Hi Ladies,
Hope everyone is doing well! Yes, I am still lighting those candles for everyone, plus a few others in need right now. Challenge TSC1209 - how about - "Christmas - Bring the Sparklies/Bling." Do a card, tag, anything with a Christmas theme and make it sparkle. Take care, Ladies, and hugs all around!! K.

Ladies,
I found a link to my very favorite Christmas song - it's not for everyone, but here is the link in case you'd like to hear it: Mary Did You Know - Kathy Mattea - YouTube

This is a fabulous song and I love it sung in Kathy Mattea's contralto voice. HOWEVER, last night I heard Rascal Flatts sing this song on a TV special and I was mesmerized! Their harmony was out of this world!

Thanks so much, Kathy, for sharing!

Hey Cuz, I loved that version of "Mary Did You Know?"!! Beautiful! Thanks for the challenge, too!

Greenie, thank you for the "Gratitude" video...just beautiful!! I sent it to all the Secret Sisters at my church.

I woke up at 3 a.m. and just couldn't sleep. I'm so glad though. Look at the two treasures I might have missed!!!

Wendy, thanks for popping in! I bet you've been busy commenting on all those cards made in your honor!!! Congratulations to you, Miss Queen for the Day!!!

Hi all. Tough day today!! Steve's memorial service was today......so hard to say goodbye. After a ton of tears, we are home and awaiting the arrival of my stepson, DIL and baby girl who left last night from Texas and are driving straight through to PA (to us) right now. They hope to get here around midnight or so. I have never seen Nikole so this is a real treat! I'm so excited!

Hugs to all of my sistahs!!! I love you all!!!!!

Prayed for you all today, knowing what you had to go through - I am sure your support helped his family enormously, Lesley, bless your heart!

Excited for the arrival of your family tonight!! Praying for safety!

No, you can still do your card for the challenge. We all have lives that get in the way sometimes. We've had people do their cards after they got back from traveling, and they couldn't get one done until the next one was due. No worries!

Hi Sistahs, I'm late but got my TSC card uploaded today! I couldn't miss two weeks in a row. I was afraid I'd have to sit on the top of da bus with Teri. But I'm sure we would have fun drinking latte's and getting into mischief. I must say she does fine on her own!

Wendy congratulations on Featured Stamper. I will try to get a card made and uploaded soon. I have been so busy I really haven't been making many cards. I have but just my Christmas cards. I usually have them all done b4 Thanksgiving but not this year. I'll have them done next year earlier. I don't like to feel rushed.

CA I love the Coach goodies you got. I'm jealous!!! How is your weather. Any snow yet? We are supposed to get some tomorrow. I don't have to go out in it so I don't mind.

Lesley you have been in my prayers. I knew the service was coming up and was going to be tough for you. Hugs to you.

Everyone else hello. All of the churches in town put their choirs together and do a contada. I have to go get ready. See you ladies later.

Heart hey girls..

Oh ty MRS Boz, as I was going to ask what my mom did, about the time-line,as I have been busy...partly replying to gorgeous cards.I am still so surprised of me being queen, and so glad for you friends...:0)..and last might had to quickly make a card for a friend at work who is leaving before she first planned, but has a 2 year olad as well so needs more time to pack, so it wasnt a christmassy one, and I cant miss this one, if you know me at all...lol...cards with glitter...I might just have a heard time with that one....lol....NOT...lol.
Hope you catch up on sleep tonight too, harsh waking up at 3.
silly filly enjoy the contata..hope it is awesome
hi mom...lol
Leslie...funerals are so hard , but on the other hand it is neat to catch up with friends and family one hasnt seen in a while, I found that out when I went to my grammas funeral a couple years ago, was so sad, but yet neat to see some small townspeople I havnet seen in a long time and some cousins as well, so funny now that our kids are playing together instead of us...so was neat but sad, but I think gramma was glad to see us all together, remembering good times...keeping you in prayers...:0)
Take care all...gotta run get things done...:0)

Silly, no snow yet. It's been very cold, but no snow. I'd rather have the snow if it's going to be this cold. It's been in the teens at night and high 30's to low 40's during the day. I just hope it doesn't wait until Christmas when my daughter and her family are coming over the mountain to visit. I'd like it to be clear roads for their travels. We'll see what the Lord has in store for us.

Direct Quote from the Green One:

"This one is a no-cooking one!! EASY PEASY!!

RUM BALLS

CRUSH 3 CUPS WORTH OF VANILLA WAFERS
ADD A CUP OF CRUSHED WALNUTS (OPTIONAL)
ADD 1 CUP SWEETENED CONDENSED MILK (EAGLE BRAND)
1/3 CUP OF RUM (OR BOURBON) - this can be optional too
BLEND ALL THESE INGREDIENTS AND CHILL FOR ONE HOUR
AFTER CHILLING, using a teaspoon for measurement SHAPE INTO LITTLE BALLS THEN, ROLL IN 10X POWDERED SUGAR
STORE IN REFRIGERATOR

DELISH - EVEN WITH TEA!"

I don't think it's babysitting keeping her away do you!?!
We know you are not eating this with the tea Greenie there is more than 1/3 cup rum in one of those bottles!!!

Where is everybody? We are all busy with the holidays. We are having our Christmas on the 22nd because my Grand daughter has to work Christmas day. So I am pushed a little more to get everything done. I am usually baking and candy making then. I always make a big plate of goodies for several people. I'm not going to do as much this year. If all that stuff is here I just want to eat it and let me tell you this behind can't stand much more! My husbands birthday is 1-1 so I am having a few people over for dinner. I'm going to cook Prime Rib and all the goodies to go with it. Probably his very favorite desert is banana cream pie so I'll make a couple. After that I have got to diet. I have got to get some of this weight off of me.

