Friday wow already. Only 40 days left of 2008. Where has the time gone. The weather here is cold today. Not cold enough for snow of course but cold enough I had to carry all my plants in and cover up the big ones again outside. I am sitting here looking out the window and there are gray clouds ontop of the blue sky. You can see patches of pretty blue shining through. I think I am going to start some Christmas presents this morning. Until then I want to show you 2 cards I did this week. First I did my Thanksgiving Cards.
My Recipe was:
Stamp Set: Stampin Up Harvest Home
Paper: SU Cardstock Very Vanilla, Garden Green and Really Rust the yellow is from a pattern package from Michaels or Hobby Lobby
Ink: All SU Very Black Close to Cocoa, Chocolate Chip,Really Rust, Summer Sun, Real Red, Mellow Moss, Ruby Red, Pumpkin Pie, and Always Artichoke
Embelishments: Orange Fibers and Black Eyelets.

Next I ran into a Friend yesterday and she asked if I had a Birthday card for a 5 year old made. I told her no but I would go make one for her.
So I thought what would catch the eye of a 5 year old. COLORS!!!! Lots of color..
But it is a boy so no flowers or pretty ribbons so what to do what to do...
Well the great mind ha ha this is what I came up with

My Recipe:
CardStock: All SU Real Red, Only Orange, Yoyo Yellow, Glorious Gren and Ballet Blue
Ink: SU Craft Ink Whisper White
Embelishments: varies buttons
Stamp Set: Happy Brithday from Favorite Teddy Bear

Wow so much has happen and I haven't been able to post it... First we celebrated Gary's birthday last Tuesday. Then Thursday we celebrated our baby girls 18th. Wow she is an adult now. Can't believe how 18 years just flew by so quickly. We celebrated the evening with her grandparents and a dinner at Carrino's Italian Resturant. It was a very nice meal.
Her dad and I got her a pearl necklace.

Something she has been asking for. I don't think at 18 I wanted a pearl necklace. My parents got her a brand new car just a couple of months early

and then as a 2nd gift my mom gave her money to go buy a coach purse. So Friday as soon as she got home from school we went and bought the new coach purse.
I don't have a pciture of it yet. I don't think I can get it out of her hands long enough.
Here are some more pictures from that night.

The day after this lovely eveing I began to get sick. I thought it was just allergies and maybe it started out to be but then I ran fever all weekend and this morning too. And this headache. 3 days now and I thought for sure last night that one side of my head was going to explode. It didn't but I think it wants too.

Before calling it a night I have one more thing to tell you about. I called my dad about 6:50 pm tonight and he said he was going outside (they live in San Antonio about 45- 50 miles south of us) because the space station was going to go over and was coming our way. So we ran outside and at 7:01 pm we watch as the Space Station flew over our house. And at 7:02 it disappeared. I ran in and called my dad and asked if he saw it and he said yes I told him we had too. He said we get another chance at it tomorrow as well. So we will see.
Okay I know my head is fixing to explode so I am going to lay down and watch Jon and Kate plus 8 and try to get some rest.
I do have some cards to post so hopefully tomorrow or Wednesday I will have time to do that.
Have a good evening.

Wow October came and went. It is already November. Lots of Birthdays coming up. My best friend is pregnant with her 4th baby and I am so happy for her. I have been playing with a few different things today. We went to Fredricksburg yesterday just to walk around to get out of the house. We went into the local scrapbook store and there were tons of flowers. I love flowers. I have seen more and more used on pages as well as cards. Well since the budget is not allowing flowers right now I decided to make my own. I made these today using my cricut cartridge George and Basic Shapes. I use Cuttin Up for the letters. Let me know what you think.
