Heart Candy Friday & Holiday Cards


Hi everybody. Let's start this weekend right by having some Heart (blog) candy. Up for grabs is the 6x6 Basic Grey paper pad Sultry. To win, just leave a comment on this post with what you're doing this weekend. Subscribers please leave a second comment. Posts will be open until Tuesday and I will post the winner on Wednesday.
I'm going to Perris, California for "A Day Out with Thomas." We get to ride a real life "Thomas" train and they have other activities for the kids too. My little two year old is going to go nuts! Lily is spending the day with my mom so she'll be spoiled rotten. The only problem is our train leaves early so we have to get up at like 5:00 and leave the house by 6:00. Perris is a couple of hours away! Just as long as there is a Starbucks on the way I'll be fine!

Here are a couple of cards made with my card kit. The top is a stamp from Lockhart stamps, white embossed and just an easy card.



This card is easy too, I used the snowflakes and sentiment from MFT, Baby It's Cold Outside. I hope you all have a great day!

Pin It Now!

That snowman card is adorable! This weekend, I'm going home to get my hair trial done for my wedding in 5 weeks. I'll also get to see my niece and nephew which is always fantastic :)

Cute, cute cards! Let's see...football playoff game tonight and my sister should come into town about midnight, so I'll be staying up to welcome her. Shopping tomorrow morning at an outlet mall...something special with lots of chances to win I guess. I haven't done that before. Then visiting with my sister and a big family breakfast Sunday before she leaves. She's coming to get the creation I've been working on that I have just posted on my blog for guesses as to what it is.

Those cards are so nice - very elegant! This weekend (if I can ever get home from Phoenix - stuck in the airport for now) I plan to go to our fall sail club banquet on Sat. night and spend some time with the grandkids and if I'm lucky - I'll actually get a chance to do some creating. Drawing my 10k blog candy winner on Sunday so if you haven't left me a comment you should head over and leave me one! Have fun on the train! ~chris

Sounds like such a fun weekend. I hear ya about Starbucks--they always help the day get started. Thanks for the heart candy chance--love the paper you are offering. My weekend will be spent waiting by the phone. My dd is in hospital with her first, (a miracle child) they are trying to stop contractions, etc. The dr wants her to go at least another 5 weeks.

Fab cards Cindy! Well it's actually Sat now here in Australia and awhile ago my family and I went out to see a friend whom I've never seen for 10yrs! She's from Houston USA and they're just here for their honeymoon (she just got married recently) It was a very memorable reunion. And tomorrow, we'll be attending my niece's 5th birthday party in the afternoon.

Thanks for the blog candy offer! God bless you!

I have to go in to work for a few hours on Sat, but after that I am working on Chistmas cards! I just bought some paper from the LSS and I can't wait to use it. On Sun I am going to a local pottery painting store to work on Holiday gifts.
