Luzern, Switzerland

I hope everyone enjoyed their Thanksgiving Day! It's my favorite holiday hands down. It's a celebration of reflecting back on your year and seeing how God has blessed you in your life. I love the way it brings together friends and family to eat a lot of food and enjoy each other's company.
My son Luis and I went to Luzern, Switzerland yesterday. We had a fantastic time. I love being able to stroll the streets in Europe. Learning about the history and visiting lots of churches. The architectural detail in churches are amazing in Europe. I just wanted to share a few photos of our Luzern trip.

Look at those beautiful Swiss Alps in the background!

Here I am on the Mill Bridge...

My son Luis and I are on the street in downtown Luzern close to the shopping district.

Here is a picture of the Jesuit Church of Luzern on the inside. It was absolutely amazing.
That's all I have for today. We're spending the rest of the day just in our pj's because we all have colds coming on. We took a long nap this afternoon and now I'm ready to check out some blogs and maybe make a few cards to share tomorrow.
Everyone enjoy their Sunday!

Simple Snowflake

Hey everyone! This week is so busy!! I'm sure it is for everyone out there. I've been working on more Christmas cards. Luckily I'm almost finished. I anticipate being finished by Sunday so they can be in the mail by Monday! I just wanted to make a very simple Christmas card so that I won't be spending my entire free time in my stamp room. My husband is away in another country for the next few months for work so I'm playing single mom and must keep the kids busy. I love the way this card turned out. It's so simple and sparkly. I debated about sponging white ink all around the edges but I really like the simplicity of the way it is. I used the Snowflake Additions stamp set by Papertrey ink. Cute cute set by the way! I embossed the sentiment "the world is your" in winter white embossing powder. I'm keeping it short because I've got 12 loaves of Pumpkin bread to make today. Each one of my close friends is getting a loaf for I need to start baking. I hope each one of you have a very blessed Thanksgiving.

Happy Turkey Day

I had time today to participate in Julee's Mojo Monday challenge. The kids are off of school today and tomorrow for parent teacher conferences so I'm hoping to get a lot of stamping time in. Mojo Monday #60 is a super cute sketch! I'll be using this sketch pretty often I think. These are my Thanksgiving cards for this year. I better get them out soon. I think it takes about 2 weeks for regular cards to get to the states from here. Oh well they might be a little late but it's the thought that counts right? I used Turkey Day from Sweet N Sassy stamps. I'll have to come back later with supplies used.

Late Halloween post

Once again life has become super busy with this household. I just wanted to post a super late picture of a few of the Halloween jars I made for neighbors and friends. I went to all the thrift stores on the three bases around and picked up jars or canisters whenever I saw one that I could decorate and put candy in. I think these two came out pretty cute they went to two of my neighbors. The german kids loved them!
