cocoa in one of the pockets.....Thought Brendan would love it, and then I thought HOT CHOCOLATE in Punta Cana, DR where the temps are high 80s?!?.....so I had to search through all my printed digital images for something that was Christmas related, and better suited for Brendan....so down below is my completed card. It is being HAND delivered....just wish it was me doing the delivering!! Yes I have almost every digital image printed..I guess I am afraid I am going to lose my digital files, .....(so just in case, I print them)

Next thing on my
agenda...Christmas Open House on Sunday. We have one every year, so I am not too stressed about it. I always make a scrapbook page, and have our guests sign the page ......... almost done.

Now if you look closely you will see approx 7 little c shape clips. They are kinda like bread bag closures. Well my husband had to remove lights off a prelit tree, and restring with new lights. The lights were attached by these little things....I figure there must be something I can use them for/on!! This is how I accumulate so much stuff!! Cheryl, I will never have a studio like yours...I keep everything....even thought I would never be able to find it when I need it!! Have a Great Day...

Sassy Cheryl Challenge # 38- Coundown to Christmas

The countdown to Christmas to me starts with the Christmas tree. We brought ours down from the attic this weekend, and of course once again a string of lights are out. Every year we re-string lights on our prelit tree!! This year my husband says, "I am not doing it again, I am buying a new tree"....."we need one taller anyway". I came home from work, the most beautiful tree is standing in our window....just waiting for me to fluff the branches, and trim the tree!!!! Thought I would have time Monday, as I was off...but no....How come days off go by so fast?? 39 days until Christmas.... ARE YOU READY?

Join the fun at Sassy Cheryl's Blog

I am thrilled, what a surprise when I received Cheryl's email. Thank you for choosing me to be the guest designer for the next month. Thank you my Sassy friends.. Janetlynne

Note- For those asking and wondering. It has been a month since Brendan left for Punta Cana, Dominican Republic... He is doing well, enjoying his new job.
