Because I Care and a start on Christmas

The first card is made using the Because I Care hostess stamp set.  It's a really beautfiful set with the hydrangeas.  I also love, love, love the scallop sqaure die.  I borrowed it from my sister's stash and have finally broken down and ordered my own.  I also just ordered the Scallop Oval Frame - it's all about the scallops for me these days!!  The colors are Pear Pizzazz and Early Espresso.

The second card is the start of my creative Christmas process.  I usually end up making quite a few card designs before I find one that I want to use for my own cards this year.  I am also designing the cards for my upcoming Christmas card workshops, so there's alot of Christmas happening in my workshop right now.  The set used here is A Cute Christmas and the paper is Candy Cane Designer series paper along with the Tiny Tags set for the greeting.  Which reminds me.....where on earth did I put the co-ordinating buttons????  I seem to lose things in my workshop and then they all of a sudden appear - kinda like the missing socks from the dryer!

Right now I am enjoying a cup of tea on a rainy afternoon.  We have guests visiting from out of town (so forgive me if I dont' get alot of projects posted this weekend) and she is taking the baby for a walk.  The silence in the house is heavenly and it's so wonderful to actually get to enjoy a cup of tea that hasn't gone cold and taken 3 rounds in the microwave only to be forgotten and not found until dinnertime!!

Enjoy your weekend....
