Hi Friends,

I can not believe I finally got a chance to do a MOJO Monday early on Monday. So Here it is I just love these skinny cards. This one is 3.5 x 5.5 and all the layers are so much fun I used Verve
Wings of Love and small phrases sentiment stamps the sequins are from Verve Holiday collection, I picked the red out which work great for Valentines, which is just around the corner. You know how these Holidays sneak up on you.



MOJO

Here is my take on the sketch...



I also used CTMH Cranberry ink for the heart and Versamark onyx black for the sentiment. The designer papers are from American Crafts XoXo


Have a blessed day, Diana

Good Morning Friends,

I have the big push right now to get stuff ready for donations, the end of the year, but I still wanted to get some projects done. While the hubs is off to the gym I am going to try and get some STUFF ready.

I treated myself to 5 personal training sessions at the gym - Merry Christmas to me. I start tomorrow. Why wait until the New Year. I need to get that sugar out of my system now. I have belonged to a gym almost my whole life and can't imagine not going. However, I usually cut back the first few weeks of the new year, I know that sounds odd to some of you, but there are just too many people there for the first 6 weeks because they have all made New Years resolutions to get fit and that usually lasts about 6 weeks.
Everyone can use a little inspiration, so that is why I created this card.
The stampers select white cardstock is hand stamped with avocado and terra cotta using ruby reprise stamp set from PTI. The sentiment is in chocolate and classic craft and the stamp set is little inspirations( it is fairly new to me and I have never used this particular sentiment.. The card base is Classic kraft I love how this came out.

CLICK HERE for the Elf Antics linky party




Hi Friends,

A couple of weeks ago Hope left a pickle on a friends Christmas tree. It is just something she does when no one is looking.

What an exciting day today. I told you Hope is staying for awhile. We went to church this morning , and after the service Hope wanted to say Hi to Pastor Mark because she met him last year. They have something in common and it is the she has the red outfit and the red hair and so does he.
Check it out.


She also got to meet three of my friends Gina, Paula and Norma (left to right)

After breakfast, we were driving home and happen to spot Jerry Rice on the 8th green



 I was pretty pleased with these shots, It was with my old point and shoot with a quick stop and while driving.


 I did not have the heart to jump out of the car and interrupt some one's golf game just for an autograph.  He is that nice of a person that he would do it, but I think the shot was good enough. He comes here about 2x a year to golf.

 We needed gas in the car and Hope wanted to go along because she had never seen a gas station.


Now we are home and I am getting the visits in.


Have a blessed day Diana

Hi Friends,

I decided to have Hope stay around a little longer . She has a lot more to share from the past few weeks, but it has been so busy around here, we did not have time to post everything we did. We will try to get it all posted before the end of the year.


She liked the ribbon from one of the gifts that arrived and added it to her hat . She also got a cute necklace from a "Friend" and she is donning her Christmas skirt.

Thank you Lisa
Hugs Diana Have a blessed day, Diana

Hi Friends,

Wow was that quick!!!!  Christmas came and went. I love the lingering effects of the LOVE,

Supplies used:
PTI Cardstock:stamper's select vanilla cream
sentiment: a little inspiration, ruby reprise
CI crystal gold embossing powder
silver stickles
CTMH slate and cotton candy  ink

Hope writes "Merry Christmas"

Merry Christmas Friends,

We went to church this morning and then took a drive along west cliff, checking out the ocean.

What a gorgeous day. Then home to open Presents and have a snack before the big feast later.


This is the Santa Cruz Lighthouse that has been turned into a Surfer museum


 It is really clear today and Thank God for all the rain everything is lush and green again and we are off water restrictions. ( Merry Christmas to us)
See you later for more of Hope's and our adventure.
Blessings, Diana

MERRY CHRISTMAS

This was fun seeing these two trying to get a shot of themselves ( would that be called themselvsies??? ) Hope and I helped them out.


My friend Sheryl, Hope and I . The theme of the Women's Christmas tea this year was simple and nature. Hope has some more shots of her with the critters. I will share tomorrow. or the next day.


I promised Hope would pick a winner from yesterday's comments and it is...

Hi Everyone,

I am sure you are all very busy running around trying to get last minute gifts.  My tablet bit the dust, so I guess I will be getting myself a Christmas present. Any suggestions????????? I would appreciate any thoughts recommendations, or what to stay away from.
Before that happened, Hope and I had been very busy, but the last couple of days she has been staying home while I have been out doing shopping.  Sweet as she is, she holds me back from getting things done.  Hopefully she is at home wrapping gifts or doing the card list.

A couple of weeks ago a quite as few of us ladies helped decorate for the Women's Christmas tea .
Hope found a little animal friend and she was quite content just to sit and be still for awhile



Then she decided to help decorate the trees. Can you see her there on the ladder with my friend Kathleen?





She found some pinecone friends also.




Looks like she thinks she is an ornament. I think she had a pretty good day.


All you have to do is leave a comment on this post. I will announce the winner on the 21st

Have a blessed day, Diana

continued...
onto the rest of the story...

Once in the room Hope was very curious, afterall we did have a little waiting time. She was checking out all the vital statistics instruments


She was very glad to see the nitrile exam gloves, safety measures

Oh no not the needle!!!!!!

Yep the needle, that is why the fashionable designer  Extra large shorts  What do you think? fashionable?
I think these are one size fits all.  They did not fit either of us very well.


She doesn't look too happy, right under the knee, but it will all be for the best.



Not more needles... She was a real trooper, the lady taking the blood was super I think Hope will go back and leave something for her also. Everyone loved her.

Have a blessed day, Diana

Hi Friends,
 All you have to do is CLICK HERE and leave Hope a comment-- She is wondering what you want for Christmas?  We had to make a trip to the Dr.s office today, it really infringed on our crafting time. She really liked the way they had their waiting room decorated. Behind the counter they had stockings for each of the staff. She wants to go back and put something in some of those stockings.  Should I let her?  You can find out more about our Doctor visit when you check back at 8:00 to see if you are the winner.




She loved this poinsettia plant and at first thought it was artificial until she touched it. You will see that later to because she jumped up in it. Then the  nurse came, and she wanted to meet her, I tell you she is more of a chatter box than I am.

Have a blessed day, see you soon. Diana
