Merry Christmas



Happy Monday my friends.  We had a busy but very fun weekend celebrating Jonathon's birthday. Friday night it was dinner and the high school play. Saturday we went out to see a band that we all like called Houndmouth.  Their show was incredible.  Unfortunately after the show Jonathon came down with a touch of the stomach flu.  Not very fun but he was feeling better yesterday.

We (and I say we lightly because Pat has done most of the heavy lifting) have been redecorating a few of our rooms. The family room is almost done (just needs a little paint touch up) and our bedroom is almost done. It's so nice to have new furniture, fresh paint and fresh decorations. Nothing like family coming in town to push the redecorating along!

This card is one more to add to the stash.  I'll be using the same set on Wednesday with a totally different feel to the card.

  4. Oh, I just love the way you're adding a strip of colour down the sides! I need to start remembering that! Belated birthday wishes to Jonathon! I missed it! It's report card time and they've given us a new, user unfriendly program to learn and work with :(

  8. Love the creme colour, the striped edge and the sentiment! It's such a warm and modern looking card!
    Enjoy your 'new' home; good that it takes some time before you get used to all the new elements! That means you really 'see' and enjoy it all a long time.... :) Hugs, Gerrina
