I'm here early this morning because the handy man is coming to fix the light fixture, make the kitchen sink stop leaking and to light my fire. Oh no that's not right. He's coming to light the fireplace. When our new stove was installed, the plumber was checking the gas and told me you don't have to keep that pilot lit all summer in the fireplace, so he turned off the gas. Then when he went to show me how to relight it, it wouldn't come back on! I'm hoping he can fix that as we always have a fire on Christmas.

Today is another first for me. I printed Olaf from the internet and made a card for my grandson. It is simple, just the picture and I added some stickles on his side. I tried little black buttons over his chest and tummy but it just didn't look right, so he is just plain. How easy and I love how it turned out. Just printed it, trimmed it, mounted on white cardstock and then the dark blue paper.  I think I could learn to do digital.

I think it's okay to say my beautiful inspiration card from my previous post is from Darnell. She makes the best cards and is so much fun. If you don't know her, go visit http://www.djkardkreations.com/. I promise you will love her blog and have a laugh everytime you visit.

Be kind to one another.

  3. Oh I hope you got all the fix-its done! Love your digi Olaf, and it's much easier to store digis! I only know how to do 'simple' with them, but I've read that you can even use embossing powders on them. I tried to be restrained at SnS, but I did get some flocking powders, glitters & EP's - they were having a sale. But I was pretty good - for me! Your grandson will just love this cute card. You're sure rocking those cards for the grands! Merry Christmas, Hugs

I hope you were able to get the man to fix all your brokens for you, so that you can cross some things off the list. Thank you for the sweet shout out!
