Merry and Meow-y Christmas

Christmas is a time for so many things - including family and friends.  It's also time for hubby in my house!  I think Jim is a little tired of seeing my rear end sitting at the computer or craft desk all day long so I'm going to be taking a short break for the next week or so from posting, commenting, and even a little of the computer.  I may even have to re-introduce myself to him!  Of course after a while he's probably going to tell me to get back on the computer and back to card making!  LOL!


My first card was completed with a Hero Arts image and SU sentiment - all embossed in gold.  The second one card shows another one of those cute, cute images from Deedee's Digi's!  Be sure and check out Deedee's for not only the wonderful images but also for the progression challenge that is going on this month.

Hope everyone has a wonderful holiday and Christmas.  I'll be back before you know it and you may not even know I'm missing. 

Thanks for stopping by.........and Merry Christmas!
Lynn

Lynn, your first card is amazingly gorgeous. Simply Stated and a class act. Your second card is cute as a button. The papers go great with the image. Enjoy your time getting to know your Hubby again. LOL Will miss you but see you when you get back. I don't think I'll be on much this coming week either. Have fun.

This is so very cute! I am going to have to "steal" the effect you used on the ribbon/button placement!

Enjoy the holidays! Say hello to your hubby! So...making cards isn't what we should be doing? What? Cleaning? Cooking? Shopping? Darn!!! Merry Christmas Lynn! Dream of a white Christmas!

Elegant CAS tree in gold - very pretty! And I love the cute festive kitty! That sentiment is adorable! Would you believe I don't have this set from Deedee's! I think I have all the other kitty sets! Hope you have a good break, Lynn. I'm going to be doing the same thing in January, if not before. Merry Christmas!

Anne Temple said...

Love both of these. The first is so elegant looking with all the gold and you know I love the second one - it definitely brought a smile to my face :-). Enjoy your time with your family (human and 4 legged).

These are both beautiful Lynn. I love the gold embossing on white, and the kitty on the second card is just adorable! Enjoy your blogging break and have a Merry Christmas!

This golden tree is simply classic & elegant. Love this image. Adorable DeeDee's kitty dressed in antlers too. Enjoy your little break from blogging and you & Jim have a wonderful holiday. Come January, I'm going to have to do the same thing. My craft area needs some very serious attention! Hugs, TFS & Merry, Merry.

Some of us will miss you no matter that you posted two days in a row and two cards in one day! :-D But since I'm going to be traveling over the next 2 weeks and will be somewhat MIA myself, I'll forgive you. Love the elegant gold Christmas tree and nothing is cuter than Deedee's felines. Well done on both of these cards. Now, go hug Jim, give Rambo a pat, and you might even do something loving for that "worthless cat" !! Merry Christmas, my friend.

Becca Cruger said...

I hope you have some great quality time with your husband! I adore that simple gold-embossed tree... STUNNING. And the cat card had me laughing. I always like a good pun.

Love the elegance of the first card and the delight of the second! I think our hubbies would all be glad to see us sitting at the computer less. I know mine would. Enjoy the holidays!

The first card is so elegant and simply stunning in gold & white. I love the little kitty on the 2nd card too, and that striped dsp looks perfect with that fun image!

Brenda said...

Your first card is gorgeous Lynn, I love the gold embossing!! Your second are is just darling and oh so cute! I do love DeeDee's digi's but I've got to use all the ones I bought! One day I will get better at using them. My problem is that I don't know what size to size them to. I either print them to big or to small, so frustrating. lol You have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy Healthy New Year Lynn!!! See you later and yes you will be missed! Hugs, Brenda

I've got to laugh because I swear we really are married to the same guy! It usually takes hubby about 2 days to say "um, don't you have some cards to make or something??"

Both are great! The first one is so elegant, I love that image solo like that.
