Productive Weekend ... Rake UpDay #3

It was one of those weekends where I was productive in tackling my more pressing to-do list (see my 30 Days of Thankful Day #3 post) and worked in my more creative list.  I'm big on list making and scratching - something about scrubbing out that item makes me feel accomplished.  Sad.  I printed February's Take 12 photos and hope to find my March photos - my computer started downloading my photos according to the download date, instead of the date taken, so it takes me a few tries to zero in on the right folder.  I also printed out all my pages (photo below) for my 30 Days of Thankful.  I need to cut them all out, but they're printed.  The first four days are happily completed AND tucked in the album, which I need to cover; it's an American Crafts covered spine with naked chipboard covers.
I'm also cruising pretty good on chores, laundry is almost done and have sort of finished my menu for the week.  This week is a little more crowded than the past few soccer-free weeks., so if I can kick of Monday well, I have a good shot at staying on top of the chaos.  All-in-all I'm feeling good.
Ah. . .Pinterest.  How I love thee.  You make Rake Up Day #3 a little easier.  I saw a couple people (including myself) who had Christmas cards on their lists.  When it comes to the bulk of my Christmas cards, I like something quick and easy for reproduction.  This card fits that requirement to a "T."  Now, if I didn't already have a stash of cards just two-steps from being complete, you'd better bet your bottom I'd be heading to Archivers for a big snowflake punch.  I love the Ice Blue, but Cranberry or even an Apple Green would be fun colors for this card.  If your Rake Up goals are for layouts or cards, use the simple color scheme, or the theme of the card to produce your layout or card today.

If you haven't left your list of Rake Up Goals and you want to take part, you can leave your comment attached to the post HERE. I am reading them and looking for ways to help you complete your lists.

Note: As you complete your projects, leave a comment under any Rake Up post sharing what you completed. If you've got a photo to share, include the link.

I need to keep rolling along - I have my knitting project to cast on today before class tomorrow.  We've started our projects (or we're supposed to have them started. . .eek!)

I am caught up with the Online Card Classes Holiday Card Workshop through today. It was a productive weekend and I made quite a few holiday cards. You can view my work at

I was inspired by the soft blues and the snowy theme of the inspiration. I used some older stash too!
