I'm Bummed!

Man oh man am I bummed!!!!
  I just had my husband look at all 10 of my Christmas cards that I've made for this year and he said that maybe someone would like to get them for Christmas but he'd rather send out store bought ones :(
  So, I am a little bit bummed.....This is actually depressing.  Is it just that he's a guy or what?  When I post my cards, I get such lovely comments.  Maybe I should just break down and let him buy some Thomas Kincade cards and send them out.
  Hope everyone else is having a better day than I'm having.

Magnolia Christmas Card #5

Happy Saturday to ya!
  This is a card for the TOMIC Challenge!  I'm in at the last minute!  I can't believe how fast I put this card together.  Well, maybe you can tell lol.  I really liked the sketch that they used and couldn't resist making a card from it.
  I made my own background paper thanks to Jennifer McQuire with the Holiday Card Bootcamp.  I used watercolor paper and Tim Holtz Distress Inks then used my Snowflake embossing folder to press.
  Well, I hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend.  I need to get this posted lol.

Magnolia Christmas Card #4

Hello Everyone!
  I couldn't resist making another one of Caludia Rosa's paper bag cards!  They are so addictive!!
  This one is made from the Little Yellow Bicycle papers and Prima flowers of course.  I'm pleased as puddin' how this one turned out.
  Hope everyone is having a wonderful crafting day!

Magnolia Christmas Card #3

Hello all my crafty friends!
  Today I finished a Magnolia Christmas Card out of a paper bag thanks to Claudia Rosa @ Pretty Pressings who had the instructions and to who I got the idea from, Cathy Lynn from her blog.  Both are beautiful ladies with lots of talent to say the least.  And last but not least, from Sandy Dehond who made the card for her friend Cathy Lynn.  Bless each one of you for inspiring me.
  My daughter saw this card and couldn't believe that it was made from a paper bag.  She asked me who was getting this card and I said that I didn't know.  It was going into the pile to send.  Well lo and behold she has claimed this one as her own lol.
  I made Christmas cards last year that never got sent out.  I was not too happy with them, I thought them plain.  So, I am re purposing some of them and throwing the others out.  I am sad to say that we went out and bought cards last year :(.
   So, this is the inside.  A tag pulls out with a saying and as a family we'll all sign the card.
  I added two tags in the back pocket for pictures I think.

  So, last week my husband asked me if we are buying cards this year and I told him no that I am making them and he just gives me "the look".  I had to chuckle though.  I love my husband.  He is so patient and kind.  Today he even bought me some glittered snowflakes for my cards that I was eye balling.  He asked me if I wanted them and I said "no", but they'd be really cute for my Christmas cards, so he made a grab for them and put them in the buggy.  He is really so sweet.  Plus, I am so ready for Christmas!
  I am feeling so much better these days.  I had my DR's appointment on Friday and he still hasn't cleared me for going back to work.  He says I'm still not ready.  So, I'm still on disability until he clears me.
  I can't wait til I get my Christmas bonus so I can Christmas shop for my kids!  I love the look on their faces when they open up their gifts!  My oldest daughter is a scrapbbooker like me and I know exactly what I'm going to get her and I just can't wait!  My youngest daughter still hasn't given me a wish list so I don't know what I'm going to do and I asked my 16 yr old son what he'd like from Santa and I got a list handed to me instantly!  Lol!  Oh, I do love my kids!
  Well, I better get off of here before I write a book!  I do love having a blog though, it lets me chronicle my thoughts sometimes and I love that.
  Hugs for now,
