What's Next to My Kitchen Counter

On Saturday, my daughter Crystal and I were shopping and found these great letters on sale at Hobby Lobby for 98 cents each. She had seen this idea on Pinterest so we tried it out. I love how fun this makes my china cabinet look.

There was also a card on my Kitchen Counter today (along with a broccoli and rice casserole in the crockpot). I cased THIS wonderful card in the Featured Stamper Challenge at Splitcoast Stampers (Julie Dinn is the Featured Stamper). Crystal and I also made lots of fabric rosettes yesterday and I thought one would look great on a card.

I am so in a Christmas Spirit! Hope you had a great weekend. Hugz!


  1. Cute idea with the letters, Nancy. You have the best time crafting with your daughter. I'm turning green. :-)
    You two made some very pretty rosettes, too, and your card is so pretty.
    I'm trying to get in the Christmas spirit. Maybe after Thanksgiving it'll hit me. I sure hope so.
