Surgery Update

Hello Everyone!  I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas.  I am just popping in to give you guys a quick update on my husband, Bobby's hip replacement surgery.  The surgery went fine and he is recovering.  He seems to be in a lot of pain but other than that things are great.  Thank you for all the prayers offered for him.  Have a safe and Happy New Year!!!!!

Weekly Wednesday Post

Good Evening!  I'm so happy you stopped in for a visit.  What have you been up to?  Have you finished your Christmas shopping?  Only 5 more days!  Believe it or not, I'm not done yet, I have a few more gifts to go.  

So I've decided I'll be posting just once a week to start off with and see how things go.  And I think I'll try Wednesdays since it's the middle of the week.  Did you notice, I have 17 followers!  I am so super excited!  Thanks to all of you that have become followers!

I only have two cards to share with you this week.  First off, I have another Christmas card to show you. 


 I enjoy coloring so much.  My sweet husband purchased several sets of Spectrum Noir markers for me for Christmas.  Well I got them early so I was able to use them for my fireplace on my card.  

The inside........





For my second card, I created a birthday card................



I used Hero Art stamps for my flowers and I colored them with chalk.  



I hope you enjoyed my cards today.  I won't be back until after the first of the year due to my husband having a hip replacement on the 27th.  Please keep him in your prayers.  

Wishing you a very Merry Christmas 
and a
Happy New Year!!!!!!!!!!!

O' Christmas Tree

Hello Everyone!  I hope you are having a great day!  Today I am posting my first project on my blog.  I fell in love with this Christmas tree and knew I had to make a card with it.  I've been working on Christmas cards for about 3 weeks now and I still have a few more to make.  No two of them are alike.  


For this card, I used the December 25th Cricut cartridge.  My tree was cut at 3 1/2 inches and I put it through my paper crimpper.  I added some stones as ornaments.  My stones and my paper are from Hobby Lobby.  My card is a gatefold card.  My ribbon is from Wal-Mart.  My sentiment is from K Andrew's Winter Wishes.  


On the inside I added some Christmas stickers I picked up from Hobby Lobby!

I want to say thank you to all of you that have become followers and thanks so much for stopping by for a visit!
See ya soon, 
Mary

Here I go!

So my husband and my daughter (Nana of Nana's Scrap Spot) encouraged me to start this blog.  I am completely new to blogging, I'm more of a follower of blogs.  But here I am trying my hand at this.  I'll be posting slowly at first as I learn my way around blogger and hopefully will get better at it.  LOL 

I started paper crafting after going on vacation with my daughter and nieces to Graceland.  I decided I wanted to make a scrapbook.  Well that one scrapbook turned into four scrapbooks of the same trip. LOL  I enjoyed making the scrapbooks so much I couldn't wait to learn more.  I have since then started making cards.  I love stamping and coloring as well as cutting with my Cricut. 

I'm hoping to inspire some as I have been inspired.  Thanks for stopping by my blog today!
