Good Monday Morning Dreamers! It is a great day here in Oklahoma, but always subject to change! Our weather changes more often than stop lights! Here is the sizes that I promised you in Simple Sunday Live! yesterday. I got my inspiration from Candy Ford. She had made a fancy fold card, which didn't fit into a simple day. I used her dimensions and put it flat on my card base. It is so easy to C.A.S.E. (copy and share exactly). Just remember your card sizes and then guess!Cherry Cobbler: Card Base 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" score at 4-1/4"

Good morning Dreamers! It is another late night (early morning?) post from me! Something woke me at 3 a.m. and when I was still awake an hour later, decided to at least be productive! Blogging seems to be the hardest thing to find time to do, with distance learning going on at my house! My 7th grade grandson takes over my design space and my computer 5 days a week now! It may or may not get better soon, as no one in Oklahoma takes it serious. Except my friend Patty! Who I miss!
Yesterday was a beautiful day in Sand Springs. I say it was, but the only time I went outside was to chase my dogs back into the fence! They are quite the escape artists. Hubby was at a friend's house all weekend, so I had time to myself on Saturday. It was a treasure that I filled with crafting, designing Facebook posts and eating nothing but vegetables and 2 small ribs. Heaven!
So Simple Sunday was so simple. I opened my October Paper Pumpkin and made 2 of the cards. Just as they come from the kit. You can watch my video here. I wish more people understood how relaxing it is to put a kit together. Follow their pictures and BOOM! you are finished. And they are so beginner friendly! And for $20, I got an Ink Spot (Just Jade this month!), a set of stamps, die cuts, twine, card bases, envelopes...even dimensionals and glue dots.
I also made an alternative. This set was simple to do that with. Here is my recipe:
- 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" Cherry Cobbler cardstock. score at 4 1/4" fold; cut 3 1/4" square
- Cut one card base from kit in half. Trim back piece to 5 1/4" x 4"
- Cut DSP of choice, 5" x 3 3/4" (I used Classic Christmas, an exclusive available until Jan. 4)
- October 2020 Paper Pumpkin kit

Boy, Monday's are rough! I have discovered that in order to post "Simple Sunday on a Monday", I may have to type it up on Saturday! I am Distance Learning one of our grandchildren. Her brother started school last week, but we don't feel it is safe for her yet. Hopefully in January! So my days are filled with 3rd grade educating...it wears me out. Because of her autism, her reading is delayed, making every subject with Grandma right beside her. I usually take a meditation break for lunch....need my sanity.
But I really want to share these cards with you. Simple Sunday is my FaceBook Live that I do every Sunday at 3:00. Sometimes it isn't live, but recorded. I only have 2 days without the kids! I do a simple card, geared for those who are just beginning. Or like this week, for my busy friends who need to have several cards done at once!
Christmas is creeping up on us fast! And there is just so much time to get those cards in the mail. In my live, I talked about spreading you stamping time out over several days. If you are like me, you are in front of the television watchin your 8:00 and 9:00 shows.
- Monday during "All Rise", I cut out my card bases, score them
- Tuesday during "NCIS & FBI". I cut the DSP and sentiment squares
- Wednesday there is nothing now to watch, so I go to my studio and stamp
- Thursday (on this card) I would tie all my ribbons
- Friday is always in my studio (after my Mystery Card class) I glue them together! Now, that is if I needed alot to get finished. It gives you a little creativity every night and it is not as overwhelming at once.
