Yes I know it may say November 30th, but I'm tired. It's either now or late tomorrow. Here is a sneak peek of a new release image from Sew Many Cards.
This is a week long party with new peeks each day on various blogs of the design team. When you think you know who the character is send an email to Jeri or Sarabeth or Angela on the NING site (Sew Many Cards Social Site). There is a link to the site on the right column of this site. By sending your guess by email, no one else can profit from your detective skills. Look closely and see if you have a guess yet. The answer will be revealed on December 8th.
The second part of this day's party is the chance to win an envelope full of embellishments to add to your cards and layouts. It will include ribbons, brads, and other fun stuff. To enter the drawing you must answer the following three questions and email your answers to the email listed at the top of the page: email@example.com You may enter once a day from December 1st through December 4th. The winner will be notified by December 6th and on the blog on December 8th.
Q#1 Who is the CEO of Purrfect Sentiments?
Q#2 What is the tiger's name from Sew Many Cards?
Q#3 How many years have I been scrapbooking?
email your answers and be sure to visit the other design team members' blogs as listed on the NING site to get other sneak peeks each day. Good luck!! MEOW!!!!!!!
Also tomorrow I will post three questions about Purrfect Sentiments. Email your responses to the address at the top of the blog firstname.lastname@example.org to be entered in a drawing to win an envelope full of embellishments including ribbons, brads, stickers, etc. Deadline will be Friday December 4th at midnight. You may only enter once per day for this drawing.
Finally (and most importantly) Happy Birthday to my daughter, Lauren.

This week's challenge at Sew Many Cards (see link at right) is to use a digi stamp(s) from Angela (SMC) and from Regina (Cutting Cafe) to create your project. Regina has some really nice background digis and wording. The ornaments hanging along the top of the card and the "Magic of Christmas" sign are both from CC. Toga giving the gift to Jaden is SMC of course. Two of my favorite characters.
Hmmmm Two of my favorite characters. They are all my favorites. I like Tayla and Hershey and the Polar Bear (does he have a name Angela??) and Halen and Miki and PJ and....and....and.... I guess I'm just addicted to digistamps. I'm no good at the traditional ones. Take a look at the instructions and give it a try! It is all about trying new things, new talents, new techniques, it is almost New Year.
I have an extra day off (tomorrow) for Thanksgiving. Nice to have the loooooonnnnnngggg weekend. Not doing the Black Friday thing in person at least. May hit some Internet Black Friday sales but no longer up to the pushing and shoving and fighting. I may actually get my Christmas cards addressed. Ha Ha - I do have them made at least. Somehow it is the addressing part I'm hung up on at the moment. I have to put all the address changes into the software before I print labels. Then I have to decide which card is best for which person. I made them all unique so this will take some careful thought.

Seeing the sun for the first sustained time in over a week. Even with leafless trees and brownish water the lake looks pretty with sun reflecting off of it. Getting some birthday cards/gifts together. Lauren (older DD) will be 28 a week from Monday. Am I really old enough to have a 28-yr-old?? Then John (only son, middle kid) will be 27 on 12/2. (Yes, they just missed being Irish twins.) Brett (Lauren's husband) our DSIL will be 36 on 12/4.
I had to include this ATC (Artist Trading Card) I made. I have to remember that not all of the family lives in snow-possible areas anymore. While Dallas may get some snow occasionally, TX isn't known for snowmen and drifts. So I am letting Jaden spread the message while leaning over a multicolored, snowfree wall.
I think sitting out on the screen porch (it is in the low 60s, maybe high 50s) for some fresh air and a nap sounds good. Then lunch and more PLAY!!!!!!

Well, the recalcitrant slide show has stopped spinning, but it appears twice. In the layout it doesn't appear at all. Double the pleasure...double the fun.... with ... If you remember that jingle then you are over 50.
I can't wait to post my creations using the new Friday Freebie from Sew Many Cards that will come out tomorrow. Remember to sign up for the newsletter on that site to get the Friday Freebie. It will no longer be available elsewhere. Hint: it is cuddly, furry and very appropriate for winter. I bet you have as much fun with it as I am. Angela has such great digis.
I need to address Thanksgiving Day cards and mail them out tomorrow. I never used to send Thanksgiving Day cards, but now with card making, I celebrate ALL the holidays. Wonder if Angela will have a groundhog for February??
I got a box from Paper Wishes today. Need to open it up and check my goodies. Most of the order was replacing my favorite items like pearls, Dazzles, etc. Until tomorrow......
