Christmas Card – “Believe”

I made this Christmas Card for my Scrappy Girls group in September.
The card on the left is the first group of cards I made for the girls.
I just kept feeling like something was missing from the card, even after we met.
When I started putting stamps away from making the card,
I notice that the CTMH stamp set I was using had a single snowflake stamp
that matched perfectly in the snowflake punch I used for the center
of the big MFT snowflake die.  Ta da – that was what it needed.

002 003 004 005I love this little fun Stampin Up Stamp sentiment I used on the inside.
006Thanks for sharing in my project that came together after the fact.
Do you ever have a project like that?
Just needs a little something else? What do you do?

Once a month I get together with my Scrappy Friends, we call ourselves the “Scrappy Girls”.  This is the card I shared as a make n take.  I have been in a rut for the past couple months, trying to find my creative mojo.  I went to Pinterest for some inspiration and found it. I can add Pinterest to my thankful list.

Funky Halloween II

Good Day Scrappy Friends!
Here is a Halloween card I made to share with the
“Best Scrappy Friends”!

Lady Elephant 003
I gather once a month with a group of ladies,

we call ourselves the “Scrappy Girls”.
We exchange cards, do make n’ takes, share scrappy tips,
we enjoy food, drinks, and each other’s company.
Lots of laughter abounds this group, along with
many conversations going on at once – LOL!

As many of you know, I am my dear hubby’s full time care giver.
He has been having a rough time here lately.
My Dear Scrappy Friends, have helped out by spoiling him
with wonderful desserts.  My Brad, has a sweet tooth.
Thank you Dear Friends!!!

I used Ai Funky Halloween stamp for this card.

Thanks for sharing some scrappy moments with me!

Halloween Make ‘n Takes

When I gather with my Scrapy Girlfriends, someone usually brings a make ‘n take.  We have a blast when we are creating together –  pink ATG rolling, scissors snipping, ink pads snapping, stamps pounding, punches clicking, and laughs flowing
– music to my ears!!!

Crystal shared these make ‘n takes.

Helen shared this card.

Have a safe Halloween Day.
Please continue to pray for those living in the aftermath of “Sandy”.

Blessings & Prayers – Rhonda <><

Scrappy Girls August Gathering – Recipe Cards

Once a month, I gather with The Scrappy Girls.  At the August gathering, we exchanged recipe cards. and brought the food on the recipe card with us.  This past month we had a tasty gathering – yum, yum, yum!  The food was delicious, the company was fun, and the girls out did themselves on the recipe cards.










I am hoping to show my recipe book in a couple of weeks.  It is on my to-do-list.  Thanks for sharing your time with me.

Blessings and Prayers – Rhonda <><
