Now I am able to get back in the swing of things and just make cards for fun, and get back to being a punchkateer! Yippie!
P.S. Double Nickels - I have 2 1/2 year b/f I reach that!!

Breezing through to wish you all a Happy New Year. Had a wonderful Christmas & the kids have all headed back to their homes again. Off to enjoy a New Year's Eve fondue with my sister's family. We've fondued on NYE for about 5 years now - always great fun.

Happy New Year one and all!!

Happy New Year to everyone too. Not much going on here. I'll stay up till midnight if I can, then go nighty night. How boring!! But, sometimes boring can be good. It's better than trauma, right???? Love you guys!

Good morning...and Happy New Year! I stayed up to read last night...not because of new year, but because I have been really sick and didn't want to keep my hubby awake again. I was planning to go to game night at church...that's our usual fun time for NYE, but no way was I venturing out in the COLD.

So, guess what? No, think I'll let you guess.

Hint...check out my siggy and my avatar...

Happy New Year! 've been sick too, Diane...a cold. Just miserable. I rang in the New Year watching three episodes of Criminal Minds. Didn't even watch the ball drop in NYC.

Diane, I like the sig. Are you a hostess for VSN? I have to confess I have never been involved in that and don't really know what is happening there. I would like to understand it better if you care to explain.

Sorry to hear that some of our Punchiez are under the weather. Not the way to ring in the New Year...

Our fondue last night was great fun. I learned that Cranium can be a dangerous game though - it was my turn to act out one of the clues and, well, that funny popping noise in my knee wasn't a good thing. The phrase was "Don't rock the boat" and I was just 'climbing out of my boat' when my knee decided it didn't like the game. So, ice and rest and a dip in the hot tub might be about all I accomplish today.

Cathleen - so good to see you popping in here again. Missed you while you played in the dirt but your creations were amazing!! Sorry I missed getting a bd card off to you. I've been a bit behind in that regard what with being away.

Pamzi - yup, double-nickels in 2013 for me too. But my knee feels much older than that at the moment.

Later Punchiez! RYPH! Take care all.

I just came by to check in...I can't do one today, either. But, I will tomorrow or Tuesday. I have some other important work I have to take care of today....but it is boring. UGH!!

Congrats, Marisa!

Pamzi, this makes me think of our back to back FS days....just a bit over a year ago. It was funny how that happened that way.

Diane, thanks for the VSN info. I don't know if I could get a card made in 45 minutes. LOL Sounds like fun, though.

Sure you can! If I can, then you can too!

Here's a sample challenge from last time:

Well ladies (and gents) it's 9 o'clock and time for you to all get dressed up to the NINES!!! I love it when I have a special occasion to go to which means I can wear a posh frock! Doesn't it just make you feel so good when you wear fabulous clothes? And now's the time to make your card look good too.

This challenge is all about dressing your card up in rich, elegant colours, think deep reds, blues, purples and greens with a touch of metallics for your jewellery, so add a bit of gold, silver or bronze.

To really dress your card up to the nines you need to add some luxurious embellishments too, so I want to see satins, velvets, silk, lace and so on. You might even want to add an extra shimmer using some shimmer paint or glimmer mist.

I can't wait to see all the posh frock cards in the gallery!


The one thing I learned to do is to not make incredibly ornate cards. Here's what I made for that challenge:

MamaRitzi....congratulations, my friend for being the FS!!! Kudos to you!!!! I'll try to get a card made up within the next couple of days.

Spent the day with two of my DS's and DDIL at stepdaughters and hubbies. They are about 1 1/2 hours from us. Had fun, though I'm under the weather some with a cold...UGH! Sore throat...hurts to swallow. Waaaahhhhh....waaaahhhhh!!!! LOL!

Have a great evening, my friends!

Kookzi, I have had the same thing....a bad cold, sore throat, just all the nasty symptoms. I think I got it from my 5 month old DGD while kissing and loving on her during Christmas. Oh, I guess it was worth it...there was no stopping me. LOL

Diane, that card was beautiful, but you can always make the most gorgeous one layer cards.
I'm sure I won't be playing this time around. You know, I haven't been feeling well with this cold and to make matters worse, I was knee deep...no, neck deep in paperwork today. What a miserable day I've had. But, it had to be done and now I'm glad it is almost finished.

I know you'll have a blast, though. Can't wait to see your creations.

Thanks, Heather It was a fabulous way to start 2011 and your case was gorgeous! Cranium is a great game but sorry to hear your knee didn't agree! Hopping it is all better now or at least well on the way to recovery! Your cheed fondue sounded wonderful. Used to have those when I was living in Holland the year I worked for Billy Graham Association. Over the lips and straight to the hips I say LOL!

Midnight is over rated, Pamzi!! I can count the number of times I've stayed up on my hands. We used to have a cabin at Whister (oh sigh...) and used to go to bed early on NYE so we could be up and at the ski lifts first thing on NYD. Gives you a fabulous 4 hours of skiing with few crowds on the hills as everyone is sleeping in or hung over. Some of the best skiing days ever when you had a fresh snow to ski on Takes this body forever to recover from a late night - it needs sleep and lots of it - so it isn't worth it most of the time. Yes, boring is good LOL!

