Took a blog break


Whew! I didn't plan to take such a long break from my blog. I guess the holidays and the craft room project took their toll. My craft room isn't done yet but it's getting closer. My husband completed the ceiling and lights. There's still more to do but I can actually sit down and stamp now.

For those of you who asked, yes, the ham got done on Christmas. It didn't turn out to be a problem at all. As far as the Maid Rites from Christmas Eve. There isn't really a recipe. They just browned the ground beef, drained it, added salt and pepper and beef broth. They cooked the mixture until the beef broth cooked down. It took about an hour or so but they were cooking 5 pounds of ground beef. It might be shorter for a smaller amount of beef.

Now on to my latest card. I haven't sat down and stamped for almost 2 weeks. I'm feeling a little rusty. This card is for my friend Ellen who has a birthday coming up. Now I just have to get it in the mail. That's the hard part for me. I have a hard time getting it addressed, stamped and mailed.

Very cute card! I'm with you on the mailing part. I tell people I make cards - I just don't actually send them LOL!

Have a great 2008!

Funny that is the hard part for me too. Wonder why? It really is a mystery to me as to why getting a card I spent so much time on mailed. All i have to do is run down my driveway, stick it in te mail box and put up the red flag!! Sheesh, a whole 30 or so steps, LOL. it is really a strange condition, hehehehehe

This is SO CUTE! I'm loving this set . . . maybe I NEED to make a purchase. I love the way you colored in the image. It's so funny that you say that about actually sending the card . . . that's EXACTLY me. I have no problem whatsoever making the card, but when it comes to mailing it, I fail miserably! Too strange! Happy New Year!!
