Triple Time, Pop Up, Birthday

Hello again, I am still very busy getting my Thanksgiving craft done and trying to maintain doing other things such as taking care of my home and family and doing school...but I still have to finish my craft plus get a bunch of Christmas cards done too.  Whew, that makes me a bit stressed out thinking about all of this.  Just one thing at a time...priorities. Anyways, my "middle" sister just had her birthday this week, so as you could guess, I made her a card!  LOL  She is a great lady, she has been through a lot in the past few years and is still going through things but has come through this all shining for the Lord.  I hope that through this journey that she has been going through, that she will continue to grow closer to God, and continue to shine for Him.  I am so proud of her!

 Okay, onto the card,  I did this simple triple time stamping card, then got a little bit "fancy" inside and did the pop up of presents.  The inside is fairly easy to do.  Not a lot of time invested into that part at all, and yet it looks like I did! 

I used:
White and Dark Blue Cardstock for the front
Me & My Big Ideas Specialty Cardstock for the inside BG paper
Just Rite Original Grandma's Doilies Stamp Set
Ribbons From My Stash
HB Stamped Sentiment from Hobby Lobby
Ranger Liquid Pearls:  White Opal

Well, thanks for stopping by! 
I hope you have a fantastic day!

2013 Can You Guess What I Am Making This Year???

Hello everyone!  I hope you are all doing well.  It has finally gotten cold here and we have even had a little bit of snow already!  Woohoo!  I LOVE snow and the beauty it brings to the somewhat darker/drab time of year.  Especially with the days/daylight being a lot shorter, a little bit of extra light is wonderful.  My favorite thing is seeing the snow sparkle in the sunlight/moonlight and the snow laying on the trees.  It is soooo beautiful!  Well, with the snow and the cooler temps., it puts me more into the "Holiday" mood, for Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years.  I love this time of year, because it is the time when I get to really craft and play with paper and listen to Christmas music without getting yelled at by my family! 

So, as I told you all, in my last post, I would be sharing a sneak peak,(Picture), of my annual "Thanksgiving Day craft", that I will be sharing with my family, (Aunts and Cousins...).  I have to make a grand total of about 30.  Scary thing is, I think I waited till the last minute with this one.  I am blessed to have the help of my kids this year though.  So that is another clue for you all, as to what I am doing...that even kids, (which mine are not so little anymore) can help with it. 

So any guesses as to what I am making?
  Does anyone what to give it a try?  :-) 
Well, good luck and I hope you have a great day!