Hi All,
I'm certainly better...still a lot of runny nose. Yuck! Kookzi, I hate to hear you now have laryngitits. I used to have allergies every Spring and Fall and up until about 2-3 years ago, I always had laryngitis with it...couldn't talk about a whisper. No fun!

ALERT! ALERT! I just wanted to alert everyone that FRUITFLAKEZ now has a blog called FRUITCAKEZ SECRETZ. Of course, no one can find it. I'm going to put Debzi, our defective detective on the case. Maybe she can sniff it out because I can only imagine what we'll all find there.
Fruitcake told me about this blog on my last upload on SCS when she commented. So, I am not making it up. LOL

No double nickels here yet, but that decade will be arriving in 2012. Where does the time go??!! Mind you, age has never been a big factor for me as I never act my age anyway LOL! Too much in life to be enjoyed

Last but not least, a big thank you to all of you who have CASEd a card! I have been blown away by everyone's creations and am still floating up in the clouds. Typing speed is back up to snuff now too as lots of comments to leave!

HAPPY NEW YEAR to everyone and look forward to getting back in to the groove again (((hugzzzzzz)))

I just caught a glimpse of something when I received my notice that a post was made to our thread. Heather, did you work for the Billy Graham Assn. or was that you, Marisa? What a fab job that sounds like.

That was MamaRitzi... And it does sound like it would have been a great experience!

That was me, Benzi. I worked for the organization twice. Over the summer when they had the crusade in Vancouver in 1985 and then spent a year in Holland working for the association during Amsterdam '86 which was a conference for itinerant evangelists from all over the world. It was an absolutely amazing year. Got the call for an interview the day after I graduated from university, got a call back a week later saying I was hired, and a week after that I was on a plan to Holland! Worked with many amazing people in the office and enjoyed living overseas for a year. Had great fun:
- Hopping a night train with friends on a Friday night and waking up Saturday morning in Munich or the likes
- road trips to Brussels for the day to buy chocolate (the Dutch thought we were nuts driving so far in one day as a 30 minute commute is a long one for them)
- New Years in Austria skiing
- Biking all over the place
- Skating on the canals and lakes
- Going to the Mediterranean for a vacation with four girlfriends
- Buying flowers CHEAP (there were kiosks everywhere with flowers)
- Having Billy himself speak a chapel three times over the year as well as attending our staff retreat
- Crying when the first group arrived after a year of prep work
- Having the semi trailer trucks look like small Tonka toys when they were IN the RAI (the conference center we used) as the RAI is HUGE!
- Feeding 8000 people with airplane meals (they stayed warm and were easy to serve)
- Sharing a meal and sometimes being able to speak with an evangelist from somewhere in the world (if they spoke English)
- Hearing amazing stories of how God brought some of the evangelists into contact with a BGEA application for the conference
- Having the African males go into the female washroom because they wear long tunics and the picture icons on the bathrooms had the female ones looking more like them so they went in (needless to say they came down and words in many languages replaced them LOL!)
- Participants refusing to go into the elevator because the people in them disappeared (they saw them go in, the doors would close and when the doors opened again they would be gone). Makes perfect sense to me if you have never seen an elevator before
- sharing communion with 8000 evangelists on the last day of the conference (tears streaming down my face as it was a taste of what heaven will be like)
- Hearing some amazing speakers (Billy Graham, Ravi Zacharias, BG daughter and others)
- the list goes on and on

Can you tell I had an amazing year LOL! It is definitely one of the best of my life!! Many amazing memories and I still keep in touch with some of the people I worked with

Fruitcake told me about this blog on my last upload on SCS when she commented. So, I am not making it up. LOL

What happenz at Fruitcakez Zecretz Blog Stayz at Fruiflakez Zecretz Blog. You will never know what I'm saying about you all!! LOL!! So, there Benzi. Even our Agent 9999 will nevah find the zecret blog!!

NEWS FLASH: All of us Punchkateerz have been put to shame. Pat Smethers linked me to this upload by BertLady. She punched so many MS branches, she's probably disappeared by now with her weight loss.

Look and weep:

MMTPT125 Santa, is that You? by Bertlady - Cards and Paper Crafts at Splitcoaststampers

We really must step up our punch tallys so as to not humiliated by non-Punchkateer stampers!! I've been bad on my tally count lately. Gotta put on my punchin' thinkin' hat.

Of course, you know, I've put all my cards with tons of punches on my secret blog!!! LOL!!

ENJOY everyone and I hope everyone gets well soooooon!!

Marisa, that is just awesome..all the exciting things you did. What an experience of a lifetime. That elevator story is really unimaginable but it is just hard for us to understand as our lives are lived so totally different.
Thanks for filling us in and sharing those interesting details.
