New News

Well, in a week I will be heading 
out to FL for 2 months! I can't wait! 
Nothing like warmer weather 
to make a person feel better! 
Before I leave I wanted 
to draw attention to a couple 
of new Page tabs I've started
 on my blog.  Be sure to check 
them out periodically. 
Some are under construction 
and don't have things
 posted to them as of yet. I will 
be adding more posts etc. 
once I'm in FL and when the 
weather is gloomy there. 
lol or...in the evening! hehe
I'm looking forward to 
getting involved in some 
of the challenges again.  I
 make lots of cards 
but forget to try in
 the challenges. hmmm

Also, next week will be the finally challenges 
for MFP Color and Inspirational. Boo! I really 
enjoyed working in these but I was blessed enough 
to be put into MFP Senior Design Team and the 
Speedy Fox and Friends Challenge. I will 
be starting up in March so be on the lookout.

Happy New Year


I pray that 2015 will be happy, healthy, and filled with love.
Let's keep our eyes on Jesus and perhaps become more like Him.

Merry Christmas To ALL!

I hope and pray that this Christmas season was a blessing of good health, family, love and joy! I had my daughters home and we had some wonderful family time! Sadly, Heather had to work some of the time. Apparently our 911 dispatchers have to work 24/7/365...imagine that! What a gift they are to us, as well as our emergency and health care people, police, fire fighters and our military.

Here are the cards I've received from such gifted friends!! I get so excited receiving homemade cards!

The first one is from Terri Winske! It's really shimmery and pretty. I love the "Believe". 


Here's a cutie card from Sue Chaney!! As always, I love the adorable images she uses. Sue colors so softly and the glittery touches really made it pretty! She embellishes so nicely!



And, yes, it IS a Vada Schutz tag! How I love her vintage looks. Beautiful detailing and colors!!



 Linda Clark made a very cute Christmas card and I recognize The Angel Company stamps.  



This gorgeous card was from Nancy Klessig!! The colors and details are amazing!



The true meaning of Christmas was displayed so lovely in this card from Penny Yoder! Great coloring and the "star" was a perfect touch for this card!! AMEN!



Yep, this is such a GREAT card! I love the punched out windows for the little snowmen faces. Snowflake is beautiful and the faces inside look so stinkin' cute too!



This sparkly WOWser is from Judy Meyers. The holographic background paper is awesome!



Last, and certainly not least, is this Reason for the Season card from Gerri Morgan! The gold shimmer paper and glitter embossed image make this look so rich!!


Thank you ALL for helping make my Christmas so special!!
Merry Christmas from the Tiedtkes!!

Merry Christmas!

Here are a couple of the cards I mailed out for Christmas. I didn't send as many as I had wanted to, I was pooped out!! lol!! AND, I've added MORE names for next year. Perhaps I should start making the cards NOW! uh...NO!
