Still trying to get cards out

Hi folks, I am still trying to get some cards out before it gets to late.  I guess today is the last day and anyone who did not get one will get a Happy New Year card.  Last night I felt well enough to sit and make 8 cards with the same pieces of paper.  This was relaxing and fun.  I'd have to say I got my scrap on and enjoyed it. Here are a few of them.  You all have a wonderful Christmas Holiday.

Robert Jackson Color/Inspiration Challenge

Hello and Happy Holidays everyone.  Sorry I have been MIA, but it has been a very busy December for me.  After my moms wonderful birthday, I was busy making 50 Christmas cards with some of my scrappy friends.  We took these along with candy canes and cookies to the Senior Center my mom attends on Tuesday.  Wednesday I volunteered to entertain the children of Police Officers while they had their holiday party.  Now I have a darn head cold I need to work on.  Anyway, I am glad I can finally update my post so folks will not get bored looking at the same old thing.  Over at Scraps of Color their is a Robert Jackson color/inspiration challenge going on until 12/22.  I made one card a Thank you for a friends mother who is just too kind to me.  She totally believes in Random acts of kindness.  I thank you for blessing my blog and if I do not get back here before Christmas, have a good one.  Oh I apologize for my photos.  I got a new scanner and it is not as clear as my last one.

Hi everyone, just me back with what I have been doing this last week.  My mother's birthday is December 8th (so is Tiare Classygirl Smith's).  Got a big surprise going for her.  My older step brother and sister are coming in from California tomorrow along with my baby brother from Chicago and his daughter from Atlanta.  Friday night my sister in law, niece, nephew and niece's boyfriend are in from Chicago. My brother Robert and his wife Edith get in from LA near midnight.   The surprise was gonna be a dinner on Saturday, but since everyone will be here, we are gonna start Thursday. Her biggest surprise will be her brother and sister coming in on Saturday from Los Angeles.  I love family reunions however I can get them.
Ok, so on to my projects.  I wanted to make a "thank you" for those who attended my moms celebration.  I came up with this paper bag card.  It has a pocket on the left side which I am gonna insert a wallet size photo of my mom.  There is also a tag inside the right pocket of the paper bag Thanking everyone for coming.  25 of these were made with a image of her by Robert Jackson.

Of course I had to make my card to her with this same image of her.  I cut the base of my card with my Silhouette.  A matching envelope was made with my Envelope punch board.  Sending a shout out to all my SOC sistahs and Tucson scrap buddies who were kind enough to send my mom cards.  Thank you all and know you are appreciated.

Cards for G

 Boy, I have been extremely busy these last couple of weeks.  Last week the annual Holiday Crop and this week and am busy making something for my mom's85th birthday.  I could not get to everything I wanted or had to do, but I did take some time to make a couple of cards for a lady who requested and Anniversary card and a birthday card for her mom.  She did request another one, but I think I am over extended this week.  Got family coming in for mom's birthday and I can not let them catch me with my living room looking like a craft room.  Hopefully it will be back in order before they get here.  You all have a blessed rest of the day and I will see you soon.
