Christmas in July Workshop

On Thursday, I had fun with friends!  Did a little workshop at our new Hobby Lobby,
and this is what we made.  Everyone seemed to have a good time, and
seemed pleased with their cards.  I've heard rumors that some spouses
enjoyed a bit of chocolate, but you know how rumors are...






                           

Saw this layout on Pinterest and had to case it :)

Since this was a 'Christmas in July' workshop, I also baked Christmas cookies, 
white chocolate covered pretzels, and had Ghirardelli goodies and mints at every seat.

I did have the courtesy and forethought to take all calories out first!!!

Thanks for stopping by!

Hugs and blessings,

Congratulations!

It's Friday - woohoo!

Should be a pretty easy weekend here - hope yours is relaxing!

I have a very simple card to share today, using products from Crafter's Companion.
I love these beautiful Sara Davies products!

The sentiment was stamped where I thought I wanted it, and after that, it was just a 
matter of adhering different width of paper strips, adding a flower and some pearls!
I spritzed the back of the flower and leaves with a bit of water, in order to form them
a bit.  I'm pretty happy with this one! Hope you like it :) 



Here are the products that I used:



Have a great weekend, and thanks for stopping by today!

Sunday School Treats

Hi there!

We have a Sunday School class at church that consists of the sweetest ladies ever.

Once in a while, they come into class to find a wee surprise on their table.
They are so appreciative, and it's fun doing something nice for them. 

Stan and I were married in this church 43+ years ago, and most of these ladies were members 
of the church way back then, and we love and respect them so much!

Here's what they found on their table on Sunday:




Hope you're having a good week so far.
It's a WONDERFUL week here!  Our daughter and family, who have been 3+ years in Germany,
have touched down in the US!  Their next assignment is in the DC area, so we can drive or fly
out to see them anytime we like (and are invited!!!).  Anyway, you can imagine the
goofy happy dancing going on here!

Take care, and keep smiling,

Patti J.

Vintage Vacation with TLC Blog Hop

Hello, and welcome to the Vintage Vacation with TLC Blog Hop!

It's summertime, and what fun it is to take a vacation with our family or friends!


      The TLC owner, Paulette, has given us all some fun vintage digi images to create with today.


Here's what I created:

This first photo shows 5" x 7" card, ready to slide into envelope.

Here's another view, of the easel card opened, and ready to display...

One more view - a close up of the uber-fun image!


This fun image reminds me of my childhood. We all crawled into the car, totally filled it with suitcases, food, and family, and drove willy-nilly to someplace new, sometimes exciting, sometimes
not so much!  We had very few vacations, so it was always a treat to get away.

Paulette is SO generous!  I've added this image below, and it's free as a way of
saying thanks for hopping with us!

Each stop along the hop will be using and giving away a different image!
Be sure to leave some nice comments for the team - they've worked hard to bring you a fun hop,
full of free images!

SO....

Now it's time to hop...  hopefully, you arrived here from Jen's blog.
Your next stop on the hop is Shelly's blog - she's got a great project to share with you!

The entire hop order is listed below.  If you get lost along the way, you can
go to the Create with TLC blog, and see what you've missed.

Keep Calm and Dream Big

Happy Friday!

It's been a pretty stormy week here - lots of damage to trees, local businesses, etc.
Luckily, so far, we have been pretty lucky.  Wednesday night, the Mr. spent
most of the night sleeping in his truck on a job site, trying to keep power going,
but we've been lucky at home.

I have a pretty card to share today, using products from Crafter's Companion.
I love this beautiful tiger - what an amazing animal, right?


 Here is a close up of his gorgeous eyes, with some glossy accents on them.

Here are the products that I used:


Glossy accents, adhesive, foam dots from my stash
  
Have a great weekend, and thanks for stopping by today!
