What Day is it?

I know today is almost over but somehow I lost track of my days this week.  I think it was because the staff and students had Monday off for one of the Jewish holidays and although I (and the rest of the 12 month employees) had to work that day, when they came back on Tuesday it felt like a Monday.  

I knew that my son and daughter-in-law's anniversary was Friday so I prioritized their card knowing that it would have to be mailed by Wednesday to get to them in time.  

And I had my Jingle Belles card all planned out and started even, thinking when I came home from work on Tuesday that it was Monday, so I had 2 more days to finish it and get it posted before the deadline.  Only this morning, the two days later, when I woke up and realized that today was actually Thursday and not Wednesday I was pretty annoyed at myself for not posting this by 6 last night because it was done.  

The theme was "bells" and that is a bell sewn onto the makeshift ribbon hat that I created for this die cut snowman.  I used an embossing folder that looks like falling snow and highlighted those raised dots with a glitter gel pen.  The snowman is created from 3 of those swirly dies.  The buttons are actually button brads.  

Gathering some ribbons with some quick stitches I was able to create a hat and scarf.  Oh Jingle Belles, I'm so sorry that I missed posting this.  But I am glad that I got another Christmas card done.

Monday afternoon I also worked on a couple other quick cards.  Here is one of them using a Unity Stamp on a 4x4 card.  I added the orange glitter ribbon with the brown glitter ribbon bow.  

I like that 4x4 size and I think I might concentrate on creating some more of these.  


  1. Gorgeous set of cards Lorraine, very clever designs in all of them.

  3. What a lovely sea-themed card for your son and daughter-in-law. That wavy background is beautiful, and I'm still looking at the shells thinking they look almost real.
    The snowman hat is brilliant!