CA we had a few inches of snow Monday. Supposed to get more tomorrow and tomorrow night. How about you?

Well ladies have a good evening.

Silly, our family Christmas will be on the 28th because my son and DIL have Wed. and Thurs. off. My DD from Calif. will be coming over and staying at Circus Circus Hotel. I'll be busy then! I have to find gluten free recipes because of my DGD, but Betty Crocker has gluten free mixes that you can start with.

No snow yet! It was 13 yesterday and 16 this morning. It should make it to the low 40's today, but no snow!! They say there MIGHT be a chance on Tuesday for a little snow, but that's it! Cold and dry!! Can't do a thing with my hair!! LOL!

Maddie has been sick with a cold, Eddie is home today with it, and I am feeling some of the symptoms, too. Add to all that, my mom is Lucy Goosey, and you know my life is interesting right now! I need to get one more tissue box cover done (that makes 16 that I've made this year) and then cut out stuff for more boxes because I'm having a class on how to make them next Friday. Busy, Busy!! Oh, and I have gifts to wrap and 4 more to buy! It just never ends, does it!

Eddie rescued a young kitty that he wants to keep. Life goes on.

CA you are right...it never ends! Yesterday I went to buy wreaths for my husbands parents, my Mom and our son and it was going to cost me over 100.00. I didn't buy them. Those are really for our comfort not theirs. I'm still going to get something but I may go out and get greenery from some of my pine trees and make it myself. If that sounds chinsy I can't help it. I just don't buy things when I feel its a ripoff. I have pine trees that have the little blue things on them. They're really pretty. I've made things for my house using them b4.

Oh I went to this floral shop yesterday and I felt like a little kid going to a toy store. They had the most beautiful trees. Decorated to the hilt. To have the whole tree I bet it would cost 7-8 hundred dollars.

Well I off to got to Mikes and HL. My paper cutter broke on me. I think I am going to see if I can get one of the Tonic Guillotine like Wenchie bought. She really liked it.

I have a beautiful cabinet for the TV downstairs. Well we bought a flat screen for downstairs yesterday and of course we can't use the cabinet. I have an antique sewing machine and we put it on there. So my wonderful husband is going to make shelves inside the cabinet for me for more storage for stamping goodies!! I need the space so bad. It should be a great help.

I'll talk to you ladies later.

I believe it's my turn for the challenge next week. I challenge you to make an all white Christmas card. You can use one other color but try to keep it as minimal as possible and use at least three layers. HO HO HO Merry Christmas!

Well, there was some confusion about the correct date, I think, but I believe that Sistah Tater's BD was this past week on DEC 7th, and I am remiss in wishing her a wonderful day - will be sending off her card (unfortunately AFTER I mail off Christmas cards this weekend, so she will be getting some backwards mail - not that the PO doesn't do that sometimes anyway!!

BELATED BIRTHDAY GREETING, SWEET TATER!! I do love you - just been a crazy week and it slipped my mind with everything going on - I should know better - my Mary's BD is the day after Christmas, but she always manages to keep it separated!!

TIME TO PAR-TAY, TATER!!

Ok....how do you place a link here from youtube? I found the version of Mary Did You Know sung by Rascal Flatts that I wanted to share here, but tried and failed to link it here. What is the secret?

I open a link to whatever song I want to share (in a second window) - copy and paste from the second window, then come back to this window on SCS, and paste. If that doesn't work, send it to me in an email and I will give it a shot!!

Hi all. I have been MIA from here lately. Just really busy like the rest of you. I usually have my Christmas cards done by October but I just finished them today! They are all ready to go to the po tomorrow.

Tater happy belated birthday! I'm sorry I never even checked the list this month. I hope you had a great day. Are you feeling better?

Well I imagine Pat is on her way home. I'm sure she hated to leave her children but I bet she has had a great time.

Lesley how is your husband doing with his shoulder?

CA how are you doing? How about your Mom and Eddie. Did you all shake the colds? It was in the high 40's today with sunshine. The weather is weird.

Sue glad to know I'm not the only one just finishing up cards!

Brat oh Brat where are you??

Well I hope everyone has a great week ahead.

Y'all Sistahs are the best. Yes, I had a terrific B-day. 61!!!!! Wow. Doesn't seem so old now. I had four different parties and I was so good..........not one drop of sugar passed these here lips!!!! I'm trying really hard to take better care of myself as this last illness was a real wake up call. Yes, I am feeling better and better. Still do not have my "normal" strength level back but I can see it on the horizon! Gotta go and work on an All White Christmas card now; this one is gonna be tuff!

Well, it's only 6:23 a.m. here and I'm freezing. I woke up before 5 because I was cold. I checked the temp on my thermostat and it was only 60, but it was set for 72. It seems there's something wrong with the heater. Just cold air is coming out of the vents now. The heat just doesn't turn on. Now it's 59 in here. I won't wake up my mom until we can get a little heat. I'll have to try calling a heat/AC company at 8:00. I wonder how cold it will be in here by then. I have some space heaters in the garage. I think I'll get a couple out and make use of them!! My fingers are cold!! LOL!

Tate, I'm so glad you had a nice birthday!! You are such a good girl for not eating all the sugar!!

I have ten boxes to cut out, and I have to get those done today when I'm not babysitting Maddie!! It better warm up around here!!!! LOL! You all have a wonderful Monday!! LYMI
