CASology #76 and Seize the Birthday

My first card in a couple of weeks.  My granddaughter will be turning 13 on December 29th.  How did that happen?  She will be here with her sisters tomorrow so we will celebrate with lunch at Red Robin.  She will be bugging us the minute she gets here to open presents as if Christmas wasn't enough.
I am entering in two challenges:
CASology which you can access Here
and Seize the Birthday which you can access Here
PTI's Balloon Bash and Wishes Come True in Aqua Mist
Memento's Grape Jelly and Color Box Pinkolicious
Just spent about an hour and a half on the phone with my BFF's daughter trying to figure out why I kept getting error messages when trying to post my cards.  She got it to work, so thanks so much Lacey.  So frustrating when it was working the last time you posted something and then when you go to post again it doesn't work.  Don't think I did anything.  Knowingly, anyway.  LOL...

I got the Framed Window from my BFF, Colleen for Christmas.  We opened our gifts over Skype, which was so fun.  I don't know the brand of the window, but I love it.  I have been wanting one for quite awhile.
Well, I just missed this challenge.  It's closed. Dang.....

MIM #144 - Heat Embossing Vellum

I was finally able to get into my craft room and make a card for MIM  which you can access Here 
Pti's Polka Dot Parade #9 in Pure Poppy and Snowflake Die
Embossed in Zing Red and Leaf
Miscellaneous card stock from JoAnn's or Michael's behind the vellum.
It was great to get in my craft room and make a card.  It's been a week or so.  Been busy with parties with work friends, and Sorority friends.  Tonight my cousins are coming for dinner.  We used to do a progressive day, starting about 9:00 in the morning at one house and then to another for lunch, and finally one last one for dinner.  It was a full day of eating, talking and laughing. This was our way of getting to see each others decorated homes.  Two or three years ago we decided we would just do a potluck and visit at one house.  I guess we are getting old and didn't want to spend the day driving.  It's more relaxing.

I actually decided to make a trial card which I rarely do and often waste good card stock.  This time I made the card and just used the black to see how the placement would look and I really liked how the black looked so decided to use it.  I love this old fashion Santa and Sleigh.
Gosh it's been several days since I have made any cards and I have really missed it.
Last weekend my BFF, Colleen you all know her (One Smile Lifts a Spirit) was up in Seattle for a Memorial Service for a relative and got to spend 4 days with me.  So much fun to be together.  She made lots of tags and I finished up a post it notes project for my Sorority Sisters and past Co-Workers.  Not a lot of stamping time but lots of talking and laughter.  Love you my friend.
