A beautiful Sunday to all!

Lots to share on this glorious Sunday! I had a wonderful trip to Raleigh, NC for the ACSI conference. It was a blast to get to hang out with ladies from work. We chatted the entire drive down and back. I laughed so hard at times that I had tears in my eyes. What a great bunch of gals I work with. The conference had some uplifting seminars that were insightful. I look forward to sharing the information I learned in class. Oh how I miss college. Okay, well maybe not the papers I had to write.;-)


Thank you everyone for playing along with the The Cutting Cafe giveaway. I really appreciate every one's kind words and wish I could give everyone a prize. However, there can only be one winner and as
promised through random selection, the winner is....

Today was a beautiful day in Virginia and my family and I took advantage of it by taking a bike ride. It was in the mid 70's today which is perfect for cycling. We rode through the neighborhood looking at the fall leaves on the trees and the ground, the geese waddling by the pond, and spotted a neighbor's Christmas tree light up in the window. I am so not ready for Christmas. It feels like I just hung up my Fall wreath. The days are passing quickly though and soon the holiday season will be here. So I mustered up some enthusiasm and made a Christmas box filled with candy today.







Nicole the owner of Creatively Green sent me a huge box of supplies last week that included Clay Artz which are handmade polymer clay embellishments. The red polka dot mitten is adorable with it's glitter! If you want to see all the cool sets she offers click here.

I used The Cutting Cafe Christmas All Around for the sentiment and the pattern paper is Bo Bunny. I copied a box Nicole had sent me in my package. It was crushed beyond use in delivery so I opened it up and copied it. I found a template on the web here if you want to make one.


Next is my card for sketch #41 at Card Patterns. I seriously have an addiction because every Saturday I check the site as soon as I wake up to see what the new sketch is and how the amazing designers have used it. Yep, I'd say that's definitely an addiction. Anyhow, here's my card:

Most supplies came from Creatively Green . The cardstock is 100% recycled with texture. I love it! I have a 20% off coupon for you too! Just use code AD11 and you will receive 20% off plus a free gift with purchase!
Supplies: Creatively Green cardstock, Chambray Green leaf ribbon, Jar kit ( vintage schoolbook paper, fabric, buttons, and flowers), K & Co. pattern paper, Cloud 9 Sweet Things epoxy sticker, Stampin' Up So Saffron ink, and Target cream ribbon
