Good afternoon, Y'all. I hope and pray this afternoon finds you snuggled up somewhere all cozy and comfy. It is now and has been pretty chilly in "these here parts". At 12:55 pm it is a whopping 44 degrees out side. Now, I do realize that in places, that is a heat wave. But, in the south, there's a lot of complainin' goin' on when the temp drops below 65 degree. gggg In all reality, there's no pleasin' most of us any way, so it doesn't matter what the temp, we will still be complainin'. Do I here an "Amen" from anyone?
An update: It is now 3:07 pm, 38 degrees and "snowin' to beat sixty"! That's right, y'all, you heard me, "it's snowin' in the south"! If you don't like it, just wait a few minutes, there'll be a heat wave comin" down the road. gggg
Ok, enough about the weather. gggg I have been busy as a little bee over the last few days. Working on Christmas Cards! I absolutely love inky, gluey, glittery hands! It means I have been doin' what I enjoy. I have gotten several of my Christmas Cards made. And I must tell you, I am really happy about that. In the process of making the nice cards with the boxes, I also made a few other cards with scraps that I may have tossed had I not had my thinking cap on. So, I will show those to you first.
Then I glittered up my little reindeer cut out and popped him on there. These two are really more like little pictures than they are cards, because on the back side there is an easel. A flat strip about an inch wide attached to the back of the card with wings protruding from each side is what allows it to stand up perfectly.
These next pics are all of the cards, with easels and boxes. They are very time consuming. But, it helped me to take a few weeks to work on all the pieces parts. I have two of the plastic shoe-boxes from the Dollar Tree that I have all the components in. That make putting a card together go pretty quickly.
Well, there you have it y'all. This is what I have been up too for a little while. I still have a few more to go. But, they will go pretty quickly, since I have all the pieces parts ready to go.
If I don't get back on here before Thanksgiving, I pray that each and every one of you have a Happy Thanksgiving and will take the time to thank God for all He has given you. For those of you that are not in the U.S. and celebrating Thanksgiving on Thursday, I do pray that you, too, will take the time to thank God for something in your life. We all have so much to be thankful for every day. I am thankful for Jesus Christ and all that He has done for me. We can never thank Him enough. For some inspirational reading, read Psalm 100. It is just five verses long. But, oooohhh the message in those five verses. Ok, now get to reading, there will be a test later. gggg Happy Thanksgiving, Yall!!!
My favorite quote for Thanksgiving, "Gobble till you Wobble, Y'all"!!!!! hahaha
hugs and blessings, y'all, Patty
